Stunning music, flawless vocals and incredible playing - couldn't take my eyes off them! Karen, Private Event, London

The very spirit of the Golden Age of Jazz is brought back to life through tunes and costumes celebrating all Jazz from the Roaring 20s to the Post WWII with manouche influences; blues contaminations and nods to the Italian and Mediterranean melodies for an engaging and enthralling show.

From wedding receptions to corporate events, The Velvet Tones are the best choice for an event requiring Impeccable and elegant music.

With over 15 years of experience behind them, this group of adaptable, fun-loving musicians delivers the popular songs of the 1920/40s by the maestros Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, together with modern-day chart-toppers such as “All About The Bass” , “Valerie” and many more.

Adapting seamlessly from 'background music’ to ‘music for dancing’, The Velvet Tones are the best choice for your event!
