Barry's Truckers

The short version of the Barry's Truckers story is we were an extremely successful oldies/classic hits/show band.  We started as a five piece but over the years expanded to a seven piece with a horn section.  Our goal was to make every performance a party and keep people dancing and smiling. I was fortunate over the years to have worked with some of the top musicians in the area. Our strengths were not only our musicianship and strong vocals but our showmanship as well.  We incorporated costume changes and skits in our shows. We developed a large fan following in Wisconsin and northern Illinois. We did perform at some bars but our specialty became large outdoor festivals. Summerfest, in Milwaukee, is one of the largest music festivals in the country and we were one of the only local bands to play the evening headliner slots.  We became the go to band to open for national nostalgia acts that came through our area. We opened for The Everly Brothers, Ricky Nelson, The Temptations, Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Beach Boys, and the list goes on and on. We recorded many CDs over our 36 year history and I've included two below. These were recorded live at our shows. Scroll to the bottom of the page for audio samples
