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 Martin:
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 Martin:
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!

What to Expect
I will create a musical program to meet your wishes based on genre, era, or other requests for your event that fits within my 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, humanist? You can expect passionate and heartfelt music, and an engaging and fun time!
Paul performs as a solo singer-songwriter singing songs from the ’30s and ’40s through today. With guitar, ukulele, and harmonica he provides a fun and engaging show with folk, folk-rock, soft-rock, oldies, and heartfelt original songs.
Paul has been performing folk, folk-rock, and soft rock contemporary songs for years as a solo singer-songwriter. Now semi-retired, he is able to focus more on his passion for music, songwriting, and performing.
With the ukulele, he sings songs from the '30s and '40s, sometimes including in the irresistible sound of a kazoo. For more contemporary cover songs from the '60s and beyond he plays guitar and harmonica. He brings an engaging and fun program to every performance.
His original heartfelt songs include stories from his travels, the joy, and heartache of love, his emerging worldview, and reflections in personal growth. Whether you wish for a program of tender and intimate ballads or songs with a passion for social justice, equality, and peace, Paul has a song for you!
Ideal venues are cafes, house concerts, community events, birthday celebrations, and other private parties.
