Uppercut Deluxe recently caught up with long-time friend and Ambassador, Pat Capocci. If Pat isn’t cutting at his barbershop in Freshwater, NSW, or surfing on Sydney’s northern breaks, he’s touring and performing at some of Australia’s most iconic music venues. Pat has a musical style all of his own – well worth a look if he’s playing near you. He combines country, blues, roots, swing and jazz to create a genre all of his own. His unique singing style, combined with his classic look provides a contrast and edge which is hard to come by, making him one of the hottest properties in the southern hemisphere. Though his talents don’t stop with music.
Pat first picked up the shears and scissors a few years ago and has very quickly established himself as a talented barber. In 2017 he opened up his very own shop, Flying Tiger Barbershop. With some hard work Pat has earnt himself a very loyal following and created a one of a kind space of all walks of life. His three chairs are constantly full, so there is always a steady stream of sharp cuts flowing out the door.
Surfing has always been one of Pat’s biggest passions. Living on Sydney’s northern beaches, he’s lucky enough to have a smorgasbord of different waves, from peeling points to punchy beachies. This variety has given him the chance to ride different boards, which he works closely with local shaper Nick Miles of Sculpt Surfboards to refine. You’d be lucky to catch him without a smile on his face. An all-round talented dude, we are very proud to have him part of Uppercut Deluxe family.
