About Valentia

The finest acoustic Folk, Gypsy Jazz and Pop for your event!
Gypsy jazz band
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Verified profile

Conceived and nurtured in the Stroud Valleys, contemporary Gypsy Jazz, Folk & Pop duo, Valentia combine class with excitement in ways perfect for any event! Their unique style is in part due to their varied musical influences: Celtic, Gypsy, Pop and Classical styles weave their way into traditional Folk, 30's Swing and modern Bop sounds. The result is exhilarating and compelling, invariably leaving their audiences in as much astonishment as wonder and delight. After sharing the stage together for years, playing at festivals, weddings, private events, clubs & restaurants, Valentia decided to branch out as a duo to share their unique musical chemistry in the duo format. This format highlights the interplay and intricacy in their playing. They are a band focused on providing musicality above all else and pride themselves on providing appropriate music for any situation. If you want a musical spectacle with virtuosity and energy, they have you covered. If you are after something relaxed, yet engaging for a more subtle environment, they have you covered. If you want something beautiful and romantic for a first dance or walking down the aisle too, they have you covered.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Generally a change of timing is not an issue as long as it is on the same day.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

You welcome to use our amps to plug in your ipod/phone to play whatever music you want!

How much time do you need to set up?

If it is just the two of us using our own amplification we can set up in about 15min. If we need to set up a PA it would take about an hour to be sure everything is just right.

If we are booked to play an acoustic performance with no amplification needed then we'll be happy to roam around while we perform.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We are happy to learn a request for 2 just for the night free of charge!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

We always give a quote that is inclusive for all the necessary aspects of the performance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We are happy to perform a special song or 2 that you'd like to hear at your event.
