"Not long ago I had a chance to visit the Velvet Set Big Band at the Factory Theatre in Sydney. It was a phenomenal night with some amazing swing dancing going on and even more amazing costumes. I felt like I had gone back in time.. With the silky smooth vocals and a 19-piece band that kept your foot tapping the entire night, it was an ultimate experience that I would love to relive over and over again. This was one of the biggest shows the Velvet set had done, and it definitely was a success". Caroline Cordier
"Thanks for a great night last night. Your band has a great sound and really engaging stage prescence. These always add up to a most enjoyable night. Keep it up!" Martin Riley
Or would you prefer both Jazz and Swing?
A popular option at weddings and corporate functions is to set the mood on guest arrival with our instrumental jazz band then once the meals, speeches and formalities are finished, the Singers join the band to perform our Swing repertoire and get your guests up and dancing 'til the end of the function...
