“We booked the band for the Mini7 Racing Club's 50th Birthday Party in The F1 Pit garages at Silverstone International. We reviewed a number of bands and chose them for their competitive price and their demo music on the site. To say they were excellent would be an understatement. They arrived when they said and when they did their sound test you knew they were going to be good, especially considering they were operating in what could only be described as one of the biggest garages in the UK! The band interacted with the partygoers playing a complete range of music and had every one tapping their feet and by the second set of the night had all 150 guests plus others from other clubs also at the circuit joining in. The place rocked and I've lost count of the number of people who have come up afterwards and said how good they were. Highly recommended!!” – Graeme Davies - Mini7 Racing Club

On top of their vast versatility as individual musicians, The Barneys are also excellent entertainers. Having members who use wireless microphones and guitars, they are not afraid to come out and have a dance with the audience or have your air guitar soloing dad back to back with the guitarists! There is no doubt that The Barneys will have you and your guests up and dancing, jiving and singing by the end of the night! The members of this band average at the age of 25; however already between them they have a huge amount of experience in the music industry, playing events such as The Harley Davidson National Rally to playing Silverstone Race Circuit in the F1 pits.
