$200 - $2000 per event
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.

I was hesitant to book a musician for our wedding strictly based off of Gigmasters reviews, but Sharif has a 5.0 review history for a reason. From a standpoint of logistics, he was easy to book, easy to get in touch with for coordination, flexible with timeline, and accomodating with the handful of songs we asked him to learn. Musically, he is obviously very talented and did a great job working his set list to keep people entertained and get people dancing later in the night. Take a look at his song list- if you like it, I cannot recommend him enough for your wedding reception, especially if you are sick of DJs and the Electric Slide

Thank you so much for the very kind review! I had a wonderful time performing for your wedding, and I'm so glad to hear that everyone else enjoyed it too. Wishing you both a long, lovely marriage together! :-)

Yes, yes, and yes! Sharif played acoustic guitar and sang at our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Hands down one of the best decisions we made! We asked Sharif to play five songs during our ceremony - one of which was a dedication to our parents. He learned to play and sing each of these five songs. He did awesome! One of my favorite moments of the ceremony was waiting to walk down the aisle, leaning up against the barn, and listening to Sharif sing "Kind and Generous" by Natalie Merchant (our song for our parents). Sharif was very responsive, invited us to one of his local gigs, and completely blew us away at the wedding! Highly Recommended!

I would highly recommend Sharif to anyone looking for a musician for their event! He was very professional, personable and patient! He was prompt in his response to any correspondence sent his way. He was receptive to song requests, had great song arrangements and even learned new ones for my daughters wedding. Not only learned new ones, but had to learn a few specific arrangements in a short time. He played beautifully and had a voice to match!
