Black Velvet Punks are a hip-hop, jazz punk, and neo-soul band fronted by black genderqueer guitarist, Taylor Seaberg with drummer/vocalist, Traiveon Dunlap and bassist, Roderick Glasper. Often soulful and punk driven, the group carries a vibrant energy.

Under their former name of "People Will Dance," Seaberg's in-studio performance of their song "Vibes" was featured in City Pages' Local Frames and the Local Current blog's Friday Five music video roundups. Seaberg has also performed at an MPR sponsored album release show for Chastity Brown's Silhouette of Sirens at The Fitzgerald Theater, a Greenroom Magazine sponsored show for Oshun, as well as Minneapolis Institute of Art's Third Thursday Art + Lit events.
