Biography

Munich, Germany (1994 – present)

BeNuts are a German ska band from Munich.

A notable feature about the band are their multilingual song lyrics. While most of the songs, as well as all of the album titles, are English, many compositions also feature French, German, Spanish and even Croatian lyrics and titles. This made touring through most of Central Europe possible. In the first years of the band line-up changes occurred very frequently. Especially the position of singer and frontman experienced a lot of changes through the years. From 2003 to May 2006, this spot was filled by American vocalist Robert Johnson.

The group was founded in 1994 and has since been a very popular concert attraction not only locally, but all throughout Germany. After four CD releases at Artysan and Wolverine Records they had been touring in Europe (Austria, Switzerland, France, Czech Republik, Spain, Slowenia and Italy) and played a tour together with Bad Manners in Germany. On the “Sex sells”-Tour beNUTS played 2004 some shows together with the Spanish Band Ska-P This had great influence on the musical style of the band, which changed from traditional ska to offbeat rock.
2005 beNUTS played as one of the first German ska bands in Russia and Serbia. In December 2006 the band released the live-album “Best of…live” and played seven concerts in Japan. 2008 the band played again in Russia and was filmed and broadcasted by A-One TV and MTV Russia. Autumn 2008, after another tour in Japan together with Dallax the last founding member Daniel Mauss ended his active musical career and took over management of the band.

    Hat jemand noch Bandtips von Gruppen die ähnlich klingeln oder im Ska Bereich ähnlich gut sind wie beNUTS? Muß nicht englisch sein, auch deutsch, spanisch oder sonstwas. Hauptsache das Feeling stimmt.
