PJ's Bio

Patrick Barth (or PJ, as his friends call him) began his musical career at a very early age. His older brother Chris was a drummer and he sat PJ in front of the set when he was just two or three. Immediately, PJ knew what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. Chris carved out a piece of wood to look like a guitar so, when he played drums, his little brother could play guitar and sing along with him. PJ began playing a real guitar at age 15 and never looked back. PJ Barth has played with and opened for legends such as BB King, Buddy Guy, Steve Cropper (Booker T and the MG’s), Willie Nelson, Robert Cray, Lee Ritenour, Lee Roy Parnell, Robben Ford, Coco Montoya, Lonnie Brooks, Ronnie Baker Brooks, Al Green, Leroy and Teenie Hodges (Al Green Band), Koko Taylor, Gary Hoey, Greg Koch, Bernard Purdie, Kenny Neal, Ms. Ruby Wilson, Preston Shannon, Sean Costello, Tinsley Ellis, Johnny Lang, Etta James, Joe Cocker, Indiginous and many more.
