Biography - About us

Ben is an exceptional solo acoustic guitarist for hire with an amazing voice. We've been booking him since 2010 as he's also the guitar player in one of our popular wedding bands. The singer/songwriter style is a very popular form of live entertainment so Ben's incredibe voice, guitar talents and friendly banter make him a popular choice for drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts or simply as background music. 

Ben has performed for many popular artistes, including Robin Gibb (Bee Gees), Clem Curtis (The Foundations), Jimmy James & The Vagabonds and many others. He has performed all over the UK (including Wembley Arena and Jazz Café) and has worked as a session musician for Aegean (George Michael), EMI, ESPN and others. A great all round musician that your guests will enjoy. 

Note: Ben can either be booked solo or can pair up with saxophonist (Ian-T) to form the popular live duo '2 Smooth' where they can mingle amongst your guests creating a fantastic atmopshere as guests join in with them.

Lauren, Wedding, London

"Dear Tim, I would just like to tell you how much we enjoyed Ben last night. His act was just perfect for us and he made the night all the more enjoyable. Please thank him for us, once again. I wish I had another function so I could hire him again!!  Perfect."
Sue Chinnock, 70th Birthday Dinner Party,  Suffolk

"Hey Ben. Thank you very much for your great performance for our friends and family who came over to visit us on Mersea on the weekend. Every generation present had nothing but good things to say about your chosen playlist which suited both our younger and older guests. You done a great job, so good in fact our next door neighbours went after your first set thinking you'd finished and spent the 2nd set sat in their garden listening over the fence to you. Highly recommend to anyone else thinking about having you over.
Darren Goddard, Family Party, Essex

"Thanks for a fab evening of music. Really enjoyed it!"
Linda Hegarty Zgorzalek, Hotel Event, London

"Was there tonight u was amazing! We want you for our wedding!"
Siobhan Serrant, Zenxi Restaurant, Essex

"Truly amazing!"
Vicky Louise De Witt, Brickyard Bar & Grill, London

"We really can't praise Ben highly enough but we will try. We first heard Ben play on a night out with friends in a local pub, we were blown away and booked him instantly. It turns out we couldn't possibly have made a better decision; on top of being an excellent musician and singer (silky smooth voice with a hint of rock star edge) with a broad repertoire that reflects his excellent taste in music, he is also one of the nicest and most relaxed people we have ever had the pleasure to meet. He could not have been more helpful and even offered to learn tracks that weren't on his list. We are now firm friends and we will be following him to gigs until our 60th Wedding anniversary."
Wedding, London
