A four piece electro-acoustic band based in South Somerset.


Powercut are a pop/rock covers band from the south west.

They formed in late 2006, all the members having gigged extensively with previous bands.

Drawing on their vast musical experience covering Rock, commercial pop, and Country, Chris, Dave, Rob & Ben have created a covers band with a difference. A mix of electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums and now (recently added) keyboards plus extensive use of four part harmony vocals enables the band to tackle almost all genres of popular music.

Ideally suited to play both large and small establishments, even Venues where volume levels can be a problem.

The band’s repertoire can only be described as extensive. Artists featured include greats from the 1960’s (The Beatles, The Who, Monkees), through the 1970’s, 80’s & 90’s ( REM, Stereophonics, Oasis, Jam) to the present day (Mumfords, Coldplay, Fratellis, Killers, Kings of Leon).

The main criteria in the choice of material is that the song will be known to the vast majority of listeners, without reliance on songs that may have been covered by many pub bands before.
