Ben has been drumming since he was 10 years old when he realized that drums were quite possibly the loudest hobby he could pick up. Since then he's been performing at theaters, bars, weddings, and the occasional basement with a band from his hometown of Rockford, IL. In Boomshaka, he served a year of duty as Equipment Manager before moving onto the role of Producer. His favorite part about being in Boomshaka is performing for young kids and sending them home with a pair of drumsticks afterward. There's just nothing that beats the look of worry in their parents face knowing that they now have to raise a noisy drummer.
