About
The Peter Benjamin Band delivers a unique and powerful blend of modern indie rock and roots-y folk rock. His lyric and melodically driven artistry evokes classic and contemporary pop and rock artists such as Peter Gabriel, David Gray, and Mark Knopfler, as well as the alternative sounds of Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontaigne, and My Morning Jacket. As a songwriter, Benjamin also owes much of his style to the pop sensibilities of prolific and iconic tunesmiths like Billy Joel, Sting, and Phil Collins.

In the early 2000's, Peter co-founded Seattle-based post alternative group Edisyn, who enjoyed status as Seattle club scene staple from 2003 to 2008. Edisyn authored three acclaimed releases to a notoriously fickle Seattle original music scene before parting ways.

Benjamin is at home performing for a wide range of audiences including all ages festivals, clubs, special events, etc., carefully crafting his program material to each event. This often includes adding a healthy dose of exciting cover songs to his sets designed to give audiences additional context for the original music as well as greater insight into the influences from which he draws.

Peter Benjamin was so incredibly easy to work with and was so knowledgable when it came to planning music for our wedding. His band is so talented and sounded amazing! He was so easy to get in contact with and quick to respond. He learned to play several songs that I had requested and they were beautiful! I definitely recommend Peter Benjamin for a wedding!

Peter and his bassist (Jim?) were a fantastic choice for our wedding. Our venue had a unique "no amplification" policy, but Peter was willing to accommodate despite having to locate an acoustic bass. He played "It takes two" while we walked down the isle, and his own spin on "Isn't She Lovely" in which he whistles instead of sings (awesome) while we departed the ceremony. Then he played all sorts of hits for the next 3 hours at the reception. He was also one of the most competitive bids for the wedding. Highly recommend!

Peter Benjamin, his bassist, and keyboardist did an excellent job at the wedding. I was very pleased with his talent, versatility, and setlist! Many compliments came from the weddings guests, I overheard my brother's wife saying that he performed some songs better than the originals. Peter and the band helped to support me perform a song I wrote for my wife, and they did a great job. Overall, excellent work, I would recommend him for anyone who likes, pop, alternative, acoustic, and rock music!

Peter played our wedding in September. He played during the processional and recessional and then again for our reception. My guests loved him and asked me numerous times where I found him, as everybody really loved his music. He's super talented and accommodating and we love his style and taste in music. It was perfect for us!

These guys did a great job providing entertainment for my intimate wedding. The accommodated a change in set-up time and agreed to start 30 minutes sooner than requested when last minute changes threw off the timeline of the event. Their music was phenomenal. Because we were such a small group (25 people) and we were having them play through dinner, we decided on an acoustic performance. Honestly, I could not have wished for it to go any better than it did. The music they chose was perfectly balanced to provided entertainment without overwhelming the dinner conversation. They picked a perfect set list for our group.
