Benjamin Burton Music
Benj Burton is a brilliant drummer and keyboard player. We have played many times over a number of years. He is funky and has a great groove which makes our band sound brilliant. Also he has everything you need in a professional musician. He’s reliable, friendly and a definite bonus to have on the team. Highly recommended.
