Features

What songs the band plays

Mr Ben have been trusted to entertain guests at Christmas party's for over 10 years and are able to create a fun atmosphere filling the dancefloor with energetic guests while allowing others to sit back and enjoy the show.
The music the band in December and New Years Eve is taken from the songs listed below with a few festive songs thrown in for good measure. Unless requested we will play a set to keep all ages and personalities happy. We will choose all up-tempo tunes that we know have the dancefloor full and will avoid very heavy numbers.
