The Ben Stewart Duo features Ben on acoustic guitar/vocals alongside a number of Qld Conservatorium graduated musicians, including:
- Salliana Campbell on violin
- Tanja Hafenstein and Joachim Alfiem on cajon and percussion,
- Joe Darcy on Drums or
- Seamus Kirkpatrick on electric guitar and bass.
That means we can suit a range of venues and events. Violin is a beautiful addition for a folky atmosphere or wedding ceremony or add guitar/bass for more bite. The cajon produces a punchy, earthy drum groove packed into the size of a single box or drums might be better for a big rock sound.
Ben Stewart duos perform at bars, pubs and events around Brisbane with an extensive song list and an ability adapt to what the situation and crowd are wanting to hear, with relaxing tunes like Budapest (George Ezra), Thinking Out Loud (Ed Sheeran) or Fall at Your Feet (Crowded House). or they can create a full punchy sound to dance to with the likes of Lucky (Daft Punk), My Jones (Counting Crows) or Lonely Boy (The Black Keys).
