    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!

    Parkside Drive were great! I would recommend them to anyone. The dance floor was rocking from start to finish! Played all the hits and requests! Can't say anything bad about them! The booking manager was great to deal with and when we got closer to the date the contact was the lead singer of the band Meghan Parnell. She was very pleasant, and helpful. The band is the way to go if you want the dance floor filled!
    Thank You so much Parkside Drive!!

    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!!

    Just Amazing!!

    We hired them for our wedding that took place on Sept 29/2018 and our friends and family loved them!!!

    They are worth every last cent! Remember...people won’t remember your flowers or even your speeches - but they WILL remember your food and your music!!

    I highly recommend them for any event. They were punctual and professional and if you really want to make an impression on your wedding day - hire them. We loved every minute of our wedding but the music was one of fhe favourite moments that we will remember for days to come.

    Thank you Parkside Drive for making our wedding so memorable.

    Cristina & Mario 💕

    Fabulous wedding band!

    We were so happy to have chosen Parkside Drive for our wedding. They were very easy to work with and very attentive to our questions. Dave was able to offer great advice re: song choices for our reception. The band performed for our cocktail hour (Jazz Trio) and reception (Reception Band) and we have received nothing but compliments for both. The band is so fun and so talented! We had multiple guests asking for their contact info both on the night of and in the weeks following... it felt great to know our guests were so well-entertained. Thanks a lot!
