Read What Others Have To Say About Us:

“The best entertainment we’ve ever had”

“We had Reverend Barry & Funktastic Soul featuring the Hellacious Horns play at our 2014 company Christmas party, and it proved to be a great decision. Our employees danced all night and had a great time! The following Monday, the entire office was abuzz with talk about how much everyone enjoyed the band.  I heard over and over from folks that this was the best entertainment we’ve ever had for our holiday party.  Barry was very professional and easy to work with, even going so far as accommodating requests from a few of our employees to play pre-recorded traditional Latin music during the band’s break. I would highly recommend Reverend Barry & Funktastic Soul featuring the Hellacious Horns for anyone who wants to book a high-energy dance band for their private event. You won’t be disappointed!”~ Cheryl Duley, Marketing & Event Manager, Universal Insurance Company of North America

If you’re looking for a high energy professional band, this is your group

“Reverend Barry and Funktastic Soul featuring the Hellacious Horns were the featured band at the finish party of the Sarasota Music Half Marathon.  The band was outstanding and exceeded our expectations.  They raised the post-race energy as athletes danced, not easy after running 13.1 miles.  Barry and the entire band are consummate professionals.  They played for nearly four hours and were as strong at the end as they were at the beginning.  We couldn’t be more pleased.  If you’re looking for a high energy professional band, this is your group.  I’d highly recommend Reverend Barry to anyone looking for Southwest Florida’s premier party band.” ~ John Korff, Sarasota Music Half Marathon

“kept the crowd on the dance floor all night long”

“We had Reverend Barry & Funktastic Soul featuring the Hellacious Horns play a 70’s-Themed Party & Fundraiser for our community and it was a huge success! Our members danced all night and everyone had a great time. I received numerous emails after the event and everyone raved about the band! They played two long high-energy dance sets and kept the crowd on the dance floor all night long. I would highly recommend Reverend Barry & Funktastic Soul featuring the Hellacious Horns for anyone who wants to book a high-energy dance band for their private event. Your members will love it!” – Bill Hooper, Riverwood Country Club, Port Charlotte, FL

Throughout the entire concert, people were stopping me to say: You’ve GOT to have this band back next year!

“Reverend Barry and Funktastic Soul featuring the Hellacious Horns performed at Myakka River State Park for our 2014, concert season finale. It’s no exaggeration to say that this was by far, one of the most fun concerts we’ve ever had! There were times when I’d look out over the audience, and I’m pretty sure that all 450 attendees were on their feet dancing. When I originally considered hiring them to play, I had reservations. I wasn’t sure if our crowd would go for a “dance” band. We are used to having blues, bluegrass, rock and country performers, and I wondered how well Reverend Barry would go over at Myakka. As it turns out, from the time the band played their first chord until the end, they had the audience boogying to the beat of some of the best dance music of all time. They were, hands down, a smash hit from the get-go! One of the advantages of having an outside venue is that there is plenty of room to dance, and our crowd definitely took advantage of that opportunity. Throughout the entire concert, people were stopping me to say “You’ve GOT to have this band back next year”! That pretty much says it all.” ~Teresa Good, Park Service Specialist, Myakka River State Park
