Testimonials

Helen Sharpe Testimonials“Helen Sharpe and Clive Barker have played at The St Leonard Public House on numerous occasions now and have never failed to deliver. Their interaction with the crowd is amazing to see and they get the crowd up and dancing and really enjoying themselves. They have a great eclectic mix of songs that appeal to both young and old and their sets are kept fresh every time with different songs on each occasion.
“Even your favourites can be asked for delivered by the very sultry voiced Helen and complemented by the fabulous Clive on the guitar. We are so happy with each performance and their professionalism that we’ve asked Sharpe and Barker to be our resident house band and are delighted that they’ve agreed – we couldn’t wish for a better duo, great for all occasions – BOOK THEM!!!”
Phil Quarton and Chris Leech

“In May 2010 my husband and I were married. We asked Helen Sharpe to sing for us – a variety of sweet soul music to begin with (she blew the roof off with Natural Woman – there wasn’t a dry eye in the room!) followed by a later set for those guests ready to P.A.R.T.Y!
“The transition from Gospel-like Goddess to Disco Diva was brilliant. Helen has a god-given adeptness to warm a crowd and make everyone feel like they are involved. She radiates warmth and love. She also finished with a few contemporary tunes specially requested by me and my husband which ended the night on a real high.”

“What a joyful evening we had enjoying the sultry tones of the ultra glamorous Lady Sharpe! Her warm, humorous and soulful take on a fabulous collection of old school classics and quirky covers was totally infectious and had us all singing, smiling and swinging en masse! Taking us from Marvin via Chic to The White Stripes backed by an impressively tight and mostly acoustic rhythm section, she truly is a class act…a truly stylish and soulful night to remember!”

“Recently I listened to Helen Sharpe + Clive Barker of Sharpe + Barker at the St Leonard Public House, I asked Helen if she would play at the St Leonard on my recent birthday for family and friends. The evening was a tremendous success, with great music, which everybody enjoyed. I would certainly recommend Sharpe + Barker for an event in the future!”
