Services From Ben Playford Trio
The Ben Playford trio are a vocal led piano ensemble that specialises in playing well-known tunes from the jazz and blues repertoire. They play everything from ballads to bossa's, blues to up-tempo swing numbers. They provide a perfect backdrop to a civilised meal or wedding reception drinks but can also get people on to the dancefloor for evening entertainment. They can also offer play as a duo if your event requires a quieter atmosphere.
