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

The Groovy Cats

The Groovy Cats Wedding Package - 2 x 45 Mins Set

Verified bookings: 22
Hi, Here’s how our wedding package works. - We’ll arrive at 6pm and will be set up and ready to perform by 7pm (early arrival is £100 per hour). - We play 2 x 45-minute sets. This works best after the first dance because everyone is on the dancefloor ready. - We can learn a first dance song or another favourite song for you (just give us plenty of notice!) - We’ll DJ for free in between and after our performance until midnight (it’s £150 per hour if you want us to stay later). - Although we do play over 100 songs, we don’t allow clients to choose the setlist. The reason for this is that we can keep 30-40 songs practiced to a performance standard. We believe it makes the performance much better. - We dress up in suits and waistcoats. If your wedding has a specific dress code, please give us plenty of notice. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Stevenson Covers - Solo Option - 2 x 45 Minutes

Verified bookings: 32
We go out as solo singers separately as well as together, with pretty much the same set lists, only difference is one live lead vocal and guitar, rather than two live lead vocals and keys. We use the same customised backing tracks and so, as a solo option it is much the same. We can both perform acoustic sets too. This includes dj service throughout the evening if required and two 45 min sets. Hope all makes sense, kind regards Mark

Recent review: We booked Anthony for our first crafting event at the Marriott Peterborough in November, after looking through options provided by various agents. What Anthony offered was just what we - and our delegates were after. Not only was he self-sufficient (along with Nicky), he also was able to be flexible with times - and managed to read the audience very well within minutes. In terms of the act - what a voice! An authentic example of the 'great American Songbook'. All in all - I would highly recommend Anthony for your event, if you want the evening to start and end with a swing..!

They were in touch with us at all the key points in the run up to the big day to find out our timings, requests and first dance song. On the night we couldn't have asked for a better band. The music was brilliant. Our guests loved them and they kept the party going til well past midnight. They had people who we never thought we'd see on a dancefloor up dancing the night away!

Recent review: Thank you so much for making our wedding the party of the year - everyone loved the music! Black Velvet Band played at our wedding reception and they were brilliant. I had worried whether people would want to dance to Irish music but I shouldn't have. Everyone loved the music! We had a real proper Irish Hooley, with lots of dancing, singing-along and some humour in-between. As this was a marriage of cultures (English, Irish and Dutch) we were also touched that the band played a couple of traditional Dutch songs, allowing the Dutch to have a good sing-along as well. And when my dad asked if they could accompany him for a song to sing after his speech, it was no problem. The guys in the band are proper musicians who can play what the crowd needs to keep the party fuelled. The only complaint I have had is from my knees - which are still complaining, even after 4 days rest! Next time, I will wear trainers.

Recent review: I contacted the Groovy Cats as we were interested in the band performing at our work's Christmas party. Once we were put in contact with the band, they were very responsive and more than willing to help with the 100's of questions I kept throwing in their direction. Although I did not attend the party, The Groovy Cats got numerous mentions and an outstanding amount of praise. We sent out an internal survey to get some feedback on the event and the music/band appeared countless times with many comments requesting The Groovy Cats for our next party. You really delivered beyond our expectations and I cannot thank you enough. Antonia
