In addition to singing Pop and R&B, Barrys' (aka 'The Cocktail Crooner') specialty is that of a Jazz Crooner/Singer in the style of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Nat "King" Cole, Bobby Darin, Harry Connick Jr. and Michael Buble'. He would love to be considered to perform at your venue or special event. He comes in many configurations to accommodate your budget. He can do everything from sing solo along with professional sounding big band backing tracks (goes over very well with events that want the full sound without having to pay for a full Big Band), sing along with live piano accompaniment, trio, quartet, small big band and or full 17 piece big band.
"Crooner" is an epithet given to a male singer of a certain style of popular songs, dubbed pop standards. Normally backed by a full orchestra or big band, Crooners sing and popularize the songs from the Great American Songbook. (Link)
