What People Are Saying About

Barry Keenan & Invisible Poet Kings

Henry Cutrona  (Screenwriter/Musician)

It’s an understatement to say that Barry Keenan and the Invisible Poet Kings is a great band. The well-crafted rhythms and lyrics that Barry contributes is a hint and blend of Lennon & McCartney, and Dylanesque lyrics, but it’s truly Barry’s talent and vocals that shines through.  In my opinion it’s one of the last great bands that truly epitomizes the sounds of where it all came from. If you have the opportunity, they are a must see.


Paul F. Antonelli (Music Supervisor: ABC/NBC/CBS)
This is ALL so FANTASTIC to see and hear!! I've had the great pleasure of following Barry Keenan for years & have placed his music on several shows that I've worked on. I always look forward to seeing what he comes up with next because he NEVER disappoints!! 


David A. Helfant (Entertainment Attorney, Los Angeles)
These guys are one of the best bands in the Music Industry. They deliver live, and are so much fun to watch.

Barry Keenan and Invisible Poet Kings are the ultimate musicians of our time! Barry is an accomplished singer/songwriter with his songs placed in popular movies and TV shows. Invisible Poet Kings are a delight to see live, every show is an event to remember. I've never seen audiences react with so much enthusiasm as when Barry and the group perform


Suzan Mann (Bob Dylan)
Maestro Barry, is a world of talent! His songs are the best of the best and his band is so much fun. His song "Happy, Happy, Happy" is infectious! You can't stop singing it! It is so nice to go see The Invisible Poet Kings and hear great music that is upbeat and just plain fun and makes you feel good. Not many bands can do what The Poet Kings do! Give you an enjoyable night of great music, great songs and so much fun. And Barry, oozes charisma, too!! A real artist in every sense of the word. I look forward to their next show and having a fun filled evening of great music and song!

Barry has produced many songs with me and I’ve written many with him. He is a total superstar in every sense of the word. Detroit, you are very lucky

We love Barry Keenan and the Invisible Poet Kings!
Their music is innovative and catchy and I know it’s great music as I’m still humming the songs hours and days after I’ve heard them!  We love the British genre of music Barry writes, plays and sings in his unique, memorable voice. He’s a rising star! Can’t wait to see and hear the very talented Barry and the IPK band again soon! Where and when’s the next gig, please?


Tim Piper (Just Imagine, John Lennon)
I became aware of Barry years ago and found one of the true, great writers of the rock idiom whose music paints pictures and makes you feel. His band: Invisible Poet Kings


Mike Hatfield (Singer/Songwriter/Musician)
Great Band ! Great Songs ! It will Great to be able to see them again without 
having to go to LA. !


Michael Manoogian (Logo Artist/Art Director)
Touch my heart?  Hell, it pierced my soul!  As soon as I started listening I knew where Barry was going with this. I didn't get two lines into the song when I HAD to show this to my wife, who instantly GOT it. Barry is absolutely correct - the courage it takes to keep your integrity intact. Bravo, Barry Keenan! I consider this a masterpiece...for all the right reasons.


Marc Marot – Chairman, Crown Talent & Media Group; Former President Island Records (U2, Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey, Yusef)
He's clearly a really talented guy.... at a time where standing out from the crowd (as Barry does) isn't as popular as it ought to be.  

Jeffrey Hirschtick (Owner of indie label East Of Sideways Music)
Besides being a very talented multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, arranger recording engineer and producer, Barry Keenan is an amazing, inspiring recording artist, and an exciting "live" performer who could easily share the stage with anybody.  He is also a wonderful human being and friend.  I am so proud to be able to work with Barry and help the world discover and enjoy his extraordinary talents.
