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, "

Parkside Drive was, quite simply, awesome, Meghan was amazing, went into the crowd, and made the night full of life. The songs they played were exactly what we and everyone else wanted - upbeat, modern, and tons of fun. Could not rave more about this band - they got everyone dancing during the party and talking about how great they were afterwards.

Good food and good music. That's what makes a great wedding reception. As good as the food was at our wedding, the music cast a shadow on it. Parkside Drive was the talk of the evening. The guests couldn't stop talking about how great the band was from the first song that they played...a difficult song that they learned just 2 weeks before our wedding...and it was fabulous. My wife and I couldn't recommend a better band than Parkside Drive. You can't go wrong with them. Thanks Dave, Meghan and the boys!!

We got married on New Year's Eve 2014 and had an absolute blast. We heard from a number of guests that ours was one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to. Parkside Drive was a big part of that. The dance floor was full the entire night - young people, old people, everybody partying to the great live music. You can trust these guys to know what tunes people will enjoy. Our first dance request was learned in less than a week and they didn't miss a beat. Parkside Drive also went above and beyond by taking care of some audio problems we had before the ceremony, which was not even part of the deal. The band representative was very professional and responsive in the lead up to the wedding. All in all, these guys rock. Highly recommended.

We had our wedding on what turned out to be a crisp fall night, keeping the party together in the sparsely heated barn, and hopping (if only to stay warm) was going to be imperative.
Parkside Drive rocked the party, delivering exactly what they promise, music appealing across the ages and keeping the floor packed.
We got a lot of "where did you find this band?", and one friend is now considering leaving his wife hoping to become a groupy, they are that much fun ;)
They incorporated our requests, sounded amazing, looked stunning, were generally perfect.
Highly recommended,
Nathan & LInda

If you are thinking of hiring a band for your wedding, you want these guys.

Having a live band was one of the few things that we definitely knew we wanted as part of our wedding day. The price difference over a DJ is substantial, and it almost scared us off, but in the end it absolutely was the right call. Weddings are expensive, but don't scrimp on the entertainment, it's one of the things people actually remember.

Dave, Meghan and the whole band put on a phenomenal show. The dance floor was jumping for all three sets, with people from every generation having a blast. Even people who don't like to dance crowded around the dance floor just so they could watch the band. People were coming up to us the whole night saying "this band is amazing!" and friends of ours who were there are now trying to book them for their wedding.

If it fits your budget, get the horns. They obviously add to the sound, but the visual impact is striking as well.

Parkside Drive was a huge hit at our wedding. We had so many favourable comments from guests. It helped make the evening a real success!

Dave was very patient in helping us get organized, and could not have been nicer. He also took the time to record a version of the song we wanted for our first dance, and learned some new music at our request. (Dave -- you should keep the Leonard Cohen. It was great!) But the real difference was in the show. We were a small (55) crowd, but Parkside Drive kept folks on the dance floor the whole night. They had a great sense of what the crowd wanted to hear, and played a terrific variety of music. Meghan, their lead singer, is phenomenal.

Finally, it seems that we were Parkside Drive's first gay wedding -- but we shouldn't be their last. They were amazing!

We had a great experience working with Dave and Parkside Drive this past year. From the moment we first saw them we knew that they would do a fantastic job at the wedding, and they didn't disappoint. They set up well before the event, made it easy for us to connect our own music for dinner, came back to the wedding in time for our first dance where they learned a special song just for us and played it acoustically by the lake, then wowed everyone with a fantastic 3 hour set. Their lights and set up were beautiful and they had us dancing all night.

We (Christine and Matt :) ) hired Parkside Drive for our wedding on the 16th of August this year. Christine is the live music fan, Matt just wanted to hire a DJ. Without a doubt it was a great decision to go with this band as they not only provided great music, but also a great atmosphere/ environment to have fun in. We could not have been happier and encourage anyone looking to have a great time at a party/wedding/any event to hire this band!
