FundraiserReviewed on April 28, 2019From Santa Fe, NM

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 .

John P. Martinez Guitarist Extrordinaire:

Hey There Susan wow what an awesome review. I really enjoyed playing at that beautiful home and your very appreciative and friendly group. I was so glad that they enjoyed the music, that always makes my day. I know you raised a lot of money for those doggies and kitties and am honored to have participated in your special event. Thanks again for the great review, John Martinez

Memorial ServiceReviewed on June 26, 2014From Albuquerque, NM

John could not have been better! He made my event truly perfect. His voice is so smooth and beautiful, he was friendly, communicative, on-time (a little early even), professional and everything was great. I just can't say how much we all appreciated his music but having the total event go so smoothly was just an added bonus. We truly recommend John and I hope we stay in touch with him. I told him we were going to be his new groupies. Thank you John -

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 8, 2016From Albuquerque, NM

John played for our wedding. We spoke to many guatarists and when we met John he made us feel comfortable and went through all of his songs more then once to make sure we had the perfect play list. We wanted him to play God Bless the Broken Road, which he did and was amazing! We could not be happier with John's performance. We highly recommend him to anyone!

John P. Martinez Guitarist Extrordinaire:

Hi Leeandra I hope and Eric you are still as happy today as you were during your awesome wedding. It was a pleasure and a privilege to perform for your special day! Also, this is an amazing review and I love it. Thanks so much and please come to a gig sometime. God Bless you and your family!!!! Sincerely, John Martinez

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on May 31, 2015From Albuquerque, NM

We hired John to play for our wedding in May and he did a wonderful job! He was friendly and easy to work with and learned a new song just for our wedding, that he played and sang. He is an exceptionally talented musician and a wonderful person, and I would highly recommend him for any event.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on August 31, 2013From Bernalillo, NM

We were so happy that John could play at our parents' 50th wedding anniversary. He played and sang a wide variety of songs that everyone enjoyed. Many of the guests even asked how they could contact John for future events. John helped make this special celebration an event to remember. We would definitely ask John to play at future events. He was a pleasure to work with.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 15, 2011From Albuquerque, NM

John did a fine job with instrumentals and songs that he sung. I requested background music and that's what I got. The guests appreciated it so they could talk during the reception. I was already familiar with John as we heard him perform elsewhere.

John P. Martinez Guitarist Extrordinaire:

I am happy for the review that the client gave me but I really I feel the score should have been higher especially the score of 3. This was a 5 hour solo gig and I have never played a solo for this long. It was a marathon and I never repeated a tune. I also had a cold which made it even more difficult and did affect me performance marginally. I still really enjoyed performing, I received lots of compliments and picked up 2 new guitar students. As always, I am appreciative for the work and a special thanks to Tiffany for hiring me!!!!

CelebrationReviewed on April 6, 2019From Albuquerque, NM

John was extremely friendly and sociable. He played a couple of songs that I didn't recognize, but was a great introduction to those songs.

John P. Martinez Guitarist Extrordinaire:

Hey There Pablo Thank you for the great review it was a real pleasure playing for your special event. Your family and friends were very gracious to me and I even made a few tips. Your wife was a doll and thanks for the to-go beans and chili. Sincerely, John Martinez

Private PartyReviewed on December 26, 2018From Placitas, NM

I think the amplification was too much for our space. I mentioned going acoustic but John disagreed with that. Given a larger space, his volume might have been fine. Other than that, his sound was great. There was some confusion about the start time we wanted, maybe related to multiple gigs around Christmas.

Memorial ServiceReviewed on September 27, 2021From Albuquerque, NM

John did an amazing job providing music for my husband's memorial service. He learned two of my husband's favorite songs, and performed them perfectly. John's performance was definitely the highlight of the service, and was an amazing way to honor my husband and his memory. I've very glad I was able to find such a great musician for this important event.

John P. Martinez Guitarist Extrordinaire:

Hey Greta thanks for the awesome review at so nice of you atnd I super appreciate it. Reviews are very important in my field of work. I noticed it was not a straight five up review one of the numbers was four and a half I'm wondering what I could have done better. If you would like to provide me other information please email me at Good luck to you and thanks again

John was great to work with: he reached out before we even made a decision to learn about the event and our vision for it. He offered a wide-ranging catalogue and was very adaptable to our needs. He showed up on time, brought his own sound equipment and played a variety of styles and genres that was interesting without being distracting to the overall event where people were having conversations and conducting business. We'd definitely work with him again next time we're in the ABQ/Santa Fe area.
