Barry Seelen
Barry's parents were dance instructors and often performed on cruise ships and the resorts of the Catskill Mountains of New York where Barry was influenced by many great entertainers. When the family moved to Connecticut, Barry started piano lessons. Upon graduation of High School, he entered the Jazz Studies Program at the University of Bridgeport where he studied for two years with Noreen Grey and Bill Finnegan. He then transferred to the Hartt School where he earned his Bachelor of Music Degree. At Hartt he studied with Hotep Galetta, Mark Templeton and Jackie McLean.

Barry joined the band The Midnight Sun in 1987, which performed a wide variety of styles including jazz, rock and blues. In 1990, he started to play with Chris Tofield and the Blues Benders. In 1995 he felt the road calling. During that year, he toured with Matt "Guitar" Murphy. Later that year, Barry joined Greg Piccolo and Heavy Juice, and toured with them for 4 years in the US and Canada.
In 1999, Barry joined up with Mighty Sam McClain. They have travelled extensively in North America and Europe and made recordings. Barry also freelances in the North East US and Texas.
