About Obadiah Parker

Obadiah Parker is a wedding musician based in Mesa, Arizona, who has been entertaining crowds since 2005. Obadiah, who goes by Mat Weddle in his day-to-day life, gained recognition when his 2007 cover of Outkast’s Hey Ya went viral. He rose to the number one spot on iTunes’ singer-songwriter chart with this tune and stayed there for the rest of the year. This cover later went on to inspire The Blanks’ lauded performance of the same song on Scrubs. His impassioned vocals and emotive performances, as well as his musical adaptability, earned him fans.

Services Offered

Obadiah Parker’s versatility makes him suited to provide musical accompaniment to all stages of a wedding, from the ceremony to the reception. He can also act as part of a trio or quartet if a soloist isn’t as well suited to your wedding. With these additional musicians comes extra instruments, such as the cello and saxophone. This talented performer is able to learn new songs at the request of the couple and can put his own distinctive spin on them. If your wedding requires atmospheric background music, rather than a performance, Obadiah can provide a simple instrumental accompaniment. He can supply his own audio equipment if needed.

    Wonderful, Talented Musician

    Obadiah was great to work with- he is also super talented and learned one of our favorite songs specifically for our wedding. We had multiple guests comment on how wonderful his music was to accompany our reception!

    Something for everybody

    Anticipating the task of choosing entertainment for my reception dinner caused so much anxiety. My husband and I have completely different taste in music so I knew it would be difficult to agree on what we wanted. Then I stumbled upon Obadiah Parker. Obadiah was completely accommodating and played acoustic versions of several different genres of music. Soundgarden, Adele, Coldplay, Ray Charles, and even The Toadies... Obadiah did it all beautifully. The guests loved the mix of style almost as much as my husband and I did. It was the perfect representation of two people coming together as one.
    I highly recommend booking Obadiah Parker for your event. You will not be disappointed!
