Jennifer Argenti is a true professional. She is the best violinist out there, bar none, AND she is so wonderful to be around, too. I hired Jennifer to play at an event attended by 300 people and she blew everyone away. All night I heard: "The violinist is amazing," and "That is the best violinist I have ever heard in my life." And she charmed everyone with her engaging smile and warm personality, too. I recommend Jennifer Argenti wholeheartedly, for any type of event. She will absolutely make your event the best it can be, the most memorable, the classiest, the most fabulous. I only wish I could have awarded more than 5 stars! Thank you, Jennifer! --Laura Roppe, The Laura Roppe Band, San Diego, CA

We look forward in working with her again.
Thank you --Dora Lambrecht, AICO Pico Rivera, CA
Just a note to tell you I enjoyed very much hearing you play. I always feel a sort of reverence to those who have mastered their instrument, as well as deliver a melody that would make its writer proud. Had I have been in attendance as a guest, instead of a DJ, I would have planted myself close to you.
Anyway, it was a good gig, with good food, music and wonderful people, all within a beautiful setting. I will look forward to opportunities to recommend you, and to perhaps cross your path again. --Kevin Lopez, DJ Los Angeles, CA

As a fellow musician, I cannot express how wonderful Jennifer was! I hired her for the Pre-Ceremony, Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, and Dinner Reception and couldn't have asked for anything more. I even asked her to stay longer than what I had contracted her for because I couldn't get enough! She plays everything from classical to hip hop! it was awesome!Sent on 08/29/2013

Jennifer was so sweet and easy to work with. She returned my calls promptly and showed up early (even though we were running late with photos.) The music was lovely and just what we needed for our outdoor ceremony.Sent on 03/20/2013
