Parkside Drive performed at our parents' 45th wedding anniversary. They were amazing! Thoroughly professional, they brought a great energy to the party, getting the crowd dancing and singing along. While not performing, the recorded background music was perfectly selected, particularly the selections accompanying our parents' wedding video. Thank you Parkside Drive! We will definitely call you again for the next party!

Parkside Drive is North America's modern wedding entertainment provider. This incredible group has amazed audiences all across Canada and the U.S.A.

Featuring our 5 or 8 piece dance bands, this group is reknown for packed dance floors and unforgettable entertainment. Please check out www.parksidedrive.ca for more info. Here are some of our summer 2011 reviews 

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,

"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!"

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 delivered a fantastic night of dancing music for the delegates at OECTA's Annual General Meeting. Expectations were surpassed! This band knows how to structure a set based on its audience and the response from the crowd was fantastic. Parkside Drive was the highlight of the evening! Thank you!

Parkside Drive was hired to help Ridley College celebrate our 125th Anniversary and I am pleased to report that they hit it right out of the park. To say they exceeded our expectations is an understatement.
From the smooth jazz vocals featured during the pre-dinner music segment to the amazing dance that followed, everyone of our 550 guests we so very complimentary.
Parkside Drive was so good that we engaged them for one hour of overtime and then guests were asking for more!
Our thanks go to Dave, Megan and the the rest of the guys for showing up early to get set up and sound checked and then handling the evening with no issues at all.
Best regards.
