As General Manager of the Jam House, I am responsible for the booking of the entertainment at both the Birmingham & Edinburgh sites, as well as the day-to-day operation of the Live Music venue, restaurant & bar in Birmingham. The venue trades to a mature audience (certainly Over-25s), open to the public five days a week, as well as regularly to private clients. Ben Drummond will often perform at the Jam House. A musician of virtuosity, Ben will play as smooth solo artiste on acoustic guitar, and range to leading a six piece band playing strong accessible party classics. Ben has a good understanding of the audience and can tailor his show to the crowd's needs & requirements. I have known Ben for approximately ten years. I would recommend Ben for his musical talent and skill with presenting to a range of audiences. I would also recommend him for his ability to plan & organise his shows. He is very reliable. Ben is my first choice always to provide the entertainment for the corporate and private hires, able to cover a range of musical themes and styles to match the booker's needs. I would whole-heartedly recommend Ben to you for any musical performances you may require - John Bunce - The Jamhouse
