Following closely from a sold out appearance at the Deaf Institute last month and a grand slot opening Dot to Dot Festival from Band On The Wall’s stage, Macclesfield’s calypso-flavoured Cassia are returning to the Swan Street venue next February for another headline outing. The prolific touring trio have already played five dates in Manchester this year, with more fans eager to catch the tropical trio with each appearance.
Combining continent-spanning influences with vigorous energy, Cassia have quickly found fans with their own brand of “calypso-flavoured afro-rock”, mixing the “quintessentially British, and the unequivocally exotic”. The band embarked on a sell out tour of the UK last month, following a busy summer appearing at The Great Escape, Dot to Dot, Truck, Y-Not, and Leeds & Reading, as well as an extensive tour of Europe stopping in Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland. Not too shabby for a band with just the one eponymous EP to their name.
Cassia perform at Band On The Wall on Friday 16th February 2018. Tickets are available here.
