We hired John for a private house party fundraiser with a specific theme. Prior to the event John had great communication with us on what he would provide, timing, set up needs and pricing. At the event he was professional. He arrived on time, had a great set- up, and his music was perfect for our crowd and theme. I would enthusiastically recommend him .
Over the years I have performed at the Tennessee Inaugural Ball in 1998 for Bill Clinton's second inauguation plus TV, radio, studio, night clubs, hotel gigs, private parties, weddings & receptions, arts & crafts fairs, art gallery openings, business functions, etc, etc.
My solo guitar and vocal performance includes Contemporary Acoustic Guitar, Core Classical Guitar from Renaissance & Baroque to Spanish Romantic to Contemporary arrangements of Classic Rock tunes( Beatles, Classical Gas, etc.), Jazz & Jazz Fusion plus excellent vocal music including Beatles, Crosby,Stills & Nash, James Taylor to Garth Brookes & Keith Urban plus numerous light romantic tunes, some spanish ballads, some Flamenco Style pieces and some original music. I try very hard to provide a versatile music performance that can be appreciated by most age ranges and musical tastes. From "Bach to Rock" John P Martinez will provide music for all Occasions! GUITAR LESSONS,TOO!
Additional Great Reviews, too:

John was fantastic!
John Martinez was the star of our wedding. As recent arrivals to Santa Fe, we decided to opt for a guitarist rather than a dj and it was one of the best decisions we could have made. John played for several hours and a variety of music selections. He also worked closely with us in picking our first dance song. John's experience with playing weddings was obvious after our first meeting and was extremely helpful in helping us in organizing our music selection (a big plus since my wife and I were really unfamiliar with the process). John played at our wedding for several hours and my family/friends were constantly asking how we were able to find such a great guitarist. Hands down, he was a great wedding addition and we were really happy with his performance.
