These happy clients are making me blush with their glowing reviews! I’m so honored that they chose to include me in their day and nothing makes me happier than knowing that I helped to create memories that will last a lifetime! I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I do : )
Jennifer Spingola is the total package…and a hot package she is! Talented, charming and passionate about her craft, she brings everything she’s got to every performance. And in case you haven’t noticed…she’s got a lot!
For our destination wedding in Malibu, CA my husband and I chose to work with Spags Music and her entire team of Saxophonist, DJ and emcee. We booked them without even hearing them perform or even meeting them – and we were still blown away and our expectations were exceeded. They were so talented but also so personable, they were able to read the room perfectly and knew when to step up the vibe or tone it down. The package described above was a great deal for everything we received and if we lived in Cali we would book them again for every event – they made it all so easy for us. If you book them for any event you will not regret it!
Spags was amazing! She was easy to work with and discuss plans. She traveled a good distance to come to our wedding, and we are so thankful. She took song requests from us and even sent me a recording of her playing along with our first dance song so my husband and I could practice beforehand. All our guests thoroughly enjoyed her performance. She really complimented our special day and we highly recommend her.
Spags was easy to work with. We were so busy we really didn’t want to have to curate our entire music selection so we mostly put it all in their hands and they came through. They allow you to select as much or as little personalization as you want. She even mixed in some unique and cultural music we requested.
We booked the whole night with electric violin, saxophone, DJ and MC. Guests gave great feedback too and many said they’ve never danced that much at a wedding before.
Had a great time!
Amazing, professional, creative!
Spags played while our guests entered the room and found their seats, as well as during the bride and groom grand entrance and for a short performance later in the evening. She stole the show. She was professional and easy to work with from the beginning. She put thought into her performance and the songs that would work best. All of my friends wanted to know where I found her. I just wish we lived in California to hire her for another event. Maybe we’ll fly her out for one of our anniversary parties!
Jennifer is an amazing artist!
Jennifer is amazing!! She played for my daughter’s wedding this past fall. Not only is her style and energy beautiful,as well as her physical beauty, Jennifer plays the violin in the most emotional and creative way. Her “zen” is so special and her performances true to herself. That being said, Jennifer was able to play a varied array of music with such grace, wonderment and heart opening. I would highly recommend Jennifer for any event. She is fabulous!!!!!
Spags was absolutely fantastic! We would 100% recommend her to any couple thinking about employing her for their musical entertainment.
We hired Spags to not only play her electric violin but also her whole team who did the DJing and the MCing at our wedding. They were all fantastic!
Starting with Spags herself, her ability is incredible and range of songs breathtaking. We had classic music for the procession of Meriel down the aisle, followed by pop songs during the cocktail hour. Our guests all loved it! One of the coolest things about Spags is that she is different. We have both been to lots of awesome weddings but have never seen anyone like Spags and that novelty I think really added to our experience.
With regards the rest of her crew they were all so professional. The MC kept everything flowing really well with the speeches etc and getting everyone moved from cocktail hour to the dinner table (sounds silly but these little logistical things matter). The DJ was absolutely great, she played all the songs we requested beforehand and played songs people asked for on the night whilst keeping the dance floor rocking the whole time.
Overall Spags and her team were one of our favorite vendors (we loved them all) and we thought she was super great value for money and we would 100% recommend her.
Wonderful and effortless!!!!
Spags was absolutely sensational!! She was on time, looked beautiful and played the BEST songs! My whole family was dancing with her and they still rave about her performance to this day! Spags is so fun to watch and she adds elegance and beauty to any event!!!!
Spags is so unbelievably talented!! I was mesmerized by her insane violin skills and such upbeat performance skills on social media that I knew I had to have her at our wedding. She was one of the very first vendors we booked right after we got engaged – almost a year ahead! She was super quick to respond to our emails and the booking process was easy.
Fast forward 12 months later to our wedding day, Spags came and delivered like no other! We booked her for our pre ceremony, ceremony and cocktail entertainment and if we could do it again, I’d have her and her team for the whole night! Spags was the most talked about the entire night and our guests couldn’t stop raving about her. Her music was beautiful, she catered to the crowd – from love songs, to hip hop and oldies and she delivers a contagious energy when performing, all of our guests were in awe. I wish we had more time to just enjoy her music and performance. Now I need another good reason to throw an event, just so we can have her again!! If you want to wow your guests and give them an even more unforgettable night, you need Spags in your life!
