    JP Band and City Heat Bands are Fabulous!

    The JP Band and City Heat Bands performed at the weddings of our two daughters who were married this year, one in Pittsburgh and the other in Cleveland. The John Parker Band group is easy to work with, professional and absolutely entertaining. The wedding guests at both weddings were wowed by both John Parker Bands. We could not imagine using any other band group for a wedding or other significant event!! John Parker's bands are fabulous!

    Simply the Best!!!!

    The John Parker Band played at our wedding. He and his band did an OUTSTANDING job!!!! People are still raving about how much fun they had dancing at our wedding.

    Not only did the John Parker Band provide an incredibly fun and celebratory atmosphere at our wedding, but he also made sure everything flowed perfectly to ensure no gaps in our big day. From the ceremony music to the very last dance, John ensured that everything was just perfect and organized, which delighted this very Type A bride :)

    John was also super helpful throughout the whole year while we were planning our wedding. He was readily available to talk about any of our questions and concerns.

    My husband and I are THRILLED with our wedding day and all of the services John provided. He and the whole band are incredibly talented people! We had a blast!! We're already trying to find an excuse to have another party or celebration to have The John Parker Band play again.

    If you want him to play at your event, BOOK. HIM. NOW. He's awesome, and you don't want to miss any of his available dates!!!!

    Wonderful band that made for a wonderful night!

    Dreamscape did a phenomenal job and made our daughter's wedding truly special. They played during dinner songs that warmed our hearts and people of every age enjoyed. They entertained everyone of all ages and everyone had a wonderful time and could not stop complimenting the band. They were on time, understood the crowd and were truly a class act. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how wonderful the band was and how much fun they had at the wedding. We highly recommend Tammy, Dreamscape and John Parker Bands, you won't be disappointed!

    Unbelievable

    My husband and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dreamscape. They helped to make our special night the most incredible evening. To say they were phenomenal is an understatement! Throughout the night, EVERYONE had such great things to say about Dreamscape. Our guests have even continued to talk about their spectacular performance to this day. There wasn't one minute throughout the entire night that we weren't all on the dance floor, smiling, enjoying the evening, to simply say- having the time of their lives! The way that they interacted with all of us throughout the night kept the night alive and something that we will all never forget. I, especially, loved when Tammi let me sing my favorite songs with her! I truly will never forget these many memories.

    We, and our guests, were in complete awe when Dreamscape performed during dinner. They sang Opera, and even performed in Italian, which meant so much to so many of us.

    When Jonathan and I think about Dreamscape and the evening we are speechless and brings tears to our eyes. We cannot thank Dreamscape enough for making our special night unforgettable.

    AMAZING BAND! Thank you John Parker!!

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! If you are searching for band, you do not need to look any further and should 100% book John Parker Band. He made our reception so much fun and truly was the highlight of our evening. We have received so many compliments from family and friends following our wedding saying how amazing the band was and that they have never been to such a fun wedding before ours. John Parker is extremely personable, professional, and responsive. It was so easy to get in touch with him via email and phone. I truly cannot recommend John Parker Band enough!! They are absolutely fantastic and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Our wedding reception was perfect because of them!!

    Exceptional Service!

    John Parker and his band (Dreamscape) provided both excellent service and communication from the time we hired them throughout the wedding. John went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect and everything we wanted. From the moment the band arrived on our wedding day they were very attentive to our needs and asks. They not only started the party and got everyone on the dance floor, but kept the party going all night and were by far the best decision out of all of our vendors. Even a month after our wedding we are still getting compliments on the band on how much everyone liked them. We cannot say thank you enough for making our day so special!

    JPB made our wedding the event of the year!

    If we could give John Parker and his band more than 5 stars, we would in a heartbeat! From the beginning of our wedding to the very end, they were absolutely wonderful and took every ounce of stress off of our shoulders so that we could just sit back and ENJOY. They played our ceremony music, our entire reception, and kept the ball rolling and all of our guests happy in between. We cannot thank you guys enough for all that you did for us! Our guests are still talking about how much they loved you guys and how much fun they had. THANK YOU! You guys rock!

    Awesome!!!!

