reviews..
  • "I absolutely loved working with John Parker and his band.

    He was super responsive to emails, easy to talk to on the phone, and very, VERY good at his job.

    The band even learned a new song for [our] first dance, which was terrific.. His acoustic guitarist played our cocktail hour & everyone loved it.

    John and his band sounded amazing and kept the dance floor lively, and they brought their own lights, which gave the space around the band a fun feel. They were wonderful!

    Highly, highly recommend!"

  • "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

  • "When it came time to find entertainment for our wedding, my wife and I knew exactly what we wanted: John Parker.

    We had heard him perform at another wedding we went to and we both noted to ourself just how much John could bring the crowd to life and how engaging he was. It was simply the best wedding experience we have ever had and we wanted to have that same.

    We were blown away. Everyone of our guests said just how great the band was and how he really made the party happen and come to life. We can’t thank you enough for making our special day, that much more special."

  • "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

  • "...We would like to say THANK YOU! You and your band made our wedding awesome. Everyone was raving about you and your band's talents. From your range, depth, and selection everyone had a great time....Several couples have already approached us about contacting your band in the future. Just like the website shows and our guests did too, you guys get people out there on the dance floor having fun and letting loose, wanting to get a picture and sing with you. We can't convey in words truly what a wonderful day we had and reception with your band's performance. We really do hope to see your band in the future many times at weddings or perhaps other events. You are a sincere, genuine person and a pleasure to work with during our wedding stress, and not to mention an amazing performer. We would be happy to recommend you to anyone..." - Kevin & Lindsay Mullaney
