  • "I want you to know that we were 100% thrilled with the JPB - could not have been happier. You are so talented - you totally nailed every song that you sang -you were unbelievable! Perfection! I was blown away right out of the gate.

    I think I told you the night of the wedding but again, every guest I spoke with was like, “where did you find that band?” or “That band is fabulous” So much positive feedback.

    Thank you so much - it truly is the band that controls the energy and makes a party! Well what a party it was. Thanks also for being so professional, I’m sure glad we booked you first!!

    I sure hope we get to see you at another wedding soon.."

  • "..it was excellent! We were very pleased with how you worked with us from the beginning to get our first-dance and parent dances just right.

    We were also so impressed with the musicality and professionalism of John and the band. Some requests were made right on the spot and John was able to transition right into these special songs. John also kept the night moving smoothly as a great emcee.

    Overall, we couldn't be happier. You made our special day even that much more special. We are very grateful for all of the hard work and dedication you put into our evening."

    I saw a video of you while looking for a band for my daughter’s wedding, and although I couldn’t get you I knew the Mardi Gras couldn't afford NOT to have you.

    ...and as they say, the rest is history! You are amazing!"

  • "...We would like to say THANK YOU! You and your band made our wedding awesome. Everyone was raving about you and your band's talents. From your range, depth, and selection everyone had a great time....Several couples have already approached us about contacting your band in the future. Just like the website shows and our guests did too, you guys get people out there on the dance floor having fun and letting loose, wanting to get a picture and sing with you. We can't convey in words truly what a wonderful day we had and reception with your band's performance. We really do hope to see your band in the future many times at weddings or perhaps other events. You are a sincere, genuine person and a pleasure to work with during our wedding stress, and not to mention an amazing performer. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone..." - Kevin & Lindsay Mullaney

  • "Your band was AWESOME!!! We had countless friends and family inquiring about the "fantastic band."

    My favorite comment was 'I mean WHO can do Michael Jackson, Andrea Boccelli, Neil Diamond, Bruno Mars, Frank Sinatra, Etta James and the O' Jays and sound just like all of them!!!!'

    I am still dancing this morning!!

    Thank you!!!!"

    Thank you so much for everything, wishing you the best!

only ONE John Parker Band - So you ALWAYS get John Parker

These days most other "band names" MAKE more bands with the same name - so they can have 2,3,4,12 (whatever) groups with the same band names with random musicians.. So you really have NO idea exactly what you're going to get... Isn't that scary? Yep. For YOUR wedding? Nope.

Non-Stop High Energy dancing FUN - for EVERYBODY!

Non-stop dance music for ALL - with the best mix of classic and new FUN, yet tasteful, songs. DANCING THAT NEVER STOPS - with the interesting FUN-to-watch interaction & excitement of an awesome live band!

Band breaks are for sissies. Ok we're kidding, A lot of other bands need breaks. But during YOUR wedding? Not us. :)

YOUR Wedding - not OUR show!

Yes it's YOUR wedding ..not OUR "show" - the focus is on YOU & your guests all having FUN! - from beginning to end.

We tastefully & energetically entertain, but we don't have choreographed show dancing or inappropriate loud or revealing outfits - instead we play & sing while YOU - YOUR FRIENDS - & YOUR FAMILY DANCE! Music for EVERYONE presented in a style that's super-entertaining; all in a way that doesn't steal the spotlight.

Professional & Fun Emceeing keeps your wedding ON TRACK!

Classy (yet NOT stuffy), Fun & Energy packed (yet cheese-free) Professional Emceeing that keeps your wedding moving! Attention to detail & consulting with you means your family & wedding party members's names are pronounced correctly - & in very articulate & easy to understand English!

Energetic Personality Packed Wedding Band with Enthusiasm, Style & Class

A Wedding you can be proud of, because you have a top quality & super fun live band - but with a classy look, dress, behavior & sound that's NOT stuffy - but that puts the right face on your reception! NO bar band level of dress, cleanliness & style, NO harsh & overbearing club band sound, NO inappropriate bar band "banter" said to your guests & nobody drunk or "wasted" on who knows what.

Super Detailed & Organized to Keep you on track!

We keep you on track both before & at your wedding with super-detail-oriented & customized planning help! You have customized planning forms that help you get it 100% right. And John Parker, along with his professional office staff, are here to help you every step of the way!!

Endless Wedding Experience by someone you can COUNT on!

NOT a band name no one taking charge - John Parker has the EXPERIENCE that only years of doing the nicest weddings all over the country can bring;
- Experience to help you decide what works best with the flow & etiquette of your wedding.
- Experience to know the songs - ALL OF THEM - you need to make it awesome for ALL!
- Experience to handle ANY unforeseen changes (that WILL happen) with style & grace
- Experience to tactfully & deftly coordinate with ALL your vendors for a seamless Wedding day!
- Experience to KEEP YOUR WEDDING GOING - without YOU having to worry about ANYTHING.


Always Tasty - Never Inappropriate!

No "where my Mo-Fo's at" lyrics.. No circus like "Aerobics Competition" band dancing, or "Vegas showgirls" dress (we feel the bride should be the girl everyone wants to look at) No huge "clump" of front vocalist/dancers just to have "more people" (hint: "more" vocalists is not better - "better" is better) And no tacky "lets get ready to rumble" emcee yelling. Save the cheese for the hors d'oeuvres! :)

A Professional You Can Count On

This isn't some newbie or franchised band who, though they have a cool website, may not be around when your wedding day finally arrives. John Parker has been a #1 a name in entertainment that is known across the US for over 20 years - For the very best wedding band entertainment - you can COUNT on John!

JP has performed with & for stars - but WHO CARES?

Yep, John Parker has appeared on TV shows, the radio, & has toured internationally with stars with #1 hit records - but WHO REALLY CARES?

Seriously, what YOU should care about is how good YOUR wedding is! :) Bands that list this blather on their websites about who they played with is usually BS & truly means NOTHING as to how fun/good YOUR wedding is going to be. Word.
