The Velvets are dedicated to reproducing the sound and atmosphere of a Velvet Underground gig from the 1960s. The Velvet Underground are considered by many to be the most important and influential alternative rock band of all time. Championed by Andy Warhol and seriously underappreciated, perhaps until Punk came along.
Concentrating on what could be considered the classic halcyon period for the band and interspersing both Nico and Lou Reed vocals with the experimental nature of many of those early recordings, The Velvets concentrate on a "Live" sound and pay little attention to any attempt at visual similarities to the original members (barring the odd pair of shades!). Classic tracks performed by the band include Waiting for the Man, Venus in Furs and All Tomorrow's Parties.
Catch The Velvets live for just a taste of what it must have been like to attend one of those early Velvet Underground shows.
