Ben Bivins & Friends

Ben Bivins, aka the Janitor, is the first cousin to Duncan McCloud of the clan McCloud. He is actually immortal, and when it comes to custodians, there can be only one.  His ideal first date involves dry mopping a gym floor, unclogging your sink, and beheading all other would-be custodians with a “big ass” mop.  When he’s not wielding 67 keys on a single key ring, he’s usually holding it down on guitar on various musical projects including his main band, Brickdrop.
Over the years, Ben has been joined on stage by members of numerous Vermont groups including Swimmer, smalltalker, Grundlefunk, Annie in the Water, and Twiddle. Though the crew is ever changing, the captain is a constant, blending jazz, funk, and blues for the optimal aural experience.
