    Shari Rowe BandDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Country Band
    The energetic, singer-songwriter Shari Rowe, fuses classic country with bluegrass and blues-rock flair. The Lamon Records recording artist traded in private living room concerts, for the big stage, performing with acts such as Big and Rich, Duck Dynasty’s Uncle Si Robertson, Marsha Robertson, and Maddie and Tae. Shari spends most of her time on the road, taking her high energy performances as far as Europe. Her recent singles “Moonshine” and “Family Gathering” have been playing on radio stations across the country with great reviews.

    Shari’s music is defined by her Arizona childhood, where she grew surrounded by her musical family, singing by the campfire, day after day of horseback riding. Those elements, the outdoors, family, and adventure, are clear themes in her music. More importantly, Shari’s sincere soul and charisma shines through each song.

Moving west spontaneously, they met bassist Neil Erlich (17) who instantly clicked with the band. The Sink or Swim blends alternative rock with classical 60’s and 70’s influence to create their own sound they call “Desert Rock”. The band will be playing all over Arizona this year so make sure to check them out!
