Ben Lee Quintet
This band was set up by guitarist Ben Lee at the beginning of 2015 with an impressive array of contemporary players. Originally planned as a platform to play his own original compositions, since its formation the band have extended their repertoire. They now play the originals along with a real mix of music including rock, jazz, experimental and anything else that takes their fancy and are guaranteed to put on a great show. The band has gone on to record their debut album late last year which is to be released along with a tour in late 2016.
