While a typical OPM band is composed only of a maximum of five to six members, folk-pop band Ben and Ben is an ensemble of nine equally-talented musicians led by twin siblings Miguel and Paolo.
Other bands with atypical number of members would sometimes have disagreement over a lot of things like creative differences, credit and talent fee. But Ben and Ben never had any problem with such matters. “Everything is equal sa band”, says the group.
But just like any other bands, Ben and Ben has their own shares of misunderstandings as well. Yet, the best thing about them is they treat each other like family. So, no matter how little or big the conflict is, they talk about and resolve it as a team.
Ben and Ben has so much on their plate at the moment. One of which is their upcoming film “LSS” which will be top-billed by Khalil Ramos and Gabbi Garcia. The storyline of “LSS” revolves around a couple who shares the same love for Ben and Ben. Aside from giving the audiences a quick romantic trip, “LSS” also aims to provide the viewers a good appreciation of the local music scene. The movie is an official entry to the Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino happening on September.
Fans can also look forward to their debut album slated for release next month. The album is entitled “Limawasa Street” taken from the Butuan word “masawa” which means light. The band is both grateful and in awe that the album has already been sold-out for pre-orders.
