Ben Marines spent all of his formative years in Central Texas, but it wasn’t until after joining the army in 1969 that he came to Austin and got his first guitar. He drew a lot of musical inspiration from the city and a family deep-seated with artists. Ben got his first taste of performing with tejano band Shorty and the Corvettes, then founded Salaman with himself on bass. After a difficult period in his life, he turned to mariachi, and created his own four stringed guitarron for a truly unique sound. Ben mostly plays private parties these days, but is most passionate about ensuring that music continues through future generations.
