About The Beard

Hi! How you doing? How can I help you?

Sorry for the untidiness of my website, this is because it is currently being rebuilt.

Who by???

Me, of course! I know! Madness! Turns out these web deviants who build these things are pretty clever people!! Its soooo much harder than I thought it would be!

I don't have a clue what I'm doing, but I'm having lots of fun, doing it, (the site literally changes most days, usually because I've spelt something wrong)! But hopefully it's being altered as I'm adding new videos I've edited.

Are you a web deviant? Get in touch, as you can see, i'm in urgent need off a website facelift!!!

For you people who come back quite regular, the shaving off the beard video is now in the video section.

For all you new folk who haven't been here before, I bid you a warm welcome..

My name is James Ball, and I've been a musician since I can remember. "Not very helpful" I hear you cry!! "You could just have a bad memory", (and I do)!!

So here is a brief bit of history..

I've played music and made a living from it for over 15 years, in this time I've worked with many, many musicians, in many hotels up and down the country, on cruises all over the world, and also had the pleasure of playing bass for US legends Tavares on their 2012 UK Arena Tour with The Four Tops, The Temptations, and The Crystals".

These wonderful experiences have made me very versatile, and I've learned a heck of a lot along the way. What works, what doesn't, how to read a crowd and play what they want before they actually know it themselves.

So, no matter what entertainment your looking for... A solo performer, duo, trio, swing band, jazz ensemble or all out party band, I can arrange the entertainment to suit your occasion.

From intimate renditions of your favourite songs, relaxed background music, to lively dance floor classics, I'll provide your evening with the ultimate finishing touch.

I'm based in the North West of England, but travel far and wide to provide my clients with the right music for their occasion, from family celebrations, parties and weddings, right the way through to large corporate events.

I'm quite a talkative little fella, so (at the risk of rambling more than I have already here), if you would like more information, have any specific requirements, special requests (first dance/favourite songs) or are interested in booking me as a solo performance or as a band, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to getting to know you

All the best..
James Ball
