A little about our Music
For many who grew up listening to Rock and Roll and the Rhythm and Blues we bring back fond memories of endless summer nights. From Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding to Mark Rice, Percy Sledge along with songs we have written ourselves Rock & Roll and Rhythm & Blues. Music of the 60's is rare music that makes you want to dance. Relive some of the best years in music history with Barney Sledge & the Sledgehammers.
Each one of us brings a unique quality to the songs that everyone loves, a little Rock mashed together with the Blues! It is the rare rock down in your soul kind of music. Old lost music is still the best and we bring only the best to all of our performers.
Elvis was still King and the Beatles ruled but there's plenty of room left for Barney Sledge and the Sledgehammers!
A little about our Band
"Our band was created by country love. People who came together, opened their hearts and homes and produced the music that makes the band rock. Music is from the heart and soul, it's an understanding of rhythm.
Pardon, Brian, Mark and I connect on the dynamics of the music, at my age (61) I feel like a kid in a candy store, its all good.
We really think what we have done is gathered all the songs that everyone loves, even the ones that were forgotten and gave them a whole new life. With that being said we also have a lot of original music we put together and played our style, is magic! Music is eternal, the feel good in your heart kinda thing.
Basically what we have done is mix a lot of styles, mainly blues and rock and mashed it all together, in one sound that is magic in itself.
We are all a bunch of of musicians that love to have a good time in life, and I think it shows when we get together and play. The thing about it is when you guys are having a good time, we are for sure getting a kick out of it."
