" Before the wedding Martin was easy to get hold off and quick to respond to our emails. We were very pleased with the set that Martin played during the evening. He was fantastic at reading what was getting people dancing and playing the tunes that everyone wanted to hear. He mixed in the requests that we had made with a great choice of tunes over the course of the night. We've had a number of comments from guests on how good the music was which is always a great sign and everyone felt that they could approach Martin and ask for requests. We had a great night with all our guests dancing to Martin's excellent choice of songs! We have been really pleased with the service we have received from Gigz Management. "

" Hello, I am so very sorry that it has taken so long for either of us to be in touch. In is in no way reflective of our thoughts on the brilliant band / dj and service you offer, with which we were absolutely thrilled and would have no hesitation on recommending you to everyone. The Buzz were simply fantastic - an incredible talent and a joy to have there. The combination of them and Martin Herity was brilliant - seamless - and the dancefloor was packed from the first dance until the last one (which seemed to come around far too quickly). The music really made a brilliant party - we have had so many guests (of all ages!) asking where we found you. Thank you too for your great management service, I have to say it was such a relief for me to be dealing with such a professional operation - I had utter confidence that you would deliver, which you certainly did! Many, many thanks indeed. "

" Yes it was brilliant – Martin was great. He stuck it out until shortly after midnight; no one tells me anything, so I’d already said to him it would probably be all done by half ten. Great night!!! "

" Response to my initial phone call was within the hour and everything worked really well from the first visit when we talked about the set up, music choices and lighting. On the evening the DJ arrived earlier than expected and had more than enough time to set up. I had complete confidence in him. The party was a huge success and the dance floor was packed -- what more can I say! "

" Martin was great. He arrived promptly and got on with setting up in a calm and proffessional manner while all around him was chaos and I was running around like a headless chicken. At least he was ready when my first guests turned up! Throughout the night Martin played songs from the playlist I had given him, only deviating when asked for specific songs, or style of song, that I had not put on the playlist, when asked by my guests. All of which he dutifully complied with. He read the crowd well and kept everyone dancing and whooping all night. I was asked where I had got him from several times during the evening as he was doing such a good job. All in all Martin was great. "
