A refugee from Prairie winters, Barry began busking in the streets of Vancouver in the late 1960's with the High Street Band before busking was commonplace. Or legal. A couple of brushes with the law and the Vancouver monsoons drove him indoors to a life of bar bands in rooms that really should have had chicken wire around the stage.

A chance encounter with a Tony Bennett album inspired him to learn a bunch of expensive new chords, quit his day job and move to Victoria in search of a band that could play respectable music in places that didn’t need bouncers and weapons checks.
