Martin took this gig at the last minute and they were AMAZING. I went to work today and everyone was talking about how amazing the music was and how it set the perfect vibe for the party. I would highly recommend Martin for any event!
Martin was great! He came to our corporate event with a guitarist and bass. The song selection was well thought out. The vocals were excellent. He was on time and very very professional. His performance tied our event together with the huge variety of music and execution. He gave us exactly what we asked for. I highly recommend Martin and the Dead Guys.
