Christmas PartyReviewed on December 11, 2021From Flossmoor, IL

Chris Martin arrived early and was ready to play. We did a singalong of Christmas carols and Chris didn’t miss a beat. Guest made special request and he played them effortlessly. He is pleasant and very talented and I would hire him again and again.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on March 2, 2019From Chicago, IL

Chris was amazing. Very professional, played great music, and really added to the vibe. He was very helpful in selecting the music for the ceremony (this was our first time doing this), and during cocktail hour played music that flowed seamlessly. Several guests commented on how great the music was. Would definitely book him again!

Chris Martin:

thanks Austin the reviews help

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 8, 2018From Chicago, IL

Chris is wonderful - friendly, low maintenance and extraordinarily talented. He played Christmas tunes for our party and mixed in Disney songs for the little one and lullabies when a little one was crying - very entertaining! Party guests loved it!

Chris Martin:

Thank you Allison. Your piano was a joy to play. I rarely get the opportunity to play out as the musicians say( put it all in the instrument without restraint). Thank you for the very kind and savvy revue.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 30, 2018From Oak Park, IL

Chris' background is what led me to contact him while interviewing pianist talent for my dad's 90th birthday. It was a rather complex event with some scheduled speeches and two separate groups of people attending. I asked Chris to learn a short Polish birthday song to follow Happy Birthday, as well as, a song from 70 years ago. Both of these songs were important to us. HE UNDERSTOOD and graciously agreed to learn them. WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE CHOOSING CHRIS. He played beautifully. Many of the 100 attendees commented on how well he played. He followed the special speech and music program perfectly as we had previously discussed by email. Highly recommended!

Anniversary PartyReviewed on December 10, 2017From Arlington Heights, IL

A pleasure to meet Chris as he a very nice, prrfoesional, and accommodating person. We had him for my parents surprise 45th anniversary and it would magnificent! He provided me a list of repertoire -> picked my songs -> added some additions -> he showed up early -> asked key questions -> payed great! I provided Chris with an itinerary so he could be better prepared which worked out great. Would gladly hire Chris again!!

WeddingReviewed on October 7, 2017From Chicago, IL

Chris was great. He was easy to communicate with during the planning process to go over details of our wedding. He also played two pieces for us during the ceremony that were not on his repertoire list. His ambient music during our cocktail hour was great. I highly recommend him!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 2, 2016From Flossmoor, IL

Chris arrived early ready to work. He took request played along with our sing-A-long even though most all of us were off key. He is the consummate player and was humorous and even sang along when we were truly off key. He treated us all to a roaring finality and my guest were truly impressed

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 6, 2016From Highland Park, IL

Chris's piano performance at the reception I gave for my son and daughter-in law was wonderful. The music truly added to the joy of the occasion and he plays beautifully. He gave me a long list of songs beforehand for me to choose and kept to my selections. I would definitely recommend him!

Chris was a great addition to our Golf Outing! He is very talented and added in songs to reflect our "theme" for the day. It was a pleasure to work with Chris and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 11, 2015From Chicago, IL

We could not have been more pleased with Chris Martin as our cocktail hour entertainer. His selections totally matched the mood, venue and wishes of the bride and groom. A friend of ours, who is an accomplished pianist himself, remarked to me that Chris' arrangements were wonderful. Chris, thank you so much for making this evening memorable. My only regret is that we did not have more time to enjoy your beautiful music and talent. I wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone who wants a truly talented musician for any event.

Chris was very responsive in the pre-function phase of our event, arrived on time, was professional in his interaction with our team, and is very talented. I would highly recommend him and will plan on using him for any other events that we facilitate in Chicago.
