Ben Maggs Reviews

Craig & Charlie Reid, The Proclaimers – “talented and very engaging.”

Garry Christian, Lead Singer/Song Writer with The Christians – “We always ask Ben if he wants to guest on our gigs.  He’s really understated but brilliant.  His songs have depth and feeling but are free flowing and mesmeric.  I really hope he gets the recognition he deserves, but at the same time will be sad to lose our favourite ‘guest artist’.”

Chris Farlowe [Out of Time, Handbags & Gladrags]  “If that kid gets the breaks he is going to make it to the top”

Alison Young, Head of Programming & Producing at The Stables, Milton Keynes“Ben Maggs played an outstanding set in support of The Christians, receiving rapturous applause from the 400 capacity audience who had joined him in song by the end of the set – one of the best responses we have seen to an up and coming young artist at The Stables, MK”

Jenna Harvey – Operations Manager at Stratford Arts House, Stratford Upon Avon “Ben was incredible and a real hit with the audience. The full house arrived in good time to experience Ben’s set and they were not disappointed which was evident during the interval when Ben’s CD sales rocketed. With an enchanting voice and heartfelt lyrics, Ben really struck a chord with his music, and it was a pleasure to host him here at The ArtsHouse, hence why we have invited him back!”

Phil Mitchell. Promoter, Surf Café – “Ben Maggs, WOW! Superb playing, excellent songs and had the audience in the palm of his hand…. a real treat…. brilliant performance culminating in the whole cafe joining in his final chorus on ‘Hearts’.”

Freddie Whittaker, Production Manager, Main Stage, Stroud Fringe Festival – “Ben’s set at the Stroud Fringe Festival was spellbinding.  He hooked in his audience immediately and quickly had them joining in with his amazing songs. He was incredibly professional, working well with both the front of house, production and sound teams to ensure he went on bang on time. We look forward to booking him again in the future.”

Dave Jones – Owner / Promoter Vonnies Blues Club, Cheltenham – “What can be said about the modest supremely talented singer song writer Ben Maggs that is not abundantly clear from seeing his live performance – not much as this speaks volumes for his vocal talent and stage presence.  Audiences of all genres love his performances.  Ben has played for me many times, including opening for the legendary Chris Farlowe.  He last appeared in support of the bluesman Eddie Martin and with his stunning voice, sensitive playing and great songs he received a standing ovation with cries for more!  He is a star of the future in my view.”

 John Drummond, Brewery Blues“Ben Maggs is one of the best singer/songwriters to come out of the West Country in ages, a true troubadour who defies the confines of genre classification. His trademark acoustic guitar lays down the bedrock for a truly unique plaintive vocal style that simply oozes pathos and emotion. Mark the day you first hear Ben as being a very special one indeed!”

Ian Cann – Promoter, Cleeve Concerts – “Ben can be trusted to capture an audience’s attention. His music is current; the songs well crafted, the lyrics immediately accessible. Do yourself a huge favour and lend him your ears.”

Louise Wellby, Jam Sandwich at The Troubadour, London – “Ben’s one-man-band striking performance paired with intelligent and moving songwriting had the Jam Sandwich audiences hooked. We can’t wait to have him back and follow his journey.”
