    One problem, the beer truck complained that beer sales were down sharply while you were playing, due to the high number of people dancing :)

the best Wedding

when you want more than just "a band"



These days SO many other "bands" are just "band names" where a company or agent MAKES multiple "bands" with the SAME name - You can look & listen to a seemingly awesome band online - but then it's a bunch of completely different musicians & singers at their "showcase" - And THEN, totally DIFFERENT people yet can show up to your wedding! (oof!) Because they can have 2-6-20 (100, whatever) same-named "bands" on one night... So, you really have NO idea whatsoever WHAT you're going to get - even IF you think you saw "the band".. ("Hey, check out this band we're not really getting" 🙄) Scary? YES! - For YOUR wedding? uh... NO! - With us, John Parker is ALWAYS PERSONALLY with & helping you - every step of the way!

Non-Stop High Energy dancing FUN - for EVERYBODY!

Non-stop dance music for ALL - with the best mix of classic and new FUN, yet tasteful, songs. DANCING THAT NEVER STOPS - with the interesting FUN-to-watch interaction & excitement of an awesome live band!

Band breaks are for sissies. Ok we're kidding, (sort of) A lot of other bands need breaks. But during YOUR wedding? Not us. :)

YOUR Wedding - not OUR Show!

Yes it's YOUR wedding ..not OUR "show" - the focus is on YOU & your guests all having FUN! - from beginning to end.

We tastefully & energetically entertain, but we don't have choreographed show dancing or inappropriate loud or revealing outfits - instead we play & sing while YOU - YOUR FRIENDS - & YOUR FAMILY DANCE! Music for EVERYONE presented in a style that's super-entertaining; all in a way that doesn't steal the spotlight.

Professional & Fun Emceeing keeps your WEDDING on track!

Classy (yet NOT stuffy), Fun & Energy packed (yet cheese-free) Professional Emceeing that keeps your wedding moving! Attention to detail & consulting with you means your family & wedding party members's names are pronounced correctly - & in very articulate & easy to understand English!

Energetic Personality Packed Wedding Band with Enthusiasm, Style & Class

A Wedding you can be proud of, because you have a top quality & super fun live band - but with a classy look, dress, behavior & sound that's NOT stuffy - but that puts the right face on your reception! NO bar band level of dress, cleanliness & style, NO harsh & overbearing club band sound, NO inappropriate bar band "banter" said to your guests & nobody drunk or "wasted" on who knows what.

Super Detailed & Organized helps YOU keep on track!

We keep you on track both before & at your wedding with super-detail-oriented & customized planning help! You have customized planning forms that help you get it 100% right. And John Parker, along with his professional office staff, are here to help you every step of the way!!

Endless Wedding Experience from someone you can COUNT on!

NOT a mere "band name" with no one actually taking charge - John Parker has the EXPERIENCE that only years of doing the nicest weddings all over the country can bring;
- Experience to help you decide what works best with the flow & etiquette of your wedding.
- Experience to know the songs - ALL OF THEM - you need to make it awesome for ALL!
- Experience to handle ANY unforeseen changes (that WILL happen) with style & grace
- Experience to tactfully & deftly coordinate with ALL your vendors for a seamless Wedding day!
- Experience to KEEP YOUR WEDDING GOING - without YOU having to worry about ANYTHING.


Always Tasteful - Never Inappropriate!

No "where my Mo-Fo's at" lyrics.. No circus like "Aerobics Competition" band dancing, or "Vegas showgirls" dress (we feel the bride should be the girl everyone wants to look at) No huge "clump" of front vocalist/dancers just to have "more people" (hint: "more" vocalists is not better - "better" is better) And no tacky "lets get ready to rumble" emcee yelling. Save the cheese for the hors d'oeuvres! :)

A Professional You Can Count On

This isn't some newbie or franchised band who, though they have a cool website, may not be around when your wedding day finally arrives. John Parker has been a #1 a name in entertainment that is known across the US for over 20 years - For the very best wedding band entertainment - you can COUNT on John Parker!

JP has performed with & for stars - but WHO CARES?

Yep, John Parker has appeared on TV shows, the radio, & has toured internationally with stars with #1 hit records - but WHO REALLY CARES?

Seriously, what YOU should care about is how good YOUR wedding is! :) Bands that list this blather on their websites about who they played with is usually BS & truly means NOTHING as to how fun/good YOUR wedding is going to be. Word.
