Barley Wine Band
The Orlando Florida based Barley Wine Band, together since 1994, is Central Florida’s premier classic rock & roll band. The band covers a variety of classic rock and roll hits the way you remember them, specializing in your favorite songs and albums from the 60’s and 70’s.
The Barley Wine Band can be found performing for special events, corporate functions, private parties, fund raisers and an occasional public appearance in establishments serving food and drink (OK, mostly drink).
Most Barley Wine Band members have been playing for many years, although a few just won’t admit exactly how long. This love of music, along with some exceptional talent, makes for a rockin’ good time.
The Barley Wine Band is Dan Rowlings, Mark Confer, Shannon Lewis, Frank Delle, Dave Holt and Nick Ricci.
