I love what I do. It's not just a job but a real passion for me. Music drives my body and when people watch, they feel what I feel and that is what it's all about. Making people feel something. Coming to the show feeling one way and leaving feeling another! Let's work and do what we love, let play some good music!
Ben is an amazing drummer in every facet. He is not only capable of playing any genre of music at the highest level,but he is dependable and a great person to know. Most talented people who play on that level can be difficult to deal with given the egos. Ben was my drummer and Musical Director on multiple of occasions and the artist and management were always raving about his quality and commitment to the shows and projects we were working on. I've also come to learn how talented of a music producer Ben is. He is able to play multiple instruments to truly give any great artist the highest level of production with a unique sound. I would encourage any one considering hiring or working with Ben to do so now before he is to expensive to afford.
