“Martin is GREAT! He traveled to our wedding rehearsal the day before the wedding, as well as the wedding day, and was very receptive of ideas and changes. He was VERY professional and sweet. All of our friends and family members enjoyed visiting with Martin at the rehearsal. He is very talented and learned all of our selections in only a couple of months. We were very lucky to find him. We will DEFINITELY be working with him again for any further events that we might have.” - Kali N. from Freeport TX

“Martin was fabulous. He played at my moms 60th birthday party and all the men were singing through dinner with him. He made them relive their youth and they loved it and love martin. He made great song choices and I will use him again for sure. Thanks Martin!” - Reena D. from Houston TX
*BIRTHDAY PARTY (Kids):
“Martin did a fabulous job with our party. His task was not simple--play ukulele and lead a group 25+ noise 5 year olds! He was great with the kids. He taught my 5 year old how to accompany him right on the spot and led the group through several fun sing-alongs. He played musical chairs with them,and later serenaded us all. He really added a great touch to the party. He was very open to our requests and suggestions. He's very friendly with everyone and struck up conversations with several adults as well. He made everything fun and added a whole new element to our party!” - Brian B from Houston TX

“Martin was awesome, he presented me with ideas to try and make my event better. Martin worked hard to make my event exactly what I had in mind. Would definitely recommend!!” - Daniel C. from Houston TX
“Martin was a delight to have as a performer at our party. He didn't miss a beat when hit with various song requests and was able to perform 99% of the requests. His voice was exceptional and his guitar skills were solid. Martin was funny and he did a great job of engaging the audience during his performance. I would definitely recommend Martin to anyone looking for a seasoned professional to perform at their event.” - John J. from Spring TX
*CORPORATE FUNCTION EVENT:
“We needed a musician who, besides playing guitar and singing, would also be willing to play a suspect in our murder mystery. Martin was very accommodating and enthusiastic about playing a role in the show. He came fully prepared and had a set list far beyond what he needed. He is talented, versatile and has a positive, "can do" attitude. I highly recommend him.” - Kevin P. from Houston TX
“Martin was very personal and his music was genuine. We definitely enjoyed Martin and if we have other events he will be the first person we look up. Thanks Martin & GigMasters!” - Frank L. from Houston TX
“DJ's & Drum Machines” are perfect for dancing but, Martin doesn't rely on “effects” to impress and there's nothing more intimate than a LIVE PERFORMANCE from an acoustic-electric guitarist and vocalist who's raw & versatile synergy has captivated audiences of all ages for many occasions!!
