Such a fun band!
The Barnstorm played at our welcome party the night before the wedding, and they really set the tone for the whole wedding weekend. Amazing song list, such great energy, and they kept the party going the whole night! So much fun!Sent on 08/19/2020

Used them for a party
I was referred to Barnstorm by a friend who I know does fun really well- so had high expectations and they flat out delivered. Had them for a party and they were awesome. They had such great energy- and connected with the whole crowd in such a warm and real way. They have great range in terms of what they play- and did an unbelievable job of reading the crowd and knowing what to play. We had a diverse group in terms of ages at the party and they connected with all. They had everyone signing and dancing and they were having fun with all of us. I am still getting compliments from friends as to how great they were- would definitely recommend them.Sent on 01/20/2020

Barnstorm is a party!
I hired Barnstorm after seeing them perform at a NYE Party. They were so much fun we needed to book them for our annual fundraiser. They were amazing at taking requests prior, to collaborating across the board. Everyone danced all night and talked about them for days. If you want a FUN band, no one's better than Barnstorm!Sent on 08/06/2020
Team of The Barnstorm
Manager / Singer + Guitarist
My name is Brooks Wood and I am the manager of The Barnstorm. One of the great things about our band is that we are NOT your typical wedding band. We've been playing together for 10+ years in NYC, and have developed an onstage chemistry that is 2nd to none. We play fun songs, but most of all, we throw a party. We take great attention to detail & treat each wedding as if it's our very own. Even though we live in NYC, we're all from the south, so we try and make sure our clients always feel the southern hospitality. We play Live Showcases monthly in NYC, so check our calendar & come see us live!
