Jennifer Spingola Violin & DJ
Unbelievable!! People keep raving about how amazing she was!!
Having an electric violinist added a unique twist to the typical live music at a ceremony. She is so talented that people were truly in awe listening to her.
She can play classical music, or music people recognize. She played songs like "Faithfully" and "At last" before the ceremony, and then played more of top 40-type music for our cocktail hour--everyone loved it!
My only regret is that we did not discover her before we had hired our DJ for the reception! We wished we could have had her performing for our entire wedding and reception!
We chose Jennifer to play at our wedding ceremony because she has that gift of excellent musicianship and intuition. We wanted to set the tone and prepare our guests with an atmosphere of intimacy and love and Jennifer's music did just that. Our guests were blown away and wanted to know how we found her. Jennifer is easy to work with, extremely professional from start to finish, and is hip. She knows her stuff and can customize music for your wedding. Her assistant, Chrissy was a joy to work with, very responsive, pleasant, and professional. They make a great team. I do business with them again in a second!!
The music Jennifer provided at our wedding was amazingly beautiful and we feel very fortunate to have had her as our wedding musician. Jennifer played for 30 minutes pre-ceremony, during the ceremony then for 2 hours following. We chose specific music for each part and she was very flexible and agreeable to providing exactly what we wanted. She was perfect! Her website is excellent. On her website you can see her extensive song list and videos so you know exactly what her music sounds like and how she performs. I also appreciated how responsive and timely she was via e-mail since throughout my planning I was working full-time with a busy schedule and through e-mail we were able to arrange all of the detail. We had perfect weather for our outdoor June wedding and while our guests were enjoying conversation, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres they were treated to her concert like music. We are not exaggerating when we say that everyone at our wedding complimented us on our choice of a violinist. She was new and different and helped to set the tone for our very memorable and beautiful wedding. We highly recommend Spags Music . Thank you Jennifer!
We connected with Spags Music through our wedding coordinator and were so impressed with her musical stylings that we booked them immediately. Jennifer played the violin during the cocktail hour and throughout the reception. The saxophonist also played as well during the dancing portion. All of our friends and family kept telling us how much they loved the music and it really added to the mood of our reception. Our guests are a dancing bunch and I can honestly say the dance floor was never empty. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for unique sounds and talented musicians.
Jennifer was absolutely amazing on our wedding day! From the beautiful classical music selection during the ceremony, to the Top 40 and R&B hits during the cocktail hour, to the contemporary love songs during the dinner, she awed our guests with her unbelievable performance on her violin! Jennifer topped off our special day strolling through the tables during dinner making for an elegant and over the top evening. Jennifer, we can not thank you enough! We wish the the very best in life and in your musical career. We will definetely keep in touch! God Bless!

Highly recommended! Very professional and I received good reviews from my guests as well.
We hired Jennifer as our violinist to play some background music during our procession and later at the cocktail reception. She was absolutely magnificent. We would recommend her to anyone for any event. Thank you Jennifer!!
Jennifer performed so beautifully at our wedding ceremony. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she even worked with me beforehand on my song selections. She also exchanged emails with my friend from Florida to coordinate a duet during the memorial candle lighting portion of our ceremony. I asked them to perform Josh Groban's "You Raise Me Up" and there was not a dry eye in the house!
Jennifer is not only talented and sweet, she is also gorgeous. She wore special attire I requested which tied into our wedding theme and it could not have been more perfect! I would not hesitate to recommend her...
It's not hard to praise Jennifer's work (just listen!). I had known of Jennifer from prior engagements (playing Dave Matthews Band Cover's), as well as a through a holiday party (playing today's trendy tunes). As soon as my wife and I were engaged, we called Jennifer to play our ceremony & cocktail hour. Jennifer was always responsive to our suggestions and requests, and was always open and honest with her own. Additionally she arrived on time, setup was perfect and not one hitch on the sound!
Now getting past the generic response, let me just say this ...she was the talk of our wedding, EVERYONE loved the cocktail jams (which we let her run the show). During the ceremony she played the classical tunes (opening the ceremony > bride entrance) to perfection and even threw in a DMB tune for our exit!
She is an absolute professional who takes her trade seriously and executes in stride. Spend a few minutes listening to her music on the website, you will blown away; not only by the amount of music she can play (+ requests), but also by her natural talent.
It was a very unique experience for our wedding, and we are just looking for another excuse to have her come and play!
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

Jennifer was absolutely amazing. Her sound was on point, she is adorable and a first class lady. She was open, friendly and all of our guest raved about her and that violin. She brought much joy to my daughter's Wedding Day. I highly recommend her.
Jennifer from the bottom of our hearts, we so enjoyed you. Your originality, your personality and your smile and of-course your ability to play will be a lasting memory. Hope to see you again.

