FAQ, Booking and General Policy

A dancing violinist is a total performer who dances along to the music, sometimes with a set choreography, while playing the violin. It has been popular in recent years, ushering in a new style of violin performance. Our hip hop violinist in San Diego, Melissa, is a talented violinist and gifted dancer who can definitely wow a crowd!

A wedding reception playlist is equally important as the playlist for wedding ceremony. Once you book with OMG, you will have access to our portal where you can select songs for the wedding reception, or any part of the program. We also have our own go-to playlist at wedding receptions that we update constantly so you would not have to worry about planning your music.

Our SoCal dancing Violinist, Melissa, often uses an electric violin for her performances. Since she plays along to backing tracks, mixing the sound from her violin together with the track is easier. Also, violin music and backing tracks should match, and using an electric violin makes it is easier to modify the overall sound.

Yes! A violin can be played almost anywhere, as long as the conditions are dry. Violins and other wooden instruments are sensitive to moisture and water so it is important that they do not get wet. Given that, violin music is a great background music for a romantic beach setting.

Please Provide Shade/Umbrella

  • We require a shade/umbrella for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment. This is due to the extreme sensitivity of musical instruments to changes in temperature and exposure to sunlight and humidity. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments.

Please Prepare a Covered/Dry Location in Case of Rain

  • We require a covered/dry location for our musicians, instruments, and audio equipment in case of rain. Exposure to water or humidity is damaging to our musical instruments and audio equipment. In some cases exposure to elements may lead to irreparable damage to the instruments. 
 Please Provide Heater
  • We love playing outdoors but in lower temperatures please provide a heater for our musicians. Our musicians remain outdoors for more than an hour with an additional hour to set up before the appointment. The heater will keep them warm before and during their performance.

    I work in entertainment in the Private Event and Wedding industry. Our company VOX DJs personally works with Margie and OMG quite a bit. Her musicians are always professional and high quality. It was a no brainer to book one of her specialty musicians for me and my wife’s big day.

    We chose Melissa Barrison to play Electric Violin alongside one of our DJs. It’s been months and guests from our wedding still talk about how incredible Melissa was. It’s not just someone playing over the tracks, it’s an absolute experience. She turned it into a concert dancing alongside guests and absolutely shredding on the violin. There were faces melting all over.

    Trust Margie, she’ll get you set up with a perfect musician for any event.
