Shari Puorto & Shari Puorto Band:
“Many of us anxiously wait to hear a voice that resonates throughout our entire body. When listening to Shari Puorto sing, you can actually feel her voice. Yeah, she’s that good.” “When Shari delivers a hard driving blues tune or a soft intimate ballet, you feel her passion and message that the songs were meant to share.” Neil Caplin - iJamar Magazine

“Switching up sounds like a musical Swiss Army knife, Shari Puorto’s band gives the internationally traveled vocalist shredding rock riffs to which she belts like Benatar and smooth blues rhythm she accompanies with McLachlan-like harmony.” Monterey County Weekly

Shari Puorto
Endorsement: AKG/Harmon, Anvil/Calzone Cases

"Shari has always provided an honest and powerful musical experience that strikes at the core of what music is all about. Great energy, original material, a true group performance, and a talent that reaches off the stage to touch the audience." Joe Wagoner AKG/Harmon.

Currently residing in Los Angeles Shari Puorto is “a soulful singer with a sexy and raspy sound. Like Joplin, Puorto is a passionate performer with an energy that can rattle the foam in a pint of Pilsner.” Kevin, Pubclub.com.

Shari is an award-winning singer/songwriter who was pre-nominated in 3 categories for the 2017 Grammy's (song "Turned to Stone" in the Americana Cat., Album "My Obsession" and performance on "Sugar Daddy"). In Oct, 2016, Shari placed 2nd by 1/2 point in the International Blues Challenge at the Ventura Blues Society chapter.

Since early 2000, Shari has performed continuously all over California across the U.S and abroad. Shari’s musical interest began early on being influenced by her father’s Classic Rock and Rock bands from The Rolling Stones to the Doobie Brothers to Eric Clapton to old-school Blues. On her own she became addicted to the sounds and soul of Etta James, the Allman Brothers, Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, and various R&B artists. Shari is best known as a passionate and bold performer. She has been compared to the likes of Janis Joplin (due to her performances), Bonnie Raitt, and Bonnie Bramlet, due to vocal tone / ability and control.

“It’s my belief that women singers will be compared to her. Her chops are silky smooth, or gritty depending on the song; but they are always filled with soul. Her emotion is flat out in your face and there may be precious few that can do it better.” John Porter, Time for the Blues

With her Blues/Rock Band backing her you’ll see and feel a band combining today’s Modern Blues/Rock approach with yesteryears traditional Blues. Their connection with the audience and their performance onstage is infectious.

You would think Shari’s been doing this forever. She has the sensibility of an old soul reborn and is undeniably passionate. She possesses a deeply expressive and soulful voice; one that catches you off guard. She is a powerful and dynamic live performer who quickly and quite naturally connects with her audience. Her infectious enthusiasm overcomes you, you have no choice but to get pulled in. (She’s likely to steal your heart if you get too close!). See more about Shari & her band at, www.BluesRockMusic.com.

October 16, 2015: Shari released her 4th studio album, since 2005. This current record is called, “MY Obsession”. Produced by, Tony Braunagel and co produced by, Shari Puorto. This record attracted notable musicians such as, Mike Finnigan, Tony Braunagel, Johnny Lee Schell, Barry Goldberg, Jimmy Vivino, Steve Fister, Jim Pugh, Raymon Yslas, Johhny Hawthorn, Deb Ryder and more!

Blues Matters! & The Rocker, Stuart Hamilton – Writer. “vocally Ms Puorto is as good as she’s ever been, heading off into areas the likes of Bonnie Bramlett reached at her peak, and you’d be hard pressed to hear a better soulful blues singer on the circuit today. She is mining that seventies Muscle Shoals vibe to a great effect.”

Shari's band consists of: Shari Puorto vocals, John DePatie on guitar, Frank Scarpelli on bass, Mike Sauer on drums, Albert Margolis on keys/B3. Shari Puorto Band is a Blues/Rock/Roots Band with a whole lotta soul who have been touring together for many years, sharing the stage with the likes of, Tab Benoit, Jimmy Vivino, Tommy Castro, Dickey Betts, Johnny Winter, Dave Mason, Barry Goldberg, Robben Ford, Robin Trower, Walter Trout, Coco Montoya, Larry Carlton, Ike Turner, among others.

Shari Puorto's audience appeal is wide from 20 year olds to 80 years and all races and color. Once you see their show you will understand why people are captivated and come back for more. "We know how to bring an audience together and allow them to feel something deep within their souls they never thought existed." Shari says. You have to see them to really understand.

They have performed up and down the coast of California, across the U.S., and abroad (from large festivals to Blues Clubs to local hangouts). Past appearances range from, headlining at the Phuket Blues Rock Festival, Fiji Int'l Jazz/Blues Festival, Doheny Blues Festival, Gator by the Bay in San Diego, Crawdaddy Blues Festival & The Animas Blues Festival in New Mexico, Beaver Creek Blues/BBQ fest, NAMM show Anaheim, Irvine Lake Blues Festival, OC Fair (So Cal.), Lexus Jazz/Blues Festival, Antelope Valley Fairgrounds, Las Vegas Bike Fest, Long Beach Bayou Festival, King Biscuit Blues Fest (Helena Arkansas), Biscuit & Blues / San Francisco, TheTorch Club (Sacramento), Little Bear (Evergreen, CO), Knuckleheads (Kansas City), Cafe Boogaloo/Hermosa Bch, Harvelle's/Santa Monica, Powerhouse Pub / Folsom, CA, to name a few.
