Lead vocals and acoustic rhythm guitar in 2 London based country music set ups ; )

I have been playing music around the world since age 11. From touring with championship brass bands on drums and percussion, to playing rhythm guitar and singing lead vocals in a Johnny Cash tribute band. I have a vast experience in playing functions across the UK both on drums and guitar, and I have cut my teeth with original rock / metal bands, private tuition, solo performances, depping, clubs, contests and everything in between. Country music is my heart, yet I love all genres of music that makes me move emotionally or physically. I'm known for being approachable, reliable, up front and honest; whilst staying professional and selecting musicians of high caliber with the same attitude as I to play along side with in the groups I'm with now. Please check out the different groups above for precise contact or more information - and feel free to get in touch! Cheers!

I’m a clothing brand owner who often drinks at Slim Jim’s liquor store and one day I came through the doors to the sound of ‘A boy named sue’ and thought.. I need to get up front and see this! After watching the show I knew I had to see bootliquor again as I missed half the show! We booked them for the brands 6th birthday show and they delivered and more! From Hank to Johnny they were amazing and great with the crowd! Loved every second of it and I'm Damn sure I wern't the only one!!

Amazing musicians, awesome stage performance and great setlist. From a venue booker and promoter point of view, The Bootliquor Collective is a safe bet when you are looking for a band to create a good atmosphere and bring the people close to the stage. Ben's voice surrounds everyone and the band does the rest. I was told by a couple of customers that The Bootliquor Collective was the best country covers band they've seen.
