Ben - Drums

I always did love the drums, but focus on sport at a young age prevented me from following the dream. I started working full time at the age of 18 and guess what I bought… I’ve been playing drums for over 10 years and its been a journey! Most of this time was spent in London, UK between 2001 and 2009. I’ve met some amazing people, played with some incredible musicians and performed at venues I never thought would be possible. Previous bands include Noah (Now ‘MONROE’), In the Cut and We Writers. I’m looking forward to making you all dance with ‘The New Ages’. It’s gonna be a blast. B
