Fletcher VanVliet and the Dirty Minds were an Aptos band formed by Fletcher VanVliet (guitar/vox) when he moved there in 2004. The Dirty Minds were Trevor McClain (drums) and Isaac Harrel (bass), and for a time during 2005 included a second guitarist in Alex Willingham. Their music ran the gamut from somber folk to reggae infused punk rock protest songs. Dissatisfied with the local music scene, Fletcher moved to Pennsylvania with his girlfriend and is currently working on a new album there.
