Benjamin performed for our annual Oktoberfest and was awesome! Literally can play any song on the accordion! He added that extra something special to our party and folks were having fun & very impressed. Thanks again, Benjamin!!

Ben is a bit of a New York legend - don’t be fooled by his modesty. Before playing our party, I had actually partied with Ben a dozen times at various German spots...though in my memory he was more of a vision - an accordion god - than a mortal. Yes. Ben showed up early, played the hits of yesterday and today, taught us how to “prosit,” had lederhosen and can play with babies on his knee... but what we will never know, is just how high we could gone had it not been a 1st Birthday party. The sky is the limit with Ben. Come with your heart open, your voice loud and be ready to party. Ben is a gem - don’t take the opportunity to celebrate with him for granted.

Ben Ickies was amazing, easy to work with, professional, and on time. He played the two songs we asked him to learn, plus a whole bunch of other great tunes. We really started our marriage off right with Ben!
