Absolutely Enjoyable. Super Experience
I had seen John at a local spot, took his card and later called him up to perform at small and very special family reunion. Man did he land it- spot on for our gathering. His music selection was as if tailored-made for our group. Recommend highly. Man am I glad it was John. A DJ for me is way too passe when I now know, nothing beats live. Not to mention all the love from the family showered on me for making this decision. Thanks, Mr. Martinez. Hope to see you again sometime.Sent on 09/09/2019

Rainy day didn't keep the beautiful music from playing
John played for our daughter's wedding. He is an amazing guitarist. Our outdoor wedding ended up with last minute rearrangements to indoor, very tight space. John had learned new music for the processional that ended up being the shortest processional ever and he had to sit in a tiny corner. None the less, the ceremony guitar music was beautiful and the cocktail hour music was great and fun. If you like acoustical guitar, he is awesome! We really appreciate that he adapted to the fact that the rains dictated our last minute venue.Sent on 08/29/2019

I will use them every time again and again!
John and Susan, as Chili Pi, are simply awesome. Excellent musicians and vocals. They were able to hit our diverse audience with both originals and covers that pleased everyone at the event I organized. I will use them every time I organize an event in the area!Sent on 10/18/2018
