Unlikely love-children of the Footlights and college choirs, this classically-trained duo write and perform ‘face-achingly funny' songs, backed by sizzling jazz piano. Troubadours for the Twitter age, they have featured several times on BBC Radio - and were selected for BBC Radio 4 Extra Comedy Club’s Pick of The Year.
From Berkeley Square to Barbados, Piccadilly to Portofino, they are fast becoming the toast of the most marvellous parties around the world.
"Wonderful...marvellous...excellent" - Stephen Fry on The Velvet Penguins
First Set (15 minutes, pre-pudding)
Second Set (15 minutes, post-pudding)
Thank you for Saturday... Everyone thought you were fabulous!
The Velvet Penguins were great fun - very talented and extremely nice. They were a great addition to our party.
The Velvet Penguins are superb musicians and entertaining performers. Their voices blend seamlessly together, enabling them to cover any track with ease. Their natural rapport, both with each other and their audience, is hugely endearing. Their real talent lies in their gently satirical re-writing of lyrics to well-known songs. These pieces showcase their style – a harmonious blend of intelligent wit and innate musicality, performed with elegance and irreverence. This combination makes them a fantastic addition to any party. They are talented, charming and reliable – I would highly recommend them.
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
Do you offer extras such as DJ service, extra musicians etc?
As standard we offer a keyboardist. For an additional £750 we offer a double bassist and drummer for our 'trio' option.
Do you have your own PA and sound equipment?
From experience, it works best if you arrange for a sound technician to provide a piano/keyboard, 2 microphones, and a ‘PA’ / amplification system, and to control the levels during the performance. For smaller venues/audiences, amplification might not be necessary- this can be discussed; however, we can provide at an additional cost if necessary.
