The Trapps name came from the saying of "playing round the traps", in reference to the number of pub venues the band played around in their 80’s gig circuit. Founding member Kevin Ballard has added Lauren Baker on vocals, his brother John Ballard on bass and drummer Brian Lambert to the current mix.

The Trapps covers tunes from the 70’s to the 90’s , and occasionally edging in to the noughties. Crowd favourites are songs by The Angels, The Black Keys, AC/DC, Paul Kelly, John Mellencamp, Hoodoo Gurus and George Ezra.
