Black Velvet, the new band that Oryx Rotana’s Jazz Club recruited recently, is here to serenade you with the soothing sounds of classic soul and R&B music.
We dropped by the Jazz Club last Wednesday (17th August) to check out the new recruits & since Allyson was invited by the hotel.
As we entered the outlet, the band was warming up which immediately awed us since a few songs already sounded superb. Unfortunately, due to work the next day we couldn’t stay until they finished their whole set though we weren’t disappointed when we left that evening since the band was quite remarkable plus the two lovely ladies, who were the lead vocalists, have truly divine voices. They pretty much complimented each other as one singer had a raspy voice and the other quite the opposite with her smooth silky vocal chords. Both are indeed talented and were able to belt out the high notes of the songs they performed with ease. We were unexpectedly pleased to learn that even the band’s drummer sings! Needless to say, we were impressed by his vocal chops and felt the emotion while he sang John Legend’s hit “Ordinary People”.
Not only were we treated to an amazing vocal show that evening, we were also provided our choice of food + drinks. Apart from the band, another great thing about Jazz Club is that their substantial menu offers various options from appetizers, salads, burgers, steaks, desserts, spirits, wine & specialty cocktails only found at the outlet.
It was a great evening where we had the opportunity to not only witness a splendid band, eat good food but also catch up with each other. You know you’re enjoying the performance once you find yourself unconsciously swaying to the beat of the songs playing in the background.
Highly recommend you check out Black Velvet with performances everyday except Saturday starting at 9PM. Their repertoire includes classic tunes like “Listen” by Jennifer Hudson from the soundtrack of the movie Dreamgirls, “Fallin'” by Alicia Keys, The Fugees’ Killing me Softly with his Song plus many more. Here’s a short video to tease you 😛 .
