Client Testimonials


I knew that Ben was an excellent musician and singer having seen him play many times before but we were after a little more than that. We asked Ben to not just play and sing but to host an evening of music at our wedding, inviting others up to play and facilitating our very own open mic session. This was a massive ask without knowing the musical abilities of our guests and with very little instruction from us - but Ben was a star! The evening was totally unforgettable, Ben's charm, talent and friendly nature meant that everyone was encouraged to get involved and Ben knew exactly what to play and sing to get our guests involved. Our wedding day was enriched by Ben's involvement and our guests are still asking about him now!!! Thank you Ben - A perfect evening of music and entertainment

Stuart and Louise Colam

Hi Ben, me and Rebecca would just like to thank yourself and the rest of the band members for making the night just as perfect as the day. I hope you enjoyed yourselves also, lots of people have commented how good the band was and we couldn't of asked for anything better. A truly great performance and i'll tell anyone who will listen how fantastic you all were! Once again from me and my wife, thankyou.

Terry and Rebecca

Hi Ben, I wanted to drop you a note to say a HUGE thank you for helping to create such a fabulous night for Matt and Gem. I headed off around 11pm so not too sure if it was a civilised ending to the evening!!!! But it's great working with you guys knowing that all is going to be great and lets me get on with other things throughout the day! Looking forward to working with you on super exciting projects in the future.

Alexis Walker

Well back to work and reality for us both today! All the planning and stress for one day seemed totally worth it given the outcome - a fantastic day which really could not have gone better! The entertainment was superb, Ben was a delight on the day and we can only add to the accolades given by his previous events. Very easy going, he just got on with it with no fuss, Everybody loved his music and we have had plenty of positive comments and questions about him! Ben played to the party and the occasion and he judges these things very well. Only slight regret is that we did not have his services all night through! The last track - our first dance, Ben nailed this totally and it really was a nice touch and a fitting end to his second set. We would use him again without hesitation! Also, thanks to yourself for guiding us through this. Having not booked an artist before this, you made the process very comfortable and easy to understand. Regards, Brett

Julie Bates 50th Birthday Party - Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire

Please pass on a big thank you to Ben. what a remarkable singer he is! All our guests were really impressed with his performance. He was very accommodating especially as the weather was so bad and agreed to be outside which added to the atmosphere as we were able to keep our guests outside in the garden despite the rain. I would certainly recommend him to my friends and colleagues and thank you to you also for your help!

Ben and the band were amazing! Ben did a fantastic job on the day time and on the nightime, everybody was up dancing. The lead singer had a fantastic voice.

Charlie Merrett's 40th Birthday Party, The Victoria, Sheen, London

Ben was excellent! So much so we asked him to stay longer as everyone was enjoying his music so much. We were very impressed by his voice and musical ability and we would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding guitarist. Many of our guests said how great he was and asked us how we found him so I wouldn't be surprised if you get some referrals from the evening as a few of our friends are getting married next year! For me he was definitely one of my best bookings on the day and definitely worth the money! Thanks once again for all you help.

Rachel & Jon's Wedding Reception, Longstowe Hall, Cambridge

We had a fabulous day and Ben more than met our expectations. He was fantastic and really added an extra something to the celebrations. Although we had imagined a quite quiet chilled out evening, he turned it into a party and had people dancing round the firepit. We've had loads of people asking where we found him - he was so good - so will point them in your direction!

Lizzie & David's Wedding Reception, Hall Barn, Beaconsfield

Ben was great - great music and a great guy! He made the party swing and we are happy to recommend him for sure!

As General Manager of the Jam House, I am responsible for the booking of the entertainment at both the Birmingham & Edinburgh sites, as well as the day-to-day operation of the Live Music venue, restaurant & bar in Birmingham. The venue trades to a mature audience (certainly Over-25s), open to the public five days a week, as well as regularly to private clients.

Ben Drummond will often perform at the Jam House and also assists me with placing other musicians on the weekly roster. A musician of virtuosity, Ben will play as smooth solo artiste on acoustic guitar, and range to leading a six piece band playing strong accessible party classics. Ben has a good understanding of the audience and can tailor his show to the crowd's needs & requirements. I have known Ben for approximately ten years.

I would recommend Ben for his musical talent and skill with presenting to a range of audiences. I would also recommend him for his ability to plan & organise his shows. He is very reliable. Ben organizes the roster for a monthly "Acoustic Sessions" event, liaising with local and national artistes, performs at these nights and presents the show. Ben is my first choice always to provide the entertainment for the corporate and private hires, able to cover a range of musical themes and styles to match the booker's needs.

I would whole-heartedly recommend Ben to you for any musical performances you may require.

John Bunce - The Jamhouse

Ben Drummond has been an integral part in creating an effective pre-show experience for our customers at the LG Arena.

His numerous performances in Forum Live have always been of the highest quality and he has never failed to draw in a large and captivated crowd with his unfaltering vocals and remarkable guitar playing skills.

It's not only Ben's musicianship and ability to delight an audience that have had us book him over and over again, it's also his professionalism and versatility when tailoring his sets to certain audiences. Not many artists could perform a set before both a Red Hot Chilli Peppers show and an Andrea Bocelli show and still have the crowds as entertained as Ben has.

When it came to choosing an artist to take down to the Savoy in London for our annual 'Promoters Lunch', Ben was the undisputed choice to play in front of our most important clients and everyone came back from that event raving about Ben's performance.

Charlotte Smith - Sales Executive at The lg arena, The Nec group.

I recently used Ben Drummond for a Corporate Networking Event, pitching the entertainment at the right level was critical and Ben did this perfectly! I would definitely recommend Ben and would definitely use him again! Thank you Ben!

Andrea Law, Goldman Sach - Corporate Event

Ben has been an invaluable contact since relocating my band from Kent to the Midlands. With multiple dates at The Jam House and Ben's 'Roots Festival' I've witnessed firsthand his consistenly excellent roster choices and his humbling ability to treat all artists with respect and kindness.

Tess Of The Circle - BBC Radio 2 featured artist

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Ben Drummond as a first class guitarist and vocalist.

I have known Ben for 7 years during which time I have personally booked him to perform at a number of high class events. His virtuosic standard on both guitar and vocals as well as his ability to communicate and entertain his audience has always resulted in many positive comments and requests for his return.

Ben has always displayed a high degree of integrity, responsibility, and ambition. He is certainly a leader rather than a follower which he has demonstrated in all his musical achievements.

Ben is still the first choice for me and my team and I am happy to give him my wholehearted endorsement.

Carl Lewis - Principle, Newhall Academy of Music & Media

Ben Drummond is a fantastic multi instrumentalist who is as at home playing and singing to vast crowds or hosting a successful event as he is navigating a modern recording session. His knowledge of music genres is exemplary, and he is a beautiful, exceptional human being with high moral codes. It's a real pleasure to know him and his music.

Gavin Monahan - Music Producer

I've know about Ben Drummond since he popped up on a project I ran in 2009/10, documenting local musicians for the British Library. The project was curated by local music industry professionals, and Ben's contribution was an outstanding intelligent piece. Since then I've watched him perform in a range of line-ups. In addition to being and exceptionally able and knowledgeable musician, it's clear to me that he understands audiences just as well as he understands the musicians he works with.

When he books musicians for gigs, he has an accurate idea of what they can achieve, and places the right musicians in the best situations. When he plays live, his ability to work with enormously diverse audiences is hugely impressive. I really can't think of anyone who combines all this ability and knowledge across such a wide creative range, in such a professional way. He is one of a kind, an asset to our region; I expect him to do great things.
