Live Music : Velvet Alibi supported by Comrade Hat

Velvet Alibi is an original, 11 piece, high-energy ensemble hailing from the North-West of Ireland. Their sound is a melting pot of funk, soul, reggae and psychedelic rock delivered in beautiful multi-layered arrangements topped with lush female vocal harmonies. The band are just off the back of their debut London show at top Jazz club, The Spice of Life and are delighted to be ending their tour in The Village Café Bar with a stripped back version of the Velvet Alibi experience

Comrade Hat is multifaceted musician Neil Burns. With a background in Classical composition and jazz piano, he remains active in both fields. As Comrade Hat, however, he pursues his songwriting muse in a variety of often surprising ways. A prolific artist, his singular vision has earned him a growing reputation for quietly
ambitious music.
