What our past clients say
Jason R.Wedgewood Aliso Viejo, CA
Excellent harpist!My wife and I are so happy that we chose Jackie, the harpist, to play the cocktail hour at our wedding. She is incredibly talented, with a very large musical repertoire, and added so much elegance to our event. I also happen to be a professional musician, with very high standards for music. Margie, the owner, was such a pleasure to work with as well. Trust me, they are the best!
Jason T.Santa Monica, CA
Jackie was amazing! Thank you so much! Her rendition of Halo was stupendous! She's a real trooper... pushing her harp up a hill without assistance was amazing! She really feels the crowd and she knows her stuff!
The Ocdamia Strings company is hands down the best!! My guest were super impressed with their performances. Margie the manager is excellent when it comes to communication and making sure everything goes well. The group showed up on time and were very professional. I was also impressed by the song list that they have, they can cover just about anything. I'm very grateful to have had them at my wedding and like forward to seeing them again!!!
