Sign up for Broadjam today to follow The Sharp & Harkins Band, and be notified when they upload new stuff or update their news!

In front-men and founders Andy Sharp & Ryan Harkins, the SHB has formidable songwriters, guitar players, and vocalists able to deliver elements of rock, folk, and blues into their Indie style; Colin Schaeffer & Justin Barak provide the tight beats and grooves of the heart-pounding rhythm section. Mike "Mouse" Adams, the newest addition to the group, is one of the most talented blues harmonica players in the region.

Drawing from the slide guitar riffs of Ben Harper and John Butler, the Sharp & Harkins Band delivers their innovative rock sound with "an insistent up-tempo back-beat, a funk-influenced bassist, and cool, whispered lyrics," as proclaimed by the Badger Herald.

Whether they are rocking Summerfest for a crowd of thousands, the Metro in Chicago for hundreds, or clubs with merely a few dozen patrons, the Sharp & Harkins Band perform their music with energy and vision.

My name is Brent Hoffmann and I am the Executive Director of the 2010 Industry Meltdown Midwest Music Summit.
I would like to personally invite you to attend this year's IMMMS. September 17th-18th
Have you ever asked yourself:
(1) How can I get more paying gigs?
(2) How can I get my songs on the radio?
(3) How can I meet industry pros so they can listen to my music?

All of those questions and more will be addressed at this year's event. You don't want to miss this opportunity. Seats are limited and tickets are almost gone.
