The Velvet Underpants are a Santa Cruz, CA, tribute band to one of the most influential bands in the history of rock. Hardly recognized in their day, the revolutionary songs of Lou Reed's Velvet Underground still reverberate a half-century later as a timeless reminder of what rock & roll once was, still is, and always will be. The Velvet Underpants is our attempt to bring these sonic gems to life, with all the quirks and flaws of the real thing and then some.














A loose but faithful tribute to Rock n' Roll's original badasses.”
