Santa Cruz-based Americana band Flypaper Blues is straight out of your grandfather's rifle barrel.  A little whiskey, coffee grinds, 2-in-1 oil, and a whole lot of fiddle, driving drums, and bass rhythms. This 100% homegrown, local band brings influences from traditional bluegrass, post-punk, ragtime, to alt-country genres.  Songwriting is personal, comedic, and inspired by the existential need to transcend the hazards and pitfalls of modern life with soul-nourishing music.