Thank you so much Spags for making our night truly unforgettable!!
Spags and her team played at our wedding and all I can say is…. they were a 10!
Absolutely incredible; the saxs player, MC, DJ and her playing the violin was like a mini concert. To this day, people still are talking about how electrifying the music was.
Highly recommend Spags and her team!
Spags & her team were amazing to work with. The combination of the Sax Player, Violin, MC, DJ and sound engineer ensured our night ran smoothly.
Spags coordinated everything perfectly right from the start. Our venue had 3 distinct/separate areas that needed sound equipment, to which she provided everything necessary, and helped guide us on all rentals/requirements needed to set everything up.
During the planning process, Spags listened to feedback we had about our crowd, music style and more and put everything together seamlessly. She started the night with some modern violin songs during the ceremony. She also suggested we do a “Tropical House” cocktail hour, with the sax player, and it was incredible and perfect for our outdoor setting.
Our first dance, horah, father/daughter + mother/son dance, along with an absolute party for 3 straight hours on the dance floor were nothing short of amazing. Carlos (the MC) absolutely crushed it and got the crowd involved. At the end of the night Spags/Jesse (SAX) player performed together to close out the night on some House/Pop music and the crowd loved it.
SPAGS & CO: You’re awesome. Thank you!
Amazing! Our daughters wedding was planned around the availability of spags. We knew when we heard her at a prior wedding, that she would pull off an evening that would be remembered by all of our guests. And that She did with flair and professionalism. Our guests couldn’t get over the fact that she was strolling the cocktail party and actually dancing with the guests while playing her electric violin. Can’t say enough. Love her and her team!
I don’t even know where to begin? Jennifer and her team is absolutely incredible!!! I first saw Spags in Cabo, Mexico. She was playing at a wedding and immediately knew someday I wanted her to play at mine! She was so incredible- we planned our wedding day around her! Our wedding day entertainment was PERFECT thanks to Spags and her team. From the very beginning; the planning process, her professionalism, and organization…to the day of; the pre-wedding music, the ceremony, and cocktail hour, dinner music, to dancing! During cocktail hour; once the guest realized that Spags was playing live… everyone was floored/mouths dropped and all (videos are priceless). The MC services could not be more on POINT. The perfect balance of getting the crowd going, staying engaged and not constantly talking on the microphone. The electric violin and sax was unbelievable; they made there way throughout the dance floor creating the greatest party vibe that kept people wanting to stay dancing all night long. I can not even begin to tell you how many people complimented us the entertainment. A friend said, “That was the first time my husband danced with me since our wedding which was 25 years ago…He was out of his mind over the music”.
Our wedding day was incredible and perfect in many ways; but I do attribute the amazing party vibe, energy, and overall success to Spags Music. They are talented experts and do it up right!!!!
Thank you Spags! We can’t wait for another opportunity to have you play for us again!!!
We first heard spags play at a friends wedding and absolutely loved her. She was the first person we wanted to book for our wedding and she was amazing! She makes you feel like your her only client when communicating and is very easy to talk too. We would book her again in a heartbeat if we ever have another event. All of our guests loved her as well! Thanks again Jennifer, we appreciate all your dedication and hard work in doing what you love!
Spags is incredible! Her music transformed the entire vibe of our ceremony into something truly magical. I would’ve gladly paid double what she required for a few hours. She is just as talented as she is beautiful. She wowed our guests & helped create an ambiance that only live music can. She is just WOW! I gave her a few adjectives to describe the feeling I was trying to convey to my guests & she nailed it. I can’t say enough about how amazing she is!
James and I could not be more thrilled with the incredible talent that is Spags Music. Not only was the DJing phenomenal but when Spags plays her violin while walking around our wedding venue she is simply stunning, elegant, classy, and yet with that modern edginess that gets everyone excited. So many of our guest were in awe of her talent saying “Whoa is that music coming live from her?! How awesome!” Then to compliment all of Spags’ skills her MC, Carlos, truly rocked it throughout the entire wedding. Engaging in the crowd and reading his audience like a true pro. He was funny, energized, and quick on his feet to have witty responses to any sassy guests :p All in all Spags Music is a huge reason why our wedding felt so special and we would highly encourage anyone to use them and give your event that extra pizazz!
