  • "John, What a great evening, thanks to your entertainment!

    I knew you had things under control. Everyone loved the music, from the cocktail hour to the grand finale, it was just perfect.

    People didn't want to leave. I'm sure our friends will be asking for a referral when their time comes for an event, and we will gladly refer you.

    We look forward to hearing your talent again soon Thank you!"

  • "In planning weddings, couples and their families spend so much time obsessing about little details.

    When it’s all over though, people don’t remember what the centerpieces looked like or what the mother-of-bride wore. They remember if they had a great time.

    And everyone at our wedding had a FANTASTIC time, thanks to the John Parker Band!!!"

  • "Thank you for making our vision for our wedding a reality.

    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.

    Your song selections were excellent, and the music (and fun) never stopped.

    You really made the night perfect and were so professional. Having you provide the entertainment for the wedding was one of the best decisions that we made!"

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

These days most other "band names" MAKE more bands with the same name - so they can have 2,3,4,12 (whatever) groups with the same band names with random musicians.. So you really have NO idea exactly what you're going to get... Isn't that scary? Yep. For YOUR wedding? Nope.

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, 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 by someone you can COUNT on!

NOT a band name no one 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 Tasty - 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!

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.

    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.

  • "...I had so many people approach me that night, referring to the band, saying "best....decision....of your life".

    I might argue that my new husband was the BEST decision, but you and your band were definitely a close second.

    You far exceeded our expectations and the chatter continues about how amazing you were.

    Things like "he is a blessing" says it all..."
