Ben Waters is one of Jools Hollands all-time favourite piano players. He’s performed with Ronnie Wood at the Royal Albert Hall and for Ray Davies’ Meltdown Festival in the Royal Festival Hall – in fact he’s been invited to take his distinctive boogie-woogie style piano-playing to events all around the world.
His talent as a pianist was wrought through a remarkable apprenticeship – which saw him work with the legendary great of rock n’ roll. The Rolling Stones, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jools Holland and Shakin’ Stevens – have all helped to hone his natural talent on the keys.
His six-piece band – which plays a fantastic selection of rock n’ roll, blues and boogie numbers - includes his own teenaged son amongst its members. Saxophonist Tom Waters steals the show wherever they go – whether they’re performing in Memphis or New Milton.
