WHAT PEOPLE SAY
TOM ION / THE SOUL ESTABLISHMENT
BEN IS AN INCREDIBLE DRUMMER! HE CAME IN AT VERY SHORT NOTICE AND PERFORMED WITH THE SOUL ESTABLISHMENT, WE WOULD HAVE HAD HIM IN THE BAND ON A PERMANENT BASIS. WE NEEDED SOMEONE WHO WAS NOT ONLY VERSATILE, HAD GREAT POCKET AND GROOVE BUT SOMEONE WHO COULD WORK WELL WITH THE GROUP AND BEN FITTED RIGHT IN. CANADA HAVE STOLEN A GREAT DRUMMER
CODY CHRISTIAN / CARNIVAL CRUISELINE
BEN HELD THE GROOVE TOGETHER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT. HIS TIME IS IMPECCABLE AND HIS GROOVE IS SWEET, BUT TIGHT. AS A BAND MEMBER I COULD ALWAYS COUNT ON BEN TO BE PREPARED AND READY FOR ANY CHANGES. HIS ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND LEVEL OF SKILL MAKES HIM ONE OF THE BEST DRUMMERS I'VE WORKED WITH.
BEN LOBBAN / THE APOLLOS WEDDING BAND
I PLAYED WITH BEN NEARLY EVERY WEEKEND FOR THREE YEARS. HIS ABILITY TO ADD LITTLE INTRICACIES TO A GROOVE ALWAYS ASTOUNDED ME. IT WAS JUST AS ENTERTAINING TO HEAR HIM PLAY A SIMPLE 4/4 ROCK BEAT AS IT WAS TO HEAR HIM LET LOOSE WITH DRUM FILLS BECAUSE OF THESE SUBTLETIES IN HIS PLAYING.
KATHRYN SMITH / KP SMITH
BEN CAME ON BOARD TO JOIN MY BAND (SOMEWHAT LAST MINUTE), AND HE IMPRESSED ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. HE WAS SO PREPARED AT OUR FIRST PRACTICE, AND CAME INTO THE ROOM WITH A PLAYFUL AND FOCUSSED ENERGY. I WENT INTO THE PERFORMANCE FEELING CONFIDENT. THIS WAS SO MUCH BECAUSE OF BEN'S WORK AND KIND, FUN APPROACH TO MUSIC. 10/10
