Nina Sasaki and Larry Carver have been performing together full time as the core duo of Black Velvet since 2009. They play a variety of rock, blues, jazz and country. Their sound blends Nina’s velvety smooth vocals and acoustic rhythm guitar with Larry’s melodic and passionate electric lead guitar work, and covers a wide range of rock, blues and jazz.
Jack Ellis acoustic blues and more. I’m a singer songwriter, an interpreter, a one-time writing and literature teacher on the high school and college level for many years, and a guitarist since the age of about 12.
