About Ben

Singing guitarist based in Surrey. Playing some of the best rock, pop and sing-a-long covers.
Singing guitarist

Born and raised in Surrey, I have been playing guitar and singing for over 15 years. With plenty of experience performing live, I have built up a repertoire specialising in performing some of the best rock, pop and sing-a-long songs. I am an easy-going guy who is happy to make sure you get the performance and event you are after. I can provide my own P.A and lighting, The only thing I need is a power supply, people and good vibes. So you can sit back, relax (rock) and enjoy the show.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will always try to be flexible and understanding if your timings need to change. If timings do need to change please just let me know as soon as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes of course. There will be an extra charge based on the amount of time you need this for but please get in contact with what you need and we will get you a customised quote.

How much time do you need to set up?

A normal set up of the PA system is 1 hour, and this includes a quick warm up.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

The set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, I'm definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes absolutely! The only thing I needs is power supply and enough space to perform. However an entirely acoustic set is also an option, but this may limit the song choices.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn then I am more than are happy to do this for you, as long as it's possible.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The great music!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Multiple weddings, both indoor and outdoor. As well as pubs, clubs and other entertainment venues.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

All types of Rock and Metal from past to present.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have experience performing in the west end theatres as a child, but I now enjoys playing rock music at weddings and other venues.

Excellent show. Ben played songs that encouraged everyone to the dance floor, and was a perfect fit for our end of season party.

Ben was great for our Caravan and Motorhome rally, and everyone really enjoyed themselves! He had a great mix of music, and we'd love to book him again.
