We got nothin. Once we've conquered the live scene, we'll worry about cd's.



The Ben Barrs are a group of musicians, singer-songwriters all, that have united behind a unique sound and some truly compelling songs. We like to trick you with a wink and a smile so that you don't realize how hard we're tugging at your heartstrings- and sometimes we even pull that off.
Live shows, for us, are not a means to the end; they are the end. We've little interest in selling you cd's at shows, and none at all in selling you t-shirts. We try pretty hard to sell you a memory; a night where we all became part of something good; but we get paid in smile and dance. That's pretty good, we think. Of course, we try pretty hard to sell you beer, too; but that's effortless really.
We play songs that we hope are clever, are honest, are sometimes funny and sometimes heartbreaking. Mostly, though, we play songs to turn your head; we play songs to wake you up and get you moving.
We've all been playing music for a long time, and have been taking it in for much longer. Collectively we've seen a thousand shows and played hundreds; we've been the bored guy at the bar and we've been the shouting fan in the front row and we've tried to develop a live show that will turn the one into the other. We've developed an aversion to the typical self-absorbed band shtick and try hard to make every show fun; and meaningful.
What can we say? We try to keep you having so much fun that you don't see us stealing your heart.
