We have talented solo musicians (violin, cello, piano, harp, guitar, saxophone & flute), classical groups, live bands, and emcees/DJs with positive attitudes and strong work ethics devoted to making each event a successful one. 

We promote equal opportunities, regardless of gender, age, or ethnicity in recruiting musicians and accepting clients. We are a proud supporter of the LGBT community. We take pride in ensuring customer satisfaction and are well-recommended by our clients and partner vendors. Our company is a leading music provider in Southern California.

The Story Behind Our Story

The music industry has become saturated that many of highly skilled musicians rarely get an opportunity to share their talent. This observation led husband and wife, Arthur and Margie Ocdamia to create OMG! Ocdamia Music Group, LLC.

 

In 2008, Margie was working full-time and studying at the same time. In 2009, they were blessed to have a son. Their son was born severely premature, requires full medical attention and personal care. They were challenged on how they are going to take care of their newborn son, and at the same time, manage the business.

 

Since 2009, Arthur has been playing every weekend to wedding gigs, corporate functions, and other special events while he takes care of their son during the weekdays. On the other hand, Margie continues to go to school full time on weekdays, takes care of their son during weekends, and handling bookings for the group.

We are highly rated and are on the preferred vendor lists of dozens of the best venues in Southern California. Booking us gets you a group of highly educated musicians from such prestigious Universities such as UC Berkeley, California Institute of the Arts, University of the Philippines, Odessa State Academy, Andrews University and Western Michigan University. 

We have been providing live music and entertainment for weddings in Southern California for over 10 years. We offer specialty live music for  ceremony, cocktail hour, and wedding reception.

We are the company of choice when it comes to live music and entertainment for Corporate Events in Southern California. We provide concert grade performances that your guests will never forget.
