Supplier Details

The Velvet Lounge are, without doubt, Ireland's premiere lounge band. Featuring a set ranging from Ray Charles to Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble, to our own unique jazz/lounge style versions of contemporary artists such as Oasis, Radiohead and even The Cure. Performing music that appeals to both young and old, the Velvets will have your dancefloor full all night!

We pride ourselves in being different to other wedding bands, so you won't find any ABBA or 'Amarillo' songs in our set list! We leave that to the DJs! If you are after something unusual and memorable for your dancefloor, then this is the band for you!

We cater for weddings, corporate functions, private parties and exclusive events. We can offer our full six-piece band for dancing the evening away, or you can opt for a smaller lineup to play during drinks receptions, creating a unique party atmosphere with sophisticated background music.

Featuring Irelands top jazz vocalist, Cormac Kenevey (Hugely Impressive - Sunday Times, Five Stars - Sunday Tribune) and one of Irelands hottest and most experienced pianists, Cian Boylan, the combination of these two extraordinary talents guarantees music of the highest caliber.

The winner of Ireland's Wedding Journal, "Bride of the Year" chose the Velvets as their evening entertainment:
"With the formalities over, The Velvet Lounge, an incredible swing band really got the party started and as the evening passed and the dance floor filled, Claire and Gerard began to relax into their new roles as husband and wife." - Ireland's Wedding Journal Summer 2008.

  • Hi there,

    I just wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for performing at our alumni event last night. The Velvet Lounge band provided the perfect backdrop to the evening and went down extremely well. Many thanks for a job well done!
    We actually have another event later in the year which we would like you to perform at - we are holding an internal conference in October, I will forward the details shortly.

    Kind regards,

  • Dear Cormac and guys,

    Just wanted to say thank you for the great evening you put on for my birthday party at The House last Saturday.

    You judged the evening just perfectly, really lifting everyone’s mood and guaranteeing the party lasted into the wee small hours.

    Everyone was impressed with the standards of the music and vocals, and I know for a fact that some people who haven’t danced in many years were moved to get up and groove!

    Wishing you every success, and renewed thanks,

  • Hi Cian and the band, A BIG thank you for performing at our wedding at Markree Castle 2 weeks ago. We can't thank you enough, ye were absolutely fab. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful you were and want to go see you perform in Dublin. We will highly recommend you to our friends for their weddings in the future!! Thanks also for letting our Bridesmaid, Lisa, sing 'At Last' with you - and thanks for learning that version for us! We thoroughly appreciate the effort involved, as fellow musicians, and enjoyed every moment. We were just saying, 2 weeks ago we were dancing at our wedding, and wonder where the time went! In fact, on the night it all just flew by so fast. We were caught up talking to guests perhaps more than our twinkle toes would have liked, but had a fabulous time and have many happy memories of the day. Thanks again, With best wishes,

    I wouldn't have any hesitation recommending Cian and Cormac for any occasion.
