reviews from all kinds of parties..
  • “We were beyond impressed with John Parker's performance, professionalism and the ease of working with him for our Palm Beach destination wedding.

    All we've heard from our guests since the wedding (mostly from NYC) was how they were completely blown away by his performance, and we couldn't agree more!

    John and band were fantastic, from his & female vocalist's voices and the band & sound, to his upbeat emceeing and ability to keep everyone on the dance floor throughout the night.

    We're incredibly grateful to JP for making our special day absolutely unforgettable. Thank you John!”

  • “John Parker was SO organized and professional, he made everything very easy.

    Kept us organized through the whole process from the beginning when we first met & booked the band - up until our wedding day. He was with us & quick to help whenever we needed advice or suggestions.

    When it came to the band, we were blown away.. our guests all danced endlessly & the band was so fun.

    All in all can't say enough good things about our experience with JP! Our friends and family keep telling us about “that band”, even now, weeks later.. Best wedding ever!”

  • “We saw John at another wedding and had to try to get him for ours..

    He and his band were really fun and popular with our guests.

    Def knows how to handle the crowd and keep them dancing, and is way better vs. others we had seen at our friends' weddings. (they said that too!)

    So glad we were able to get him, very highly recommended!”

  • “John & band were nothing short of amazing at our reception, & he was always very helpful throughout the process.

    We did not have to worry about anything!

    My husband & many of our guests are in the performing arts & we really appreciated their playing & singing, and people won't stop telling us we need to plan another party have them again.

    Really appreciate you all being with us on our special day. Thank you JP!”

  • “This band is worth every penny. JP MAKES the wedding. (This was actually my 3rd JPB performance. We literally planned our wedding date around his availability.)

    My tip (besides hiring this band): Don't give them too many music recommendations. Give them a general idea of what you like & don't, and let John read the room — he's a PRO at it..

    The band even learned our first dance song just for our wedding, as it wasn't on their list of 1,000 tracks they already knew — we hadn't expected it, and it was a sweet surprise.

    thank you!”

    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++++"
