Ben went the extra mile for us. He found us a solo singer before the event. He also set up a rehearsal beforehand to ensure that everything went smoothly. His music selections were perfect for our memorial service.

Mr. Stough is a seasoned pro and it shows. He arrived early for our private dinner party, dressed in suit and tie, started on time, played exactly the kind of music we had in mind, and was the perfect gentleman.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I charge $100 per event hour. This covers the time to travel to the event, get set up and breakdown after the event, then travel home.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We agree on the time and place for the event, the equipment needed, and if other musicians are needed (they will be paid the same fee as me). Typically a musician is paid prior to performing, in cash or check (I also take Paypal in advance). During the event, I am open to suggestions if a different genre of music is better suited. I can provide a mic for toasts, roasts, and good cheer. I can even take on guests singers with no rehearsal (no promises as to the outcome).

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I earned my bachelor's and master's degrees in music from the Manhattan School of Music in New York City.
