California born, Brooklyn based rising saxophone star Ben Flocks has earned critical acclaim with performances at the Bern, Umbria, and Monterey Jazz Festivals. Growing up, Ben took advantage of a multitude of musical opportunities in the San Francisco Bay Area, attending shows at the Kuumbwa Jazz Center and camp at the Stanford Jazz Workshop, performing with both the SFJAZZ All-Star High School Ensembles and the Monterey Jazz Festival Next Generation Band, and studying with trumpeter and arranger Ray Brown. He has played with Joshua Redman's Trio and also with Dave Brubeck as a Brubeck Institute Fellow. While strongly influenced by the classic saxophone triumvirate of Sonny Rollins, Stan Getz, and John Coltrane, Flocks's own music reflects a creative mix of jazz, blues, folk, and Americana.

In April 2011, the Ben Flocks Quintet performed to rave reviews opening for Ahmad Jamal at the Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland. Ben was invited back to Bern for a weeklong stint at the famed Marian's Jazzroom in the Fall. In May 2011 Ben graduated from the New School in New York City, earning a B.F.A in Jazz Performance, and during the summer completed a two-year mentorship program at the Stanford Jazz Workshop. Ben now serves on faculty at Stanford Jazz in California and at the Calhoun School in New York. He also teaches throughout New York City schools as part of Jazz at Lincoln Center's Jazz for Young People programs. Ben released his debut album “Battle Mountain” on February 11th, 2014 to rave reviews.

Ben and his band are available for all types of events and celebrations. He specializes in jazz and blues and can put together a variety of groups to suit your needs. Ben has been playing weddings, corporate events, and private parties since 2004. Ben plays his saxophone sweetly and beautifully and has a knack for making you dance.
