About The John Parker Band

John Parker & his band are available exclusively for special events - such as weddings & parties - and some very limited public appearances only.

In these days of bands that have no one you can count on because they keep changing members or their company makes more bands with the same name - John Parker IS ALWAYS THERE AT YOUR EVENT! - and You work directly with HIM! What a concept!

With past clients of over 1000 weddings and parties that range from NFL franchise owners, to US Congressional caucuses, Governors, Fortune 500 executives & more.. John's resume & experience read like an encyclopedia.

Resorts, Corporations, Party & Wedding Planners, and Convention Producers alike call upon John & band to perform when they want a Classy, High quality & FUN live band.

It's LANDING him that's the problem. JP's availability is limited given his popularity & schedule. But with a large staff & multiple equipment setups & vehicles - IF he's open, he'll be there!

JP's the first to tell you, he's not a "show band", & can't exactly dance that well.. but boy can he sing, entertain, and make everyone dance!

Whether performing romantic tunes, to nailing Top-40 dance hits like few can, people who appreciate truly great music , QUALITY singing, and a FUN energetic party inspiring performance - REALLY appreciate the "JOHN PARKER BAND".

John Parker – a brief biography
by Max Michaels

John Parker is indeed what you would call a “veteran” of the entertainment business. Born and raised in central Pennsylvania, he was encouraged by his grandparents -his grandfather a concert violinist, his grandmother a trained vocalist/pianist. From age three until he was twelve, John studied classical piano. As a high school student, John studied extensively under the nationally acclaimed Dr. David Berlin, (noted theory, composition, and electronic music expert) performing concurrently with various basement bands on keyboards, and doing, as he puts it, “a little” singing.

In college John studied business, and performed in his first of many professional bands – playing mostly on weekends in bars and nightclubs. During college, John took to the road, playing keyboards and singing with his band “GIMIX”, and later with a band of his own name. This band performed Hotels, Nightclubs, and Casinos throughout the world, and earned a reputation as one of the East Coast’s most talented acts.

John auditioned and appeared on the television program “Star Search” as a solo vocalist, prompting numerous other appearances, as well as various articles about him, as well as notoriety in the highly competitive studio singing business. It was at this time that John was picked up by several Pittsburgh and New York Talent agencies to do photographic modeling, television commercials, and various singing recording session work. Today John can be seen as a representative for local, regional & national concerns, heard on many radio advertisements, as well as seen on television in various capacities.

Given his notariety on the private party scene, love for his kids & surfing – John Parker is currently available for special events and limited concerts only.

 

John has lived in Manhattan & Las Vegas,
he currently calls Pittsburgh, North Palm Beach & Long Beach Island NJ “home”
with family members & homes in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, North Palm Beach Florida & Beach Haven New Jersey.
