  • "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."

    READ JOHN PARKER BAND REVIEWS

Be Smart!

You can contact our reviews! - many other bands' "reviews" are written by the bands themselves, & promoted by websites that SELL them advertising on big wedding vendor sites. Sad, but true.

as in 100% of them!because the reviews you see here are REAL John Parker band clients who YOU can call or email to talk to about how the JP band made their wedding, party, or gala great!

PS: we're SORRY! - We don't stuff a camera or phone in our clients face at the end of the night to make them give us a video testimonial - It's rude, it's incredibly tacky, & we're not going to do that to people (including YOU)! (but, hey, if that's your thing, not to worry - there's plenty of other bands that will! :)

Want clients' email addresses & phone numbers? GREAT - we can give you hundreds! You can then talk to people when it's NOT the end of their wedding or event & they're trying to say goodbye to their guests - LOL

AND KNOW; a lot of companies have "no negative reviews" clauses in their contracts (we do not) - and many PAY for positive reviews (yep, really)

JP has no "twin" or "lookalike" These days, many so-called "bands" are just companies that send out different musicians using the SAME band name for different events all across the country! - so a review for them means literally nothing because you have NO idea exactly who YOU will be getting. Does that seem good? Not to us.

Need someone professional, experienced, dependable & AWESOME that you can COUNT on? - JP was personally at EVERY event reviewed here, & John will personally be at YOUR event too!


With most bands you really don't know WHAT you're going to get. With John Parker - you DO!


  • John, everyone praised the reunion - in no small part it was the awesome success of the band we selected!

    You did a super job and your sound was pure with music from our era plus a little sprinkling here and there of all the eras.

    Your pure sound, showmanship and music selection were superb and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Again thank you for a great performance! Best, Alex

    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."
