Blue Velvet Unplugged

Return to Previous Page

The professional musicians from Blue Velvet Unplugged present a versatile mix of Folky Pop, Country, Folk and Swing Jazz. It’s the perfect combination for a small family party or drinks reception.

“Blue Velvet will guide you on a whistle-stop tour through an entire century of popular music!”

Reflecting their eclectic musical tastes, Blue Velvet can draw on a massive repertoire from different genres and styles of popular music, and know just how to provide a suitable mixture of songs and tunes for any age-group. Professional musicians with two decades of experience, they can pretty much perform it all – the repertoire ranges from Swing Jazz and Dance Classics to Rock‘n’Roll, Traditional Celtic, American Country, Rockabilly and Pop.

For large celebrations, a versatile accordionist can be included to complete the four-piece line-up, but for smaller events, the guitar/vocals, double bass and violin trio provides an intimate unplugged atmosphere. Whatever the line-up, Blue Velvet will have you tapping your toes and then heading for that dancefloor before you know it!

With a high-quality PA system to suit venues and audiences of any size, Blue Velvet can tailor a unique set-list to match your event.

    Please pass on my huge thanks to Blue Velvet for their sterling work on Saturday 28th April 2012 at Dad’s 80th birthday party- they were an important part of the Afternoon Tea ambience I wanted. The music was spot on and their flexibility and adaptability to go with the flow of the party was excellent. Mike was very helpful in guiding the room at each stage … The guests all commented on the band and said how much they enjoyed their playing and more importantly, Dad was also delighted with the type and variety of music played.

  2. Jim & Jane White

    From Swing Jazz to Rock ‘n’ Roll! What great music!

  3. Jo Woodhouse

    It all went well and we all enjoyed the band – a bit different and very lively, good to watch etc. A lot of people got up to dance so always a good sign!
