Sheraton Station Square ~ Melissa & AJ – City Heat Band

Melissa and AJ treated Pittsburgh’s City Heat Band to a really fun and memorable wedding at the gorgeous riverfront Sheraton Station Square, overlooking the city.

Milla C Photography captured their special day– the gorgeous couple, their great venue, and great party band– in these amazing Wedding photos :

As if the honor of being chosen for their wedding wasn’t enough, we recently received this letter about City Heat from the newlyweds:

Sheraton Station Square ~ Dreamscape Band Reviewed

Pittsburgh Wedding Band Dreamscape – was reviewed by Birchtree Photography Pittsburgh
Dreamscape Band at Sheraton Station Square

Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer Mary Schwarz,  very graciously said “…these are only my personal opinions and experiences…no one is paying me anything (that’d be sweet, though, if there was such a demand for me reviews!). I just happen to go to a lot of weddings, and I know something good when I see it…or in this case, hear it!

Guests of Stephanie and Greg’s awesome wedding at the Sheraton Station Square were treated to a great performance by Dreamscape Band. If you decide to go with a band for your wedding entertainment, finding a good one can be tricky. Maybe the band’s repertoire is too narrow…or they just can’t seem to get people on the dance floor…or worse, they’re just not good! This was definitely NOT the case with Dreamscape Band. For example:

Not only did they know how to put on a good performance, their members are TALENTED! Seriously, you should have heard them singing and playing.  I was also really impressed with how hard they worked.  Everyone gave it their all. – And all the guests thoroughly enjoyed it! Me, too! So, if you’re looking for a good band for your Pittsburgh wedding, be sure to check out Dreamscape…”

You’re In Love!…now what?

So much thought goes into planning a wedding. Whether you’ve known what you wanted since you dressed up as a bride as a little girl, or are starting fresh, there’s some work to be done… But what kind of “work” is more fun than planning a party based on love?!

Many brides, understandably, fret over all the details— the perfect dress, food, flowers, hair; something old, new, borrowed, blue!—but those who have already walked down the aisle know that it’ll all come together beautifully just in time 🙂

As Ashley and Mark (in the feature above) realized at their Pittsburgh wedding, a great wedding band can really make the reception. A bride may remember the flowers and the dress, but the guests will remember the PARTY! “I honestly think our guests could have danced for another four hours! Nobody wanted to leave at the end of the night, everyone wanted to keep dancing!” What a great testimony to the City Heat Band!

John Parker Bands always strives to do just that—keep the party going! By responding to each unique crowd, and adjusting accordingly, they’re able to include everyone for a guaranteed great time.  Simplify your search for the perfect Pittsburgh wedding bands by starting with John Parker Bands!

Happy planning!

Special thanks to Ashley and Mark; The LeMont Pittsburgh; RIU Palace, Cabo San Lucas; Pittsburgh Post Gazette; and of course, The City Heat Band!


Ask not why – rather, why NOT! :)

We have been to so many weddings it seems like we might know a thing or two about them.

Yet still I was reluctant to blog.  Who would want to read about our weddings or our thoughts about weddings generally?

But rather than continuing to ask “Why would someone want to hear about it…?”    – finally I have decided, “Why not?”  And here I am.   For better or worse.  (wow, that’s bad)

Welcome!
