Martin and his mate, Hector, were great! So easy to plan with them and set everything up. We had them at a wedding cocktail hour and everybody loved the music and mood. The best part was how independent they are at setting up and doing their job. On that busy day for me, it was nice not having to deal with small details like that. Walking into the hall and hearing the beautiful music was one of the highlights to the day. Thanks!

Humberto played beautifully and was very respectful. Humberto’s selection of ballads was perfect for the occasion. Would highly recommend his service as well as the GigMaster site.

Martin was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was professional and kind. HIs colleague Diego ended up performing for our wedding ceremony, and did a wonderful job. It made our wedding day so special. I highly recommend working with either of them.
