The Paper Crowns Electric Band:
Spiro & Nicole Nicolopoulos have returned to their jam and psychedelic roots with their 5 piece electric ensemble The Paper Crowns Electric Band. Their songs are a medley of blues, psychedelic and Southern rock, folk and funk - steeped in the tastiest traditions of American music. The Paper Crowns are known for their top tier improvised jams, soulful harmonies and richly cultivated songwriting.
