about

Trapfire Brothers are a blues-rock outfit with an appreciation for good music across all genres. Their hats hang in Greenville, SC where the current lineup came together through a web of bands and jams stemming from their time in college. While not actually brothers, there is a shared passion for just having as much fun as possible playing music. The Trapfire Brothers repertoire covers artists ranging from The Wood Brothers to The Weekend, and if you are lucky, you might catch an ear-pleasing original or three every now and then.
