We had the number 1 best time! Ben performs refreshing originals and catchy covers, involving us audience with a comedic and energetic stage presence, including expressive sign language. For sure, I'll go to his other shows around Salt Lake: www.benbrinton.com
He's easy to communicate with beforehand and we didn't have to worry about the music. He took care of it seamlessly.
We had Ben play during the cocktail hour of our corporate event and he did not disappoint! He arrived early to setup, stayed right on time with our previously discussed, and helped create an awesome ambiance for the event. Would definitely hire him again if we head back to Salt Lake in the future!
Ben was an awesome addition to our backyard BBQ! He was interactive and great with a crowd. The songs he played were excellent and his performance was definitely the highlight of the night! He is also very friendly and personable and I highly reccomend him for any event!
Response from Ben Brinton:
It was an ideal event to be a part of! Great group of people to share music with.
Ben was awesome as a performer. On time, played great songs. Was able to guage the mood of the room. He also brought along another performer for some duos. My group LOVED him! Thanks, Ben!
We used Ben for my husband's 40th birthday party. It was a dinner party out in our backyard and Ben was a fantastic addition. He arrived early, was set up with time to spare, played a fun set of music, has a pleasant and likable personality and stayed later than scheduled as the party was still rolling.
We would definitely use him again and again!
Great solo performer. Ben's looping pedal and 12 string guitar creates a bigger sound than one person alone can usually provide. Great talent!

What to Expect
I come fully equipped with an impressive sound-system that can fit in a variety of small spaces. It also serves as a sound-system for YOU should you want to play things in and iPod, or make announcements and toasts, etc.
Set-up and Break-down typically takes 30 minutes each, which means I'd arrive early (one hour prior to music) and leave around an hour later. With a long set, I ask for one (1) 15 minute break every hour. This allows me to get a drink and use the restroom, etc. During that period I'd happily play any music you can provide on your own music player (iPod, etc. anything that takes a universal AUX connection.)
From Salt Lake City, Utah experience a refreshing and entertaining acoustic rock performance with an impressive mix of covered songs from a wide spectrum of time periods and genres, as well as original works ( available on Spotify and iTunes.) My 12-string guitar, with chunky heart-warming rhythm and mindful lyrics aims to please in the most professional of circumstances. I hope you will consider me for your event.