Spags was definitely a memory point of our wedding! We got married on September 17, 2016 at Spanish Hills Country Club. Our wedding guest are still talking about how great an unique she was. I hope to cross paths again with Spags in the future.
The best of the best!! if you want a special addition to your wedding or special event, look no further! i’m a local wedding planner in San diego and I highly recommend Jenn to all of my clients. I love her so much , I hired her for my own wedding in Aug. 2016. Everyone RAVED about her and I probably saw more photos/videos of her than myself on my guest social media. Lol She is so talented, beautiful and absolutely the best to work with. Thank you Jenn from Spags for making my wedding day spectacular!
Spags is definitely worth the money! We didn’t even meet her until the day of the wedding but everything turned out perfectly! Our guests loved her and she gives a nice classy feel to your event. The best part is that she plays modern songs from all genres. You will NOT be disappointed!
Spags Music is above and beyond amazing, professional, responsive and unique! Spags made our wedding so memorable and guests still talk about the impressive performance and music! Not enough words can express our gratitude to Spags! Spags is worth every penny and then some! Spags was one of the easiest vendors to work with. Not only is Spags beautiful and talented, but she and her DJ just have a natural talent for working the crowd. Thank you Spags & DJ for being a part of our special day and helping to make it perfect!
Jennifer’s performance was amazing, we found her by watching some of her videos and we were blown away! My wedding was in Mexico and she was so professional.. Her playlist had everything from classical to modern music, she was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you Jennifer!
SPAGS is amazing! I am seriously so happy we hired her for our wedding. She was the highlight of our wedding! She played for my ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and our first dance. Our first dance was amazing thanks to her. She is very talented and to top it off beautiful. All of our guests loved her! I highly recommend her. She gives that classy elegant touch to your wedding. I need to find an excuse to hire again Thank you SPAGS!
Spags was the highlight of my wedding! She played for my ceremony, cocktail hour and reception and all my guests loved her! She brought her dj and saxophonist and together they were the best entertainment. She plays every genre of music and is so much fun to watch. She was able to drive down before the wedding from Los Angeles to our venue in San Diego to meet us and discuss the music/wedding which I definitely appreciated. She is such a fun person and is so talented. It was so fun to watch her play for the crowd. I am so glad we hired her and that she was available to play! I would hire her again in a second!
Spags was the most AMAZING memory that us, bride & groom, and ALL of our guests took away from our magical night! She put on the most phenomenal performance!!!! People have not stopped talking about how hyped the dance floor was and how she “made the night”! We cannot begin to express our gratitude for her fantastic performance!!! We are forever grateful for giving us an incredible night to remember forever!!! Thank you for sharing our day with us, Spags!!!!!!!!!!
I CANNOT SPEAK HIGHLY ENOUGH OF SPAGS! She is amazing. Just google her. She is extremely talented, nice, and professional. She does everything from classical music to twists on modern songs. My now-husband and I discovered Spags while searching for a compromise to our age-old Band v. DJ argument, and we were not disappointed as she provided the best of both worlds. We hired her to play our ceremony music, during dinner (she walked around in between tables), and reception (enhancing music played by a DJ/drummer) — which was the perfect mix for us. I have several friends who got engaged shortly after my wedding and all of them have asked me about her! The grown-ups really loved her too and people are still talking about how special she made our wedding 7 months later. I can’t wait to have another event/excuse to hire Spags again!!
Hello!! My name is Laura Moses. I hired Spags Music for my recent wedding. It was located at the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa. Spags arrived to the event early, set up all here stuff with her personal sound guy (which was amazing)!!! She had three separate locations to play (ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception). Each location played a little different type of music; from classic to modern, she does it ALL! She played throughout my ENTIRE wedding. She was the best entertainer I have ever seen in my life. During the reception she would go from playing the violin to DJ-ing. She wears the most amazing costumes and she is absolutely gorgeous!!! If you want to take your wedding, party, or any type of event to the next level you NEED to hire Spags. She was the best part of my wedding and I can’t wait to hire her for the next event!!!
