ABOUT BARRY LEEF

After starting out in local bands in his hometown of Blenheim- NZ, Barry moved to Wellington-NZ and formed a band called 'Simple Image' which after two years on the road managed to reach #1 on the charts with a song called "Spinning Spinning Spinning".

Moved to Sydney-Australia working in Clubs, Festivals, and touring the country with legendary bands Bakery, Supermarket, and eventually formed the Barry Leef Band which became the in-house band at The Sydney Musicians Club.

Barry soon became involved in studio work and became one of Sydney's best-known voices, having been featured on hundreds of TV and Radio advertisements over three decades and during this time represented Australia performing in many song and music festivals around the world.

He has performed with Frank Zappa, Elvin Bishop, Tom Jones George Duke, and Jeff 'Skunk' Baxter to name a few.
