Parkside Drive is North America's modern wedding entertainment provider. This incredible group has amazed audiences all across Canada and the U.S.A.

Featuring our 5 or 8 piece dance bands, this group is reknown for packed dance floors and unforgettable entertainment. Please check out www.parksidedrive.ca for more info. Here are some of our summer 2011 reviews




I can't thank you and the band enough for playing the extra songs when the audience was calling for them. It really ended the night perfectly.



People at my wedding have told me that they will be considering Parkside Drive for their wedding entertainment in the future. I told them that this is a great idea. Please let me if you are ever in need of a reference or if you would like a glowing testimonial for your website, etc - please don't hesitate!



It has been great working with you through all of this, you really made this a stress-free part of the wedding preparation and your performance was killer!



All our best to you and the band,



Matt and Sheena

"Hello Dave and Parkside Drive,



our most sincere gratitude for the celebratory and joyful mood you created at our wedding. We loved the band and judging by the people on the dance floor, and all our friends and family asking "where did you find this amazing band?", our guests loved you guys too.



In advance, we knew we could plan and organize most aspects of our wedding; such as location, food, who is attending, etc. So we knew we would have a great day. One area of concern for us in the planning stage was entertainment. This part of our day could potentially continue or stop the celebratory mood. We knew we wanted a live band as it brings a certain energy to the party, something that a recording or DJ cannot do. As soon as you played the first few notes, we knew it was going to be a great night. Your professionalism is evident before, during, and after the gig. Your passion and love of music comes alive when you are performing. You guys truly have something special, and we are so grateful and pleased to have had you play on our wedding day.



You surpassed our expectations of what a wedding band can be. You guys sound and look great on your online videos, but they don't compare to seeing and hearing you live. We would recommend you to anyone we know looking for a band. As a matter of fact, two of the guests at our wedding are interested in booking you for their wedding.



A special thank you from Steve for letting me come up and play 'Superstition' with you guys. I didn't think the day/night could get any better, but that topped it off! If you ever need a sub keys player for a gig, the GTA is not too far a drive for me! :)



Once again, we just wanted to say a huge 'THANK YOU' for making our wedding reception complete!"

"Dave!



We want to thank YOU so much. You guys were fantastic. Everyone was raving about you. Dan and I couldn't have been happier. Working with you has been such a pleasure. You are so professional and are so good at what you do.



We hope you made it back to Toronto safely. If there's anything we can do for you in the future let us know. We'd be happy to write a reccomendation.



Thank you thank you, "

Every guest has commented on the amazing band and the atmosphere they created at the venue. The dance floor was full right until the end of the night! I can't say enough good things about all members of the band and I fully recommend their services. Thank you to Parkside Drive for helping to make our day perfect! And thank you to Dave for making everything so simple. Your professionalism is second to none.

Parkside Drive performed at our wedding recently in the Distillery District in Toronto. Words cannot describe how amazing they were!!! Every single guest has been raving to us about our band! Meg's voice is incredible, she can sing any genre perfectly. Meg and Dave were so helpful, supportive and flexible throughout the entire wedding process. I'm a very picky person and I had a specific vision for how I wanted my wedding to look and feel, Parkside Drive helped me accomplish this. Every single request and email was responded to and very quickly. I was also nervous about the logistics of my day since it was the Annual Christmas Market in Distillery district but the band was on time and professional. I can't stress enough how picky I am and Parkside Drive exceeded our expectations! All our friends were on the dance floor until 2 am which is the exact party we wanted. Thank you so much!!!

As a seasoned Event Manager at a luxury hotel in Toronto, I had high expectations going in for my own wedding. After seeing Parkside Drive at various weddings and events at the hotel I knew that this would be our band. Dave was a professional from beginning to end and we had the opportunity to preview the band upclose and personal at a venue they were playing one night and signed them the next day. Every request was met, every song we wanted was played (including custom songs for our ceremony and special dances... even an impromptu flash mob. Parkside Drive was so accommodating and flexible to our needs, it made the whole process incredibly fun. The Hora was the talk of the night.... and Parkside delivered on the one thing they always promise.... keeping that dance floor packed all night. What a party!!! We have been asked over and over by our guests just who was our band that night and how outstanding the vocals were.
Thank you Dave and Parkside Drive for the best party of our lives! We will remember and treasure it forever!!

Parkside Drive was truly the best band to work with and have at a Wedding. They played all night long and had all of our guests up and dancing through every age group.

They were seamless in their transition between playing live and having dj'd music. They played all of the latest hits along with the classics. The night was perfect, from cocktail music through until the end of the night. Our guests were raving about the band!

We would HIGHLY recommend Parkside Drive to ANYONE having a wedding or other event where you want live music.

We got married on August 29, 2015 after a short 8 month engagement. Our dream was to have a band perform at our wedding vs. a typical DJ. We researched a few bands, but were blown away by Dave's professionalism and promptness. We ended up getting the extra horn section which made the whole night that much better. We can honestly say that the dancing didn't stop until the last song. So many of our guests raved at how good the band was. The husband actually pulled off a flash mob which was performed live by the band to perfection. We would have no hesitation in recommending this band to anyone

There isn't much for me to say, expect WOW! Parkside Drive rocked the place, I could not be happier with the bands performance. Throughout the night I was asked multiple times where I found the band and their contact information. Needless to say, our guest had a great time too!

I recommend anyone to check out this Band for a wedding or other event. They're amazing!!!

We had an unbelievable experience with Parkside Drive. They are top-quality entertainers, and made our wedding reception into an event that I'm sure people will be talking about for years to come. Parkside has a keen eye for how to keep a crowd dancing, and how to make a party rock!

In particular, I was very impressed with how Parkside worked with use to incorporate some of the specific songs we had requested for the wedding, including some in different languages! Top marks on their ability to work with your requirements.

Thank you to Dave and the team for an unbelievable performance!

Parkside Drive did an incredible job at our wedding. They not only were extremely professional, but they were also very personable. They accommodated an acoustic version of "Magic" by Coldplay, learned our first dance song and played it beautifully and played so many crowd pleasers along the way. We absolutely loved having them. Many of our guests commented that they loved our band. They even played a few encore songs and let some of our guests join them on stage to play guitar and sing along. They. Were. Fantastic! I would recommend them to anyone for any event.
