The Purple Felts are a six piece, heavy ska/funk band from Perth, Scotland. Blending a diverse range of influences, ranging from P-Funk to The Prodigy, “The Felts” create high-energy sonic grooves designed to keep you on your feet. They have toured their renowned, energetic live show across Scotland, earning esteem amongst audiences for their ability to combine precision performance with frenetic stage presence. Recent shows have taken them south of the border, with upcoming plans to tour the rest of the UK.
The Purple Felts launched their debut E.P. ‘The Jesters Game’ in August 2016, which saw the band receive airplay from various national radio stations including Amazing Radio hosted by Jim Gellatly and Heartland FM. It also saw the band’s profile rise to sharing stages with notable UK artists such as The Lafontaines, Colonel Mustard and the Dijon 5, Mickey 9’s, Break the Butterfly and Dub Pistols. No strangers to the larger stage, “The Felts” have also taken their show to major Scottish festivals such as Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival, ButeFest, Solas Festival, FakeFest and Carnival 56.
Currently, the band are working on their second E.P. scheduled to be released in early 2019, with plans to tour throughout the year.
