The Ben Ward Big Band

The Ben Ward Big Band is a high-energy 20-piece jazz orchestra comprised of talented music students and top professional players. The band was formed in February 2018 and regularly performs challenging charts to sell-out audiences. Check below for our next gig - tickets sell fast so don't miss out!

The band is also available to hire for events ranging from business conferences to weddings. We can supply anything from the full 20-piece band down to a duo or trio - get in touch for a personalised quote.

"I booked the Ben Ward Big Band for a corporate awards ceremony – they were professional from start to finish. The band arrived early and were very accommodating when we needed them to play additional songs (as our guests took a little longer to enter the room than planned!). Most importantly they sounded great, and were exactly what we’d hoped for to bring our event to life."
