A combination of the warm and relaxed tone of Dean Martin, pizzazz of Sammy Davis Jnr, youthful exuberance of Michael Buble, and masterful delivery of Frank Sinatra. Add a shot of Bobby Darin and a smooth stroke of Nat King Cole and you've got the voice of Ben Smith.
Performing a vast array of hits from the golden age of big-band swing, Rat Pack crooner Ben Smith channels the effortless cool of Sammy Davis Jnr, Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, but with the modern appeal of artists like Michael Buble.
Whether it’s playing with a live band or to a specially arranged backing track, Ben uses his easy charm and winning stage presence to put on a thoroughly entertaining show. Perfect for the cruise market, but equally good for corporate events and private parties too, he’s an all-round entertainer that’s sure to delight any audience.
“Smooth, smart swing crooner Ben Smith waxed lyrical regarding the history of the American song book and sang some great songs. Cruise ship appeal certainly and, with no backing musicians present, the handsome Smith performed with some suitably big band-led backing tracks. Good use of the stage too from this promising swing merchant.”
Ben is proving a big hit in the many venues he has worked for JBE
