Come and take a musical journey back through time to the proper roots of American popular music with none other than Sarasota’s musical troubadour, Karlus Trapp. Hear anew the music that influenced and laid the foundations for the music of today. Wade in the water of the Negro spirituals. Dance a two step down Bourbon Street with Louie Armstrong as he changes how music is played and sung. Revel in the atmosphere of a noisy saloon while Scott Joplin plays Ragtime music in the background. You can Hi De Ho a call and response with Cab Calloway or play percussion and sing along with the calypso folk of Harry Belafonte.
Singer/guitarist multi instrumentalist producer Karlus Trapp describes his sound as musical good vibes. Mixing the eclectic sounds of New Orleans, Caribbean/Jamaican influences with Bluesy rockin’ funky jamming, for Trapp it’s all about doing it live. Fearlessly going wherever the urge takes him, he can move naturally between time periods as diverse as the 40’s or the 80’s,effortlessly and seamlessly making it his own while bringing audiences along for the ride. The Native New Yorker is now making fans in his new stomping grounds of southwest Florida for the first time
