As a bartender, music enthusiast, and most importantly a friend, Dave’s music is always a highlight. He’s got a great mix of classic songs including originals that make any night a great one. Whether you want a night of mellow tunes or a foot stomper, Dave’s style and repertoire has it covered. As the bringer of drinks to many of his biggest fans, there is always such a buzz in the room when he is up on stage. He’s charismatic and there is never a sad seat in the house when he is up on stage. It makes me warm and tingly inside to know that Dave is pursuing his dream by recording and distributing this album, you will not be disappointed.

We can’t say enough about Dave Barrow’s contribution to our wedding. We first noticed Dave in August of 2009 during dinner in Guelph at a restaurant where he was playing. We were focused on our meal and our trip, but it didn’t take long for the conversation to turn to “Who is this singer? He’s really good!” We didn’t want to interrupt him in the middle of his set, but when we arrived home we contacted the restaurant and asked for his contact information. We were just starting to plan our wedding, but we already knew that we wanted Dave to play at it. From the start of our contact, Dave was a true professional. He sent us a list of songs that he knew, samples of his recordings, and even offered to learn new songs. He met with us ahead of time, visited the wedding venue, and even came to the rehearsal. During the event, his performance was flawless; Dave watched the ceremony and ensured that his playing meshed with the pace and unfolding of events. At the reception, he kept up with sudden changes to the program, never complained, and he served as an impromptu musical director, interacting with the DJ. Dave’s music set a perfect mood and greatly enhanced everyone’s enjoyment of our special day. We were incredibly happy with Dave’s performance and professionalism, and we plan to use him at another event in the near future. Highly recommended! You won’t be disappointed.

Dave has performed here at the Firehouse many times over the last few years. He always arrives early, brings his own equipment and PA system, and his set up and take down is fast and without hassle. We have had Dave play everything from a quiet dining room to a late night crowded bar, his interaction with the customers is great, and he’s rarely, if ever stumped on a request. It is not uncommon for us to have customers phone the bar to find out when Dave’s playing next. It’s good to know that I can rely on Dave to be there and put on a great show.
