About Velvet Groove Band

We are Velvet Groove, based in Bloomington, IL . We have, individually or collectively, played at venues all over the state and, in Jim Blands case, nationally. We perform primarily 50s to early 70s material, in addition to a large repertoire of Elvis Presley.

Our usual fee is 350 – 2000 USD for a 4 hr. performance. This depends on distance traveled outside Bloomington/Normal, and is of course negotiable.

Our membership:

Jim Bland: Lead Guitar (Formerly of The Spectors)
Brad Reside: Rhythm Guitar/Bass (Formerly of White Buffalo)
Todd Asper: Drums (Mighty Groove Trio)
Curt Kessler: Vocals/Bass Guitar (formerly of Black Velvet and Straight Talk)
