Introduction: Marty, bringing the party to any occasion! Live music, DJ music, and any combination of both! Performing 150+ shows a year since 2003 Nightengale is no stranger to the stage. Presenting his show in a solo & duo formats frontman Marty Nightengale's magnetic charisma, powerful voice, and groove based guitar create a fun & entertaining show that blends upbeat pop/rock with a strong soulful edge. Nightengale's strength lies in the ability to put on an entertaining show with the versatility to play any genre of music for any event type & audience, and he is able to go between live music sets and DJ sets. This versatility makes him equally at home in situations that range from getting the crowd to sing along & dance all night at a wedding/party, to intimate ceremony & cocktail hour music, to professional corporate events, and even performing Christmas/Winter Holiday favorites (I've performed at the Red Rocks Church, John Elway Motors, and the Victory Motors holiday parties multiple years in a row).

From the Groom: Marty is the GOAT. You won’t be disappointed, Marty and Drew brought the fire all night. I’ve known Marty for years and you won’t find a harder working, more approachable entertainer than him. He will go above and beyond your expectations and make sure you have nothing to worry about on your big day! Highly highly recommended! From the Bride: If I could give Marty a thousand stars I would! As a bride who was very busy with work when planning a wedding, I highly valued that I could rely on Marty to understand my vision and put together an amazing music/MC plan for our wedding day without me having to be involved in every single detail. He is well versed in weddings and special events, he is a professional who is able to discern what you want and make it happen efficiently, and he is just plain talented! There were very few aspects to the day I was able to let go of and trust the vendor, but I would trust Marty a million times over. He is awesome!

We were very lucky to have Marty perform at our company event. He was professional, charismatic and entertaining! I'll definitely call him for future events and enthusiastically recommend him to anyone needling live music entertainment.

Marty was the highlight of our wedding reception. He is positive, personable & entertaining. He kept the wedding activities moving and made everything fun. He took the time to learn key family members names, what kind of music we wanted, specific songs to play and not to play. When he sang, the crowd went wild! He was so fantastic, we recommended to my good friend and he played at their wedding. And also played at my daughters wedding. I would hire Marty again for any event we have!

I literally cannot say enough good things or emphasize strongly enough how pivotal Marty and his saxophonist were in making our wedding amazing. From the moment they started playing at the reception, our dance floor was packed. I don't even know if they took a break!! They. Were. Incredible. And he was so great to work with - he completely captured our musical wishes and read the crowd. He has the world's greatest 90s mashup, and had everyone from the 3 year old to our 80 year old grandma dancing. He has a great questionnaire that helps guide the music choices, can DJ and alternate with live music, can MC, helped coordinate our vendors, and put us so much at ease. I am not exaggerating, so many guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to and I give Marty so much credit for that. He would have been worth 3 times the fee. We also have very specific requests for first dance and parent dances and he adapted the songs and tempos and length and learned them and played them live for us. He had great suggestions for songs for some components of the wedding where we had a hard time picking them (recessional, processional, mom/son, etc. ) If you're debating a DJ or band - do yourself a favor and look into Marty. We are obsessed.

We had Marty for our 4th of July party this year. He was fantastic! He was great to work with and his music was outstanding. We will definitely hire Marty for another event.
