About Amy | San Diego Strolling Violinist
Amy was born in Northern California and grew up in a musically talented household. She started learning at 3 years of age and has been playing the violin since 1991. Her studies consisted primarily of classical training with the Suzuki method and every summer, she didn’t miss an opportunity to attend fiddle and bluegrass camps.
Now based in Southern California, Amy believes a musician should never stop learning, and continues to study with other professionals and attends workshops. For fun, Amy loves salsa dancing, being active outdoors, spending free time by the ocean, hiking on a trail, and working out at the gym.
Amy plays a wide range of music for weddings and events with genres spanning classical, pop, fiddle tunes, contemporary, and improvisation. A highly energetic live violinist, she enjoys performing at weddings, corporate events, and private events.

FAQ, Booking and General Policy
The term strolling violinist is used to describe violinists who walk around and interact with the crowd while playing. Strolling violinists often incorporate a choreography while they play music. Our San Diego strolling violinist, Amy, is an energetic performer, bringing violin music to a whole new level.
Yes! In fact, Amy, our electric violinist based in San Diego, performs with a distinct style. She incorporates dancing while playing the violin, at the same time walking around and entertaining the crowd.
Electric violins can be as loud as you would like as long as it is connected to an amplifier. The sound coming from an electric violin can also be altered and modified to a certain style/effect. However, without an amplifier or when not connected to an external
output, it will be barely audible in a large room.
Our musicians, especially our violinist at weddings, bring their own audio equipment to weddings and events. This helps us set up more conveniently. We can also accommodate requests to bring lighting with a minimal fee.

Amy was absolutely wonderful! She was a joy and so easy to work with. Her positive energy shone through both in-person and through the computer screens for our remote Zoom audience–exactly what we were looking for. Veronica and I could not have been any happier with how the music/performance turned out. Thank you Margie and thank Amy from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day so memorable!
Amy thank you so much for everything you did at our wedding! You were the talk of the wedding. Everyone was raving about your show and the wonderful job you did. We are so thankful to have had you perform. You made our vision come to life and you played all the songs we asked for. We hope to see you perform again soon.

It would not have been the same without you! We are truly grateful for your amazing performance on our special day. We wanted to let you know how out of this world you were and talk of the night. We sincerely thank you for sharing with us the special moments of our reception day.. can’t wait to make more memories in the future. “
Amy was absolutely amazing in every facet when she performed at our Cocktail Hour. Our guests were raving to us about her. Her style was elegant and sophisticated. You could tell she cared deeply about the music and her performance as a whole. Instead of sitting in one corner, she moved around and interacted with the guest which took the energy in the room to the next level. Not only did she perform flawlessly, she went above and beyond and learned out favorite song in such a short amount of time and performed it. We cannot recommend her highly enough. She will take your wedding or event to another level.

Amy was phenomenal! Leading up to our wedding day, Amy was always easy to reach and she was willing to work with our budget. She went out of her way to accommodate each of our requests, including bringing an acoustic violin for our ceremony and fun, electric violin for our reception. She provided a special elegance as the bride walked down the aisle and really got the crowd going during the reception. We will definitely recommend her to our friends and family moving forward. Thanks again Amy!”

Amy was incredible to work with from start to finish. She did a terrific job performing at my wedding — truly exceeded my expectations. She’s kind, incredibly talented, and fun. I’m so grateful I hired Ocdamia Music Group to have Amy’s perform! Thank you Margie!
Amy, you were the highlight of the bridal shower. Every single guest, including myself were so impressed with your amazing talent. Thank you not only for sharing your beautiful talent, but for your professional. If you ever need a reference, I would be more than happy to let anyone know how amazing you are!
“We recently had “Pepper and Pocket” – electric violinist Amy and DJ Jenny – at our reception event and it was a blast! I knew when I saw their YouTube video that I HAD to book them, but I was worried how my relatively conservative attendees would react to it. Well, they loved it! Amy and Jenny read the room and worked it! I was not expecting Amy to actually “work the room”, but she did! She wandered around and was able to engage the attendees…it was a super nice touch. They made the event memorable and I would highly recommend them to anyone who wants something with a wow factor.
