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.

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.
- 2 x 15 / 20min sets of ’supremely entertaining' songs.
Can do a sit-down show of an hour, but this is not background music.
