Ben – Bongo Player


Live, solo and electronic percussionist BONGO BEN has been a key feature performing on the UK and International club circuit for over 6 years across nightclubs, festivals, pool parties and more. Ben’s impressive CV includes the likes of Ushuaia supporting Tinie Tempah, Space Ibiza, Hard Rock Hotel, Cavalli Club and Nikki Beach Marbella, White Dubai, Toyroom and Movida Dubai as well as Pacha London to name a few.
 
Venues aside, the live musician and Lovejuice resident can claim appearances at V Festival 2015 & 2016 with Mixmag where his set was streamed live on Capital FM, We Are FSTVL 2015 & 2016, ADE Amsterdam and even exclusively at the 2012 London Olympic Games…
 
Ben’s percussion set ups for his performances include a Roland electronic percussion pad that offers over 800 different percussion sounds without taking up the room these usual accessories would.

Standard Length of Performance:
 
Ben can perform for anywhere between 1.5 – 3 hours.
 
Technical Requirements:
 
On all events Ben simply requires 1 mains input and 1 XLR or Jack input (nearly all can be found on most DJ mixers) Ben will supply his own microphone or wireless microphone system along with XLR lead and receiver box. His electronic percussion pad also requires the same input. If using his ‘walkabout bongos’ Ben doesn’t require any specific area. If using his electronic set up, just a 1.5m x 1.5m area would be sufficient.
