New York, NY - The Trapps will return to New York City on Saturday, January 15th at 11:30pm for a sixty minute performance at Joe's Pub located at 425 Lafayette Street in The East Village.

Hailing from New York's Hudson Valley, The Trapps are a Roots-Rock band with a loyal regional fan base, two full album releases, and a busy tour schedule. Led by singer-songwriter Sean Schenker on acoustic guitar and lead vocals, The Trapps are a five-piece band featuring deep lyrical content, rich harmonies, pulsating bass and drum rhythms, and soaring electric guitars. Jason Fine, Executive Editor of Rolling Stone magazine, described The Trapps as "rangy, experimental Roots-Rock played with confidence and hope."
The band's latest studio release, "Cheap Seats", received airtime on over 100 radio stations across the country. The album also enjoyed critical acclaim from numerous publications and climbed both Americana and Roots-Rock charts. Johnny Black, the Music Director of 105.7 in Amarillo, Texas said, “The openness and purity of the songs on ‘Cheap Seats’ just drips out of my speakers like warm Southern Comfort and honey.”
The Trapps' touring route covers much of the Northeast of the United States with New York City being a common destination. The Trapps have played many of the legendary listening rooms in New York including The Bowery Ballroom, The Knitting Factory, and The Rockwood Music Hall. They have shared the stage with numerous national acts such as Levon Helm at his Midnight Ramble, Rusted Root, Blues Traveler, Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Martin Sexton, and America. The January 15th show marks The Trapps’ debut performance at the legendary East Village concert hall Joe's Pub.
Located at 425 Lafayette Street, Joe's Pub opened in October of 1998 and is known as one of the great live music rooms in Manhattan.

The Village Voice voted Joe's Pub the “Best Excuse to Let a Single Venue Dictate Your Taste" and Newsweek calls the club "one of the country's best small stages."