Although this review is slightly overdue it is nonetheless meaningful and heartfelt. I wanted to surprise my daughter and her finance with music that was relevant, yet complimentary to their November afternoon San Diego Marina-Side wedding. Knowing they didn’t want the same old traditional style band/DJ I went on youtube and viewed the incredible Spags Music. I saw how unbelievably talented she was and only hoped I could secure her for our event. Well, aside from the bride and groom, Jennifer was the highlight of the afternoon. She was the perfect touch from start
to finish. Professional in every way, from the moment I contacted her to the last note she preformed at the wedding. She is friendly, easy going, accommodating and super sweet. Her music is current, yet nostalgic, fun, yet calming, and always tasteful. Spags is unconventional, yet wonderfully enjoyable, all at the same time. The photographers and florist both commented on how great she sounded. Let me say I am not one that leaves online reviews, but felt compelled to share how fantastic our day was because of Jennifer’s extraordinary music and kindness. Her performance made everyone’s day that much more special!! Months later the bride and groom, along with their guests, continue to talk about how unique and memorable her music was. My only regret was that her music is not also available on a recorded CD. I would have loved to have given a copy to all the guests so they can enjoy her beautiful music forever….perhaps one day. Thanks you Jennifer and continued success.
As a guest at a wedding four years ago, I had an absolute blast listening and grooving to the best music I had ever heard played by a live musician at a ceremony & cocktail hour. That musician was Jennifer, the beautiful face of Spags Music. I got a card from her that night and hid it safely in a file cabinet at home. When I got engaged in the spring of 2013, one of the first things I did in the beginning of wedding planning stages was contact Jennifer. I knew without a doubt that I wanted her to be the musician as I walked down the aisle and as my guests kicked off the party during cocktail hour. Jennifer is a fabulous communicator who is clear about her services and extremely knowledgeable about weddings and events. She was very attentive to the details I provided related to the wedding and took all of my requests with complete understanding.
The outcome of our wedding in terms of music was absolutely FABULOUS thanks to Spags The mix of modern and classic music that she played fit our guests flawlessly. Most brides and grooms go through their wedding without remember most of the details because of all the craziness, but my husband and I remember the music undoubtedly. Every song we recognized and loved. Within the two weeks after the wedding, we received over a dozen compliments on Jennifer’s music and we are so grateful for her services. She was worth every penny and I’ll be referring her to friends and family in the future…especially since so many guests requested her contact information!
“I don’t know what you paid for the violinist, but I can tell you it wasn’t enough” said my husband’s father during our cocktail reception. Spags rocked our wedding! Everyone wanted to know who she was and where we got her. She is gorgeous, personable, professional, talented and so reasonably priced. Spags performed during our ceremony, strolled around performing as our guests sipped sangria at the cocktail reception, and would jump in during songs throughout the reception. Her style is so unique. She can play popular/contemporary music in such a way that it is pleasant to every generation. My grandma was swaying back and forth to Jay Z, and loving every minute of it. The DJ with Spags Music was also amazing. He played great music, and he kept the party moving. My husband and I are deeply opposed to cheesy wedding DJs, and we were so happy that there was none of that with Spags Music. Just great music, a lot of fun, and a unique vibe that our guests were in awe of. I absolutely recommend Spags Music… And so do the guests at my wedding who are still taking about how amazing our music was!
The event I hosted was for our company holiday party in 2013 in which I bought out a 3-level venue in Gaslamp, San Diego. The theme for the event was “Hollywood for the Holidays” and while I had a DJ for the first 2-levels, I brought in Spags for the rooftop entertainment. This allowed me to provide an entirely different event experience for our wide guest demographic (over 600 guests overall). Needless to say, the majority of the guests couldn’t stay away from the rooftop. Spags was an absolute HIT and like no other type of entertainer I’ve hired. Her personal appearance is top-notch, her ability to interact with guests and get them engaged is brilliant, her talent is unique and off the charts… overall, she floored my guests! I will be bringing her back for events and highly recommend her if you are looking to ‘WOW’ your guests!
Spags performed for us during the pre-ceremony, ceremony, and I believe cocktail hour. She was amazing! My husband and I are big gamers and she incorporated a bunch of fantasy movie/video game themes that we requested. We loved her. My guests loved her and still talk about it today (more than a year after the wedding).
