David James Barker performs as a one man band, an awesome duo, adding his talented wife Christina Ronconi Barker on lead vocals and harmonies, a trio with another musician and as a full band. The song list has enough music to make everyone happy. Lively and upbeat, David James' music is perfect for dancing, singing along, or just listening. It can be as mellow as vocals and a guitar, or they can rock the house. Take a look at the song-list!

And although this site is set up primarilly for the "island" style feel, David James does it all, from Rock, Blues, Retro and contemporary, to Standards, Jazz and Soul. For ceremonies and celebrations, David James has plenty of ballads and love songs to choose from, along with traditional selections. Whatever your preference, you'll be 100% satisfied with the music, along with the professionalism and charm David brings to all of his performances.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION, BUT UP AND RUNNING

DJ (as he's called by friends and family) plays acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica, and lead vocals, and by adding custom backing tracks, live guitar effects and vocal harmonizers, it creates a full band sound. From smooth background music to rocking renditions of your favorite tunes,
you'll get exactly the right music for the right occasion!

As the featured tailgating performer in 2006 (at the Camden NJ Tweeter Center's Marina Yacht Club) for Buffet's "End of the World" Tour, DJ, (not a "DJ") is a favorite at Parrothead parties, charities, benefits, family get-togethers, special events, and beach clubs up and down the east coast. The "Ultimate Margaritaville Party!"

DJ and Christina's duo, "Barker & Barker", takes his one man band sound up a notch by adding great female vocals and blending beautiful harmonie and powerful counterpoints. With great chemistry and witty interaction, Christina's powerful musical style and charismatic charm adds an extra dimension to the music. Barker & Barker's Island act, "The SunSations" are regular performers at The Washington DC National Zoo's annual FONZ fundraiser and have sung together up and down the Eastern Seaboard in every kind of musical situation. You owe it to yourself to hear them perform.

Barker & Barker also have a wonderful standards show, "Sentimental Journey", a tribute to Sinatra, Louis Prima, Keeley Smith, Rosemary Clooney,
Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Dean Martin, Tony Bennett, Elvis, Ella, Neil Diamond, The Coasters, Drifters, Platters. Nat King and Natalie Cole,
and all the great performers and songs that made the 30's, 40's, 50's and 60's an unforgetable time in music. With stories and trivia mixed with wonderful the standards you remember from those old movies and musicals, Sentimental Journey is a crowd pleasing stroll down Memory Lane.

A full band is available for an unbelievably high energy show, custom tailored and perfect for larger gatherings and presentations.

With a degree in Music Business and years of "behind the scenes" experience, DJ can also help you plan ALL of the entertainment for themed events, weddings, anniversaries, fundraisers, fairs & festivals, celebrations, and special occasions. Entertainment Consulting, Marketing and Event Planning.

So, whatever you need, Barker Music will be professional, versatile, reliable, and a whole lot of fun!

We hosted an 80th hawaiian themed birthday party for our mom. DJ and Tina were the party!! Without a doubt they made it a true island feel.Despite the 100 plus degree weather they played on!!They have personality plus , felt like we had known them for years. Would invite them over anytime , even if it is just to hang out!

David was very good to us. We were hit by a storm in the middle of our event and he stuck through it with us and our guests under tents and in our garage until the storm passed. Once it was over, David set back up and kept on going. The music was great and he definitely added to our atmosphere. We will certainly hire him again!

David did a great job for my wife's 40th birthday party! He asked me well in advance what kind of songs she would like and was very accommodating toward special requests. He was very professional and loves his music---and it showed. He really gave our party an "island" feel(Many of our guests said they felt that they were in the carribean)! Great job David and thanks again! Chris & Karen
