About
After playing the 'Jersey' Club circuit as a Lead Vocalist/Bass player for years during the 80's with a few popular bands, most note worthy 'The Nines'[the Nines were the opening act for 'Joan Jett & the Blackhearts at the 'Hole in the Wall', if anyone remembers that Club] & 'The Action', I moved to California to pursue a career in musical theatre.
Both California & it's Musical Theatre scene were very good to me. I was fortunate enough to work with Broadway legend, John Raitte [Bonnie's Dad]& I've performed many leading roles such as Billy Flynn in 'Chicago' and John Adams in '1776'.
After almost two decades in California, it was time to come home. Now that I'm back on the East coast, I'm happier than I've ever been & "Martin's Karaoke" is an extension of that.

I'm a Director of Audio/Visual services at a major hotel. This has given me the knowledge & ability to use my equipment efficiently in any situation.

My sound system components include several quality brand names: JBL Speakers, Crown Power Amplifier, Yamaha vocal monitor, Shure microphones [both wired & wireless], Sony, Behringer & multiple CAVS Karaoke players.
Without compromising quality, I can scale my system down for smaller events or bring the whole nine yards for the larger venues.

With all the above to offer your group, please notice how reasonable my rates are for a 4 hour show. Please keep in mind that I will need ample time to set up & remove my equipment.

I would definitely hire Mr. Kennedy again and will recommend him to all of my friends. He was very accomodating to our needs and extremely professional is his demeanor. The music was great and he offered lots of karaoke songs to choose from. I give Martin a 5-star rating!

I used Martin's Karaoke for a high school graduation party. Martin was extremely professional, courteous, & accomodating. Many requests were made of him and he was able to accomodate all. I would use him again and recommend him to anyone needing a DJ. He was great!!!

I was looking for a karaoke/DJ for my husband's surprise 40th birthday party. I wanted someone local and I found Martin at gigmasters.com. He is a wonderful karaoke/dj. He is very professional.He answered all my questions in a timely manner.He took the time to make sure I would have all the music I wanted at the event. My venue had to be changed because of the flood in Bound Brook and I decided to have the party at my home and he was very accommodating.He let the party dictate the music not the DJ, which I found rather refreshing. He is very punctual and reliable. You felt like he was part of the family. I would definately use him again and I would recommend him to anybody!!! Sharon Nerger

MARTIN DECIDED 2 HOURS BEFORE MY EVENT TO CANCELL. HE KNEW ALL THE DETAILS OF THE PARTY. I THREW MY WIFE A 30TH SURPRISE PARTY ON THE ATLANTIC HIGHLAND PRINCESS BOAT AND HE STATED THAT HE COULD TAKE THE GIG AND THAT HE HAS DONE GIGS ON BOATS BEFORE. HE CALLED MY CELL PHONE TWO HOURS BEFORE AND SAID THAT HE COULD NOT TRANSPORT THE DJ EQUIPMENT DOWN THE DOCK TO THE BOAT BECAUSE HE HAS A BAD KNEE. THE CAPTAIN OF THE BOAT AND HIS CREW AND MYSELF OFFERED TO DO FOR HIM BUT HE REFUSED TO EXCEPT OUR HELP. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. I WOULD NEVER RECOMEND HIM TO ANYONE, NOT EVEN MY WORST ENEMY. I WISH THE ABOVE SCALE HAD NEGATIVE NUMBERS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT HE DESERVES.

Martin's Karaoke’s Response:

I was very sorry to have to cancel this event with Mr. V. Unfortunately, when I agreed to do this gig, I was not aware of all the details. I was under the impression that the boat was permanently moored & directly accessible from a parking lot. It wasn’t until a day before the event that I was informed that I would not be able to set my equipment until 90 minutes before “departure”. I should have known at that moment I heard the word departure, that there would be a problem. When I got to the job site over two hour before my scheduled start time, I found a downward ramp, a long rickety wooden pier with no safety rails on either side & a steep gangplank to th
