“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
The Barneys are an elite, professional function band based in Essex consisting of 4 members who are hugely experienced and vastly versatile. They met on their BA(Hons) degree in Music course and since rocked the music industry around Essex and branched out as far as Somerset and Lincolnshire. These have been for private events such as Weddings, Army Barracks, Corporate Events and Organisations Awards Evenings.
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. On top of this there are members of the band that also play in theatre shows and pantomimes to sell out audiences. Doing a degree has also boosted their knowledge in live sound, so they can provide you with the best sound for your event.
Having a huge repertoire of 70+ songs (forever growing!), The Barneys can cater to your every musical needs. If you want a golden oldies set followed by nothing but modern party songs or a mixed set of rock, pop and disco songs, then this is the band for you! Make sure to check out their repertoire section, some of the popular artists they cover are Elvis, Van Morrison, The Beatles, Billy Idol, The Blues Brothers, McFly, George Ezra, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and many more!
When you book the Barneys you will get nothing but pure professionalism with their attitude and equipment. A key ingredient to the band offering a superb night is their equipment.

Along with the PA system, the band own a wide range of high-end gear: Sonor, Sabian, Zildjian, Gibraltar, Fender, Mackie, Musicman, Shure, the list goes on. The Barneys can offer two different attires; they can come to your event suited and booted ready to play or dressed smart-casual for your more laid back events.
