Sharif has been performing for over 20 years in venues throughout the US, Europe, and Central America. Companies like Sony, Dell and Starbucks have all hired Sharif to liven up their special corporate events. And most recently, Sharif earned his Master's Degree in Guitar Performance from the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

Sharif's breadth of music is truly extensive, ranging from Classic Rock (Eagles, Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac) to 80's (Cars, Poison, Bon Jovi) to Modern Rock (Matchbox 20, John Mayer, David Gray) to Oldies (Carole King, James Taylor, Neil Sedaka) and even into the Hip Hop Realm (Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Backstreet Boys).

Aside from his list of over 1000 cover songs, Sharif has also recorded 4 original records, with musicians from bands like John Mayer, David Gray, Beck, Jason Mraz, Willie Nelson, Norah Jones and many others. Between touring schedules, Sharif plays weekly gigs in and around the DC area.

All of the samples on this site were recorded live at one of Sharif's concerts. Sharif utilizes many different pedals and effects to create a true "One Man Band" sound.

Should you decide to book Sharif for your special event, any song or list of songs can be learned and performed with just a little notice.

Sharif was fantastic! First off his communication was great - there were a few sound bytes I wanted to hear in advance of the wedding so he recorded himself singing them and sent to me. Second he was flexible - we were still working out the timing of the ceremony etc. and he was completely fine just reserving the day for us and figuring out details later. He came early to set up and do a sound check and his playing was beautiful! I got a ton of compliments from my guests about what a great job he did and how much they enjoyed him. As someone who works in the event planning industry myself and hears lots of different performers I would hire Sharif again!
