Reviews

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

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,

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!

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

“Your voice is beautiful and the band was fantastic. We were so thrilled to have you for our special day.”

-Emmy & Dave/October 2014

 

Quiana Parler and Friends are, hands down, one of my favorite bands here in Charleston!  Her voice is amazing and the band puts on a great show without looking “wedding band cheesy." -Melissa Barton/Wedding Planner

 

Quiana and Friends just played for my son's wedding last Saturday night and I can not say enough how amazed we all were by the entire group.  Quiana is the best and we are so glad to have had her.  They all made our wonderful wedding week-end even more perfect.  Thanks again!

First I want to start by saying my husband and I are music obsessed! Finding a band that could meet our high expectations was our #1 priority! The minute we heard her demo CD, we know we found what we wanted! Quiana’s voice is truly amazing and will blow you away!

From the very first song, my guests were on the floor dancing the night away! The entire band is incredibly talented too- some of the musicians came into the crowd playing their instruments which impressed everyone. Literally, I think almost every guest came up to us at some point during the wedding and complimented Quiana and the band.

On top of everything, Quiana is warm and friendly and is honestly every bride & groom’s dream to work with. Quiana Parler and Friends made our wedding truly unforgettable!
-Andi Pasquin Martinez, Married October 2009, Kiawah Island River Course.

 

Quiana,
I want to thank you for the incredible performance by you and your band at my daughter Rachel's wedding May 8th at the Governor Thomas Bennett House. You guys made the wedding a complete success. I only wish I had another daughter so I could book you for another wedding! My friends and family are still talking about you and the band. Thank you again! Unbelievable is all I can say.
-Barbara Cheatham

 

They were fabulous [and] they were super easy to work with. They showed up when they said they would [and] played the sets we planned. I was really impressed with them. And they totally rocked the whole night. I would definitely recommend them.
-Cassie Mills, Snyder Event Rentals

 

Our company has hired Quiana for the past two years to open our annual meeting by singing the National Anthem. The tone she sets with the power and beauty of just her voice – A Capella – is not easily captured with words. Members of the audience are captivated in mere minutes - some moved to tears – and applaud her with a standing ovation. She has an amazing gift; one that she shares so effortlessly. Aside from her talent and personality, we could not be more pleased with her professionalism and business sense. We highly recommend her and look forward to seeing her go far!
-Kimberly Allen, Benefit Focus

 

Thank you so much for following up with us on this event! 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 Young, Kristin Newman Designs

 

Quiana and friends kept our wedding rocking all night long! We got married two months ago and just went to another wedding with our same group of friends and all they could talk about was how amazing our wedding band was. I went on a recommendation without hearing them play before and I'm so glad I took the chance. After signing Quiana on for our wedding and then telling subsequent vendors I was working with her every single person exploded with excitement and good things to say. Naturally expectations were set very high and boy did they not disappoint. Our wedding was at Hibernian Hall which absolutely screams for a band with that big stage. We had a jazz duo for the cocktail hour downstairs and then the whole band for the rest of the reception in the upstairs ballroom. Everything they did was perfect and perfectly timed and we had the dance floor packed starting before dinner was even served through the last song. One of the best things about Quiana is that once they start their "set" she plays for a solid 2-2.5 hours of straight music. No breaks, therefore no awkward dance buzz kill moments. So many people told us it was the most fun wedding they had ever attended and even the waiters from Cru were commenting on how they had never seen so many people dancing. I'm so thankful we made our dance floor extra large and I'm so happy we chose to work with Quiana to keep it packed all night long!!!
