About


The Velvetines is composed of Emily on vocals and piano and Jaz on electric bass, saxophone, double bass and backing tracks. Emily has been playing the piano and singing since the age of 7 and her vocal tones are reminiscent of the likes of Nora Jones. 

The Velvetines are incredibly versatile, suiting both a lounge environment and late night party setting, they like to use backing tracks for the more upbeat songs to create a fuller sound, which helps get people on the dance floor and keep them there. Emily and Jaz’s chemistry, synchronicity and incredibly professional and friendly personalities will win you and all of your guests round from the first song.

They are extremely well-trained musicians and have a wealth of experience gigging across London and the UK in very successful and established function bands. Collectively Emily and Jaz have performed at Hampton Court, the Royal Festival Hall, St Albans Abbey, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, Ronnie Scott’s, Oliver’s Jazz Bar, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Duke, The Crown, and The Troy Bar; toured the UK and Sri Lanka; and have been taught by musicians and organisations such as the Julian Joseph Jazz Academy, Julian Crampton (Incognito), Laurence Cottle, Dave Swift (Jools Holland), The Royal Academy Of Music, Gareth Lockrane, The National Youth Jazz Orchestra, Berklee College of Music and Simon Purcell.

The Velvetines play classic pop, soul, lounge and jazz songs from artists such as Clean Bandit, Stevie Wonder, and The Beatles. The duo has a repertoire of over 250 songs covering the 1950s to the current top 40.

Event: Wedding
Location: Hampshire
5/5

What a performance! We are so pleased that we chose your services for our wedding reception. The Velvetines are by far the best live party duo we have seen. They were amazing! From learning our first dance song and singing it beautifully, to performing Mr Brightside twice (it’s one of my favourites), and then allowing Molly to perform 'Valerie’ with The Velvetines, the evening was perfect. We would like to sincerely thank you for all the effort you and the duo put into making the wedding reception a memorable event. Your friendliness, professionalism and assistance in working around our busy schedule so that The Velvetines sound checked early surpassed our expectation and we will definitely recommend you.
