Talented, original, flexible all-in-1!
“We approached Gabriela, the lead to Red Velvet Sounds, and asked if she’d be willing and able to play with someone that could do the traditional Indian music and sounds. […] We were absolutely blown away with what she came up with! […] All of our guests were absolutely blown away with the band, how well they played together, the Indian and American music, it all was so fantastic. We’re so appreciative and would highly recommend them for any and all events! Gabriela was personable, easy to work with, very flexible, and extremely considerate. All in all, a great experience.”

Classy & Eye-Catching
“A fine match for our diverse crowd of 300 neighborhood residents, professionals and activists gathered in a big tent in the heart of Boston. People sat up front in the chairs nearest the stage and actively enjoyed the music, following the lyrics, the beat and the singer’s sinuous moves. Comments from guests were uniformly enthusiastic.”

“We recently booked RED VELVET SOUNDS since our friends highly recommended them! I then checked out their website and that left me with a very positive first impression. When I first listened to their audio samples, I immediately knew, Gabriela Martina is going to be the right person for our surprise. My parents LOVE this kind of music! When the four of us heard the Jazz duo by RED VELVET SOUNDS performing live, it sounded even better than we’d imagined! It was the absolute highlight during the 40th wedding anniversary of my parents and we only got extremely positive feedback from our guests. They left our party with Gabriela Martina’s gorgeous and soulful voice in their hearts. Not to leave out the virtuosic pianist Jiri Nedoma! From the booking communication, a smooth set up and payment it all went absolutely care free and uncomplicated in any way! They seem both very professional and kind people and musicians! Gabriela Martina, many thanks to you and your group and we all hope, that you’ll have a million more gigs with RED VELVET SOUNDS. Sing it girl!”
-Cathy D., Boston, MA
“By chance we had dinner at beat hotel in Boston and listened to the wonderful and expressive music of Gabriela Martina! We really enjoyed her music and would book her immediately if we did not have to go back to Europe! :-)”

Tearful eyes and deeply touched hearts…
“During the preparations for our wedding in 2012, we received recommendations about the beautiful and talented Jazz vocalist/songwriter, Gabriela Martina, from friends of ours. After a fantastic evening at a jazz club in New York and a short meeting with Gabriela Martina, our choice was made right then and there! We just wanted HER for this special day in our life!!! And it was definitively the right decision! Our song requests for the wedding ceremony such as our favorite love songs from stars like Whitney Houston, Céline Dion, Bette Middler etc. were not a problem at all for Gabriela Martina and she adjusted her repertoire wonderfully and seemed very accommodating to our wishes. People sat with tearful eyes and deeply touched hearts during the whole ceremony. I will never forget this moment in my life. We asked RED VELVET SOUNDS to play some more smooth jazz, light swing music while our guests were having dinner and later for the party they came out with funky, groovy and soulful songs that fit perfect! They seemed very open and flexible in terms of music genre and cleary – we had a blast! Thanks RED VELVET SOUNDS for a very professional performance in any way and your wonderful voice, Gabriela Martina: you guys made our big day unforgettable for everyone!”
-Stefanie P., Springfield, VT

Red Velvet Sounds – Great!
“We hired Gabriela & her trio for a private club event/party. They performed a live acoustic performance with nice funk, jazz and popular repertoire. We had a great night and some of our colleagues were asking about their performance schedule and facebook/web pages to follow them. That would be great to listen them again! Thank you so much Red Velvet Sounds! Greetings from Boston, MA.”

Gabriela Martina: fantastic, professional entertainer
“I had the pleasure of hearing Gabriela play at Ryles a couple years back so was excited to find that she was booking for private parties. My boyfriend is quite a live music lover as well so we thrilled to have the opportunity to have Gabriela and her group play for my 60th birthday party in Hull. Her music versatility and skill level along with a pleasing stage presence and personality was one of the highlights of the party!”

Gabriela Martina: A Big Hit at NewBridge on the Charles
“I’m a program specialist for a very exclusive retirement community in Dedham. I heard Gabriela singing as she was giving voice lessons to a child I knew and immediately wanted to hire her and her band to play at NewBridge on the Charles, which I did. Her music, voice and accompanying musicians were incredible and so well recieved by our residents. Gabriela is warm, engaging and has the voice of an angel!”

My Mom’s 50th was a blast!
