Premium Cover Band
Meet Velvet Hand
Velvet Hand is a premium cover band great for corporate events, weddings, and any other function requiring an evening of excellent music. They have a wide range of material that can be tailored to any audience, but their specialty is reproducing the sound and live energy of the Beatles – nowhere was this more apparent than in their concert series in Kitchener in 2012, where they fully recreated the last eight entire Beatles albums live for sold-out crowds.

More About Velvet Hand
Beatles Tribute Show
Velvet Hand is committed to faithfully reproducing the sound & live energy of the Beatles.

“Dynamic and versatile, with incredible music covering various genres and eras, I found them to be utmost professionals. Their sound is tight and their vocals are strong. They have great stage presence and ability to read the crowd, engaging their audience with humour and ease. They will be my first call whenever I need a band!”
Kyla Earle - Event Co-ordinator, Saskatoon, SK
“We’ve been very impressed with how flexible and accommodating Velvet Hand are. Their music was such a hit with our guests that we have been happy to fly them out every year for encore performances – our party would not be the same without them!”
Tom Motz - private event, Waterloo, ON
“Velvet Hand were the perfect choice for our wedding dance! They played all the songs that make for great dancing... known Wallflowers were rocking it out, and thanking us for it after it was done. The only thing we had to do with it, was making the right booking!”
