  • "..it was excellent! We were very pleased with how you worked with us from the beginning to get our first-dance and parent dances just right.

    We were also so impressed with the musicality and professionalism of John and the band. Some requests were made right on the spot and John was able to transition right into these special songs. John also kept the night moving smoothly as a great emcee.

  • "...we could not have been happier with you and your band. Our family and friends are still talking about how much fun the band was.

    I thought you would like what we did when you performed Bohemian Rhapsody haha. Our group is also just a bit silly so it is the perfect storm when you add an open bar to the mix.

    We did have a videographer and he said he got us both playing with the band on Don't Stop Believing!

    and Many thanks for helping us coordinate everything. It was a true success and we had an awesome time!

    You did a fabulous job along with the other talented musicians! It was so much fun. Heard many compliments about your work. Thank you for your professionalism.

    I'm not sure how you do it all the time though. We have been exhausted this past week. Whenever we talk about the wedding, your music comes up and we are so happy that you were a part of our day.

    Thank you again -- Mary Duffy

John Parker – a brief biography
by Max Michaels

John Parker is indeed what you would call a “veteran” of the entertainment business. Born and raised in central Pennsylvania, he was encouraged by his grandparents -his grandfather a concert violinist, his grandmother a trained vocalist/pianist. From age three until he was twelve, John studied classical piano. As a high school student, John studied extensively under the nationally acclaimed Dr. David Berlin, (noted theory, composition, and electronic music expert) performing concurrently with various basement bands on keyboards, and doing, as he puts it, “a little” singing.

In college John studied business, and performed in his first of many professional bands – playing mostly on weekends in bars and nightclubs. During college, John took to the road, playing keyboards and singing with his band “GIMIX”, and later with a band of his own name. This band performed Hotels, Nightclubs, and Casinos throughout the world, and earned a reputation as one of the East Coast’s most talented acts.

John auditioned and appeared on the television program “Star Search” as a solo vocalist, prompting numerous other appearances, as well as various articles about him, as well as notoriety in the highly competitive studio singing business. It was at this time that John was picked up by several Pittsburgh and New York Talent agencies to do photographic modeling, television commercials, and various singing recording session work. Today John can be seen as a representative for local, regional & national concerns, heard on many radio advertisements, as well as seen on television in various capacities.

Given his notariety on the private party scene, love for his kids & surfing – John Parker is currently available for special events and limited concerts only.

 

John has lived in Manhattan & Las Vegas,
he currently calls Pittsburgh, North Palm Beach & Long Beach Island NJ “home”
with family members & homes in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, North Palm Beach Florida & Beach Haven New Jersey.
