ABOUT US

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.

Graham Hempstead is truly a rockstar. As the lead guitarist and singer of the band, it is clear that he is the member that gives the barn boys such a unique and distinct sound. Whether Graham is hitting all the right notes on a guitar solo or passionately belting out lyrics, crowds always love seeing this frontman giving it his all. The Barn Boys Band couldn’t be happier to have such an incredible lead to the band and they would be missing a key piece without Graham’s style, energy, and talent!

Liam Hempstead (younger Brother of Graham) has been with The Barn Boys Band from the start. As the Drummer of the band, Liam takes on a lot of responsibility in keeping the beat and holding the pace, and he does this flawlessly! Not only is he a master on the drums, but he also delivers excellent vocals, whether he is rapping a hip-hop verse or singing out a chorus.

A band wouldn't be complete without its rhythm guitarist. The Barn Boys Band couldn’t have asked for a greater talent than Thomas Bresette, who plays a critical role in the success and musical progression of the unique sound that they offer.

John Bresette (twin brother of Thomas) provides the band a much-needed link between the harmony and rhythm of the instruments, doing this through the bass guitar. John not only contributes to the harmonies and rhythms of the band, but he also contributes to the overall groove and feel of the band. Without John, on bass, the Barn Boys sound would not be complete!
