CUT CAPERS are a 9-piece Bristol band whose energetic live performance and infectious sound have won them a cult following on the British festival scene. Mixing a heavy 4-piece brass section with funk, dance and hip-hop. Like all the best bands, their sound is hard to pin down but comparisons have been made to “Lianne La Havas, Hot 8 Brass Band and The Streets” among many others (The Bristol Magazine).
Cut Capers have established themselves as go-to festival favourites, playing headline shows and main stage performances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury and Boomtown Fair. They have now performed in over 50 cities across 8 countries including Italy, Turkey and Bahrain.
Their second studio album Metropolis received critical acclaim and national airplay on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Radio Wales. The release, alongside subsequent remixes, has clocked almost 5 million streams on Spotify alone.
