As a solo artist, I specialize in Colorado destination weddings and other intimate events in the state and around the globe. Often incorporating loop pedals and extended performance techniques, I truly enjoy providing the energy and variety of a full band or DJ with the pricing and space considerations of a single performer. If a larger, more intricate production is in your plans, I work with an amazing assortment of band members including horns, strings, percussion, and much more.
My performances are improvised and passionate, shaping themselves in real-time to suit you and your guests, whether that be a romantic ceremony, relaxing over cocktails, or dancing the night away! My services are well suited for clients who are passionate about live music, and who are seeking a fun and memorable way to enhance their celebration. Wherever you might be in your planning, please reach out by email for more info. Let's make some music!
“ Ben was such a wonderful addition to our special day! We had a small wedding at Chautauqua Park, he was there before me (the bride!) and played for our guests before the wedding. He played mine and my husbands song ... and a lesser known song we threw at him last minute after we were married. It was truly great! “
“ I was extremely stressed looking for a band for our wedding, but we stumbled across Ben at a brewery one night. He is so talented!!! When we found out he did weddings we were totally stoked! ...Ben really enjoys what he does and it really brings the fun into his crowd! Thank you Ben & Mike! “
“ The number 1 question we got asked was, "Where did you find this guy?" Ben exceeded our expectation in every single way. He was so much fun. He played to the crowd, had great energy and just blew us away... We genuinely could not have asked for better music at our wedding. Incredible! ”
“ Ben is beyond wonderful in so many ways! He was so helpful in the communication beforehand – picking out songs, understanding the flow of the day, etc. He knows the perfect songs to play for all the right moods, and does great mashups between songs too! “
“ Ben is a class act from start to finish... a very talented musician with a gift for “mash ups”, looping and improvisation that keeps the audience engaged from beginning to end. And I don’t think I ever see him not smiling! We are so grateful we met Ben, he made our day more than amazing! “
“ Ben was the highlight of our evening. Everyone had an amazing time and kept asking us where we found him! I am so glad we went with Ben instead of a DJ, he added so much life to our party. Can’t thank him enough, he is a wonderful artist! “
“ Great music selections performed very, very well. Took requests from guests and played all. Ben has a friendly personality and is a professional as well. “
“ Ben and his drummer were the best!!! Three hours of music and he had everyone dancing the entire time- just what we wanted. All of our guests raved to us about how good the music was after. Ben was also super easy to work with and made the whole process a breeze. I would highly, highly recommend! Don’t even think about getting a dj. “
“ Ben Hammond and saxophone player, Tyler, were the hit of the party!! I'm looking to have another event just so they can perform -- truly professional and so much fun. We are still talking about their great performance! “
“ Ben, where do we even begin! YOU and NIC ARE STILL BEING TALKED ABOUT!!! You made our wedding reception what it was and we couldn't have asked for anything more. You had the guests up and dancing the whole night!!! Prompt. Thorough. Timely. Professional. AND A WHOLE LOTTA FUN!!! “
“ Ben and his trio were absolutely amazing! Ben was a pleasure to work with and... helped us get exactly what we needed for our special event. He is truly a talented musician and was without a doubt the highlight of the night. “
“ Ben Hammond and his trio were a wonderful addition to our daughter's wedding. He was beyond PROFESSIONAL, prompt in his response leading up to wedding [and] volume was perfect for our reception. He ALWAYS had a smile on his face [and] was a joy to work with. Thank you for your impeccable level of service and your exceptional musical talent. “
“ Ben Hammond is an outstanding musician with a very unique and personal style that added so much character to our special day. He was able to take classic songs and add a fun new twist to them while catering the style of the playing to the specific parts of our wedding. He was very organized and stayed exactly on schedule with all of the steps of our big day. “
“ Ben was absolutely amazing to work with. We had him play for our ceremony and cocktail hour and the music was hands down amazing... In the chaos of weddings it was so nice having that be an easy thing. I would recommend Ben to anyone that wants live music. “
“ We hired Ben to play at our client appreciation event. He was fun to work with before and during the event, was a great communicator, arrived ahead of schedule, and played the perfect music for the occasion! On top of his musical talents, Ben is friendly, personable, and brought great energy to our event. Thank you for making the night so special! “
“ Ben is awesome and so easy to work with! It was perfect background music during our ceremony and he aced our timing. He played upbeat music for cocktail hour and introduced us as Mr. & Mrs. before starting our playlist for the rest of the night. “
“ Ben Hammond really was the BEST EVER just like the rating says. Can't tell you how many guests were raving about the talent of Ben and the two guys he brought along to accompany him! Not only did he provide great music for the ceremony, his dance tunes really got everyone moving. “
