  • "We had SO much fun at the wedding. You and your band were absolutely amazing. Your set list was exactly what I wanted, all my friends and family loved it. Love Hall and Oates, 80's, crazy......

    Every vendor we had at the wedding said it was absolutely the most insane party they have seen. I had 30 people come up to me saying how much did it cost to get you guys..... And I still have the music in my head right now.

    Absolutely amazing, it was one of the best weddings I have ever experienced. If there is anything I can do for you please let me know. If I ever have a party in the near future you will be my first call. Amy and I thank you" -- Patrick Shepard

    I thought the highlight of the night was when Tony got on stage like he was at a AC/DC concert and almost did a stage dive in the middle of the guitar solo.  The look on your face was priceless!!.."

  • "..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 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..."

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.

  • "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!!!"

    One problem, the beer truck complained that beer sales were down sharply while you were playing, due to the high number of people dancing :)

    I hope that someday we get the opportunity to work together again, you have a great team..."

  • "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
