“Vegas Live!” was the theme for the 2013 Young Patronesses of the Opera gala held this November at the JW Marriott Hotel, and renowned local entertainers John Parker Band brought the theme to life with a dynamic show worthy of any Las Vegas stage!


As their website explains, the Young Patronesses of the Opera (YPO) “is a non-profit organization whose mission is to cultivate, promote, foster, sponsor, educate and develop the understanding, taste and love of opera in our community.” The organization is comprised of nearly 100 women who volunteer their time to the mission and bring opera education and opportunities to children and adults.

These ladies are tireless in their efforts, and they know how to party too! The 2013 gala shimmered with all the glitz and fun of Vegas, and the band had a blast performing for everyone who came out to generously support the organization.

YPO leaders and supporters even joined the band for a few songs, and president-elect Lee sent us the fantastic photo above! After the event, she wrote, “Thank you for a great job, and being so wonderful to work with. I have encouraged [the President Elect for next year] to use your wonderful band and assured her that you will work with whatever their theme is.”

Thank you to Lee and to the ladies of YPO! It was certainly a night to remember, and we look forward to working with you again for future galas!

At the end of January, The John Parker Band helped HistoryMiami celebrate their 70th anniversary at their first-ever Gala!

This event combined elegance and fun with a “Moon Over Miami” theme. Palm Beach’s John Parker Band, who played a significant role in an entertaining evening of 1940’s glamour by playing dancing music from all eras, was thrilled to be a part of this fundraising event. Entertainment abounded the entire evening– cocktail hour featured synchronized swimmers while the John Parker Band’s Jazz/Latin Trio played poolside!
