The Best Damn Irish Drinking Show You'll Ever See

A ragtag group of some of the most entertaining Irishmen (and woman!), The Black Velvet Band (BVB) is a hilarious, fun and high-energy group that will keep the party rocking all night long! We specialize in interactive performances that will have the crowd singing, laughing and begging for one more song and toast!


The BVB plays events large and small: weddings, corporate affairs, house parties, dive bars and festivals throughout the state of Florida.

We are a friendly, experienced and easy-to-work-with group that plays the best damn Irish Drinking Show you'll ever see!

WHAT WE DO: The BVB usually plays four hour sets with no breaks. Between each song, the band invites the crowd to raise their glasses for a toast - sometimes sweet, often bawdy in nature. The last 15 minutes of each hour, the BVB steps off the stage to engage the crowd in a fun and easy drinking game called Minister's Cat.
