Sunday Lunch with The Ben Holder Quartet
“That man Holder... If he was playing electric guitar behind a screen you’d swear it was Jimi Hendrix come back to life. So fast. So melodic.” - Jonathan Craymer, Grapevine Live
Ben Holder is one of the most gifted and exciting young violinists in the UK. He brings with him a fabulous ensemble and a reputation for sizzling shows packed with swing, blues, and timeless favourites from the likes of Chuck Berry and The Beatles!

The Ben Holder Quartet is a stellar line-up of incredible musicians, blending an energetic mix of traditional jazz and swing with Ben's own infectious originals, which hark back to the fun and swing of the 1920s and 1930s. The group is one of the most exciting swing bands to emerge in recent years. Led by the fiery enthusiasm of 26-year-old Ben Holder, who not only wows on violin but also on the keys, the quartet is strengthened by the phenomenal Jez Cook on guitar, the suave talent of Paul Jefferies on double bass and the breathtaking drumming of Dave Wilkes. The Ben Holder Quartet masterfully mix old jazz favourites with some more recent material and leave audiences up and down the country shouting for more.
