Chris Martin has been a house pianist at the Ritz Carlton and Four Season hotels in Chicago since 1989. In this capacity he has played piano for President George H. W. Bush, Chinese President Jiang Jemin, 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 work as a hotel pianist, he has played piano at corporate functions in every major venue in the city. In 2002 he was voted best ambient music in Chicago Magazine's Best of Chicago issue. Chris is available for your wedding reception, wedding ceremony, corporate event, party or any other event where high quality, professional and artistic music is desired. If a piano is not on premises, he has an excellent state of the art keyboard and small PA system that allows him to play to an intimate gathering of 20 or a midsize hall with 200 guests.
