    the best!!!

    Book them!!! Seriously - if we hadn't have hired the Barnstorm our wedding definitely wouldn't have been as epic as it was. We had acoustic guitars for our ceremony, jazz for cocktail hour and they brought the party for the reception. They customized our first dance song for us and it was perfect. They had literally everyone at the wedding on the dance floor the entire night. I could go on and on. Just hire them! Thanks again guys :D

    The Barnstorm's reply:

    Thank you for this amazing endorsement, Kaitlyn! Your friends and family are the best and we had an absolute blast partying with everyone. Congrats and hopefully we will see y'all at a show sometime soon. Cheers!

    Outstanding

    The Barnstorm is an amazing wedding band!! We found them online and are so happy we hired them. Professional, sounded great, great vocal harmonies, and outstanding entertainment!! Everyone, of all ages at our wedding, loved them!! We didn't want a DJ but also didn't want the 'typical' wedding band. They are a dime-a-dozen. But not The Barnstorm!! They were just fantastic and helped make our wedding reception so much fun and so very memorable!!

    The Barnstorm's reply:

    Gary, thank you so much for the kind words! We had such a blast partying with you and your crew. We can't tell you how much we appreciate you trusting us with your special day. Cheers!

    "One more song!"

    "One more song! One more song! Five more songs!" - words chanted by our 135 wedding guests at the end of the night. Has any one else ever had an encore at their wedding?! These guys are AMAZING. They are insanely talented, fun, and hard-working. The Barnstorm made sure everyone had the absolute best time at our wedding. We literally never left the dance floor. The Barnstorm also helped out the best men with their speech and learned our first dance song. They did a BEAUTIFUL job with the song we chose and we are so grateful! The band also agreed to learn and play a pop Christmas song for fun at our request (and they absolutely nailed it) - they really just want to make sure you and your guests have the most unforgettable night! Brooks was also incredibly responsive throughout the entire process. These guys aren't just talented -they are also genuine and kind. Even our photographer came up to me to tell me how exceptionally nice they are and how she wants to go wherever they go. Yes, they are that good. We can't thank these guys enough and hope to see them play again soon!!!

    The Barnstorm's reply:

    Kait, y'all were such a fun couple to work with. Nothing better than hearing guests chant for an encore. Haha! We had the best time with your friends and family and hopefully we will see you at a show real soon. Cheers!

Team

Brooks Wood
Brooks Wood
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!

James
James "JR" Gudger
Emcee / Singer + Guitarist

The official unofficial front man of The Barnstorm, JR also serves as the Emcee for our weddings. From the moment we arrive for your wedding, JR is working hand-in-hand with the day-of coordinator and/or venue manager to ensure the day flows perfectly.

Cameron Mitchell
Cameron Mitchell
Music Director / Singer + Lead Guitarist

Serving as The Barnstorm's de facto Music Director, Cameron helps craft the perfect musical flow for the evening. Cameron has also been known to melt faces with his soaring guitar solos.
