In October 2002 Velvetine were chosen out of 70 bands by Catherine Haridy (Festival/Mushroom A&R) and Dan Bessant (Nova 96.9 Program Director) to win the Nova 96.9, Sunday Telegraph, Garage Days band competition. Velvetine received commercial radio airplay on NOVA 96.9’s Original Sydney program in November 2002 and Triple J’s Oz music show in December 2002.
