  • “We had the 8 piece JP band for our wedding and John did not disappoint!

    They were great, and given unfortunate experiences my friends had with their bands, we feel lucky we got him.

    Our friends went from their 20s to 30s, & our parents and other guests to their 70s & John got them ALL dancing. He took requests & had an upbeat vibe.

    We’re extremely happy to recommend JPB to anybody wanting fun for everyone & to not have to worry about anything”

    If there was one thing I knew I needed to have at my wedding it was you and your band and boy was it worth the wait!

    I really cannot thank you enough for making things so painless and easy and helping out with the sequence of events, which was flawless to me.

  • “We had JP play for a small wedding on Ocean Key Sunset Pier, 15 people and they played for us like we were a party of 100. I appreciated that.

    The best part was the next day around town we heard how much others liked them! We overheard at the pool how people at the hotel sat out on their balcony to listen to the band.

    The next night at a bar in town we heard a group saying how great the band was at the pier the night before as they were eating dinner, they stayed to listen. I was SO excited to hear that others could enjoy them too.

    Thank you John Parker - You rock! 😀”

    We have received nothing but compliments about you and your band. I cannot thank you enough for all that you pulled together for us.

    We are truly blessed that it turned out so wonderful! Truly incredible!

    Just so you know how much of a good time I had; I NEVER dance unless I've had a few cocktails. The night of our wedding, I barely drank, and was on the dance floor most of the night.

    You guys are truly amazing!”

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
