Review by Cathy S.

Bartlett, IllinoisDec 2019Christmas Party

I'm a musician who hired Martini Lunch to play for an event I hosted. Leader Tim Hays is a true professional and great to work with for the event. We hired the jazz quartet with vocal doubling as: bass/piano/percussion/sax For three hours background music for a dinner event of 100 people. Perfect. They easily added songs I pre-requested and even arranged a tune for me. Easy to email for questions with quick turn around time.

Review by Sherilynn A.

Chicago, IllinoisDec 2019Corporate Function

Mr. Williams is the consummate professional! He took our company holiday party up a notch by providing a festive and melodious ambiance and background. I had several people ask me where I found him and indicate that they thought he really added a touch of class to the event. Will definitely recommend him to anyone and book him again should I have an opportunity to do so.
