    We hired Barry Shaw for our daughters wedding last November. We had received numerous recommendations from friends. We are glad we did . The music was amazing from start to finish. The variety of music was amazing and the dj services between sets kept the dance floor full. Highly recommended.

    From Start to finish and I mean from the quick email response and excellent on line resources and reviews it was an easy decision to make. At the end of the day the best choice other than marrying my wife was the band who hit it out of the park. It was like going to a concert it was that good! The place was rocking all night and we had all ages at our wedding. Barry himself performed and he was amazing and then the Unique band was awesome. Highly recommended
