So excited about this tonight! This is really one of the best things Los Gatos residents can do in town on Sunday afternoons this great summer season! Joe Sharino should be wonderful! Love this band! They're not just locally acclaimed, but their music offering is so enjoyable!

I went Sheila. It was a lot of fun. Knew Joe Sharino in High School. He went to Willow Glen High I went to Los Gatos High. Met him at the church I attended at the time. If you only knew how shy he was in High School! LOL!
