We have hired Ike & Martin for many weddings and events in the Lake Tahoe area. There are so many positive things to say about them that we don’t even know where to start! Their performance is always phenomenal from start to finish, with an energy and enthusiasm that is un-matched by anyone else. As well as being extremely wonderful to work with, the duo has always been very professional and organized throughout the entire planning process. They have always been a huge help with offering suggestions and coordinating music. They are extremely versatile, playing the most beautiful ceremony songs and can even keep the dance party going long into the night. We would highly recommend Ike & Martin to all future brides and grooms – especially if you want to ensure your guests will have a night they won’t forget!
One Fine Day Events and Tahoe Unveiled
Lake Tahoe, CA.
We worked through Four Count Concepts to hire Ike & Martin for a business cocktail party at The Resort at Squaw Creek. They were laid back and attentive getting the details of the party together and really brought their ” A-Game” to the event. Ike called me day of to find out any last minute details and showed up right on time. They rocked the house that night, even getting some of our guest dancing and singing along. They have a cool song request program where guest can request songs directly from their smart phones which was also a big hit. Since they played soooo well the party ended up going an additional hour over our booked time and they went above and beyond by accommodating our request to play an hour longer. If you are thinking about music for you next party or event – don’t miss the opportunity to work with Ike & Martin, you won’t regret it!

I’ve been a fan of Ike and Martin for years. Recently I began promoting concerts in the Pollock Pines area and I was delighted to book Ike & Martin for an outdoor summer concert. On show day, we were hit by a freak hail storm that hit just before they were scheduled to arrive. The hail was so bad that Highway 50 was closed. Over 6 inches of hail fell in less that 30 minutes! Being the consummate professionals that they are, Ike and Martin braved the storm and the road closures and made it to the gig with smiles on their faces. The show went on and they were so good that the crowd ignored the lingering cold and drizzle, dancing the night away and screaming for encores. The show was a huge success thanks to the professionalism and amazing talent of Ike and Martin. For weeks after the show I would meet people who raved about their show and wanted to know when they would perform again. Their unique instrumentation and interpretations of songs from classic rock to alternative, country to pop put Ike and Martin are in a class by themselves. As a music fan and as a music promoter, I highly recommend Ike and Martin.

Well, they did it again! Ike and Martin were off the charts at Wine & Roses Hotel Restaurant Spa in Lodi New Year’s Eve. This year I booked them with a start time of 9:00 pm due the late start we had last year after a wedding. They didn’t disappoint us, we went non-stop into the early morning, turning the night into a private party! You just can’t beat the professionalism and talent these two have. If you’re planning an event of any size, you will not go wrong with Ike and Martin, other than it will cost you big bucks next year if you want them on New Years!!! If you’re in Tahoe, check out their schedule, it’s an evening you won’t want to miss.

Ike and Martin played for us this winter and our guests loved them. They are great entertainers for all ages. They were very professional and able to adapt to the different clientele we experience throughout the performance. It is more than just music; it is an interactive entertainment experience. We look forward to having them back!

Ike and Martin are professional musicians that are perfect for any event, and are always providing a memorable experience.

These two gents are a rare mix of "superbity" in their musicality AND outright professionalism in their commitment to play. My quest is finding them more places to share their talents. They bring songs to listen to and songs to move to. It is a person's good fortune to spend four hours in their midst.
When one plans a wedding, there are a plethora of things to carefully consider. When it came down to the question of entertainment, "DJ or live music?" there was no question in my mind that the dynamic duo of Ike and Martin would rock the wedding crowd. Everyone from 2 to 82 enjoyed the upbeat tunes and our guests grooved to the music til the very last song. Their professionalism shown through from arriving ahead of schedule, being flexible with an additional musician and the venue's size restrictions, to quickly setting up and breaking down again. Thank you Ike and Martin for creating just the fun, awesomely entertaining vibe we wanted for our wedding reception!

My wife and I first heard Ike and Martin a couple of years ago at a house concert in Carmel. It was our first house concert having been invited by a friend. We did not know what to expect. About 20 people showed up each bringing wine and food to share. It was was a real memorable evening and a fantastic concert. My wife and I could not believe these guys were playing for such a small audience and not on a bigger stage. Since then we have had 2 house concerts with Ike and Martin most recent was for our Christmas Party this past year. Our friends and clients are still talking about how much fun that evening was. We have seen Ike and Martin perform in Carmel, Danville and South Lake Tahoe which probably qualifies us as groupies!! Highly recommend catching one of the performances and also recommend having them perform for house parties.

I have had the pleasure of working with (the always entertaining) Ike & Martin on Thursday nights here at The Fresh Ketch. Not only do they bring a crowd - but they keep them and are one of the most entertaining duos I have ever seen. These talented and funny guys are always a hit with songs from, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Oasis, Pink Floyd, The Police, Flight of the Concords, and many, many more, including some great originals. It is refreshing to hear such great renditions of these songs. If you ever hear about Ike & Martin at a venue near you - it is a guaranteed good time and a must see for a night out!

THE best group in the Basin! Ike & Martin played for us several times over the winter as well as our Deck Opening Party for Memorial Weekend. These two will really be the life of your party. It is very rare to have such a high energy output from a duo but Ike & Martin brought the roof down each and every time they played (metaphorically speaking of course). With the convenience of being able to submit requests with your own cell phone and over 1,000 songs in their catalog, there is something for everyone so all demographics are able to be entertained. I look forward to booking them at our restaurant again soon as well as catching as many of their shows away from work as I can. Rock on Gentlemen!!

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ike and Martin for the last 3 years here in Lake Tahoe. As a former entertainment manager, I recognized their talent within the first few minutes of initially hearing their music. Ike and Martin are amazing musicians, warm and friendly entertainers, and true professionals. I have personally hired them to play a small intimate party in my home, as well as the entertainment for my employers annual black tie fundraiser event for 200 people. They were perfect for both events! I highly recommend them for any kind of function where great music is required.

We first had the privilege of hearing Martin play in a courtyard in Carmel. Our family fell in love with his music. When planning our daughters wedding down in that area several months later, my daughter said "do you think we could find the guy in the courtyard in Carmel"? Well we did and soon met Ike as well. Not only did they play for us at her small intimate wedding, they also joined us for the larger wedding celebration with family and friends! Everyone loved them at both events and I now feel like they are part of my family..... Our youngest son just became engaged I'm hoping for a third event with Ike & Martin!

Our group could not have hired a more perfect fit for our event! Ike + Martin were wonderful to work with during the planning portion of the event, (which we were doing from the East coast). What a talented and professional duo, I would highly recommend them to anyone that has music needs for their event! If only we could have them here in Grand Rapids, Michigan!
