    Ike & Martin are simply THE BEST.

    As a former wedding musician I was particular about the who I hired for my wedding in October. I went to see countless wedding bands all over NorCal but I just wasn't impressed. When I heard Ike & Martin for the first time it was game over. They are by far the best musicians in the Tahoe / Reno area and the best cover duo out there. They were also extremely easy to work with. I only hired them for Ceremony & Cocktail Hour but I regret not having them play longer. My wedding guests are still raving about them. I highly recommend them for any occasion!

    I can't thank Ike and Martin enough for doing such an outstanding job. I knew these guys would be great because my dad highly recommended them, but I didn't realize how essential they would be to my wedding. They played such beautiful classical music during the wedding ceremony and then switched gears and became outstanding performers for the entertainment. I won't lie, I totally procrastinated and emailed them a detailed set list the night before (don't do this to them, I felt horrible!). They totally ran with it and went above and beyond. They were so kind and helpful with the sound when we need to borrow their mikes for the announcement and even helped put a sound mike on our Officiant. I would recommend them to anyone, especially if you are stressing about your wedding. They are completely worth it! Thanks again guys!

    Simply put these guys are top notch and bad ass! I have had the pleasure of watching them perform at countless public shows and private events and they never disappoint. My husband and I also hired them to play the ceremony and reception at our 10 year vow renewal and they knocked it out of the park. We got SO many compliments. As wedding vendor myself, I refer them to my clients every chance I get. Ike and Martin are super professional, prompt and deliver incredible music and endless humor every single time. For an acoustic duo, their music is unmatched by any other band in Tahoe. Ike's string playing ability is amazing and Martin rocks the guitar, bass pedals, harmonica and even the kazoo! Their sing list is HUGE and spans so many genres. Beatles, Cars, Pixies, Stones, Floyd...and their Led Zepplin is incredible. Book these guys for a truly unforgettable event.

  • Rob Morse Photography Wedding Photographers

    I have worked with Ike & Martin on multiple occasions. They are not only the most professional musicians I have seen, but they are more passionate about what they do than anyone I know. They truly love what they do and it shows! Their interaction with the guests of the event is amazing to watch and their musicianship is unparalleled. So, if you want extraordinary entertainment at your event that people will talk about for years, book Ike & Martin! Rob Morse.