Jennifer was very flexible with time and place when we asked her to play during the Ceremony. She came completely prepared and played our music we requested in the order we asked. Our guests completely loved her. It made our ceremony special and intimate. She was also flexible with our budget and is very accommodating. I highly recommend Jennifer Spingola on any events and would hire her again on other events.
My Husband and I were graced with the beauty and talent of Ms. Jennifer Spingola. We were so grateful to have her travel over 2 hours to be a part of our wedding providing our ceremony music and cocktail hour reception. Our wedding consisted of a blend of traditional Catholic, Rock and Pop songs which all were via Jennifer's talent and electric violin. I got so many compliments from our guests on how professional and friendly she was to everyone through the cocktail hour. She played a custom listed of songs that we loved and made sure we got exactly what we ever hoped for. I'm so happy Jennifer was a part of our wedding and we couldn't have selected a better musician and true artist to carry out our vision of our musical wishes for our wedding.
Wow, our wedding at the Burbank Castaway was beautiful. Jennifer made the process very simple. She even helped with song selections. Based upon our discussion with her, we totally trusted and went with her suggestions. We got some many compliment about her performance. She came early and set-up. She complimented our wedding with her style, music and beautifulness. We went with an R&B style, Luther Vandross / Alicia Keys. When my wife walked down the aisle, I cried because how perfectly Jennifer then played our song choice and it was just too surreal. thank you Jennifer. I would TOTALLY RECOMMEND Jennifer for any wedding or occassions .... we may just hire her for a party or anything else just to hear her play the violin again.
I expected great things from Jennifer, she blew us all away with her talent! The music she selected for our Celtic wedding was incredible, unique, and fit perfectly. Other guests at the boutique hotel in Tucson came out to listen to her and were commenting how wonderful she was. She was great to work with, very professional, but when you get down to it, exceptionally gifted. She was tremendous!
I would recommend Jennifer to every bride and groom out there! She was extremely responsive to all of my (many!) questions and made great suggestions on ceremony music. The music itself was wonderful-elegant, beautiful and made a romantic atmosphere during our ceremony and during our luncheon. All of our guests commented on how wonderful it was and also how unique. She was very flexible on the flow of our wedding day as well- we originally said we would do our first dance later in the day and then changed our minds and gave her about 5 minutes notice that we were ready to go. She did not hesitate and got everything ready very quickly. I didn't have to worry about anything-Jennifer contacted the manager at the wedding venue and arranged everything. She was on time, professional, and definitely gave our wedding the ambiance we were looking for!
Jennifer responded very quickly to my inquiry about needing a musician for my wedding ceremony. She was always very easy to work with, and easily worked out all of the requests I asked of her. I was so impressed with the quality of music she provided for my ceremony (at a great cost) and that she was able to fulfill all of my music requests, making my day so special and personalized. Many of my guests commented how on how great she was!! I couldn't have been happier with her services.
We first met Jennifer Spingola on Valentine's Day 2010 at a restaurant in Los Angeles. We were blown away by how awesome she was on the electric violin! We knew we wanted her to play for our wedding ceremony and booked her immediately at a very reasonable price. She is very personable and easy to work with; she even accommodated our request for her to learn a completely new song for the bridal processional one month before our wedding despite her busy touring schedule. On the day of the wedding there were a few hiccups in our plans, but one thing that went off without a hitch was Jennifer's playing. It was apparent that we made an excellent choice in booking her for the ceremony. Our guests raved at how beautiful her playing was as she serenaded them while they awaited the start of the ceremony. Our highlight was when she began playing the bridal processional song ("He Loves Me" by Jill Scott) as it was our first time hearing her rendition. We felt the true emotion of the song through her music and it made the bridal walk down the aisle even more special than we previously imagined. We highly recommend Jennifer for weddings or any special event as she is a gem of an artist.
Jennifer thanks so much for everything. We wish you abundant happiness and success in your music career!

Jennifer ("Spags") is the consummate professional. She performed at a "happy hour" before our wedding ceremony, during the procession and recession, and as part of the band Stepping Feet in our reception. Spags consulted with us on the type of music we wanted, was very responsive to our needs, gave excellent suggestions, and ultimately exceeded our expectations, helping to make it a wonderful event. She is a phenomenal and highly versatile violinist (we heard such comments by more than one of our guests). I would use her again in a heartbeat.
Jennifer was truly professional, reliable, and also very personable. She was so easy to work with and ultimately an amazing performer. The electric violin really provided something unique and amazing to our day - she was flawless! We couldn't have asked for anything more, we loved all that she added to our special day!
Jennifer Spingola is a remarkable musician who added an element of fun and sophistication to our wedding that was more than I hoped for! She was pleasant and professional, and her electric violin (my first introduction to one and I'm in LOVE with it!) opened up a plethora of unexpected musical options from classical to country to rock n roll that made the ceremony perfect and kept our guests dancing all night!
There are many talented musicians available, but some truly stand out, and this little California girl definitely did! I feel very blessed to have had her at my wedding and can't recommend her highly enough!
"Jennifer exceeded our expectations on our wedding day! Her performance on the violin, for both the ceremony and the reception, was sensational and our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music. She belongs to our favorite local cover band and was able to provide the entire band for our reception as well! She is an extremely talented and professional musician and knowing that she was handling the music for our big day really gave us one less thing to worry about. I would strongly recommend booking Jennifer as a musician for your wedding."
