Ben Gilgen

Ben Gilgen has hundreds of songs in his repertoire, so he can provide music for any entertainment from the 50’s to the 00's

Ben’s first band in Auckland was ‘Ardijah’. Two years playing and singing on Australia’s world famous Hamilton Island gave Ben the experience and expertise to be a top in his field. On Ben’s return to New Zealand he has performed with various bands and performers including Annie Crummer and Billy T James’s Band.

Ben quickly gained a reputation in Auckland as a top piano and keyboard player. Opening for Lionel Ritchie and playing keyboards for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1990 Commonwealth Games gives an idea of the level Ben is at. Ben has extensive experience playing with many bands in Australia in the 80’s.
