Chris Martin was the house pianist at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Chicago from 1989 to 2007. He played the tea at the Four Seasons Chicago from 2004 thru 2008. At these venues he has performed for, amongst others, President H. W. Bush, Chinese President Jiang Zemin, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, Tony Bennett, and Cardinal George. The list is as wide and varied as are the eminent guests who stay at these establishments. In addition to his hotel playing he has played corporate functions in every major venue in the city. He was voted best ambient music in Chicago Magazine's 2002 Best Of Chicago issue.

Chris has covered the gamut musically in his career. Classically trained at the American Conservatory of Music, he has been a keyboard player in top forty bands, a pianist in jazz ensembles, and piano player and singing solo artist for the last twenty years. His repertoire is vast, and his playing styles range from blues to Bach with a consummate knowledge of the American Songbook.

We hired Mr. Martin for our wedding ceremony and reception and he was delightful! We requested a special song that he learned last minute and was able to play and sing beautifully. He's an incredibly talented musician, very accommodating and very professional. He made several announcements for us, brought his own equipment, and just made my day that much easier. We heard so many great comments from our guests and are so happy with out choice to go with Mr. Martin. We would absolutely recommend him to anyone considering entertainment for an event and will certainly keep him in mind for our future events!

Chris played piano at a private Christmas party and helped create a most festive atmosphere. His many years of experience are evident in the rich, deep songbook he carries in his head, and he was willing and able to indulge any guest request. And in the lead-up to the event, he was accommodating of our needs and nothing but professional in our dealings.
