The Velvets usually play a two and half hour set, with a 15 min break in the middle. This will often coincide with evening supper at the Venue. Our drinks reception Trio plays for 2 hours.
We always keep our music at a level that can be enjoyed by all, even in more intimate venues, your guests will not be forced out of the room by volume.
We have our own top quality sound and lighting equipment, all we need at the venue is a power socket!
