  • John, everyone praised the reunion - in no small part it was the awesome success of the band we selected!

    You did a super job and your sound was pure with music from our era plus a little sprinkling here and there of all the eras.

    Your pure sound, showmanship and music selection were superb and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Again thank you for a great performance! Best, Alex

  • "The absolute best wedding band!

    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"

    They played amazing music at a sound level perfect for guests to still be able to converse during dinner and then raised it up to get everyone dancing for a great party.

    I can report that most all my guests said this was the best party they had ever attended and the band was a big part."

    Your assistance and suggestions with respect to the order of things was extremely helpful and appreciated..

    By far the easiest vendor for us to work with, John is well mannered, very conscientious & a consummate professional. He was always available for calls, questions and returned emails quickly.

    Oh, and his band is the BEST. His performance kept the dance floor humming all night. Great mix of the classics and brand new top hits all mixed with our requests.

    He also handled the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and played emcee. A++++"

only ONE John Parker Band - So what you see is what you get!

These days many other "bands" are just "band names" where a company or agent MAKES multiple "bands" with the SAME name - You see what appears to be an awesome band online - but then it's a different group of people at their "showcase" - And THEN, totally DIFFERENT people yet can show up to your wedding! (oof!) Because they can have 2-5-10 (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"... Scary? YES! - For YOUR wedding? uh... NO! - With us, John Parker is ALWAYS 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.

The dance floor was always packed, and no one wanted to leave. People were complementing ME, when all I did was call YOU. How can I take credit for that?! Even non-dancers were up there dancing. So many commented on your talent, range of songs, and that the music never stopped for a break.

    Not only did he do an amazing job with the music selection but he also was a great MC (kept the reception moving, upbeat and a ton of fun).

    Prior to the wedding John and I went through the entire reception- he gave advice, recommendations, went over pronunciation of everyone's names and gave me so much peace of mind that I left the conversation knowing that the reception would be amazing and I didn't have to worry about a thing"
