With 17 Best Band Awards in the SF Bay Area, this is probably the best & most popular band in Northern California. They can do it all: Rock, Motown, Disco, Swing, Latin, Country, Jazz, all eras. Great singers, high energy & they keep any crowd dancing & singing along all night long! Rebecca Hall, one of the leading event planners in the San Francisco Bay Area recently commented, "They are always our first choice... the best band in the Bay Area, bar none! A sure thing."
The Sharino Plus One Band adds a female vocalist or choose The Sharino All Stars which is an 8 piece expanded band with two female vocalists and an incredible horn section. The Joe Sharino Band leads all other bands in every category: Most corporate events played, most weddings played, most fundraisers, fairs and festivals played, largest Northern California following (6,200+ on their email lists), most press coverage (8 magazine covers) & most awards won.
Metro Magazine commented: "Sharino is not just a repeat award hoarder; around here, he's an institution. After almost four decades in the party-music business, if there's a song he hasn't played for the dance floor, maybe it doesn't belong there. What sets the Joe Sharino Band apart from other cover bands is charisma, lots of it. They've played weddings, corporate events, fundraisers and festivals of every kind. And audiences have fun, dancing and singing along every second they're onstage. Their song list goes into the hundreds, ranging from the 1940s to the present. It's like having a jukebox come to life."
Here are some comments from event planners:
"The Joe Sharino Band is always a hit! Joe's talent and experience really show -- depending upon the group, he can pick the mix that will get people on the dance floor and keep them dancing. He really knows how to pace the show and keep things rolling." Beth Cala, Any Event
"Your band is one of the most professional I have worked with. The variety of music that you play suits every age group at any function. The guests were very pleased and your energy levels had even me exhausted at the end of the evening. I don't think the dance floor was ever empty except when you took well deserved breaks." Lynne Wright, Monterey, CA
"What a pleasure it was to work with you. Really enjoyed your music, stage presence and your singing was awesome! Here are my comments: The Joe Sharino Band played a wide variety of music that appealed to all age groups. They have a keen sense of song selection and order of music, being able to read the audience and play to the energy of the crowd. The dance floor was full all night long! Joe and his band are very professional, easy going and always smiling. Perfection!" Elysia Heller, Elysia Heller Events

"I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how appreciative I am about all of your best efforts regarding the wedding that we just worked on together. Your help with the itinerary, and the professionalism of all of your members, beginning with your crew on down to your musicians was exemplary. I'm always a stickler about volume, and sound at my events. Yours was outstanding!! Not too "loud", yet the amazing vocals of all of your band members were really dialed in, and always on top. What a talent you are, WOW, not to mention also a fantastic MC. Party participation was at an all time high. In a word, the party rocked!" Joannie Liss Events
"I love working with you and your band! You never cease to amaze me. Your professionalism and cooperation throughout the planning process are appreciated more than you will ever know. The phenomenal celebrations you've created for each of my clients, regardless of age, ethnicity or musical requests have been nothing short of astounding. Your music suits all genres...and everyone finds themselves tapping their feet and heading for the dance floor. When the "Joe Sharino Band" is in the house, it's going to be a party!"
