  • "In planning weddings, couples and their families spend so much time obsessing about little details.

    When it’s all over though, people don’t remember what the centerpieces looked like or what the mother-of-bride wore. They remember if they had a great time.

    And everyone at our wedding had a FANTASTIC time, thanks to the John Parker Band!!!"

    Anne Eichenlaub Miscky


  • "You and your band were terrific at the St. Joe's Gala last night"

    "Many thanks for helping to make the event very successful......

    ......for getting the guests seated..... the auction updates etc, etc, etc. "

    Best wishes for continued success!



  • "We couldn't have been happier with the JPBand.

    When people were commenting to us about the wedding one of the first things they said was, "That band was unbelievable!!"

    and "They created such a fun and entertaining atmosphere" We heard it OVER and OVER again. And when it came to the special dances, they nailed every song that was chosen. SO MUCH FUN!!"

    -- Lisa Troyer


  • "John, Wow, you are the real deal!

    From beginning to end you are a true professional, talented artist, Grand MC & businessman. I feel fortunate that we connected with you..

    PS: We gave you 5 stars & would have given you 6 if we could have!"

  • "John, What a great evening, thanks to your entertainment!

    I knew you had things under control. Everyone loved the music, from the cocktail hour to the grand finale, it was just perfect.

    People didn't want to leave. I'm sure our friends will be asking for a referral when their time comes for an event, and we will gladly refer you.

    We look forward to hearing your talent again soon Thank you!"

    -- Marty Knable


  • "John Parker Band: You guys were absolutely amazing!

    I cannot even express how much every detail and effort you put into every song meant to me and my entire family and friends. I am so thankful I was able to have you entertain at my wedding

    Thank you for also being so generous and accommodating to the songs requested and the "wild and rambunctious" crowd we had.

    You all are so wonderful!! I hope you all had as much fun performing as we did dancing and singing along! Thanks again!"

    -- Jaci Masco


  • "...I had so many people approach me that night, referring to the band, saying "best....decision....of your life".

    I might argue that my new husband was the BEST decision, but you and your band were definitely a close second.

    You far exceeded our expectations and the chatter continues about how amazing you were.

    Things like "he is a blessing" says it all..."

    - Emily Hodge 


  • "Hi John, Thank YOU! We were excited that you were able to perform for Anne’s wedding and Dan’s party. I have one simple requirement for a fabulous party: The John Parker Band! The dance floor was always packed, and no one wanted to leave. People were complementing ME, when all I did was call YOU. How can I take credit for that?! Even non-dancers were up there dancing. So many commented on your talent, range of songs, and that the music never stopped for a break. So thanks for making the party such a fun success!.." -- Barb Eichenlaub READ MORE JOHN PARKER BAND REVIEWS

    Every song was perfect and so much fun. My goal was to have our guests say it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and you helped to make that happen.

    Thank you for taking the reins and helping the night to unfold seamlessly! We will never forget the John Parker Band!

    Much love and thanks" - Allie & Elliott

    Thank you Again"

    -- Jim Cooper


  • "I couldn't have asked for a better band for the best night of our lives!!!

    Not only did he do an amazing job with the music selection but he also was a great MC (kept the reception moving, upbeat and a ton of fun).

    Prior to the wedding John and I went through the entire reception- he gave advice, recommendations, went over pronunciation of everyone's names and gave me so much peace of mind that I left the conversation knowing that the reception would be amazing and I didn't have to worry about a thing"

    -- Catie Clar


  • "...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

  • "...Thank you so much for providing the music on our special day!

    We had so many people asking about you and where we found you.

    You did a great job at keeping the energy up and leading us through all the moving parts of the reception.

    Thanks again!.."

    ..Cara and Tim


  • "People are STILL and I do mean STILL talking about the wedding and in particular, the music.. 

    ..There wasn't one minute I would change.  You are consummate professionals and I have a feeling you will be the music of choice for anything our crowd does going forward.  Thank you again - you added to the atmosphere we had hoped to achieve"

    - Christine Martin


  • "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."

    -- David Fischell


  • [at Opera Diamond Horseshoe Gala]

    "..You and your band were FANTASTIC!

    You sounded great, and you were a pleasure to work with.

    Thank so much!..."

    Special Events Director


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

These days most other "band names" are just "mix & match" musicians where the company or agent just MAKES more bands with the same name - So they can have 2 or 5 or 10 (whatever) same-named groups on any night... With that, you really have NO idea exactly what you're going to get... Scary? YES! - For YOUR wedding? uh... NO! - With us, John Parker is personally with & helping you - every step of the way!

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, (sort of) 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 from someone you can COUNT on!

NOT a mere "band name" with no one actually 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 Tasteful - 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 Parker!

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.
