  • "It has been so wonderful having you at Mardi Gras over the last 14 years or so.

    I saw a video of you while looking for a band for my daughter’s wedding, and although I couldn’t get you I knew the Mardi Gras couldn't afford NOT to have you.

    ...and as they say, the rest is history! You are amazing!"

    In particular, your range going from Neil Diamond to Motown to Italian Opera, in Italian and then all the great dance music.

    Thank you for making the wedding an over the top success!"

    Your guests won't stop talking about how amazing your wedding was, and they won't stop dancing until the very last song because John doesn't stop playing!

    As a musician myself, I highly recommend John, especially if you enjoy a good dance beat and great vocals!"

    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 name was brought up every time I asked anyone involved with weddings.

    John, it is impossible for me to thank you enough, nor is it possible for me to describe in words how absolutely great your performance was. other than to say YOU MADE MY DAUGHTERS WEDDING EVERYTHING WE HOPED IT WOULD BE AND MUCH, MUCH MORE !!!!!..."

  • "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!"

  • "...you kept the room rocking, and I am still getting compliments about how great you were.

    My sister-in-law originally was hoping for a DJ because she thinks that they are always better (in her mind). But AFTER the wedding, she was sold on a live band — as long as it is YOU! We could not have been happier!

    Thank you for doing a great job and helping to make the wedding so much fun!.."

Non-Stop High Energy dancing FUN - for ALL!

Non-stop dance music for EVERYBODY - with the best mix of classic and new FUN, yet tasteful, songs from ALL eras. 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, some 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 Energetic Emceeing keeps your wedding ON TRACK!

Classy, 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!
a Energetic Personality Packed Wedding Band with Enthusiasm, Style & Class

A Wedding you can be proud of, because you have a top quality live band with a look, dress, behavior & sound 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.
Great Taste - with nothing 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 Company You Can Count On

With over 50 professionals on staff, 3 physical locations, rehearsal spaces, multiple equipment setups, equipment warehouses & over 1000 live band weddings & events performed in nearly every state & many countries - this isn't some newbie 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 country for over 20 years - For the very best wedding entertainment - that you can COUNT on!
Has performed with & for stars - but WHO CARES?

Yep, John Parker has appeared on TV shows, on the radio, & 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 or for is usually BS & truly means NOTHING as to how fun/good YOUR wedding is going to be. (was that too politically incorrect?) :)

    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!
