Ben Waters’ performances are sensational – he has played with the legends of rock ‘n’ roll – Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Davies and all the Rolling Stones.
Jools Holland, the UK’s top music TV presenter wrote in the Mail on Sunday that Ben Waters is one of the best pianists of all time.
Boogie4Stu, Ben’s tribute album to the late Ian Stewart, founder of The Rolling Stones, features Jools Holland, PJ Harvey and the Rolling Stones. The album, with cover painted by Sir Peter Blake of Sergeant Pepper fame, has raised many thousands of pounds for the British Heart Foundation and topped Rock ‘n’ Roll and Blues charts worldwide. The ABC&D of Boogie Woogie – Axel Zwingenberger, Ben Waters, Charlie Watts and Dave Green, launched their new album, ABC&D of Boogie Woogie Live in Paris, at The Lincoln Center in New York last year and then appeared for four nights at Les Paul’s Iridium Club on Broadway.
Ben has played all over the world at many venues and festivals, including Cork Jazz Festival, and with Ray Davies at his Meltdown Festival at the Royal Festival Hall last year.
Ben will be performing music from Boogie4Stu as well as rock ‘n’ roll, boogie woogie, blues and ground–breaking original numbers.
Bar drinks can be brought into the studio for this event.
