Gina Corso, owner of Jersey Gina Entertainment, is an acoustic and electric violinist based out of Southern New Jersey, though she travels nationally. As a strolling violinist at weddings, Gina's repertoire ranges from traditional acoustic selections to contemporary electric violin music. All performances are uniquely arranged based on specific client needs.
Gina explains, "My company is unique because of the delivery of services. Instead of sitting in a corner with a music stand and charts, I stand in a tasteful spot and material is memorized. For wedding ceremonies, I play while guests are being seated, in addition to the ceremony processional and recessional. Some ceremonies have a special symbolic moment (candle lighting, family blending, sand mixing, etc.) that I can also play during. Often times, these moments are customized with personal musical selections made by the bride and groom. All material is delivered with grace and elegance."
During cocktail hour, I stroll (as opposed to sitting with music and music stand) and deliver a tasteful mix of classical, pop, rock, and jazz, from Mozart, to the Beatles, to Adele, to Sam Smith. I keep the material current, edgy, and sophisticated. Another option for cocktail hour is to have an electric violin performance, which is played along with tracks. This has more of a NYC cocktail lounge vibe to it."
Audio and video samples are available at the official JG website on the Multimedia page. Jersey Gina Entertainment provides PA System, gear, and proper insurances for these performances.
