Over the years The Black Velvet Band has built up a huge repertoire of songs. We don't really work to a 'set' list, our general appeal is based on our ability and experience to 'read the crowd' so we all have a great party!
Our repertoire includes not only traditional Irish and folk songs but a wide selection of contemporary rock and country songs plus dozens of Jigs, Reels, Polkas and Waltzes.
We are always expanding our repertoire but the condensed list below will give you an indication of the directions we head in.
We have something to get the party started whatever your music tastes.
