Ben's performance was ideal for the party.

5 stars - Ben Harrison are Highly Recommended booked Ben Harrison for their event at Claverham village hall in Somerset

“Ben's performance was ideal for the party. people were able to talk amongst themselves whilst Ben was playing, and those that wanted to could sit and listen to him. I did ask Ben beforehand if he minded people talking during his performance and he didn't mind at all, in fact it was what he expected at such an event. With no vocals it was ideal as a background. Several of the guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music.”
