If you’re young. If you’re old. Or if you’re somewhere in between. Then the chances are that you enjoy Barry’s concerts and would like to know more about both Barry…and his music.

If that’s the case…then there’s also a good chance that you might be interested in Barry’s Fan Club. Notice we said Fan…not Fanatic. There’s a big difference.
