Al Barrett Band
More than just a Band
When Al Barrett began his musical career at the age of 13, he had no idea that all these years later he would be a successful singer, guitarist, entertainer and teacher.
Music is his life and it shows. Whether it is a corporate dance or intimate pub, his warmth and skills are there every night he performs.
An accomplished guitarist and singer, he will remind you of the styles of Pink Floyd, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, The Beatles, CCR, Stevie Wonder and The Guess Who, just to name a few. Al aims to please.
Guitar & Vocals
Al began guitar lessons in September of 1972. He was hugely influenced by seeing the Beatles on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in the early 60’s. Al started in his first band, “Phase Five”, in the mid 70’s. The first song he played in a band was “Johnny B. Goode”. He’s been a Rock’n’Roll guitar picker ever since. Al has been very interested in so many styles as he discovered music, and this, is very evident in his playing. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba exposed him to “The Guess Who”. Music has been, and will always be, Al’s ultimate passion!
Guitar & Vocals
April has been singing for as long as she can remember and has been influenced and inspired by a variety of artists in a wide variety of genres. Before making her home in the Calgary area, she performed at various venues in and around Edmonton, including Edmonton’s City Hall and Sherwood Park’s Festival Place. She is excited to bring her enthusiasm and love of music to The Al Barrett Band.”
