About Me

The Trapps were a pub rock band, formed in the late Seventies – and now they are back! Founding members Brett Godwin and Kevin Ballard have re-shapen The Trapps with the view to reliving those gigs of the 70’s and 80’s again. The current lineup is Lauren Baker On Vocals, John Ballard on bass and Brian Lambert on drums
The name comes from the saying of “playing round the traps”, in reference to the number of Pub venues that bands used to play around in their gig circuit.

In the Eighties The Trapps played a mixture of original and current covers and supported most of Australia’s Top bands that stopped at Taree on their way north to the Gold Coast. Some of which were Cold Chisel, INXS, The Saints, Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, Mental as Anything, and Divinyls.

The Trapps in early 2013 were chosen as Mid North Coast finalists in the ABC radio Exhumed competition, making it to the final six bands for the region. The gig at Bellingen was filmed on ABC TV and all six shortlisted acts featured on ABC Mid North Coast mornings before the Exhumed gig.

The Trapps song list is a who was who in the 70’s and 80’s ; David Bowie, Tom Petty, The Kinks, Van Halen, Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Angels, AC/DC, Deep Purple, Thin Lizzy and more.

Catch the Trapps at a venue near you soon, to relive the best years of Pub Rock in Australia.
