Rosemary Gettie Waldron Oxendine - Facebook

“They rock!! I have seen Velvet Jane play in several venues and I think they rock!!! There is a lot of power, play, and fun when you see them. Can't wait to see them again!!!”

“Had them for New Years Eve and they rocked the house! We booked Velvet Jane for New Year's Eve and it went really, really well. We were actually 3 times busier than the year before and I truly believe that much of that business was due to them being booked at Hoplite (the bar/restaurant). People really had a great time with them here and it was the best NYE party we have thrown thus far. They were incredibly entertaining and very professional. I honestly can't say enough for this band. We will definitely hire them again, and hope to acquire them for another big occasion at the pub.”

“Amazing!! TOTALLY fell in love with this band!! I saw Velvet Jane perform this past Saturday night @Showtime of Leland, and was WELL impressed! Great vocals and sound. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED the genres played!! Everyone was super friendly as well!! DEFINITELY will be going to see more of them in the future!”

“Great Band Look forward to seeing them again!! This band is one of the best Wilmington has to offer. I have booked them for a few of our fund raising events over the past year. I have always been impressed with how much the fans seemed to be part of the show. They will draw your crowd in and show them a great time. Ari Lehman The lead for the rock band First Jason has asked that when he comes back to Wilmington he wants to open for them. Velvet Jane has show great support to the community and should receive the same in return. Thank you!”

“They Rock!!! I have seen Velvet Jane play in several venues and I think they rock!!! There is a lot of power, play, and fun when you see them. Can't wait to see them again!!!”
