Born in Nottingham, Ben studied with Jan Kopinski, George Carmichael, Sheryl Bailey and Mike Hall before embarking on a career that has seen him perform with Kenny Wheeler, Andy Sheppard, Jim Mullen, Gilbert ‘O’ Sullivan, Tina May, Groove Armada, Jimmy James and Clem Curtis. He was also MD for Decca recording artist Natalie Duncan.

This gig sees Ben reunited with two of his old collaborators, Pat McCarthy (Guitar) and Warren Jolly (Bass).
