Special Event

I don't even have words to say how much we enjoyed Quiana Parler and friends. They were absolutely wonderful. I remember looking back on the dance floor front the front and there wasn't an inch of room left on the dance floor. It was perfect! We have gotten a million compliments on the band. So, to answer you question--they were great!!!! -Tara W.

Wedding Reception

We have nothing but positive comments about Quiana and the band.  Their choice of music for each phase of the reception was flawless.  The music during cocktails, special dances, and dinner was perfectly relaxing and classy.  Then they really nailed it when they kicked it up and the real dancing started.  They were a huge component in how well the reception went.  Granted we paid for the service, but still, it's unusual to receive such an excellent product.  And it was nice working with you, man. - Alex Z.

Bride

Quiana Parler and Friends were AMAZING!! They were professional, organized and highly entertaining.  They were able to read the vibe from the audience and determine what music to play.  People were having so much fun and all we heard about that night and the next day was how great the band was!  We are from NY and we had people emailing us after the wedding for the name of the band.  The band far exceeded our expectations and we couldn't have been more thrilled.  I would recommend them without hesitation.  In fact, the event coordinator where we got married was so impressed that she said she would be referring them to all upcoming brides.  They helped make our wedding truly unforgettable!   Please forward my appreciation to the band.   Thanks for everything,  -Kristen M.

Event Coordinator

Quiana was ABSOLUTELY wonderful!  Her "Friends" were fabulous too!!  They did a great job as always and we look forward to working with them again! The client was very pleased as well as her guests.  Everyone had a great time and the band was the main reason for that!  -Morgan Y.

Special Event

They were fabulous!!  They were super easy to work with.  They showed up when they said they would, played the sets we planned.  I was really impressed with them.  And they totally rocked the whole night.  I would definitely recommend them.  -Cassie M.

Mother of the Bride

Hi Steve - I was traveling and have not had the opportunity to contact you and let you know how wonderful the wedding was so I wanted to respond to your e mail without delay. We can't thank you enough for helping make the wedding spectacular. Quaina Parler and her band are absolutely fantastic, I only wish I had another event to book them again. Our guest are still talking about the entertainment and the fun they had. The music is vital to a good time, keeping people on the dance floor and entertained. We will definitely recommend them, they far surpassed our expectations in entertainment. I want to thank them for being one of the highlights of the day. We are a music family and can relate to superb talent. I can't wait to see the video so I can savor every last word of every song, they were the best.

Thank you again,
Janine S. (June 2nd)

Hi Steve!

We LOVED Quiana, as always, and the wedding guests had an absolute ball. She worked with us on the spot, too - it was a smaller, extravagant but fairly calm wedding and she did an impressive job of catering to their needs. We cannot thank you enough and we will, of course, recommend you to anyone inquiring through KND or otherwise.

Thanks! Look forward to more!

Hi Steve,

I don't think I ever replied to your email. But Quiana and the band hit it out of the park! I swear, it was one of the most fun weddings I have ever been at and that is saying a lot because I have been to ALOT of weddings

Now I know why that band is so popular. They were amazing. The dance floor was full all night with guest ages 10-98. I want to know what the Quiana has for breakfast.! She has SO much energy and they were all a real pleasure to work with. No Diva syndrome. Just such a nice, happy, friendly, professional and talented group. I will definitely be booking them again as soon as I find the opportunity. You will be the first person I call.

GREAT JOB

Thanks
