What to Expect
What you can expect is a highly polished performance with exceptional quality sound. We pride ourselves in delivering a quality performance at a comfortable volume while ensuring the kind of quality sound reminescent of a major label concert. We can blend into any atmosphere which require "reading" your audience. Sometimes this means playing music below the conversation level of the guests and later turning up the volume when the guests are ready to hit the dance floor. We observe the dress code of every event and have certain contingencies in place to make sure "the show goes on."
The Barry Charles Band is a husband/wife duo consisting of Barry on piano/keyboards and vocals and his wife Karen on vocals. Their sound is best described as a fusion of American and Brazilian Jazz. While performing in South Florida's vibrant wedding and corporate scene for 10 years they have cultivated a high standard of performance. They are comfortable in just about any setting from restaurants and fundraisers to weddings and private events performing their brand of Jazzy music. Wether it's covering classy female and male Jazz Swing classics from the 40s or more modern Smooth Jazz and Brazilian tunes, Barry and Karen are comfortable in just about any genre as shown by their diverse repertoire.They derive their professionalism from their many years of experience of working at some of South Florida's finest hotels and country clubs from the Palm Beaches to Maui, Hawaii. They moved to Tennessee in 2010 and are now available to perform for your events throughout the Tennessee area. They also write and compose their own tunes which they released on iTunes. Everywhere they perform they have had nothing but positive feedback and have many references upon request. If your event needs a touch of class and sophistication Barry and Karen are sure to deliver.
