Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf - BAD GET SOME

Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf

MISS VELVET & THE BLUE WOLF chose Detroit’s iconic United Sound Studio (home to music legends like Earth, Wind & Fire, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic) to record their debut album BAD GET SOME released Oct. 27th 2017 to rave reviews both internationally and at home in the Huffington Post. Produced and music directed by Isotopia Records, the album features native New Yorker Miss Velvet on powerhouse vocals. The talented Blue Wolf Band, Constance Hauman (keys and producer) Nick Carbone (drummer and producer), James Jones (bass), Henry Ott (guitars), Jehiah Bray (sax), Trevor Neumann (trumpet), and Dan Levine (trombone) infuse their unique and infectious blend of rock, soul and funk throughout the album, inspired by the jaw-dropping vocals of front woman Miss Velvet. With their debut single DARE, Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf take the listener on a journey back to the days of psychedelic rock and epic rock vocals. After a residency at NYC’s Rockwood Music hall, two tours in Europe, the band began blowing up airwaves in Germany, Finland and Estonia. Another dream came true when they made a last minute Halloween appearance as opener for their idol George Clinton at NYC’s BB Kings and The Howard Theatre in Washington DC. That dream debut led to 62 performances with George Clinton and P-Funk to cities across the US and Europe. Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf celebrate a year of touring with the funk legends on Halloween 2018 at the Howard Theater and make their debut at the new Sony Hall in NYC on November 2nd 2018. 2019 MV+TBW continue to tour with Dr. Funkenstein and Co., to Hawaii, Australia and Japan with the release of their second album March 2019.

PRESS

GIG JUNKIES LONDON
Launching a funk rock and roll attack, Miss Velvet grabbed the audience’s attention immediately with her raspy vocals and energy… The cool and collected band included guitarist Henry Ott whose craftsmanship and riffs kept the audience’s hands in the air, and a three-piece horn section who were off the hook. The funkiness of the horns complimented Miss Velvet’s powerful melodies and mystical voice treating the waiting fans as the venue slowly filled to tracks Dare, Love Train and [Bad] Get Some, it was easy to see the band have a talent for writing as well as playing. Goosebumps filled the room with a cover of Summertime, perfect for the hot summer’s week that the UK had unusually been treated to. As Miss Velvet simmered the crowd, they’re one to look out for as they left the crowd to vigorous clapping.

DC METRO THEATER ARTS
No [George Clinton/Parliament Funkadelic] concert would be complete without an opening act, and indie-funk-rock band Miss Velvet and the Blue Wolf served that purpose well. The band’s set included several funk-rock tunes including DARE, a hit in Germany. Lead singer Miss Velvet provided a stunning, soulful cover of Summertime.

HUFFINGTON POST
“All I can say is, ‘Yowza!’ Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf are cap-a-pie prodigiously talented. The melodies are phenomenal, the rhythms are combustible and Miss Velvet’s voice contradicts the nonexistence of the phlogiston. BAD GET SOME and DARE blew me away.”

CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
“Miss Velvet’s voice sounds perfectly fit for the stage….an era-defying character.”

BANDSINTOWN
“Miss Velvet’s performance was so multifaceted: unleashed, yet controlled. She evoked the rock ’n’ roll spirit of Janis Joplin, the whimsy of an Age of Aquarius gal, and the steadfast power vocals of Aretha Franklin.”

THE EXAMINER
“When she starts to sing and the tone is a perfect blend of Janis Joplin, Nina Simone and Lucinda Williams with a little Etta James thrown in.”

THE MOST DEFINITELY
“I was totally engaged throughout, mesmerized by her sound and her energy. Girl crush doesn’t even begin to cover it.”

CULT FACTORY
“Add the intensity of Janis Joplin, the softness of Etta James, and the performance swagger of Mick Jagger and then you have it — the eclectic persona that is Miss Velvet.”

Miss Velvet, you are a goddess with an incredible band!! I’ve seen hundreds of concerts (many genres) but have never seen anyone give as much energy as you.
— Michael Yaeger, Atlanta Concert

The opening act for George clinton was the indie funk-rock band Miss Velvet and The Blue Wolf. They served up an opening set that was inspired and entertaining. Reminiscent of Janis Joplin with a great horn section, their lead singer Miss Velvet was stunning and soulful. They are a group destined for greatness.
