Velvet Motion 70s Band
About Velvet Motion 70s Band
Velvet Motion Duo
The Velvet Motion Duo features Heidi Dannhauser (neé Bouwer) on vocals, saxophone and violin, and Corné Dannhauser on vocals, trumpet, electric solo bass and guitar. Heidi was named by Nataniël as one of South Africa’s top five female singers. She has an impressive background in the performing arts, including 30 years in theatre, television exposure and cabaret. Corné follows hot on Heidi’s heels with his own impressive history in the entertainment industry as performer, songwriter and composer who has worked with local (ie. Nataniël) and international (ie. Stef Bos) stars.
They have a large repertoire including jazzy music (also referred to as 'Lounge Music') from the 1930’s to ‘50’s, Latin tunes, songs from the musicals, adult contemporary and a couple of African favourites. They're sophisticated, yet draw some foot-tapping, perfect for live background music without interfering with conversation. They tend to smooth out those awkward moments characteristic of social gatherings where people don't necessarily know each other. They are the perfect choice if you require a big sound with a variety of live instruments and vocals, but are on a tight budget. Their strongest point is their cross-cultural appeal. Beautiful vocals and clever instrumentals, they are an incredibly talented and fresh duo.
“It has always been an absolute pleasure to work with Velvet Motion over many years – punctual, professional most importantly, highly talented! Always a treat for any of our blue chip clients – take a bow Corné & Heidi!”