Jennifer is AMAZING!!! she went above and beyond and far exceeded all of our expectations. She is a true professional and just a great person to be around. I am very thankful and feel honored to have had her provide the entertainment for my wedding. She made an amazing night that much better.
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!!
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!
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!

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.
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.
My wedding party teared up when Jennifer began to play at the rehearsal. During the ceremony, her electric violin elicited incredibly beautiful music, heightening the moment, elevating our ceremony to a new level of loving emotion. Thanks to Jennifer my memory of our ceremony is rife with resplendent beauty. It was undoubtedly the perfect touch.
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 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!
My spouse and I had once seen an electric violinist at an event in Chicago, and she made quite an impression. Her performance was so unique and fun, that when planning our wedding, we decided to book one. A quick internet search turned up Spags, and a lot of very positive reviews. We felt like we were rolling the dice a little in such a break with “traditional” wedding music, but we watched a LOT (all?) of her online videos, and the feedback from her prior clients was too good to pass up. All I can say is that WE MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE! Our guests were, simply put, blown away. I think she made it into almost as many pictures on Facebook/Instagram as we did! People absolutely LOVED her, and were still raving about her weeks later. She looked beautiful on the wedding day, her dress matched our wedding colors and theme, and she did a perfect job of being a FABULOUS performer without “stealing” attention from the event. She strolled around the cocktail hour and dinner, and absolutely stunned our guests. The DJ portion went wonderfully too – our guests were packing the dance floor from the first song to the very last. I am still shocked at how VERY affordable her services are, and would absolutely 100% book her for another wedding or event in the future!
Hi! I can’t express enough how amazing and talented Spags is, she is a spectacular performer in person. My husband and I hired her for our March 2015 wedding at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas in Palm Springs. I contacted Spags a few weeks after I got engaged; she was actually the first vendor we booked! I saw Spags perform at a small wedding convention in San Diego 3 years ago and I told myself, “she is going to be at my wedding when I get married!” and I made it happened. It was the best money spent out of everything at our wedding. The entire guest list absolutely loved her, she wow-ed everyone…beyond words. Spags was very flexible and responded to all of my questions very quickly. She is so easy-going, down to earth and I trusted her completely. I would recommend hiring Spags for any occasion you are having. SHE IS THE DEFINITION OF PERFECTION!
We hired Spags to play our ceremony and cocktail hour music. She was absolutely fabulous! All of our guest loved her unique style and sound. Everyone told us that she set the tone for the entire night. We even gave her contact info to a number of guests that want to have her at their own events in the future. We highly recommend that you hire Spags for your wedding/event if you are looking for that wow factor that will take the party to the next level!
My wife and I found out about Spags from my co-worker who hired her for their wedding. Our wedding wa
s in the Central Valley (which is 200 plus miles from San Francisco and Los Angeles), so we were concerned with the distance and how it would affect the pricing. The price quote for Spags was very affordable and we were very pleased! For the music selections, Spags was very diverse with the types of music she could perform. She sent us a list of songs to choose from and to our surprise, Spags knew a lot of our favorite songs! Spags performed for 2 hours (Cocktail Hour, Dinner and First Dance) and our guests couldn’t stop talking about her! Spags is very interactive with the guests and keeps it entertaining. I would highly recommend Spags for any wedding or special event for all walks of life.
Spags was the perfect addition to our beautiful wedding. I loved every minute that she played for us and no one wanted her to stop. Everyone was so impressed with the quality of work and unique touch of Jennifer’s style. I will follow her work for years to come and am so grateful and blessed to have the memory of having her with us on our wedding day. Thank you so much Jenn!
Looking back, hiring Spags to perform at my destination wedding at the Farm at Old Edwards Inn and Spa was the best decision I could have made; she was the ultimate addition to an unforgettable night!
