Based out of Barnstable, Massachusetts, two sets of brothers and longtime friends combine to form the Barn Boys; A Blues, Rock, Funk, and Reggae band lead by multi-talented lead guitarist and singer Graham Hempstead. The Barn Boys create a unique and groovy rock and roll sound that is authentic and distinct to the area.
The origins of the band start far before the members knew of each other’s love for music. Twin brothers Thomas and John Bresette (rhythm and bass guitar) first met Liam Hempstead (Drummer) in the 3rd Grade when Liam moved into Barnstable Village. Years went by and Liam and the Bresette brothers quickly became very close friends. At the time John and Thomas didn’t know how to play any instruments, yet Liam had been playing the drums since he was 7 and Graham (Liam's older brother) had played the guitar since he was 6. In 2017, Graham began teaching Thomas guitar lessons. Though it started off slow, Thomas practiced as much as he could, and by the end of the year, he really took off with it. John soon followed and became determined to learn his own instrument. By 2019 John had learned the bass, Thomas had drastically improved on the guitar, Liam got back into drumming, and Graham began hopping in on the younger boys' jam sessions. As the group practiced more and more and developed chemistry, the idea of forming a band had become a reality.
