    Absolutely Amazing Band!

    We love Parkside Drive! Prior to planning my own wedding I had been to 4 weddings where Parkside was the band and we absolutely had to have them play for our wedding as well. From the get-go the responses were so quick and Dave was so helpful I felt very at ease on the day that they would make our wedding amazing. They handled the ceremony music, the cocktail hour and our reception/party. They even played our first dance song (as a last minute request), I was so pleased with how the entire experience went with Parkside. Our entire wedding danced all night and I would highly recommend them for any event. Very professional and they have a great way of getting the group engaged and up and moving! Thank you to Dave & the Parkside group!

    The Best!!!

    Parkside Drive always delivers! They are truly amazing professionals. They have a very well rounded repertoire and were able to learn songs that we had requested the wedding. The Hora was amazing and people went crazy and they had as much energy as the guests. They really got people out on the dance floor; it was never empty when they were playing. Everyone had wonderful things to say and really enjoyed the night! I would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing full band experience for their wedding or event.

    Best band ever

    Parkside drive is the ultimate band and provided us with an amazing wedding experience. We had a large wedding (around 300 people) in Muskoka in August 2018, and booked Parkside Drive about a year in advance. Our experience working with them leading up to the wedding was phenomenal. Dave was very friendly, timely with his responses and helpful. They arranged for us to see them live before we booked with them. We knew there would be a travel cost for having the band come up to Muskoka, but found it very reasonable compared to other quotes we received. On the day of our wedding, Parkside drive provided music for our outdoor ceremony, outdoor cocktail hour, and indoor reception. The variety in their song repertoire was incredible, ranging from instrumental covers of classics for our ceremony (Over the rainbow, Here comes the sun etc.) to country sing-a-long to top 40 to rock. Our first dance song was a mash-up between two songs and the band performed a live version to match it. They had the dance floor going non-stop until the very end. The lighting and AV they provided was flawless. Many of our guests raved about how Parkside Drive was the best band they had ever seen at a wedding, and didn't want to leave the dance floor at the end of the night. When they took breaks (of which there were not many), the DJ took over seamlessly. We really valued being able to pick songs from the repertoire before hand. The band made sure to hit all of our favourites and more - they read the crowd really well. We loved having Parkside Drive play at our wedding and highly recommend!!

    Outstanding wedding band!

    We booked ‘Parkside Drive’ for my son’s wedding at Evergreen Brickworks, in Toronto this past weekend as they came highly recommended from friends who had heard them at other weddings. They were absolutely fantastic! They kept the dance floor packed all night with songs my son and daughter in law picked from their extensive playlists. They have several genres they can play and all sound amazing. Their lead singer Meghan is an amazing singer! They learned and played the first dance song (Won’t let go, James Arthur) and the mother/son dance song (Humble & Kind, Tim McGraw) so beautifully! A show stopper! The ceremony string trio’s songs were also beautifulIy performed as was the instrumental background music during the reception. I highly recommend them for any occasion but especially for weddings. You won’t be disappointed.

    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!
