Join Mr Ben & the Bens at Cluny2 in Newcastle. Known for their captivating, costume clad, joyous, pop performances. Mr Ben & the Bens sound like they were baptised in water from the church of indie classics, their songs echoing Belle & Sebastian, Teleman, Gorkys Zygotic Mynci and a bit of Bill Ryder-Jones.
Following 2019’s album “Who Knows Jenny Jones?”, and now signed to he magnificent Bella Union label for their latest album “Life Drawing”, the band is still on an upward trajectory and right at the forefront of individual Northern creative talents producing work of real worth.
