From the great state of New York comes Drummer, Percussionist and Multi-instrumentalist Ben Teters. Born into a family of musicians, Ben began honing his skills as a drummer at the age of seven, forming his own band at the age of 15. Moving to Boston, Ben attended Berklee College of Music where he studied with Kenwood Dennard, Mike Mangini, and Mark Walker, graduating in 2012. Since moving to Brooklyn, NY in 2012, Ben has been active on the local scene as well as maintained a busy touring schedule. His versatility, rock solid groove, and free flowing incorporation of Afro-Latin rhythms into contemporary music has led Ben to a host of musical collaborations—regularly performing, recording, and touring with some of the finest artists from New York and beyond. Currently, Ben can be found leading his own group Palmslap, handling both drum and lead vocal duties. He also regularly plays with The Bushwick Hotel, The Brighton Beat and many other artists in the industry. Follow Ben on Twitter & Instagram @BenjahmonT. Ben is available for touring, recording, and teaching.
