  • "When it came time to find entertainment for our wedding, my wife and I knew exactly what we wanted: John Parker.

    We had heard him perform at another wedding we went to and we both noted to ourself just how much John could bring the crowd to life and how engaging he was. It was simply the best wedding experience we have ever had and we wanted to have that same.

    We were blown away. Everyone of our guests said just how great the band was and how he really made the party happen and come to life. We can’t thank you enough for making our special day, that much more special."

    -- Chris & Emily Dazen

  • "The band was incredible in both sound and accommodation. 

    They played amazing music at a sound level perfect for guests to still be able to converse during dinner and then raised it up to get everyone dancing for a great party.

    I can report that most all my guests said this was the best party they had ever attended and the band was a big part."

    They played non-stop and kept the dance floor packed the entire evening.

    We still have guests months later telling us how wonderful the band was at our wedding and how much fun they had dancing the night away.

  • "I absolutely loved working with John Parker and his band.

    He was super responsive to emails, easy to talk to on the phone, and very, VERY good at his job.

    The band even learned a new song for [our] first dance, which was terrific.. His acoustic guitarist played our cocktail hour & everyone loved it.

    John and his band sounded amazing and kept the dance floor lively, and they brought their own lights, which gave the space around the band a fun feel. They were wonderful!

    Highly, highly recommend!"

    I cannot tell you how many people asked where we found you guys… because everyone wants to have you play at their wedding too!

    I truly cannot thank you and your band enough for making our day absolutely amazing. I have never been to a wedding where when the lights turn on at the end of the night the dance floor was full, but you did tell me that would be the case and you did not disappoint.

    Thank You, thank you, thank you, Bri "

  • "Thank YOU John!  You all were wonderful.

      Rodney and I were adamant about having good food and good music, but we went back and forth about the amount of money we were going to be spending…  we paid for almost everything ourselves, and have been saving every penny possible so that our wedding was our dream. 

    ...we both agreed that it was money well spent.  Everyone raved about you, and I believe you will be contacted by others that were at our wedding for weddings coming up in their families.

        Thank you again…" Hillary Morgan

  • "...we could not have been happier with you and your band. Our family and friends are still talking about how much fun the band was.

    I thought you would like what we did when you performed Bohemian Rhapsody haha. Our group is also just a bit silly so it is the perfect storm when you add an open bar to the mix.

    We did have a videographer and he said he got us both playing with the band on Don't Stop Believing!

    and Many thanks for helping us coordinate everything. It was a true success and we had an awesome time!

    My family and the committee felt that you had a nice mix of very current music and also oldies but goodies. In a crowd of all ages, that makes it a must which was obvious by the number of people dancing.

    We also want to let you know how much we appreciated how well you were received by the whole group thank you to you & the band for all your efforts in making an enjoyable night.."
