About Us

Many of our friends and fans have described us as, an unlikely group, of everyday people playing music together. People often ask if we actually like each other or have anything in common. We range in age, style, and background. We also each have differing and diverse tastes in music. But, the answer to this question is simple- we definitely like each other. Really, at the end of the day, we are a family; you might even call us a group of non-biological brothers.  As far as, us having anything in common, the answer is elementary. We all have the MOST important ingredient in common- the love of playing all music! 

  A handful of unlikely encounters led us into the brotherhood we named, The Ben Franklin Effect .  People are right to ask questions about our eclectic group, because the truth be told, had fate not shoved us together with our instruments in hand, our family would be smaller and a lot less fun.    I think we can all agree that a good description of this group would be that we are a normal group of guys who share a love of music and would jam all day everyday if their lives would allow it.

The Meaning in the Name

“Benjamin Franklin himself said, "He that has once done you a kindness will be more ready to do you another than he whom you yourself have obliged."The reverse effect is also true, and we come to hate our victims, which helps to explain wartime atrocities. We de-humanize the enemy, which decrease the dissonance of killing and other things in which we would never normally indulge.”
