WeddingReviewed on October 17, 2020From Barrington, IL

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!

FuneralReviewed on October 18, 2019From Wilmette, IL

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 Metzger:

Thank you so much for hiring us! I’m glad we were able to find a suitable substitute for myself that worked perfectly for your event! We were also glad to accommodate with in a day's notice! Humberto is a wonderful part of our team of premier musicians. I hope we can do it again in the future. All the best! Martin

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on June 15, 2019From Chicago, IL

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.

Martin Metzger:

Thank you so much for your kind words Shelby! Diego said that the ceremony was very beautiful. We were very happy to be a part of it! Hope to see you again soon!
