Velvet Rut live shows are a special blend of dance, pop and rock-n-roll covers. They cover broad range of artists from the 60’s to the present and the songs that they play are beyond the range of a standard bar band. Always aware of the atmosphere and their audience, they can keep the dance floor packed or play softly to allow the crowd to converse and relax. Ten years and hundreds of performances later, Velvet Rut continues to travel throughout the mountain region and neighboring states performing at various events including weddings, private parties, corporate events and clubs to high critical acclaim. If you are interested in booking a Private Party, Wedding or Live show, feel free to contact us.
