Velvet Chain is a Los Angeles-based band who play a mixture of trip hop, rock, and pop, with a jazz/funk flavor. (The band has sometimes been known to refer to their work as "space-jazz" or "moody groove music" - which is also the title of one of their albums.) Velvet Chain was formed in the mid-1990s by Jeff Stacy and Erika Amato, the creative core of the band. They found mainstream attention after they appeared on an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and later had a song included in the show's soundtrack. Their music has also been used on other TV shows, including HBO's Sex and the City, MTV's Road Rules, CBS's Beverly Hills, 90210 and ABC's Big Shots.[citation needed]
