Paul was amazing! Such a pleasant person and a wonderful and talented musician. He played for our wedding reception in Bisbee, AZ and the family was dancing and singing along. The kids loved joining him on stage to sing songs as well. It was really perfect.
Response from Paul & Elizabeth:
Thank you for the opportunity to perform at your wedding reception and be part of your celebration. Carolyn, her husband Dan, and their family and friends were a delightful group to play for. Everyone was very friendly, the children were terrific performers, and the venue in Bisbee was wonderful! Thank you, Carolyn!!!
Paul played for Hotel Tucson City Center and we love him! He interacts with the guests and is very pleasant to work with.
Response from Paul & Elizabeth:
Thank you Shawn & Maria! All the staff at the Hotel Tucson City Center were welcoming, professional and friendly. The facility with the olympic pool, the bar and restaurant, was a beautiful venue for playing music. The guests did enjoy a variety of music oldies, folk songs (many requested), soft rock, and other popular covers. I had a blast! Thank you!
Paul Martin was the perfect choice for our father's 95th birthday celebration. Song choice was spot on for this venue and Paul's professional service was greatly appreciated! Gigsalad .com made it easy. Thank you, Paul!
Paul entertained at a dinner party that I had for a friends 70th birthday. He knew all our favorite songs, encouraged our participation, was a good entertainer, very professional but still lots of fun....definitely a hit with my guests.

What to Expect
We will create a musical program to meet your wishes based on genre, era, or other requests for your event that fits within our repertoire. If you wish some laid-back music to listen to, or maybe, as a sing-along… traditional, folk, folk-rock, soft-rock, maybe some original songs - love ballads, uplifting songs, politically charged, something irreverent, secular, humanist? You can expect passionate and heartfelt music, and an engaging and fun time!
Paul has been performing for years as a solo singer songwriter musician, performing songs from the 30’s through today, playing guitar, ukulele and harmonica. He writes humanist, sometimes irreverent, often politically charged original songs reminiscent of 60’s protest folk songs, with a passion for social justice, equality, and peace.
Elizabeth comes from a musical family from New Orleans and has recently joined Paul, bringing some wonderful harmonies and vocal interpretations to their thoughtful material. In addition to her beautiful voice, she also plays ukulele and adds some subtle percussion to many songs.
The vocal duo of Paul & Elizabeth bring an eclectic fusion of folk, folk-rock, contemporary covers and passionate original songs to every event.
