  • "John Parker Band is the absolute BEST!!

    From the first song to the last song, the dance floor was packed! So many guests kept coming up to us commenting on how great the band was!

    John was so easy to work with and helped ensure there was a good flow to the reception and maximized dancing time. We could not recommend John Parker and his band enough!

    Just book them...you won't be disappointed!"

  • All of you run such a different business!

    Dealing with you is like going back 30 years when the customer is always right.

    You not only make things easy, but unlike the vast majority, are actually a joy to deal with!!!

    Thanks for being that way!"

  • "Thank YOU John!  You all were wonderful.

      Rodney and I were adamant about having good food and good music, but we went back and forth about the amount of money we were going to be spending…  we paid for almost everything ourselves, and have been saving every penny possible so that our wedding was our dream. 

    ...we both agreed that it was money well spent.  Everyone raved about you, and I believe you will be contacted by others that were at our wedding for weddings coming up in their families.

        Thank you again…" Hillary Morgan

    You're a true professional, and your timing and the range of music ensured everyone of all ages had a blast.

    Plus,  your team ensured all the planning ran smoothly without the "flake factor" that occurs when working with musicians. Thanks!"

    I cannot tell you how many people asked where we found you guys… because everyone wants to have you play at their wedding too!

    I truly cannot thank you and your band enough for making our day absolutely amazing. I have never been to a wedding where when the lights turn on at the end of the night the dance floor was full, but you did tell me that would be the case and you did not disappoint.

    Thank You, thank you, thank you, Bri "

    More than anything, Michael and I wanted the reception to be a party, with lots of dancing. And that’s exactly the mood you and the band provided.

only ONE John Parker Band - So you ALWAYS get John Parker

These days most other "band names" are just "mix & match" musicians where the company or agent just MAKES more bands with the same name - So they can have 2 or 5 or 10 (whatever) same-named groups on any night... With that, you really have NO idea exactly what you're going to get... Scary? YES! - For YOUR wedding? uh... NO! - With us, John Parker is 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 to Keep you 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.

    We had heard him perform at another wedding we went to and we both noted to ourself just how much John could bring the crowd to life and how engaging he was. It was simply the best wedding experience we have ever had and we wanted to have that same.
