Owner and local visual artist Corey Fox has been involved with the local music scene since the early nineties, managing some of the most popular bands and venues. After spending years managing other people’s clubs, Fox determined in 2005 that it was time he set to work on opening a club of his own in Downtown Provo, where he recognized that there was a niche waiting to be filled: Provo needed an all-ages venue that also harbored creativity and quality, and a place for the fast-growing local music industry to develop within. He opened the doors of the Velour Live Music Gallery in January of 2006, to an eagerly waiting Utah music scene.

Popular for their annually-themed shows like “Cowboys & Indies”, the best-ranked bi-annual Battle of the Bands within three states (judged by industry professionals and respected recording artists), and weekly Open-Mics where locals pros and the inexperienced alike come to try out new material, Velour is best known as place to discover new talent and build the sort of local bands that will go on to be more than that. In regards to the time Fox has spent creating a well-sought after atmosphere in Velour, he says, “a band is only as good as the place where they play. If all they want to do is play in cinder block warehouses or storage sheds, they are only going to be as great as that. But if bands have a place to play that appeals to something greater, they will work to take themselves beyond the storage-shed mentality.”

All of that has proven true since that first opening in 2006. Velour has stayed busy weekdays and every weekend, hosting bands represented across every genre.

    For roughly $8, you're going to get some of the best shows you've ever seen. Because of the Velour, and Muse Music Cafe, local musicians are bringing their A-Game to Provo. Provo is such a hit for music right now, with bands like The New Electric Sound, The National Parks, Mideau, Mimi Knowles, etc. etc. Seriously, check out some of those bands at http://www.bandsfromutah.com/ and then go to a show at the Velour and be convinced yourself. Even open mic night is wicked good. And for $3!