I was researching various wedding performers on YouTube when I can across a clip of Spags playing with a DJ at a fashion show, and from that moment on I knew that she was just what I wanted to help spice up my reception. Little did I know, she would be able to do so much more and would become one of the focal points of the wedding. She started the evening by playing a mix of classical music (that I had hand selected) while my guests were arriving, the processional, and my wedding march. Next she swiftly relocated to our cocktail hour spot where she performed along to the instrumental versions of my favorite pop songs while strolling through the crowd (in the grass, in heels – incredible!). At this point our guests were already wowed, and with her upbeat music everyone was ready to start the party by the time our doors opened for the reception. Later in the evening Spags returned to do impromptu sets with the DJ, and percussionist playing right in the middle of our dance floor. Spags was highly professional and easy to work with, going above and beyond to coordinate with the other musician and DJ prior to the event. We feel so lucky that she was able to make the cross country trip from L.A. to Highlands, NC, and would hire her again in a heartbeat!
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.
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!!
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!
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.
Wow!!! What an incredible performance! Jennifer played the electric violin at our daughter’s wedding ceremony and cocktail reception– everyone has commented on how amazing she was! Thanks!!!
We booked Spags to play at our wedding ceremony and reception. Her ability to play different kinds of music and DJ at the reception made it really easy on us because we needed to only book one person to coordinate music for our entire wedding. Spags brings a unique presence in that she plays an electric violin while she walks around which engages all of the guests. Spags offers a wide variety of music and plays it beautifully. Our guests were mesmerized by her performance and highly raved about throughout the entire event. During the reception Spags had a partner helping her DJ the music. They brought so much energy and had such a great music selection that our guests of all ages danced from the very first song to the very last song. We highly recommend Spags, she was a big part of why our wedding was such a huge success!
I wanted to surprise my fiance with a song at our wedding which Spags was already booked to perform. I reached out to Spags (in secret so that my fiance would not find out) and requested her accompaniment during my surprise performance. I also asked if we could perhaps meet up for some practice. I was certainly ready to pay any additional fees that would be required for her time (completely understandable and expected from a vendor), but Spags didn’t even bother with that. Instead she opened up her schedule and her studio for FREE and practiced with me for a few days prior to the wedding so that I could be ready. She even recorded a practice track for me so that I could practice on my own. Spags was a huge part of our once-in-a-lifetime event and her incredible talent and passion for her craft are a rare find. Cannot thank her enough. Highly highly recommended!
We hired Spags for our destination wedding in Mexico and couldn’t be more happy with her performance. She charmed the guests while they entered the ceremony, played through our ceremony and cocktail hour, and then finished the evening with some fabulous sets on the dance floor. Spags was so easy to work with and offered great advice and input along the way. I was nervous to pair her with a local DJ, but she made sure to connect with him and iron out all of the details in advance. Her book of music is extensive and she adds such a unique and unexpected touch to every event.
Spags was great from day one. She always responded to emails within a day, was in contact with my coordinators as well as the on site coordinator, and was very flexible when it came to working within the constraints of my venue, etc. And that was all before I heard the music! I got so many compliments from friends and family. A great addition to my big day.
Hiring Spags was one of the best decisions I made during wedding planning. Out of all our vendors she was the easiest to deal with; she always had quick and helpful responses. Our DJ even remarked that she was a pleasure to work with. And she is extremely talented. Her performance at the ceremony and during the dinner hour were incredible. Our friends and family wouldn’t stop talking about her and about how unique our wedding was because we had her there.
If I could give Jennifer a 10 it wouldn’t be enough..she is lovely and so talented. Her music is mesmerizing and we wanted her to play forever. I was excited to meet her after viewing her online videos but she far surpassed our expectations as a performer. She is exceptional and helped make my daughter’s wedding perfect. Thanks Jennifer!
Search no further. If you want an approachable, professional, expert, edgy, yet classy performer, hire “Spags”. My husband and I got married in June in San Diego and after searching and contacting at least 4 other violinists (there are only a handful in Southern CA who play contemporary music), going with Spags was a no-brainer. Although we were only a couple of months away from our special day, we sent her an email and she replied the next day. This already said a lot to us as it showed that she takes every inquiry seriously, even though she’s very popular and performs in various types of events. We then spoke to her over the phone as we had some questions and it felt as if we had known her for a long time. She’s truly down-to-earth even though she’s renown in her field (with reason :).
And that was only the beginning. She provides you with a large music selection and is also flexible: you can request for her to play a specific song as long as it’s done in advance. Last but not least, she’s not only a violinist- she’s a true performer. She plays with such emotion and somehow interacts with the crowd at the same time; our guests kept commenting on how amazing and graceful she was and continue to do so up until this day.
