The Bass Lake Event Center will host "An Evening with Joe and Alison Sharino" Saturday, Aug. 3.

The acoustic performance will feature the vocals of the father-daughter duo with guitar and piano accompaniment by both and plenty of 'sing-alongs' with some impressions and even a little comedy. The music will be the best of pop, classic rock, Motown and a little country music from the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Joe Sharino is the leader of the Joe Sharino Band, the most popular band in the Bay Area and winners of 17 Best Band Awards from readers and listeners of the San Jose Mercury News, Good Times Magazine and KGEO radio.
