"Its country withs the grease of a small town diner, jazz in a downtown lounge, rock in a crowded bar....Blues in a road house across the state line and ballads with a half-empty wine glass...
Velvet Café was born in December of 2010 at the Coronado Boathouse. Local guitarist Robb Huff had recently begun a casual night of music once a month with various local vocalists and musicians sitting in. Having just returned to the States after a year in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Robb talked his "niece" Stacy into singing some Christmas carols. A close family friend, Robb had long been privy to Stacy's vocal talent and knew that stage fright usually got the best of her. Fortunately, a transformational year in Argentina saw her singing jingles for MTV & Jeep, and performing with Argentine electro-pop band Camanchaca. Joined by local carpenter and versatile harpist Murray Nies, sound-man Rene Roques on bass, and erudite English professor Bob Pickford on drums, a nameless band took Coronado by storm. After a brief stint as "Molly's Wedding" the band eventually settled on the handle "Velvet Café".
Velvet Café is hard to categorize; stylistically diverse, their repertoire ranges from blues to jazz to rock to torch songs, vintage country, contemporary pop, latin rock & french ballads. We play throughout San Diego & Coronado at venues including 1887 on the Bay, Hornblower Cruise Line, Hotel Del Coronado, Marriott Marquis, Machester Hyatt, Coronado Yacht Club, Wine Pub, Sea180, La Costa Resort, McP's, San Diego County Fair, and Humphrey's, as well as street fairs, weddings and corporate events. Our electronic press kit can be foundhere. Although the core band is a 5-piece, we play regularly as a duo, trio and as a 6-piece.
