The band has released 10 cds, and bandleader guitarist Miles Corbin has released several solo projects as well. Their music has been featured in many Film and TV soundtracks. The AVs have toured the West Coast extensively and appeared on the East Coast as well, headlining and sharing bills with artists such as Chris Isaak, Dick Dale, and the legendary Beach Boys. The Aqua Velvets sound is a blend of surf, latin rythms, blues, lounge exotica, and psycedelic jazz.
