Wedding guitarist

John is a great musician with professionalism and tons of experience. His prices are very affordable and very low considering his level of guitar expertise and what people below his level, charge. He worked with my wife and I every step of the way and even went out of his way to learn a new song for us. For the ceremony his song choices helped make for the best day of our lives and provided great atmosphere in the pre ceremony. During the cocktail set he thrilled our guests who couldn’t help but buzz about his playing for days after. 100% recommended and I would love to work with him in the future. Thank you John!

Really wonderful!! Exceeded expectations!

John Martinez is an amazing guitarist, singer and performer. He played nonstop for four hours at our home for a party! He is incredibly versatile and has a beautiful voice. He played rock, classical, jazz as well as his own compositions. His guitar playing was really fantastic. All of our guests were so delighted and impressed. I would most definitely have him perform for me again and highly recommend him. He is also a very warm and personable person, and very easy to work with.
