Neon Velvet to perform at 26th Annual Hands Across The Valley event



Neon Velvet is like a first date:  Exhilarating!

Imagine all the sass and the glamour of the 80’s New Romantics (Duran Duran, Bowie) in a lurid embrace with the today’s most potent pop and rock hits (Bieber, Coldplay).  The result is a devilishly fun night of sexy dance music.  Neon Velvet is the elite Modern Dance Party.

With clients like Google and the NHL, as well as weddings and smaller companies, Neon Velvet elevates your event to its greatest heights.  Thoughtfully blending classic dance party anthems with current hits and exciting suprises, this world class band packs the dance floor and delivers an unforgettable time!

Elaine Bell Catering to prepare Sponsor Dinner



Locally grown organic foods are the ingredients that have shaped Elaine’s imaginative menus since the company’s beginning in 1982. Back then, Elaine’s young company contacted growers she knew throughout the wine country to procure neighborhood breads, produce, cheeses, poultry, meats and fish…..this was the natural foundation of her culinary philosophy. Today, she still works with local farms, including The Patch, Ocean Song and Oak Hill Farms, to continue her 29-year tradition of creating extraordinary culinary events, from the bounty of our community, sustaining her innovative style.

Elaine Bell Catering is proud of its long-standing reputation as one of the premier catering companies in the Greater Bay Area and the California Wine Country.
