Alyse Black and the True Velvet did a spectacular job at our corporate event. She was very sensitive to the volume of the music and made sure that it wasn't too loud for our guests, ensuring that they could still mingle and talk. She was also very attentive, and went the extra mile to fully accommodate all of our special requests. Many of our guests, and the venue manager remarked that they sounded amazing, and several people asked for contact info. I highly recommend this group. They are friendly, professional, and very talented.

So much fun, laid-back & the nicest people you'll ever meet. She has a beautiful voice and the rest were perfect as well. People were literally stopping us & asking for their info & saving it on their phones. We had a wedding ceremony & reception together at night in a jazz club and it was perfect. They even did the procession music for the wedding party. All the guests raved. They didn't even bat an eye at a couple last-minute changes. Alyse-thank you for the BEST night ever!!!! -Staci & Bo 6.10.16

We had Alyse and True Velvet perform for our wedding, and to sum it up, they were absolutely amazing. Everyone took a moment away from dancing to tell me how much they loved the band. They had a fabulous set including everything from Frank Sinatra to the Spice Girls. Alyse was so much fun to have around, she has a great positive energy. I couldn't imagine a more perfect performance for our wedding.
