Tom Barnes / Bio

Falling asleep to the sounds of The Band, Albert King, BB King, It's A Beautiful Day, and CCR as a child of the seventies, lead guitarist and vocalist Tom Barnes' influences were as diverse & colorful as the era of his youth. Teaching himself to play guitar at the age of 16 and later studying classical at junior college, his ear and technique blend together like that of an impressionist artist.

Tom Barnes has been entertaining the crowds of Syracuse, New York's finest bars & restaurants for the past 15 years. Earning regular appearances at world renowned venues such as The Dinosaur BBQ, Coleman’s Authentic Irish Pub, Shifty’s Bar & Grill, Cornell College, Oswego Harbor Festival, The Sherwood Inn, Fingerlakes Wine Festival, The Mirbeau Inn and Spa, The Taste of Syracuse, and The Skaneateles Antique Boat Show.

Killer originals mixed in among covers of over a 1,000 songs, merging Rockin' Americana based song writing with innovative and modern twists, Tom Barnes' electrifying stamina is sure to impress both young and old!
