The Joe Sharino Band recently won their 17th Best Band Award from the Metro Magazine's "Best of Silicon Valley Reader's Poll"! Thank you everyone! Thanks also to Metro for these kind comments:
"Sharino is not just a repeat award hoarder; around here, he's an institution. He got his start moonlighting while a student at San Jose State in 1974, built a reputation for high-energy live shows and never missed that broadcasting degree. 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."
