Benjamin B. was a Dutch indie guitar band from the northern town of Winschoten, The Netherlands, fronted by singer, guitarist and songwriter, Fiebo Scholtens. The group was active from 1994 to 2005. They never announced their split, but seemed to have silently disappeared by 2006.

Benjamin B. was founded as a three-piece: Scholtens, Barbara Lampe (bass) and Michel Weber (drums). Dutch indie label, Excelsior Recordings, signed them after having heard their début demo. Their début EP came out in late 1996.

It was officially self-titled, but became known as the Cherry Blossom EP, after the opening song and the picture of cherry blossom on the cover. 1997 saw the release of the band's first full-length album, The Comfort of Replay, to good reviews but disappointing sales in comparison to more succesful fellow 'Excelsior bands' including Daryll-Ann, Johan and Caesar. With Vincent van Vondel as its new bassist (following the departure of Barbara Lampe) and guitarist/pianist, Nico B., as a fourth group member, the band recorded a sophomore album, Instant Art, which was released in 1999, once again a critical success but a commercial failure. The band seemed to have folded in 2000, but re-surfaced in 2001. Benjamin B. uploaded a monthly cover song on their website and, in 2003, started working on their third album, which was turned down by Excelsior Recordings, but eventually released on Living Room Records, entitled Tired Of The Moon (2004). At this point Benjamin B.

had become a six-piece, following the arrival of Eddy Scholtens (guitars, keyboards) and René Asschert (drums). 2005 saw a Benjamin B. contribution to a compilation album entitled 'Schaamte en Woede' ('Shame and Anger'). This song, Yolk, was the last sign of life from Benjamin B.
