Their motto, "We hit you hard, but it doesn't hurt!" This motto reflects the band's musical style which is based on a Classic hard rock sound. The band members performing on Canada Day 2010 were; (Russian born Vocalist-Serguei Ourozov), (Lead Guitarist-Morgan Wright), (Bass Guitar-Keith Dinelle) and (Drummer-Kaden Rocque). One of the bands most memorable experiences together, (for these members), was their opening at the Ottawa SuperEx for Rock Band-"April Wine".
In August 2010 Velvet Hammer experienced some growing pains with some member changes to its band. The band now has a new lead Vocalist known as Renato Vettore. The band also has recruited Mike Sues on Keyboards.
