Wedding Ceremony in Bealeton, VA on 09/01/2013
"Sharif was extremely professional, accommodating and most of all, beyond talented. He played for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour in extreme heat without complaint or hesitation--and did so amazingly! He accommodated all our song requests and even learned a bridal entrance song for me. I received so many compliments on his performance and would recommend him to anyone for any event."

"Sharrif played for our wedding ceremony last month. He was fantastic. We had some unusual song requests that he learned for us an did wonderfully...better than the originals! He was set up and already playing by the time he was supposed to be there. Everyone loved him...I think every guest commented on how much they enjoyed the music. We could not be happier!"

Birthday Party (Adults) in Palm Springs, CA on 04/26/2008
"Sharif did a fabulous job for my mom's 60th birthday. He is extremely talented and put on a great show appealing to all ages. He was on time, very professional, accomodating and above everything else, he is a very nice person. It says a lot when at least 4 or 5 people said to me they want to have a party just to have him play. I can't express how pleased we were with Sharif and his performance and the ease of working with him and gigmasters."
