My small party had a wonderful evening with Parker. She is extremely engaging, funny, and most importantly, she has a beautiful voice. I would hire her again in a second.
Parker did a great job at our event. She added a level of intimacy to an otherwise bland event. Would definitely recommend in the future.
Parker McKay either commands interest in a quiet listening room or injects energy into a packed house. Regardless of the environment, you'd be hard pressed to find an individual leaving the venue without remembering her name. Parker is a professional entertainer. We were more than happy with our choice.
