Testimonials

"Ben really set a great scene and mood for our party. Would book him again in a heartbeat"
Joanna Hamilton, Central London, Office private party
"Ben is a truly remarkable musician and performer. He is equally skilled as a musical technician and also a humorous entertainer, able to connect with people from any demographic. Ben has been a highly valued member of Radio Club Band over the last few years, always striving to make each and every event one to remember for all present. He will greatly missed and we wish him well with his future endeavours overseas."
Josh Boyd, Booking Agent/Performer, Radio Club Band
“Ben is a rare talent; an excellent singer,a mind-blowing guitarist, always professional and a first-class human being. Don't give it a second thought, book him NOW!”
Graham Hobon, Performer and Seven-time ABIA Award winner
"Ben is undoubtedly one supremely talented musician. I recommend taking any chance you get to see Ben perform to experience a live performance you won't forget in a hurry. Their music is guaranteed to move you and get under your skin in an enjoyable way. His vibrant blend of blues and superb rock is a definite ear pleaser."
Jae Salmon, Radio Presenter and Music Critic/Reviewer
"Two and a half years ago, my (then) fiancée and I were enjoying a Sunday Session while catching up with friends. We heard this solo artist playing in the background who grabbed our attention very quickly. Chantelle and I both knew, straight away, we needed to talk to this guy about playing at our wedding. After the set, we met Ben and he was a true professional. Taking the time to get to know us and finding out what we are looking for. We booked him on-the-spot for our wedding. In the lead up, Ben was full of assistance and took care of absolutely everything in terms of song selections, set up etc. Chantelle's best friend wanted to sing just 1 song at our wedding. I asked Ben if he wouldn't mind learning a song to play while she sang. 'No dramas at all' was Bens response. The night of our wedding was absolutely faultless and this is partly due to Ben's ultimate professionalism. Two years on, we still keep in touch with Ben and go to watch him play, and as always, he will always find the time to have a chat and catch up. We could not recommend Ben more highly for any event/function you have planned".
Trent Collet, Wedding Client
"Having stumbled on Ben at the Broadbeach Blues festival I had my heart set on having his band come and play at my 50th birthday party in November 2014. The band did not let us down with the 120+ crowd of mixed age really appreciating the mix of classic blues rock and funky originals. The guys were the focus of the night playing numerous sets and people who had let me know they could only stay a short while cancelled their other commitments and stuck around till the last note rang out. Everyone was totally blown away and kids to oldies had a great night,a fantastic and memorable night is all I can say. Ben and the band were professional and a pleasure to deal with in every way. Thanks guys."
Joachim Odlander, Managing director Gobotech Pty
I've known Ben since 2012 in my capacity as a Brisbane musician, band manager, and booking agent. In that time, on a personal level I've known him as one of the best and hardest working musicians in town. His original band is a well respected mainstay, and without fail he's displayed a hard-working, professional attitude towards gigs. His calendar is known for the handful of dates every month that he's NOT playing. I'm sure he sleeps, but I haven't yet figured out when. Specific to bookings I've been responsible for, namely with weddings & functions band Radio Club, I've never hesitated to book Ben as a priority, and he's never been in a situation he couldn't not only handle, but completely own. He's known for putting in the extra to make the evening a success. He's had amazing feedback from literally dozens of clients, and was always in very high demand when showcasing with us. He presents well and conducts himself in a professional and experienced manner. He's the type of musician to make a grown man cry, not only a guitarist of immensely hefty weight and dimension, but also a fantastic singer, songwriter, and witty bandleader. A triple threat in the true sense! To any prospective employers or prospectors, if you're reading this because you're considering whether Ben's made of the right stuff for your gigs, all I can say is, he's your man.
Quinn McHugh, Booking agent/Performer Radio Club Band
"We met Ben at a local gig by chance. My fiancé and I looked at each other half way through his first set and mutually agreed we need to have him at our wedding as a solo guitarist/ singer. We approached him there and then and from that pint to our wedding day on October 1st, 2011, got to a number of his venues where he regularly played. Ben is a professional musician in every sense of the word. His covers are high-end and sharp. His originals are unique in sound and catchy. He is HIGHLY recommended. Have him at your next function and you'll have your guests asking for his details. Ben is a great guy who we will miss dearly from the Brisbane, Queensland scene."
Michael Cooper, Owner operator, Regenar8 Fitness
"My husband and I would just like to thank Ben for playing at our wedding in Bristol on May 1st! He was absolutely fantastic! We had so many people tell us how great he was. Ben was extremely professional and we can't thank him enough for making our day so perfect. He was very easy going and friendly, my only regret is that I didn't get a chance to speak to him as much as I would have liked to! Thankyou Ben! We will definitely be recommending you to friends and family :) Kind regards, Lizzie and John
Lizzie Claridge, Wedding Client, Bristol, England
