2012 AT Showcase Round 5: Ben Franks & The Bible Belt Boys

  • Ben Franks & The Bible Belt Boys play Round 5 of the 2012 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase.

Ben Franks & The Bible Belt Boys formed last year in Hot Springs. The trio — all men of the cloth — is made up of Rev. Benjamin Franks, Rev. Benjamin Robbins and Bro. Michael Stewart. They play pop tunes with simple instrumentation — banjo, acoustic guitar and a basic drum kit, though they've hinted about saxophones and fiddles, so don't be surprised if those show up Friday. "Our Story," from the band's recent EP, is a sweetly sentimental ode to the trials of youthful love. "Sad Song" is just that, though its topic — the sting of separation — is leavened a bit by an upbeat air.

Check out "Our Story" below.
