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).

Playing headline shows and main stage performances at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Glastonbury, WOMAD and Boomtown Fair, they have now performed in over 60 cities across 11 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 over 13 million streams on Spotify alone.
