John did a great job and set a nice tone for our event. We were in a small restaurant, and he did a good job adapting to the space.

About

University of New Mexico Classical Guitar Performance Graduate 1986

Guitar Institute of Technology(GIT) Graduate 1987

Performances include the Tennessee Inaugural Ball in 1998 for Bill Clinton's second inauguration plus TV, radio, studio, night clubs, hotels, private parties, weddings & receptions, arts & crafts fairs, art gallery openings, business functions, etc, etc.

My solo guitar and vocal performance includes contemporary acoustic guitar, traditional classical guitar from Renaissance & Baroque to Spanish romantic, to jazz & jazz fusion plus excellent vocal music including Beatles, Crosby, Stills & Nash, James Taylor to Garth Brookes & Keith Urban plus numerous light romantic tunes, some Spanish ballads and some original music. 

Music for me is simply a life-long love and I try very hard to provide a versatile music performance that can be appreciated by most age ranges and musical tastes.

From "Bach to Rock" John P Martinez will provide music for all Occasions!

John worked with me closely to make our memorial service so perfect and I will never be able to thank him enough. He took time with me to customize things, he worked with the sound people (I was so busy I was just glad they worked it out), and most importantly, it did all work out better than I could have even hoped for. John's voice is like butter (my term), and his guitar was so beautiful I just can't really explain. He did background music and then two songs I had chosen specifically - one he added for my service and everyone just said how awesome his music and voice were. Most importantly, he was so professional. He was on time (even a little early), he knew exactly what he was doing so I could focus on the other things I was doing, and everything went better than I could have dreamed of. I told him that my husband and I are his new "groupies" and we look forward to seeing him perform around town.

John was just the most gracious, warm, professional, and more importantly, the best musician I have ever seen. I can't say thank you enough. There were just NO glitches, great communication, affordability, and now we have hopefully made a new friend for life. Claudia Steinhauser/Albuquerque, NM

John Martinez is arguably the finest guitarist and vocalist in ABQ. His repertoire including Classical, Flamenco, Jazz, Blues, Standards and straight up Rock 'n Roll is impressive and allows total flexibility in tailoring certain styles and genres to an audience both during the same event and in other events. He can play as a solo act or with any band in the area depending on the style of music required by the venue and audience. I have employed his services for many events of all types during the past four years. Musicians work easily with him...he can play as lead or rhythm and add vocals and harmony to enhance the musical experience as needed. I cannot recommend John highly enough for any event.
