    Amazing and versatile band that elevated our wedding reception

    Everything we asked of them was executed perfectly. All of our friends and family raved and continue to rave about them. They are worth every single penny and a must have at any wedding reception.

    Hi Sarah

    Thanks so much to you and your wonderful family for having us at your fall 2020 Micro wedding! The Burroughes was absolutely incredible and everyone had a fantastic time. Nice to see that incredible, beautiful, fun weddings can still take place in the current environment

    All the best!

    Couldn't be happier with the music at our reception

    Parkside Drive was terrific as our wedding band; very professional and easy to work with. They managed all the set up with the venue so we didn't have to stress about any sound set-up, provided the dj service when they weren't playing, and most importantly- sounded amazing. They played a wide range of songs and everything was a dancing crowd pleaser.

    Awesome Wedding Band

    One of the main comments we have been getting from guests at the wedding is how amazing the band was. They did a phenomenal job playing at the ceremony with the songs that we asked them to learn and play acoustic versions of. They were even so generous as to learn a bit of "Who Let The Dogs Out" for when our ring bearer dogs came out during the ceremony! They did a great job during the dancing portion of the night making sure to keep everyone dancing and even made adjustments when my Nonno asked for a slower song to dance to!

    We first heard Parkside Drive 6 years ago at my sister's wedding, and then again last summer at my best friend's wedding. We knew that we had to have them at ours! It was one of the best decisions we made! They were amazing; very organized and professional and did a great job setting up two different locations on the beach. They kept the party going all night and made sure everyone was on the dance floor! They even sent me pictures of the wedding so we can have some to enjoy before we got our professional ones, so thoughtful. Thank you for making our big day so special!!

    Amazing Job at our Wedding - Jeff & Steph

    Parkside Drive did an excellent job at our wedding - they took several song requests, were very responsive in the weeks leading up to the wedding, and were willing to cater to the type of set list we wanted. The band was very effective at playing songs which kept the crowd dancing for the entire night. We have been to several weddings with Parkside Drive and in each case, the guests have raved about how good the band is. Additionally, they did a free private screening ahead of our wedding which was a very nice touch. Pricing is very reasonable. Overall, we could not be happier with the choice of Parkside Drive as our wedding band.
