Ben Lacy and Friends

Ben first started to play guitar around age 7. He had one "lesson" with a classical instructor. This instructor got mad when Ben told him that he was out of tune. That was the end of Ben's formal education, he has been self-taught ever since.

Ben has played locally in his hometown of Lexington, Kentucky with many bands, ranging in styles from jazz/funk to dance to metal. Around 2000, Ben became a solo act, but still enjoys a duet with Bob Bryant, bass extraordinaire. The duo has had the honor of opening for Tower of Power twice in Kentucky. Outside of Kentucky Ben has performed around North America and in Europe.
