Variety Adds Spice to Any Event

With The Black Velvet Band's new band lineup, we continue to add even more songs to our extensive and diverse repertoire. We boast almost 200 Irish songs and over 180 American tunes on our play list - over 10 hours of possible music.  

You can enjoy all types of Irish music - ballads, rebel songs, pub tunes, traditional and caeli, polkas, waltzes, foxtrots, jives, and set dances. After all, we are Boston's premier Irish Show Band.

The Black Velvet Band offers much more than most Irish bands by delivering a great mix of popular music. From Sinatra to Springsteen to Smashmouth, Elvis to Eagles to Ed Sheeran, music from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and today, even some classic and current Country music.


You won't find many local bands who can offer such a mix of entertainment!

We Play To The Audience,
Not to A Set List

We want our audience to be part of each occasion - to dance, to sing, to make requests, to remember a fun event. We therefore tailor our music at each event to make sure there's something for everyone.

An outdoor concert needs some songs to involve the kids. Couples want to enjoy a slow dance or maybe a waltz. Single people may want a line dance. Groups like a sing-along.


That's the magic of The Black Velvet Band - playing the music you want to hear.

Professionalism and Experience For Any Occasion

A Reputation For Excellence 

The Black Velvet Band prides itself on our reputation and loyal following. Many of our jobs come from referrals or people who saw the Band perform at other events.


We are fortunate to have a number of gigs that we have annually performed for over 25 years! These include parish dinner dances, fundraisers, social clubs, and community organizations. Our long-time clients are our best advertisement.

Why does hiring The Black Velvet Band make sense for your next event? We always consult with our clients to make sure our music is enhancing the occasion, and they're happy with the song choices.


How can we help you start a tradition?