We can’t thank Spags enough for making our cocktail hour so enjoyable and trendy. Jennifer- you created a whole new style of entertainment. You’re the greatest! Thank you for impressing us with your amazing talent and making all our guests so happy! With love, Barbs and Jerome.
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!
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 is AMAZING! We are very happy we had the opportunity to have her on our special day. She can play anything you want and she knows how to do it well!. I LOVE her.
All I can say is that Spags is absolutely amazing! Everyone at my wedding kept complimenting her no matter if they were 12 or 85! She really made the night!
Spags talent and music is off that charts! I have had so many attendees of my wedding alreasy ask me about her, who she is and comment about how awesome her music was!
Hands down Spags is the best and most professional in the industry. Her personal touch, beauty inside and out makes her special and something not only you and your husband will respect but your guest will be floored. She’s absolutely the perfect touch for your special day. I feel Spags brings a hint of something unique no one will be expecting. I’ve received hundreds of compliments about our violinist and it’s thanks to Jennifer’s professionalism and class that brings her above the rest. Don’t cut her she either… she’s more than just a wedding violinist, she’s a creative performer, fashionista, and just fabulous at corporate events too (speaking from experience) I will forever remember Jennifer and what she did for our wedding and will continue to look forward to future events and opportunities too. If you’re looking for the best, you’ve found her- trust me!!!
Jennifer performed at my wedding in July 2014 and she played during our ceremony and for an hour during the reception. From the first time I emailed Jennifer, she was professional, flexible, and joyful to speak with. We absolutely LOVED hearing her music during the ceremony and reception and our guests were enthralled with her. I had several guests demand to know how I found her, a few even asked if she had a CD available they could buy!
With regards to pre-planning prior to our wedding, Jennifer was flexible and extremely responsive. She responded to my emails within 1-2 days and even sent me clips of her playing certain songs so that I could better choose between them. She goes over types of music you want played and any specific songs you want her to play. So if you are looking for a professional, fun, responsive, and talented electric violinist play for any event, look no further. Jennifer delivers and creates the perfect ambiance for guests. Words cannot express just how very thankful my husband and I are for Jennifer’s presence and talent during our wedding.
I cannot recommend Spags enough as a musician for your wedding!!! Every single one of our guests came up to us and told us how incredible and unique she was – she’s 100% the secret weapon to having a phenomenal and memorable wedding. Not only is she incredibly talented, but also has a stage presence that is noticed and appreciated, but also not large enough to detract from the event which gives her a great balance. She played everything we were looking for in terms of old and new music and even incorporated herself in songs we used that aren’t widely played for weddings. This was the very best thing we could have done for our big day and made it so special
I found Jennifer four days before our wedding.
We planned our wedding around the availability one very talented and professional DJ/emcee/electrical violinist. Unfortunately, he had an accident four days before our wedding leaving him unable to play the violin.
I thought for sure with only a few days until the wedding I would be hard pressed to find a replacement. Spags however, returned my panicked call within a few hours and told me not to worry that she would be at the wedding and reassured me that everything would be fine. She was right. Everything was perfect. Spags far exceeded my expectations. She is professional, talented, beautiful and a true entertainer. Everyone commented that she was their favorite part of our reception.
I highly recommend Spags. I am confident that she would be an excellent choice for any event. Our wedding was a mixed demographic and both the old and young appreciated her performance. We planned our wedding on a modest budget. We decided to forgo a lot of extras. The live entertainment portion was most important to us. It proved to be amazing and added elegance to our wedding.
I have nothing but exceptional things to say about Spags and plan to use her again.
Highly recommended! Very professional and I received good reviews from my guests as well.
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.

Love her!! Spags is amazing! We are so so happy We chose her as our DJ/violinist for our San Diego wedding! Spags created a lasting memory amongst ourselves & all of our wedding guests that will be talked about for years to come. She is so talented on the electric violin playing anything from Frank Sinatra to Snoop Dog. We loved her professionalism, easy to talk to attitude and energy. Spags also gave us really good advice on music selection based on her experiences which really paid off….Our parents danced until midnight with us!! Pre- ceremony music, cocktail hour, and reception music is what we booked Spags for and every penny was worth it. Our favorite part was Spags jam session with her co- partner MC, Carlos, mid way thru the reception picking up the energy after cake eating. I highly recommend Spags Music … You won’t be sorry!!
