Martin was great, I can't recommend him highly enough. Great to deal with before the event, and at the event was just brilliant. Music that was suitable for the party, playing a good mix of different types, and Martin has an amazing voice, the video's dont do him justice!

Martin did a great job for us at our wedding. He catered for our exact requirements, and liaised with our venue's coordinator before the day to make sure everything was planned. His music was great - entertaining for all of the age groups present.

Birthday party in Belgrave Rd, London E11 3QR, UK I was really tentative about having a performer at my party, given the strict numbers allowed and conditions imposed due to covid, but I was very happy that I did. Everyone loved Martin and his acoustic performance, his performance style really lent itself to relaxing everyone and building a lovely atmosphere... We are already planning a larger party at the end of the summer, just for an excuse to have him back!!
