Ben and Bruno is a Grand Rapids-based band. All of the bands' songs are part of a connected story and work in a continuous strain of non-congruent narrative.
"ben and bruno" is a group of songs based around one character named Ben. After losing his mother at a very young age, Ben is abducted by a religious fanatic who has been living in the apartment above the family. Ben, during his trip while fleeing from the police, falls in love with the woman who has abducted him. The story continues after the capture of his new love and he grows older....marrying, having two daughters, divorcing his wife.
