    All of our guests cannot stop remarking about what a fun wedding we had and how good the band was.

    John was extremely professional and organized the whole time. He made sure to hit all of our "must play songs" in and even sang two songs in Italian! It's amazing to hear the range and skill level of the band.

    If you want your wedding to be the most fun dance party, look no further than John Parker Band"

    I thought you would like what we did when you performed Bohemian Rhapsody haha. Our group is also just a bit silly so it is the perfect storm when you add an open bar to the mix.

    We did have a videographer and he said he got us both playing with the band on Don't Stop Believing!

    and Many thanks for helping us coordinate everything. It was a true success and we had an awesome time!

    READ JOHN PARKER BAND REVIEWS

Be Smart!

ALL of THESE reviews are of John Parker & his ONE band! - SO many companies sell the SAME band name MANY times on the SAME date using COMPLETELY different people - So reviews about them are worthless if you don't get those same people.

You can contact our reviews! - many other bands' "reviews" are written by the bands themselves, & promoted by websites that SELL them advertising on big wedding vendor sites. Sad, but true.

as in you can contact 100% of them!- because the reviews you see here are REAL John Parker band clients who YOU can call or email to talk to about how the JP band made their wedding, party, or gala great!

PS: we're SORRY! - We don't stuff a camera or phone in our clients face at the end of the night to make them give us a video testimonial - It's rude, it's incredibly tacky, & we're not going to do that to people (including YOU)! (but, hey, if that's your thing, not to worry - there's plenty of other bands that will! :)

Want clients' email addresses & phone numbers? GREAT - we can give you hundreds! You can then talk to people when it's NOT the end of their wedding or event & they're trying to say goodbye to their guests - LOL

AND KNOW; a lot of companies have "no negative reviews" clauses in their contracts (we do NOT) - and many PAY for positive reviews (yep, really) We think that's BS.

JP has no "twin" or "lookalike" - As nowadays so many "bands" are just companies that send out random musicians using the SAME band name for different events all across the country! - so a review for them means literally nothing because you have NO idea exactly who YOU will be getting. Does that seem good? Not to us.

Need someone professional, experienced, dependable & AWESOME that you can COUNT on? - JP was personally at EVERY event reviewed here, & John will personally be at YOUR event too!


With most bands you really don't know WHAT you're going to get. With John Parker - you DO!


  • “John is absolutely THE BEST!!

    We had such a great time and so did everyone else! Our guests are still talking about John and your band and what an amazing time they had.

John Parker Impressive Wedding Band Review WW Bride Emily

“It would be hard to imagine a more perfect evening.

    My family and the committee felt that you had a nice mix of very current music and also oldies but goodies. In a crowd of all ages, that makes it a must which was obvious by the number of people dancing.

    We also want to let you know how much we appreciated how well you were received by the whole group thank you to you & the band for all your efforts in making an enjoyable night.."
