The Velveteen Band had an incredible show at Discovery Ventura last Friday!!! Couldn’t make it? Lets fix that!
We want to thank all the incredible people that came out! We loved your hugs. We loved your costumes and cosplays, thank you!!! Special thanks to AHTCK and Soup Hat for kicking off the party. We also want to thank Alert the Globe for filming the event, and for the fantastic video you edited. This really made the event even more magical, thank you for all you do! I have a feeling we’ll be back this summer, love you!!!

Aaron here. I guess we’ve fallen a bit behind on the posting of images. Let’s rectify that forthwith!
This amazing photo by Cliff Montgomery is hanging at the Bombay Bar and Grill in Ventura.
Fum looks quite smashing in a fedora, and what’s more? He knows it!

The Baron gets jiggy with it.

The rhythm section, being rhythmic.
Dan Flores, our manager, is rarely seen anywhere near the group. He’s become something of an urban legend of late, and we just want to make clear that yes, he does exist, and yes, we are very much working with him!
GTZ is doing something complicated
Looks like this robot’s heart is charged and functioning!
Fum is life. Fum is love.
Wake up, everybody!
The Baron steps offstage and into an art show!
Who needs a stage? He’s a rabbit of the people.
You never know where you’ll run into us!
When this solo’s over, he’s coming for you.
Chris Coyle on the drums, ladies and gentlemen!
Chris Coyle and the Baron
While the Baron is very much against guns, he does enjoy posing with them. He’s multifaceted.
Like you don’t have any skeletons in your closet….
Reach for the sky!
Just chillin’. ‘sup?
The trumpet/melodica hornline has become a staple of our lineup!
Who doesn’t love a good hornline?
Cons are the best. Everyone thinks we’re in costume!

We cropped Fum out of this photo because he was getting a bit full of himself.
