It all started a long time ago in Torrington when a couple of school kids decided to start a band.  The Apricot Brandy was born.  The name happened when the band members decided that the band name would be the first bottle that they grabbed out of the liquor cabinet (true story). Jump ahead many more years and here we are - still playing that great music in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut and beyond!  The Apricot Brandy has played countless dances, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, house parties, fairs, concerts and many other events all over the Northeast. It's too late to stop now!
