Having honed his musical talent, Ben started his journey as an Elvis tribute artist in 2005 when he formed the "Taking care of Elvis" band.

He looks like Elvis, sings like Elvis and has an on stage charisma that has reportedly had audiences believing at times they were watching the King himself. This talent has seen Ben rapidly rise through the ranks of Elvis Tribute Artists.
