The Joe Sharino Band Has Won Eighteen Best
Band Awards in Northern California!
The Joe Sharino Band
won it's most recent (2022) Best Band award (their 18th)
when Metro Magazine's
"Best Of Silicon Valley"
Reader's Poll gave the Joe
the "Best Band Award" again.
We thank you all for your years of support!
Metro Magazine commented:
"“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.”
And here's what Metro wrote in 2010 when we won the award that year:
"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."

"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."

Why does the band consistently please audiences? They sound great, they're
incredible singers, with very
high energy, they do an incredible variety of music and... they involve the audience.
The Joe Sharino Band has an incredible ability to excite a crowd into singing
along at the top of their lungs and the dance floor is always full! The band includes a former member of Santana and Sly and the Family Stone,
plus a songwriter for Earth, Wind and Fire and Lee Rittenour. A two-man crew
operates the sound and stage lighting.
Their music is the best of Pop, Rock, Motown, Funk,
Country, Disco, R and B, Jazz, Latin and Swing from the last six decades.
