Barry grew up in Rockland County, influenced by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Tony Bennet, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Glen Miller, and other prolific artists of the 50's and 60's. For Barry, there is nothing that compares to Sinatra's baritone vocals or the sounds of a Horn Section and a Big Band.
Beginning at a very young age, Barry's Grandfather Bert & Grandmother Shirley began sharing the music they loved with him, and it evolved into a true love affair over the years. Today, Barry still has the honor to hear his Grandmother's stories about meeting Nancy Sinatra and attending Frank's live shows.
Barry performs mainly at Private Events, but can sometimes be found at local venues like Shanghai Jazz Club in Madison NJ.
Barry's wants to keep Jazz and Standards alive and thriving. He believes strongly in educating today's youth on these timeless classics and having them join in on a wonderful musical journey back in time.
Barry can perform Solo, in a duo with a Pianist or Guitarist, or as a Trio or Quartet with multiple musicians.
