Music for me is simply a life-long love! My very first gig was when I was 10 years old playing drums in my brother’s band jamming out to Ventures and basically surfer music. I started playing guitar when I was 8 years old and eventually moved on from Ventures music to The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, CSN, Allman Brothers and then finally to Al Di Meola and Larry Carlton and so many others. I felt compelled to learn more about music and graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Classical Guitar Performance degree in 1986. Classical Guitar music goes back to the 15th & 16th centuries but I really needed to join the 20th century so I moved to Hollywood to attend Musician's Institute and the Guitar Institute of Technology(GIT). I Graduated in 1987. GIT is like a business vocational institute for musicians and it was fantastic. I got to meet and attend performances from many of my guitar idols and in some cases I got to play with them, too.
Over the years I have performed at the Tennessee Inaugural Ball in 1998 for Bill Clinton's second inauguration plus TV, radio, studio, night clubs, hotel gigs, private parties, weddings & receptions, arts & crafts fairs, art gallery openings, business functions, etc., etc.
My solo guitar and vocal performance includes Contemporary Acoustic Guitar, Core Classical Guitar from Renaissance & Baroque to Spanish Romantic to Contemporary arrangements of Classic Rock tunes (Beatles, Classical Gas, etc.), 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.
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! GUITAR LESSONS, TOO!

John Martinez is arguablythe finest guitarist and vocalist in ABQ. His repertiore 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 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. 09/07/13: Corporate Event Reviewed on: 09/12/2013
