Get To Know the Bands

Princeton NJ’s legendary Nassau Inn • Kate & Andrew

Ok it’s not every day the bride & groom pull up to their wedding venue in a horse drawn carriage.  With a Police escort.  Then enters a 5 star hotel to enjoy an elegant sit down dinner with fun dancing from the first moment until the very end.

A storybook wedding from start to finish,  Kate & Andrew chose the gorgeous Nassau Inn in their historic college town of Princeton NJ.   Fine Art Wedding NJ photographer Shari DeAngelo captured it all:

Long Beach Island NJ Wedding Band & Pittsburgh native John Parker provided the fun.

Doubletree Pittsburgh City Center ~ Colleen and Ralph

“You absolutely made the wedding a HUGE success. All of our friends and family are still raving about the evening. The dance floor was full ALL night and we loved the variety of music. Coll and I can’t thank you enough…”

That’s what groom, Ralph had to say about The John Parker Band at his wedding at the awesome & newly renovated Doubletree in downtown Pittsburgh. Thanks Ralph, we’re flattered, & that’s what a wedding should be about– a fun night spent celebrating your marriage with your closest friends and family!

Whirl Magazine ~ John Parker Bands

“Parker is the picture of style and class as both an entertainer and an emcee”,  a flattering commentary from  Whirl Magazine– Greater Pittsburgh’s Premier Lifestyle Magazine, in last month’s article featuring our very own John Parker.

Within the article, John shares his thoughts on making sure that the bride and groom are kept at the center of the plans, when considering music selection, and the entire wedding planning process. “You want someone who’s going to dig in and get involved in making your wedding great,” Parker says, “Not someone who’s just going to show up and ask you what’s going on when they get there.”

John Parker Bands strives to be a full service operation– attentive to your every wish,  and sharing the knowledge that we’ve gained by performing for over 1,000 events!

Stratigos Banquet Centre ~ Celebrations Spotlight ~ Beth and Jerry

To have a wedding mentioned in the Post Gazette Celebrations Spotlight section is great; but to be named the couple’s favorite vendor? WOW that is a real honor!

“Q: Who was your favorite wedding vendor? Why?

Beth: The highlight was Dreamscape Band (of John Parker Bands). They were very professional, attentive and talented! Our guests danced all night long!”

After being married at the college from which they graduated, Saint Vincent Basilica in Latrobe, Beth and Jerry moved the party to Stratigos Banquet Centre in North Huntingdon where top Pittsburgh band Dreamscape performed for the bride and groom and their guests.
