Ben and his quartet were awesome! Great to work with and great performers. I hired them as our cocktail band for our wedding and they really made it come to life. People raved about their performance. Awesome job! Thanks so much, Ben!
Benjamin and his trio played our wedding cocktail hour and dinner. They were simply amazing and left everyone speechless. We received so many compliments for them and everyone wanted to know how I found such an awesome musician(s). The crowd even demanded an encore! I would highly highly recommend Benjamin for any event. They were punctual, professional and the music spoke for itself.

What to Expect
Punctuality, low maintenance, professionalism and quality performance. Audiences always leave happy from one of our performers, from children to the elderly. We can perform jazz, funk, soul, New Orleans street music, and anything else that will want you to get on your feet and move to the beat! At the same time we have the control to play at low volumes so set the ambience of a room in quiet, more serious situations. Most importantly we are versatile.
