Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up can come as a straight up piano trio with bass and drums, or alternatively book a piano and bass duo.

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

We're very happy to accommodate changes as we know it's important for you to get your event right. If there is any significant extra amount of playing required, we may require a top-up fee to account for this, but we'll always go for minimum hassle!

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

Absolutely. We can play music through our system either of a similar genre to what we play, or a mix of any other genres desired! And this doesn't cost any extra!

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally we need at least an hour to set up plus time to remove any cases we have with us to an appropriate space, and any time required to get 'out of the way' before event guests arrived, if that is necessary!

Can you roam around while you perform?

Roaming around with a full-size keyboard, drum kit and double bass tends to be a little tricky . . .

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

We're very happy to consider accommodating any requests you may have for what we play. A typical list of the kinds of songs we play can be viewed on our profile here.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

A simple PA to fill a small to medium sized venue for background music can be supplied by us; for large venues catering to over 250 people as background or foreground, we would need to charge an additional PA hire fee for us to bring the right equipment.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Unless the song requested is in fact a movement from Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Concerto – yes, there's a good chance we could play a song requested in our style, with adequate (at least two weeks') notice.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our ability to merge into the background and provide ambience – but to impress audiences with musical skill where appropriate.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Queen Elizabeth Hall, the Ashtead Jazz Club, numerous garden parties and weddings . . .

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

The trios of Bill Evans, John Taylor, Brad Mehldau, Chick Corea, Marco Marconi, Aaron Parks and more.

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

The most 'high' profile gig might have been performed on the 24th floor of the Shard for a corporate Christmas drinks event!

Ben and the trio were excellent. His communication before the event was efficient and he put us at ease, and their playing was absolutely spectacular. Nothing but positive feedback -- I would highly recommend them!

Thanks so much, I’ve had numerous comments that your jazz trio set the whole ambience and it was perfect for our client Christmas drinks.

Ben provided an excellent and appropriate programme of quality music for my wife’s 40th birthday party. All the musicians were friendly, professional and extremley competent – and even took requests! We’ll happily book again.
