The Barry Sea Paradox is an extremely versatile and entertaining group. Our shows are customized to our audiences and can include everything from R&B/Soul vocals, to Smooth Jazz Instrumentals, to Swing, to Disco, to Motown, to Oldies (with original or parady lyrics), to Latin, to Country, to Blues, to Standards, to any kind of dance music. If you like tenor sax, you'll love this group because Barry's unique and unusual style reflects every top sax player from Junior Walker, to King Curtis, to Grover Washington, to Boots Randolph, to Maceo Parker, to Stand Getz and Kenny Gee. Now remember, the group is called a paradox because the members of the group "just don't look like they do what they do." Barry's white and sings like James Brown. Li'l Ricky is Black and sings like Randy Travis. Dennis Cotton looks like a white accountant and sings and plays like Ray Charles. Bobbie's extremely petite, feminine, beautiful and reserved....but plays drums as funky as anyone you'll ever see...And Barry does a show stopper Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong impersonation.

The Barry Sea Paradox

Barry and Barbara (Bobbie)Sea walked away from promising musical careers in New York City to raise their children in the more family friendly environment of Houston, TX. While both have enjoyed successful professional careers outside of entertainment, their love of music never died. So they resurfaced with an exciting R&B/Soul and Smooth Jazz group called The Barry Sea Paradox.

Why a Paradox? A paradox is defined as a statement or proposition that seems contradictory or absurd, but in reality expresses a possible truth. Barry on Sax and Bobbie on drums just don't look like they do what they do...But nobobdy does it better. All members of the group are just superb and can play anything!
