"My guests rave about two things about my wedding, my Bride.. and John Parker!!
By far the easiest vendor for us to work with, John is well mannered, very conscientious & a consummate professional. He was always available for calls, questions and returned emails quickly.
Oh, and his band is the BEST. His performance kept the dance floor humming all night. Great mix of the classics and brand new top hits all mixed with our requests.
He also handled the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and played emcee. A++++"

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.
