Barry joined the Police Band in 1966.  During this time, until the mid 1980s, Band members were generally at a Police Station or the PCYC and came to the Band as required.

The NSW Police Band became full-time Band duties from about 1985.

Barry was an instructor of music at the Bankstown PCYC and that Bands Conductor for many years.

His son, Steve Gove-Jones also became a member of the Police Band.
