    All we've heard from our guests since the wedding (mostly from NYC) was how they were completely blown away by his performance, and we couldn't agree more!

    John and band were fantastic, from his & female vocalist's voices and the band & sound, to his upbeat emceeing and ability to keep everyone on the dance floor throughout the night.

the best Wedding

when you want more than just "a band"

there is only ONE John Parker Band - So JP is who you get!

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" vocals IS) 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.

    Kept us organized through the whole process from the beginning when we first met & booked the band - up until our wedding day. He was with us & quick to help whenever we needed advice or suggestions.

    When it came to the band, we were blown away.. our guests all danced endlessly & the band was so fun.

  • “This band is worth every penny. JP MAKES the wedding. (This was actually my 3rd JPB performance. We literally planned our wedding date around his availability.)

    My tip (besides hiring this band): Don't give them too many music recommendations. Give them a general idea of what you like & don't, and let John read the room — he's a PRO at it..

    The band even learned our first dance song just for our wedding, as it wasn't on their list of 1,000 tracks they already knew — we hadn't expected it, and it was a sweet surprise.

    thank you!”
