In helping the bride and groom plan for, design, and coordinate their wedding, we got the opportunity to work alongside the John Paris Band for the reception and majority of the evening. We communicated mainly with John and Shane, and both gentleman are fantastic! They are both very respectful, appreciative and professional and made the evening run smoothly. We knew we could rely on John, Shane, and the band to relay any messages we needed to get to the guests in an appropriate manner. The band itself is absolutely amazing! Immediately after the band began to play their first tune, we knew it was going to be an amazing night and that the guests would have such a blast dancing and watching. Such talented and entertaining performers. We hope to see them make their way over to our stomping grounds in Madison, WI. We highly recommend the John Paris Band for any and all of your music and entertainment needs!

John Paris Band was outstanding!!! We had a wedding with about 170 guests on the 4th of July. They played motown and other recent hits. The band definitely knows how to get the people up and dancing. The biggest hit of the night was when they did "Oh What a Night" and split the crowd for a little singing back and forth action. We received many compliments on them. We have been talking about John Paris Band ever since and would not hesitate to recommend to a friend in need of a band for a wedding or party. John Paris himself was so easy to work with. They had a huge variety of recorded music to play during cocktail hour and dinner. I had the MC take requests from the guests (with a little guided list) and it was very fun and interactive. The MC had a HUGE selection of recorded music. They are also a steal! I couldn't believe how affordable they are with such great talent. Thank you again John Paris. xoxo Kenna and Mike Brody

The John Paris Band had all of our wedding guests dancing all night! They knew exactly what songs to play to keep the crowd happy. To this day people are still talking about the band and what a fun party it was. John was so easy to work with and made me so comfortable during the entire planning process. He was quick to respond to emails and was happy to correspond with the venue since we did not have a wedding planner / coordinator. I would hire the John Paris Band in a second in the future.

The John Paris Band made our wedding reception tons of fun! All of our family and guests absolutely loved them! They got everybody, of all ages, up and dancing! They were also extremely professional and accommodating. They worked with me before the wedding to make sure they knew exactly what I wanted for the ceremony music, dinner music, and dance music, and that I was happy with everything. Everything went perfectly according to plan! I cannot say enough good things about them and would highly recommend them to anyone who is interested in booking a great dance band!

Blown away. We all know how important it is to have the right music for the "Big Day" and it can be a little difficult to choose or even know how to choose. I just want to say that The John Paris Band delivered everything I wanted, needed, wished and hoped for, etc. John helped me bring my vision to reality, and was super helpful and easy to work with. And the best part of all: the band was absolutely amazing. Everyone had such an incredible time dancing all night! Trust me, The John Paris Band is the best, hands down!

We booked The John Paris Band for our December wedding and they really were incredible. We heard them at a friend's wedding and knew they absolutely would have to be our wedding band. They were the first vendor we booked! John is super professional and great to work with, and his whole band was incredibly talented great to dance to from start to finish. They provided the exact atmosphere we wanted for our wedding and all of our guests commented on how wonderful they were. I would highly recommend this band – they truly set an amazing tone for our wedding celebration!

If you're planning a wedding, you want the John Paris Ensembles on your team! As soon as we got engaged, we booked the band. John is incredibly helpful and professional, and made our experience incredibly fun and unique. John helped to coordinate our ceremony music and reception music. We received so many compliments on our ceremony music, and our guests had a blast at the reception! He really went above and beyond to accommodate our song requests. It was a beautiful day and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

We couldn't have been more pleased with JPB's performance. Their years of experience together is a huge advantage, and it shows! Not only do they never skip a beat, but they are extremely talented in reading and playing to the crowd. It's a real art to transition songs naturally and reflect the evolving mood of the guests, and they really nailed it! John was beyond professional and accommodating. Worth every penny!
