The Alison Sharino Band is a high energy, versatile dance band that appeals to every age group. The band is an amazing group of musicians who love what they do. When people hear the band, they always comment on the incredible singing, both male and female. Guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, saxophone and four-part harmonies round out the full sound of this fun group. The result is a band with the kind of contagious energy to keep any crowd dancing all night long and a song list that covers every era and style of music.
The Alison Sharino Band performs at corporate events, wedding receptions, fundraisers, fairs and festivals and just about any private party. They thrive on involving the audience and on working with their clients to provide the best entertainment tailor made for each event.
Alison Sharino has performed with the Monterey County Symphony Orchestra, she has sung the National Anthem at four Oakland A's games and has performed in nightclubs all over the San Francisco and Monterey Bay areas. She has shared the stage with Kenny Loggins, Craig Ferguson, The Fifth Dimension, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Chris Slade of AC/DC and Doug Clifford of Creedence Clearwater Revival.
Alison and the band are easy to work with and flexible so as to meet each client's needs. The band takes fewer breaks than most bands and plays longer sets of music to keep your party going.
The band is also available as a trio (three vocalists, drums, guitar, and keyboard/keyboard bass) for events where space or budget is a concern. They can also perform as an eight-piece band, which includes the regular five members, plus an additional female vocalist and two additional horn players to make a full three-piece horn section. Please inquire about pricing for these configurations of the band.

"We booked Alison Sharino for our wedding reception on June 1st 2013 in Santa Cruz, and we could not be more pleased with our experience. Alison was very responsive in communication leading up to the big day. She was also very accommodating as we iterated on the song list. We had Alison play as soloist during cocktail hour, and she sang beautifully. We had the band play as a trio after dinner, and they were awesome. The rendition of our 1st dance song (which they learned for us) was beautiful. They also did a wonderful job keeping the energy level up for our guests during the dancing portion of the evening, with an excellent mix of songs. A++++ experience!"

Wedding Reception in Moss Beach, CA on 10/15/2011
"The Alison Sharino Band was the greatest! We could not have been happier. Our expectations were completely fulfilled and we are still hearing from our guests about the greatness of this band. Alison played solo for our wedding ceremony and then the complete band played for our wedding reception. Alison’s voice is simply awesome and the band has incredible talent. They even learned 3 new songs especially for us. I would highly recommend this band for any wedding or event. I gave them 5 stars on every category because they earned it!"
- William P.
Wedding Reception in Calistoga, CA on 09/02/2011
"Alison and the group were absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish. From learning 3 new U2 songs and nailing them perfectly - to Alison even lending one of the guests a dress right before the ceremony. Only disapointment was not having them play longer into the night..."
- Scott G.
Wedding Ceremony in San Jose, CA on 11/20/2010
"We were extremely pleased with The Alison Sharino Band's professionalism, performance, and flexibility. Though we had a detailed schedule for our wedding, some things were not planned and the band handled it very well. We would recommend them to anyone. They provided a wedding timeline worksheet and were very thorough.
They made our special day extra special!"

"We absolutely could not have been any happier with the Alison Sharino Band! Alison was an absolute joy to work with! They had everyone of all age groups at our wedding up and dancing. I remember my husband and I standing at the front of the dance floor as people spilled over the dance floor and he said "Just take a minute and look at all the people having fun at our wedding." SO many people said it was one of, if not the best wedding they have ever been to. I give a ton of credit to the amazing band! It seriously brings tears to my eyes because I was so overjoyed with their performance at our wedding!"
- Jennifer M.

"I would highly recommend hiring The Alison Sharino Band for your event. Alison did a great job of keeping in contact with me before my wedding and answering any questions I had. All of the band members were very talented and I had compliments from all my guests. They were great at adapting to the audience and catering to requests. They are a great band for all age ranges."
- Mindy L.

"Working with the Alison Sharino Band was a pleasure. They were professional, accommodating, and really got everyone up and dancing. I would suggest them to anyone."
- Robin I.
Wedding in Fresno, CA on 10/03/2009
"We wanted a great party and with The Alison Sharino Band, that's exactly what we got! Everything was running late and the band adapted well with a great mix of energetic tunes mixed with some slower ones. All of the musicians were solid players and the singing was great. Almost a dozen people came up to me over the course of the night and commented on the great band. Working with Alison before the wedding was really easy even with my crazy busy schedule. The band learned a new song that we wanted for our first dance. It was my duty to find a band for the wedding and I got major brownie points from the in-laws after for finding such a great band.
- Ryan V.
Wedding Reception in Stockton, CA on 08/22/2009
"675 Characters is definetly not enough space to express how absolutely fabulous the Alison Sharino Band was for our event (wedding) They were everything we had hoped for. Extremely talented, incredidible voices, great personality, tremendous range of music. Oh my gosh we wish the night, the music, the fun could have gone on for several days. We had not seen Alison and her band perform before, and decided to take a chance after looking and listening to her website. It was one of the best decisions we made, We were so happy and so were our guests with their performance, and professionalism, We would hire them again in a heartbeat !!!! "
- Gayle R.
Wedding Reception in Menlo Park, CA on 06/20/2009
"If you want a band that spans all age groups and gets them up and dancing for the whole night-look no further than the Alison Sharino Band! Everyone who came to our wedding is STILL talking about how amazing they were and all my East Coast friends want them to perform at their wedding. They helped us celebrate into the wee hours of the morning and when the crowd begged for a second encore, it was better than the first! While there are many important decisions that go into a wedding day, choosing the Alison Sharino Band was one of the best decisions we made because they truly helped us celebrate the first day of our marriage. Thank you Alison for a memorable evening!"
