Biography

"The Bentmen have long been an enigma in the Boston rock scene. This rock band/performance art troupe mix disturbing, dadaist, psychedelia with a grotesque stage-show resulting in a blistering, confusing and often mesmerizing performance. Each show is a themed extravaganza with stage design and costuming that could only be described as disturbing and worrisome. Bentmen shows are paganistic affairs where people get tarred, feathered and dragged to the stage to partake in ritualistic body shavings. The Bentmen have wowed crowds of tens of thousands at outdoor festivals and sold out almost every club in town over the years -- well, those who dare." - Joe Bonni, The Weekly Dig
