Ben Waters

Ben Waters’ name has become synonymous with excellent musicianship and performance. Jools Holland, in the Mail on Sunday, (12/06/2011) described Ben as being one of his favourite ten pianists in history and asked him to perform at his wedding

He is proud to count many of the legends of boogie woogie and rock ‘n roll his colleagues and friends, having played alongside Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry; The Rolling Stones; Shakin’ Stevens; Procul Harum; Mick Hucknall, Ray Davies, Jools Holland, and many others.

Travelling the world for over 20 years, Ben’s reputation as an internationally acclaimed musician was learned the hard way – playing in every imaginable type of venue from the bottom of whisky vats to the Royal Albert Hall and the Royal Festival Hall where he and his band were selected by Ray Davies as one of his 12 favourite bands to perform at his Meltdown Festival.
