“The John Paris Band was unbelievable! I had never seen them perform and hired them purely on friends’ recommendations for my wedding and they were worth every penny! They were so easy to work with and put on such a great show. At the end of the night you could not get the guests off the dance floor because they were having such a great time! I would highly recommend them for any event… especially a wedding. I had many guests tell me they were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding!”
--Jennifer Rodriguez, Bride

"I hire The John Paris Band for every high-profile event I coordinate.  They are the best!” 
--David F. Rosen, CEO,The Competence Group/representing Hillary Rodham Clinton, Governor Pat Quinn

I always enjoy working with John and his team. John is very responsive and is able to make suggestions based on my needs. His crew of musicians are always accommodating and professional. I love his music and trust him so completely that he played at my own wedding!!” 
--Emily Hopkins, Event Planner – Eved Services

“WOW, The John Paris Band was amazing. They completely exceeded our expectations for the wedding ceremony music, dinner music, and reception music. From young to old and everyone in between, all ages truly enjoyed themselves all night long. We have had nothing but enthusiastic compliments from so many of our guests. We had over 300 guests and their music touched every age group. I would highly recommend them over and over.”
