Review by Laurel H.

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!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 25, 2011From Chicago, IL

We hired Mr. Martin for our wedding ceremony and reception and he was delightful! We requested a special song that he learned last minute and was able to play and sing beautifully. He's an incredibly talented musician, very accommodating and very professional. He made several announcements for us, brought his own equipment, and just made my day that much easier. We heard so many great comments from our guests and are so happy with out choice to go with Mr. Martin. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone considering entertainment for an event and will certainly keep him in mind for our future events!

Chris was very easy to work with and quick to respond to emails. He brought so much to our community event. His talent was exceptional and he added that perfect touch to the dinner portion of our event. Would highly recommend Chris to anyone!

Chris played at our company Open House and I have to say that he was unbelievable. The music was wonderful. I will recommend Chris to all of my associates. His professional and talent is something that is not readily found! Thanks Chris!!!

Christmas PartyReviewed on December 11, 2010From Chicago, IL

Chris played piano at a private Christmas party and helped create a most festive atmosphere. His many years of experience are evident in the rich, deep songbook he carries in his head, and he was willing and able to indulge any guest request. And in the lead-up to the event, he was accommodating of our needs and nothing but professional in our dealings.

Corporate FunctionReviewed on March 23, 2011From Chicago, IL

I have been a meeting planner for C-level and VIP events for 24 years and never have I experienced such professionalism and talent. Chris understood that this was a business networking function and played with panache and grace as background for our evening. He played a wide and varied array of music for nearly three hours without a single sheet of music. A wonderful, talented gentleman that would be a chart topper at any event!

Chris did a beautiful job playing the music for my wedding ceremony. I had a few song requests and Chris had no problem learning the songs for me. He was excellent at communicating throughout the whole process.

Wedding Cocktail HourReviewed on July 10, 2011From Chicago, IL

Chris did an excellent job at our wedding cocktail hour. He emailed us a list of songs sorted by genre that he would be able to play for us, which allowed us to create our own play list. Unfortunately, we were so busy with the preparations that we forgot to create our own play list. I then asked Chris to create a list of songs to play based on the 3 genres that we liked. Chris happily and readily helped us out. His playing was wonderful, and very entertaining. I would put Chris at the top of the list for a pianist for your next event.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on March 11, 2011From Chicago, IL

We didn't want to get caught up in the details of planning a wedding and thankfully, Chris helped us accomplish that. We were able to plan and coordinate all of the music via email, although he did make himself available by phone if we felt the need to talk. He was prompt, professional, talented, and accomodated all of our requests. It was one less wedding detail to worry about through the planning process and on the wedding day, as Chris came in and simply played what we requested via email.

Anniversary PartyReviewed on January 29, 2011From Chicago, IL

A consummate pianist! Chris Martin performed flawlessly for the entire party, playing hours of music that we had chosen from his extensive song list. Our guests were delighted--we were delighted! I can't recommend him highly enough! Chris is professional (for example: promptly answering all of our questions leading up to the event) and extremely talented. A pleasure to work with and a pleasure to listen to. Our guests are still passing along compliments. Thank you, Chris, for making our party a real celebration.

My experience with Mr. Martin was outstanding. As the bride, I didn't have to worry about a thing with him. He was very professional and he played an outstanding set. I loved every minute that he played and he made out ceremony that much more special to us. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you!

Chris was charming and very talented, and he did his utmost to accomodate our very demanding guests. And little did I know that he's a talented singer as well as pianist! I'd love to have him back for another party sometime.