    We used John Parker Band for our wedding in Pittsburgh in June 2019 and they were absolutely amazing!! John made us feel at ease by talking through the timeline leading up to the wedding and did a perfect job as MC — fun, professional, and classy. He gave us some very helpful recommendations along the way while listening to what we wanted. They played the music we liked, read the crowd well to keep everyone dancing, and had everyone having fun the whole night! We continue to get compliments from our guests. We couldn’t be happier that we booked John Parker Band...we HIGHLY recommend booking them!

    Dreamscape was Great

    We recently had Dreamscape perform at my daughter’s wedding reception at Phipps. They were fantastic! They performed during dinner with an appropriate selection of music. Once the dancing started it did not stop. The selection was excellent. All the performances were crisp and well done. The music just kept coming all night. We wish that they could have kept playing all night.
    Their rendition of “Lullabye” from Billy Joel for the Father-Daughter dance touched my heart.
    I would highly recommend them!
    p.s. their version of “Shut and Dance with Me” is better than the original.

    We had such a great experience with Dreamscape, one of the John Parker Bands. John Parker was very responsive to our questions from the beginning and helped us decide exactly which band would be best for our event. Our guests absolutely loved the energy and had so much fun throughout the night - we even extended the band an extra half hour to keep the dancing going! The band sounded incredible - there were points during the dinner when they were singing so well it sounded like a recording. During the dancing, they brought such a fun energy and kept the event moving at a great pace. They didn't completely follow our requested list, but hit the key songs and made selections that kept our guests filling the dance floor.

    We are so thankful we chose John Parker Band for our wedding reception entertainment and John as an announcer. The band truly WOWED the crowd. We received an unreal amount of compliments. My sister in laws both said that my father in law did not dance at either of their weddings, but the music John and band preformed had him moving his feet on the dance floor! John has a sense of knowing exactly the songs the guests are vibing to and chooses the best music to keep up the momentum. They were kind, professional, excellent with communication and sounded amazing. He really made everyone feel at ease and have the best time dancing. We couldn't believe the quality of the music. They didn't even take a break! Thank you John Parker and band for sharing your evening with us and making it extra special.

    An open letter to JPB: we hope all our requests and conversations (that you so conscientiously answered) weren’t too much, and all our day-of craziness was as fun for you as for us, because all single party guests are ready to book you for their own weddings. You’re simply the best! Thanks for being a genuine and easy-going MC, for bringing such a talented, talented band to bring the wedding reception to life, and for providing top-notch service all the way through. You brought all the fun and allayed any stress. We’re groupies for life!

I LOVED the mash-up we did transitioning seamlessly from DJ version to us performing your first dance song.. The concept & the energy of that was SO amazing - I wish we could do that all the time - Next time we see you we'll have to do it again.. Hope to see you soon & until then, lots of love to you both! john

    Without question, Dreamscape "John Parker Bands" elevated our daughters' reception to the highest level. Wedding guests were out on the floor dancing the entire evening. The next morning we learned that many of the other hotel guests staying at Bedford Springs thought about crashing our reception! Thank you for a memorable evening!

    We are an older couple who wanted a small band to play music from the 40's and 50's along with some jazz and blues for our small outdoor wedding John Parker found us the perfect band in The Catro Band. The guys were terrific and played all our requests. We wanted to dance under the moonlight and the band was the perfect compliment.

    We could not have been happier with the JPBand! They seriously created such a fun and entertaining atmosphere for the wedding.

    City Heat was amazing. No one left the dance floor all night. They were easy to deal with and quite professional. The violinist and pianist that we had for the ceremony were outstandin. John Parker and Kelly were extremely responsive and went beyond the call of duty.

    We had an AWESOME wedding band -- Matt Ferrante and the Modern Times!!! John Parker bands DOES NOT disappoint. They check in repeatedly before your big day. I am a musician and provided the band with hundreds of songs I wanted to hear and they played dozens of my favorite songs, and they are so talented. All of our guests complemented the band as well as the song selections. They were great at getting our guests to get up and dance and we had a blast! In my opinion, the price was very reasonable for 5 very talented musicians!

    One of the best decisions we as parents of the bride made was to have a band at the wedding and that band was Dreamscape. We had guests tell us that our wedding was the best wedding they had ever attended and that was in part due to Dreamscape. From the piano music during the cocktail hour, to the dinner music and finally the actual dancing - one was better than the other and they all were fantastic.
