Meet the Band

One of the best live bands in the city. And now with this awesome EP out, I can only imagine their live show are only going to get better.

Tourist Trap started with Bryer and Weirich jamming in a downtown Columbus, Oh basement. After finding that their musical pursuits were similar they sought to find a bassist to join the band. Weirich met local musician, Barnes, while at a party near The Ohio State University campus. After jamming for one night they knew he was the perfect fit. Through three years of mixed reviews and success the band found Phillips, a Columbus native, to fill the vacancy that three great musicians had held previously. Together they form Tourist Trap.
