Channeling talent, motivation and business skills into a successful music career is not always the easiest thing to do. Even seasoned musicians have a hard time bringing all these elements together, but not Ben Egan. Egan is an Old Dominion University senior and music business production major already succeeding at all three.Ben is a musician of many talents, affirming his plan of having a life that centers around music. “I have played music since I was seven and I can play the saxophone, French horn, trumpet, keyboard, drums and piano,” he said. On top of all this, he is a talented freestyle vocalist.Egan is dedicated to music because he believes it is a form of communication for himself and others.“Music is my form of healing; it makes me feel better, and gives me a release from my stresses,” said Egan. He also wants to find commonality through music with his fans, who all mean a lot to him. One of his most motivational moments was after a show. “Once a girl came up to me after a show and told me she was having the worst day of her life and that our music had made her feel a little better,” he said. To Egan, that’s all that matters.Egan has made a name for himself within the Old Dominion music scene. After, playing a set at Campus Chaos the last three years to a considerable crowd, he decided it was time for a change. A couple of months ago, Egan and fellow Old Dominion University student, Rhett Walton, kick started a group which has now become Hubble Bash, an electronic/hip-hop/reggae jam band. The two has known each other and played together for four years, so it was a logical next step when they decided to combine their talents.Hubble Bash incorporates a live DJ, drummer, pre-recorded pianos; and organs, bass, guitar samples and other popular forms of electronic music. They have not only played in the 757, but are branching out throughout Virginia.
