Barry’s latest keynote, Unexpected Hero is a not to be missed inspirational true story of the golden days of rock ’n roll, innovative business building and unique marketing tactics.

On stage with just his vintage Fender guitar, Barry journey’s from the golden era of rock ’n roll in the fifties to the digital age, revealing the highs and lows of his music retail icon Toombul Music, and shares entertaining experiences rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s biggest music superstars.

“While writing my latest book ‘Take the bull by the horns’, I realised how pivotal my guitar had been in forging a memorable career in music. This motivated me to adapt my story to the stage; perform the music that influenced, and spotlight the entertainers who inspired me, revealing the true ‘unexpected hero’ in my lifetime.”

“A highly entertaining evening of stories & music- different & most enjoyable”
