Velvet Divan


'Velvet Divan' is a husband and wife acoustic duo consisting of Tim & Felicity Hibberd performing classic songs from the 60's up to present day hits. We pride ourselves on being a high quality, professional act for any occasion. With over 40 years combined experience in Tasmania and the mainland Tim & Flic bring a wealth of musical knowledge and passion to every live performance.Tim (vocals and guitar) began his career in the mid 80's playing drums in 'Complex Minds,' 'Clown House' and 'Total Fire Band' but soon found singing and guitar fulfilled him more as an artist. In the early 90's he became the lead singer and guitarist for the band 'The Tin Men'.

Tim is currently a successful solo artist as well as playing in a well-known duo called 'Rum Jungle'.  In his extensive career he has played Wrest Point Casino, Launceston Casino, Australian Wineries, Whitsunday Islands, The Tanks Art Centre, 2016 AFL Grand Final at the MCG and various hotels, clubs & resorts throughout Australia. He has also performed at hundreds of Corporate and community events, weddings and private functions as well as supporting bands such as The Angels, Mental As Anything and Boney M.

Felicity Hibberd (vocals), began her professional singing career in the late 80's playing in various duo's and trio's based out of Launceston, since forming a duo with Tim, they have performed at Festivale on a few occasions, the 2016 AFL Grand Final at the M.C.G as well as many private and corporate functions in and around Australia.

Tim & Flic's soulful vocals are a stand out in this duo. Velvet Divan endeavours to provide a great night’s entertainment for any venue, wedding, Corporate or private function. We can also transform the acoustic duo into a high energy 5-piece band with the inclusion of quality musicians that we have performed with on so many occasions in the past.

A quality PA system and light show is provided with every performance. We look forward to discussing any specific future entertainment requirements you may have.

Tim and Flic have played at 2 of the venues I operate in Perth called they Oyster Bar and I highly recommend any venue to engage with them if they want quality entertainment. Just a pity they are moving around Australia as I would have them back again and again!!

Tim & Flic are an incredible duo, with equally incredible voices & musical ability. Do yourself a favor and follow them on their travel journey and get to one of their gigs!Highly recommend!!

They played an impromptu performance on NYE at Denmark and they were outstanding. When you’re performing acoustic there’s nowhere to hide and they had the crowd rocking.
