An Absolutely Elite Performance

Parker was the epitome of professionalism, paired with a vibrant energy that brought an unparalleled level of fun and joy to our wedding celebration. His ability to read the room and adapt the music to the vibe was impeccable. We were especially impressed by how seamlessly he transitioned between songs and genres, ensuring there was never a dull moment. And his interactions with the guests, peppered with humor and warmth, made everyone feel included and important. But what truly sets Parker apart is his genuine passion for what he does. It's evident in the effort he put into understanding our preferences and in the enthusiasm he brought to the dance floor. Our wedding was an unforgettable occasion, and we owe a huge part of that to Parker. We wholeheartedly recommend him to any couple looking for a DJ who goes above and beyond to make their day special.

Amazing value and shocking good professionalism

DJ Parker Marshall, was certainly one of the highlights of Lydia and I’s special day. From the moment he began the evening with quiet and soft jazz music for the cocktail and hors d’oeuvres hour, he was able to match the energy of the night with ease. He even played some authentic Hispanic music to make sure my family heard something familiar and enjoyable. I would absolutely recommend DJ Parker with so much faith for your special day. He even danced to some ABBA towards the end of the night and tastefully added a nice touch of performance “with the show”. Lydia and I couldn’t haven’t been happier with where he took us that night and are pleased to write this review open heartedly. Book him! Don’t think about it anymore, planning a wedding is tough, so move forward and make your event a success with Parker.
- Lydia and Niel
