Cutter & The Mangled Wurzels are a three piece Scrumpy
and Western band from Somerset celebrating the full range
of infectious music this beautiful part of the world has
to offer your ears. The rural brilliance of this merry troupe
provide what every Summer Festival should have - West Country
knees-up singalongs. All together… “I’ve
got a brand new combine harvester!”

What the Fans Said
a quickie to say a very big 'thank you' for such grand entertainment
last Saturday night here in Birmingham. Everyone has commented
on how good you all were. Bill and I thoroughly enjoyed
the full day. Hope that you all got home safely and thanks
again for such good fun - enjoyed by everyone from our grandson
(aged 3) to the eldest member of the party (almost 80!)!
Thank you all once again...
and Bill; Ivy Leaf (RBL) Birmingham - Sept 2009]

you very much for playing at my daughters wedding on 15th
August. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we loved your
set. It was brilliant.
Ford; Brendon, North Devon - August 2009]
many thanks for playing for us on Sunday. It was a shame
the sun did not shine, but the Mangledwurzels helped lift
us. A brilliant set, very funny. We had a very successful
weekend, and managed to raise money for all our charities.
All in all a good time had by all. Once again, many thanks.
[Andrew Crang; Cowfields Music Festival, Yeovil - August
just wanted to say a massive thank you to you for a fantastic
gig at the Bristol Cider Festival last Saturday. We were
really looking forward to it after our first one back in
January, when we had our first Mangledwurzels experience.
And I must admit that that for us half the anticipation
and eagerness for the next cider festival was for the cider
and half was to see you guys play again.
Anyway thanks again. Looking forward to the next Ciderfest!

I really enjoyed the show and left the Club with a smile
on my face. I reckon everyone else who attended enjoyed
it as well.
Portishead Working Men's Club - Oct 2008]
big thank you to you all for a fantastic nights entertainment
at our wedding in October. We had such a great time and
so did our wedding guests! People are still talking about
how good you were. We are trying to think of an excuse for
another party to invite you all up again to perform! Hopefully
see you at a performance somewhere next year...

a quick note to thank you all for playing at our wedding,
it was a wonderful day and everybody enjoyed your performance.
You really made it a party. Hope to see you again soon.

wanted to thank you for a fantastic night on Saturday. We
have had so many comments from people expressing their thanks
for a professional performance. We will certainly be booking
you again for the future.

You! Would you please pass on our thanks to all the guys
in the band for a fantastic gig on Friday night. Both Hazel
and myself really enjoyed ourselves as did all of our guests.
You've been a pleasure to deal with all through the process
and we would highly recommend you to anyone seeking entertainment
for any event.
[Richard & Hazel, August 2008]
a quick note to say thank you very much for entertaining
us at our fundraising party. Everybody said it was a brilliant
evening - and we wanted you all to know. We raised £892.00
for The Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance - so we were absolutely
thrilled with the results of the evening.
& Rog, June 2008]
wanted to write and tell you, your performance at our wedding
was absolutely superb. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it and
agreed it was the highlight. I was only sad we ended up
shortening the time because of the schedule. Nigel and I
are going to keep an eye on where you are and come and see
you again. Once again, brilliant....thank you so much.
and Nigel; Silverton - June 2008]
an excellent night of entertainment from The Mangledwurzels.
Everybody thought you were outstanding and all had a great
night. These three blokes were thoroughly entertaining from
start to finish and were genuinely nice fellas who had time
for everyone in the crowd speaking to them before during
and after the show and posing for pictures; nothing was
to much for them. Their music/songs and comedy delivery
was brilliant and if we had had more time the crowd would
have tried to keep them there all night! These guys are
worth every penny that you pay for them and we will definitely
have them back again. Good luck for the future and once
again thank you for a terrific night.
Entertainments & President of Calne Liberal Club, June
you very much indeed for another fabulous day of excellent
music at our Cider Cheese and Chutney event. May we book
you again for next year?

The Mangledwurzels - they say that ''imitation is the sincerest
form of flattery'', well this tribute band are flattering
The Wurzels in style! If you get a chance to see these guys
then you won't be disappointed.
appreciate that most people would view going to see a Worzels
cover band as a clear sign of insanity but I have to say
they provide a bloody good night out. Perhaps I've been
down here too long. Perhaps living next to Europe's largest
cider factory has done for me. Who knows...
