Dane Williams and Michael Fiore began playing together when Dane came to Baltimore to become part of a group called “Voices.” A concept band consisting of musicians from surrounding cities on the east coast. Both Michael and Dane with their love for music in common, began a friendship which has lasted through the years and has resulted in this collaboration project under the name “Black Velvet Express.”

“... I love the throbbing groove and spooky slide ... It sounds as if a hybrid of 60’s San Franciso Ballroom Rock and some Pre-Punk Snarl from NYC was tossed into a Spin Cycle with 70’s London Glam ... Michael Molenda Guitar Player Magazine ...”
