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

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: "If you're looking for a band who will transform a tent full of people having quiet drinks into a raging fury of dance laughter merriment and general good times then BLAG are the act you're looking for. We booked them for a green and event to raise money to fight greenbelt destruction nearby and they instantly communicated with everybody In the room (which ranged from early 20s to late 50s and 60s) the minute they started playing. A great repertoire of traditional favourites and interesting covers especially the doors' ""people are strange"" They're compact yet sound huge- and the great calling instructions had everybody laughing and smiling no matter how awful they were at dancing the Gay Gordon!. Sometimes this kind of ceilidh can be slow and boring when everybody doesn't really know what to do but the band made it all happen very quickly and very enjoyably . Did I mention they're nice guys as well?"

Recent review: "The Black Velvet Dance Band were very good musicians, but there was only two of them who turned up and I was led to believe there would be three ? So it was more of a ""duo"". I was told to expect them at 6:30pm to set up and play background music but they were late and we all got a bit concerned, including the caller. Their own sound system was okay but I think it was a combination of really bad acoustics the sports hall makes as well with a lot of echoing. The lady caller was nice enough but she looked a bit tense and I wasn't sure if she actually enjoyed herself ! Fortunately, those attending the event seemed to enjoy themselves and it's always great to see people from young boys to grandparents getting up and having a dance. Considering the band cost £500 in total, I don't think I will be doing it this way again and would rather find out more about a band through word of mouth."

Recent review: Thank you so much to the The blackmarcs for helping make our wedding day so special. They were so amazing, so polite and two of the nicest people we've ever met. In the build up to the wedding they were so great and easy to contact, really easy to work with and didn't mind all our questions or random music choices. The were even better live than we could have imagined and really got the crowd going. Personally, the best part was that they learnt our first dance song (Hooked on a Feeling) and in our opinion sang it better than the original! To have a band happily learn a song for you is so special and we can't thank you both enough. Thank you so much for helping give us our dream wedding and lots of crazy dancing memories that will last a lifetime.
