Bernardus will embark on a 7 week duo tour starting September 28, 2016. The duo will be playing mostly original and some cover music for a wide variety of venues in many different states. Following a successful release of their 5-song EP, "Bernardus", they began work on their fist full length tour. It will consist of shows throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Texas and most southern US states. Then they will move their way along the southeastern coast, eventually working their way back to Lincoln, NE.

Solo musicians in their own right, brothers Ben and Jake Kramer have been performing in many different groups since a young age. It was only about a year and a half ago that they decided to take their music to the next level. They wrangled together a 5 piece band, recorded a locally well-received EP and have significantly increased their fan base in Lincoln. Even as a duo, however, Ben and Jake will perform all their original songs on the EP as well as many others they have written. Since they do not have the full band, their live shows will consist of Ben performing on the acoustic and electric guitars while Jake plays the violin, mandolin, guitar and piano. They are excited to perform their work to as many people as possible and are confident that this tour will be a success!


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.

Bernardus' 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 will be on an acoustic duo tour starting in the end of September 2016 and will be playing shows all throughout the South, Midwest and Southeast through November 2016. To find a show in your area, visit the "shows" section on the bernardus music website.
