Southern California Harpist


REVIEWS


VeeRonna is an extremely talented and professional musician. Here at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, we hold our entertainers to the same 5 diamond standards that are expected of us as employees, and VeeRonna exceeds our expectations every time. VeeRonna is wonderful for corporate groups, weddings, or whatever occasion you’re looking for. She can customize the music to your client’s needs by utilizing either her electric harp or traditional concert grand harp – or a combination of both! VeeRonna has been doing this for years, understands the industry and makes my job easy, so we love working with her.”

VeeRonna is incredible! From the very beginning, she was professional and prompt with all communication. When we met her in person, she was extremely friendly and helpful with our questions. Her website made it easy and fun to select our music choices and get a preview of her extraordinary talent. She played at our ceremony and cocktail hour, and our guests are still commenting on how beautiful the music was, and how unique our song choices were, as she is able to play many genres of music on the harp. She worked with our Officiant, so our ceremony music timing was flawless. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a dependable, honest and talented harpist with a great personality and ability to impress audiences. She was one of the vendors who went above and beyond our expectations, and we would not have had our romantic dream wedding without her!

Dear VeeRonna,

Thank you for everything you did last night to make our party even more special! I’m so grateful that I found you through the Ritz Carlton. You were exactly what Doug, our director, had in mind for beautiful holiday music as a backdrop for the evening. You are very professional (early arrival, quick set up, lovely attire and presentation!)–it is such a joy to work with someone like you. Obviously, I would be more than happy to be a personal reference for you. Happy holidays and best wishes,

VeeRonna added such an elegant touch to our wedding. She was incredibly easy to work with (I didn’t have time to meet with her so I utilized her online consultation form, along with several emails). She played “Can’t help falling in love” as the processional and “Heart of Gold” as our recessional and everyone was incredibly impressed with her renditions. I highly recommend her if you want to add a little something special to your ceremony and cocktail hour.

Wow!! Thank you, thank you, thank you, you did an amazing job for us!!  Marci and Alex LOVED everything, as did all the parents.  And, Alex & Marci especially enjoyed coming to your home to work with you on their songs.  They said it was like having a private concert.  They couldn’t believe the amount of time you were willing to spend with them on their song selection but it really paid off.  You were a highlight of the evening for my son, Alex.  He has been a fan of yours since he first saw you last year playing at Silverleaf.  But, I should correct that and say we have all been fans of yours!

I can say that the ceremony music was flawless; beautiful, pastural, contemporary, and emotional.  And the cocktail hour rocked.  To my disappointment, I didn’t get to really listen to the electric hand-held harp, but I know that my guests did.  Everyone commented on how wonderful the cocktail hour was.  And to be quite honest with you, aside from the fabulous food, you were the focal point, so they could’ve ONLY been talking about you.  Thank you so much for so seamlessly transitioning from the ceremony to the cocktail hour and for clearly helping to orchestrate (pun intended)

Alex & Marci’s wedding into what can only be described as an astounding event.  You are truly a stellar musician, and amazing artist who knows how to “work” an event and a crowd.

Thank you again for your professionalism and your expert musicianship.  We hope to see many more times at Silverleaf and at our own events!

Thank you so much for the magical music you provided on our most special day. You were a delight to work with and made us both feel special. I look forward to working with you on other special days!

VeeRonna is amazing! She is a very talented artist and also a terrific person. She is easy to work with, the quality of her work is outstanding, and her professionalism is uncanny. She recently played at a VIP dinner with our board members (presidents and CEO’s of Fortune 100 companies) and they ranted and raved at the variety of music and how much they enjoyed her. I highly recommend her for any event and look forward to using her at all of my upcoming events!

It was a pleasure working with VeeRonna. She has an incredible talent and her music is angelic. Mike and I are very passionate about music and wanted the ceremony music to reflect “us”. We had a list of songs for VeeRonna when we first met her. Everything from favorite musicals, favorite movie music, favorite Disney songs to even Van Halen. What I really enjoyed most while working with VeeRonna is that she didn’t shy away from songs that she wasn’t familiar with. If she didn’t know a certain song, she looked up the notes and played the song for us to hear. It was great as some of our guests were singing the words to the music during the ceremony.

Holly and Mike – April 2011


“Everyone loved VeeRonna and her band! They performed in February as part of our monthly Evening of Music series, and attracted our biggest crowd of the year. Their show was very fun, and we especially liked the audience interaction and how they just drew everyone in. VeeRonna was very professional and communicative during the planning process and even visited the site the day before the event. We hope to schedule VeeRonna again for another event sometime soon! ”

VeeRonna delivered a sense of excitement and high energy to our special events. She engages her audience and brings a musical element that is completely unexpected and extremely fun. She beams with exuberance and makes any event absolutely outstanding and beyond expectations.

Dara – Silverleaf 2012


VeeRonna’s musical style and performance takes an event to a whole new level that simply can not be achieved by any other musician.

Susie Hardy – Canta  Mia 2012


VeeRonna was outstanding!! She had me over to her beautiful home and played music for me for about an hour. She was patient while I cried during many of her songs because everyone was so touching. The ceremony couldn’t have gone better. She was perfect and I can’t wait to have her play for us again at our next big event!

Angela – October 2012


I thought I had heard it all, but VeeRonna gives new meaning to the word brilliant. She is technically perfect,    thus allowing her artistry and spirit to manifest. That is what is so transporting.

VeeRonna, It was such a pleasure to meet you. Your music during the ceremony and cocktail hour made the wedding so elegant. Even though I was busy greeting people, I heard you playing all the selections I had requested. I think my son and daughter-in-law chose the hottest day of the year to marry but, your beautiful harp gave the event a light and cool feeling. Thank you for adding such a beautiful touch to their wedding. We appreciate you and your great talent.

Kelly English – 2011


VeeRonna, I cannot begin to tell you how many people commented on the music played during the ceremony and cocktail hour. Having you play lightly during the actual ceremony itself received the most positive feedback from people too. You don’t see mnay weddings where that takes place. People were so impressed with the variety of music you played too. Everything from Little Mermais’s “Under the Sea” to Led Zepplin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” It was perfect and exceptionally classy! Thank you so very much for being part of Laura and Tim’s day.

Patty Szots – December 2007


VeeRonna Ragone is an amazing harpist. Her talent brings a special ambiance to any event. However, she does not just “play” at an event. She really takes the time to work with the client to customize their musical preferences. From the perspective of a wedding and event planner, I know if we book VeeRonna that she will not only provide beautiful music but she will show up early and be organized. This makes my job easier and I know the clients will always have their expectations surpassed.
