8×8 Gold VocalBooth with blue Auralex interior upgrade
During his off time as a pitcher for the SF Giants, Barry enjoys playing drums and required a space to practice anytime day or night. Barry heard about sound isolation rooms and initially selected one of our competitor’s product. The room didn’t isolate the sound to his standards and that’s when he contacted VocalBooth. His 8×8 Gold Series VocalBooth with upgraded subfloor and blue Auralex interior did the job and performed to Major League standards!
Why He Rocks
Barry Zito is a left handed starting pitcher for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball. He previously played seven seasons with the Oakland Athletics, where he won the 2002 American League Cy Young Award and made three All-Star teams.
Music is in Zito’s blood. His father Joe Zito composed and arranged music for Nat King Cole in the early 1960s (ca.1961–64), and arranged for the Buffalo Symphony. Zito’s late mother Roberta was a classically trained musician who also sang with Nat King Cole’s band, in a choral group known as The Merry Young Souls.
His uncle is television actor Patrick Duffy. In 2003, Zito portrayed a United States Navy petty officer in an episode of JAG on CBS. Zito’s character, a pitcher, faced assault charges after hitting a Marine with a ball during the annual Navy-Marine all-star baseball game.
He created the charity Strikeouts for Troops, to which he donates $400 for every strikeout he throws. The charity benefits hospitals for soldiers wounded in military operations.
