Joe Sharino BandWinner of 15 Best Band Awards in Northern California!
If you want to know about good bands in the Bay Area of California, one band consistently tops the list. When I was new to the Bay Area, I had nothing to do one Sunday and thought I'd wander over to and Art and Wine Festival near my house. As I walked through the festival, I felt myself drawn to the music I heard in the distance. I came across a covered pavilion filled with adoring fans, up on their feet and dancing to the sounds of the band on the stage. Before that first song ended I knew I was in for a treat. There were four members of the band. And as I listened, I found myself moving to the music as I stood there on the side of the stage all by myself. Their timing was flawless. The sound level was perfect. What amazed me most was the way they had of moving from one style into the next and into the next without skipping a beat and without losing anyone from the dance floor. Actually it seemed that the entire pavilion was the dance floor. They moved from Swing to Classic to Old School including other styles and they just completely blew me away. And now, I don't miss a chance to see them.
