“Exciting hard-hitting soul/funk with one hell of an on-stage vibe.”

David Lyttle, Mobo nominee 2016, acclaimed drummer/producer and Lyte Record Label owner.

“Adventurous, accomplished and motivating, Velvet Alibi is an orchestra much greater than the sum of all its individually very talented parts.”

Paul Brown, Festival Director, Earagail Arts Festival.

“One of the highlights of our Jazz Festival weekend. Velvet Alibi blew the roof off and closed the festival in style. Fantastic band and great music. Has to be one of the top original acts around today.”

John Leighton, owner/promoter, Bennigan’s Jazz Bar, Derry

“Velvet Alibi is a wonderful and unusual thing. They make funk-soul-jazz influenced music that sounds, at one and the same moment, like you know it and that you’ve never heard anything quite like it before. We had Velvet Alibi play an extended set at the end of festival party of Echo Echo’s International festival of Dance and Movement in November 2015. They were brilliant!”