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!

My wife and I first met Spags at a friends wedding where she was performing. We happened to have just gotten engaged the week before, so we just knew right away we too HAD to have Spags perform at our wedding! She was very easy to work with and helped coordinate all the details with our DJ and Wedding Planner. What made it extra special for us was Spags was a surprise for my wife, she started to play as we exited the altar. I highly recommend her, she brings such a unique flare to ANY wedding – the guests could not stop talking about her performance! Thanks again, Spags!
We hired Jennifer (Spags) to perform our ceremony music & play the duration of the cocktail hour. She was so worth it. I enjoyed watching her at a friends wedding and from that moment I was hooked! For our wedding, being the bride, I didn’t get to enjoy her performances so much since I was being pulled here & there & everywhere. But from what I heard from our guests… she had a dance party going on on one end of the corridor & even took some song requests. I wish more guests took video of her so i could see what songs she performed, the dancing & etc. She was so sweet to even run up to us before we did our main entrance to say congrats & everything. That was the only time we got to see her. I hope she’s at the next wedding I attend… so i can enjoy just listening to her. Book her… you won’t regret it.
Jennifer was absolutely AMAZING for our July 4th wedding!. From day one she was professional, very laid back and easy to work with. She performed during our ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner reception. She was the highlight of our wedding and people are still raving about her. Anything and everything she played was a hit! I would hire her again in a second. HIGHLY RECOMMEND SPAGS! Thank you so much Jennifer, you were a pleasure to work with.
WOW!!!!!! Amazing! Perfection! Awesome!!! Not enough words to describe! Jennifer is truly talented and very professional and sweet!! She rocked our wedding! All of our guests are still talking about it! Thank you Jennifer for such an awesome time! Truly memorable!!
I am an event planner, and hired Jennifer for my clients wedding on April 5th. She was outstanding!! She is incredibly talented. Jennifer is also flexible and easy to work with. I can’t wait to use her again.
We found Jennifer through a simple Google search and we are so glad that we did. From the moment that we spoke with Jennifer on the phone, we knew that we had found the perfect artist for our ceremony. A few weeks later, we met in person. Jennifer really listened to our ideas and provided some great input.
We used Jennifer for both our ceremony as well as our cocktail reception.
That day was magical and Jennifer was a huge part of it. We had so many friends and family compliment Jennifer and what a great job she did. We would HIGHLY recommend Jennifer Spingola to anyone who is looking for a truly spectacular musician!
Jennifer was amazing at our wedding, from playing at the church to starting the celebration with her jamming hip hop hits on her violin during our cocktail hour. All of our guest loved her performance and the energy that she brought just added to it.
I highly recommend Jennifer for your wedding I promise she will make your wedding even more special, I know she did for us.
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.
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 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.
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!
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!
Felt like I was working w/ a longtime family friend!
Throughout my entire experience with Spags, I truly felt like I was working with a longtime family friend. Beyond being ultimately professional, Spags was an absolute joy to work with. Always friendly and upbeat, ever enthusiastic about my special day, and extremely responsive. One thing that really stood out to me was her willingness to work WITH me in regards to lodging and transportation. She truly wanted to make things as easy as possible on me when it came to facilitating her stay and transportation. That was a huge help considering I was up to my eyeballs in wedding planning. Getting a little extra “help” is always a welcomed plus!
During the wedding, Spags literally floated like a butterfly throughout the venue; engaging guests during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. And she can play ANYTHING on that violin. From sweet, classical melodies, to some “gangster” beats. Haha. She had all of our guests completely entranced. Countless guests asked me where I found her, told me how amazing she was, and how she added just the right flair to the wedding. No lie, to this day, guests are still talking about her performance (my wedding was in December of ‘19).
All in all, I truly believe it was Spags genuine good heart and pure energy that made her presence and performance so special. You can FEEL through her music how much she loves what she does. That absolutely makes all the difference. She treated everyone like family and I appreciated that SO much. We hope to have her at a future vow renewal reception / ceremony!
Thank you for being wonderful, personable, sweet, caring, professional, and beyond, Spags! We are still in awe of your good heart and performance that night. Thank you a million times over!
