AMBIENT FOLK ROCK
THURSDAY, APR 20 @ 7PM
$20 SUGGESTED DONATION
An old, rusty bunkhouse. Northern Nebraska in January. 5 musicians, no heat, a small PA, big ideas. 3 days later, Bernardus was formed. An idea that had been in the mind of lead singer and songwriter Ben Kramer has finally become a reality. Hailing from Lincoln, Nebraska and blessed with a unique name, Bernardus has all the making of an up and coming prodigious band.
Their ambient folk rock sound, uniquely paired with lead singer Ben Kramer’s singer/songwriter style of lyrics, brings a tone that is best described as alternative americana through a modern pop lens. Together as a 5 piece, the band recently released their first album; a self titled EP containing 5 songs. The Lincoln Journal Star calls it, “Impressive, from the songs to the performance and the production, establishing Bernardus as one of the best new outfits on the Lincoln scene.” Bernardus recently returned home from a successful, 56 show tour during October and November of 2016.
Bernardus will again be on an acoustic duo tour starting in February and will be playing shows all throughout the South, Midwest and Southeast United States through March 2017.
