8:00 :: SONNY HOUSTON & Blue Velvet Band

The Blue Velvet Band is a collaborative project with Sonny Houston, Beth Perry, David Mold and occasional guest musicians. The band focuses on its members' love for the powerful history of American acoustic and roots music, and presents new music from the songwriting talents of Sonny and David. The band is based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Sonny Houston is originally from the mountains of Eastern Kentucky and has studied the music of that area, and created his own, all his life. He has lived in the Atlanta region for many years and is popular throughout the region as a songwriter, singer and instrumentalist. He has worked with some of the top names in the genre, as well as many of the area's most well-known acoustic groups.

Beth was born in upstate New York, where she grew up studying the piano, singing with her family and listening to her dad play the banjo. Ten years ago she discovered bluegrass music at a jam in the north Georgia mountains and has been playing ever since. Seven years later she picked up a bass for the first time and fell in love with the instrument. She now lives in Atlanta, and is also the pianist for the Wildwood Chamber Players.

Originally from London, England, David moved to Atlanta in the early 2000's and began studying the music of the region. Always a songwriter, he learned to play the mandolin and the bluegrass style of picking from the local musicians in his adopted hometown, and has played in several of Atlanta's local acoustic bands for more than a decade.
