Here are some recent reviews of the band's performance:- Here are some reviews of the band in action:- Black Velvet Folky Pop Duo – Wedding – April 6th, 2019 “A great bunch of lads who made our wedding reception swing. Their set was exactly what we wanted and set exactly the right atmosphere. They even let me take the mic for 2 songs. Which they probably regretted within seconds! A great choice for any kind of party.” Ben Hawkes Irish Night to celebrate St Patrick’s Day – Lawrence Weston Social Club – March 16th 2019 Well what can I say? Johnny and Jase are a great duo! They performed a super mix of Irish songs and tunes and had people up dancing all night. Would highly recommend. Karl Baxter Black Velvet Band Irish Duo – St Patrick’s Day at Westbury Conservative Club – March 17th 2019 What a great way to celebrate St Patrick’s day at our Cons club! The performance went amazingly well! The dance floor was full on a SUNDAY AFTERNOON?? I put that down to the guys who played songs and tunes with such an exciting beat that you just couldn’t stay still. The whole afternoon was huge fun. I highly recommend the band. Stephen Jones Hannah and Deryk’s Ceilidh – February 2019 We absolutely loved having Black Velvet Band play our wedding ceilidh at Clearwell Castle. My husband is from Scotland so we wanted a traditional Scottish ceilidh feel with some of the classics, and we were not disappointed! We had a good feeling about Black Velvet band from the moment we booked them – and sure enough, Mike and the guys were absolutely fantastic and made our evening party a huge success. The band were great and the instructions on the ceilidh dances were so helpful; even those of our party who may not have normally danced were up there loving life on the dancefloor. The fun and friendly atmosphere they created was just fab and so different from your ‘usual’ evening do. All our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the ceilidh and some said it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We would 100% book the band again and recommend them to friends. Thank you for contributing to the best day of both our lives. Hannah and Deryk Hunter Black Velvet Band Hoedown Duo – Wild West Garden Party – July 12th, 2018 “Mike and Jon pitched the performance perfectly for the Fleur de Lis Retirement Home’s garden party in Romsey. The American Country songs created just the right atmosphere to establish the Wild West theme. Everyone loved it – they joined in all the songs! Several residents have sent me messages to say how much they enjoyed the event. We were delighted with the performance and thoroughly recommend the band.” Rachael O'Keefe (Manager) Alice's Wild West Themed 60th Birthday Party – April 6th, 2018 "It was a superb C & W style party with fantastic musicians. Everyone - from kids to grannies - joined in the dancing and the whole event was great fun. If we have another party, we will definitely book Black Velvet Hoedown Band again. I have no hesitation in recommending them. It was an excellent bash." Darren Vine (Alice's husband) Paul’s 60th Birthday Hoedown Barn Dance – January 6th, 2018 " A big thanks to Mike and the rest of the band for a brilliant evening. Everyone has said how much they thoroughly enjoyed it. A special thank you to Alan, the dance caller. He did a great job – quite a comedian! Finally a big thanks to the band for welcoming our fiddle-playing friend Richard into their ranks for the evening. He said he had a fantastic time. What a great party band the guys make! I’m very happy to recommend them to anyone having a bash." Paul Campbell

Verified bookings: 6
The UK's finest ceilidh band available for weddings and private events. Breathtaking musical talent; clear, patient and cheerful dance calling; an excellent atmosphere full of energy; fifteen years' experience as a band, meaning we can always 'read the room' and make it work perfectly for you and your guests. We are always happy to fit in with your existing timings - we usually find that two 'sets' of dancing each lasting between 45 and 90 minutes will work well for any event, so we would usually play anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours in total. We will work with you to make the right plan for your event. Unlike many bands on the circuit we only use a small pool of very talented musicians, and only commit to bookings where we can guarantee you'll have 'the A team.'

We are a really experienced ceilidh / barn dance band and have played for a great many different events in a wonderful variety of venues. We pride ourselves, not only on the high quality of our music, but with our flexibility.

Our brilliant caller ensures everyone knows what to do with very clear instructions. We also play a great and varied mix of music between dance sets so there is never a dull moment. Our line up always includes our excellent caller plus melodeon (squeezebox), guitar & bass. We are often very lucky to have Wil join us on fiddle. He can’t always make it, but if he does, we don’t alter our charges. We’ll perform for (up to) 3 ½ hours (including breaks), and will arrive 45 minutes before the event to set up. We are certain that if you book us you’ll have a great time.
