Sharif – who is currently earning his Masters at the Berklee College of Music – has made quite a name for himself on the touring front, vacillating from playing intimate solo acoustic shows of his original material to belting out cover tunes (from Rihanna’s “Disturbia” to Maroon 5’s “Won’t Go Home Without You” to Beastie Boys “Girls”) at biker bars to playing one of his favorite genres of music, oldies, at retirement centers (because he wants to, not because he has to) to corporate gigs for Gap and Amstel Light to opening for the likes of Jason Mraz, Kenny Loggins, Rhett Miller, Rusted Root, and Blake Shelton.

“Music consumes me,” explains Sharif, who has approximately 2,000 shows around the world under his belt. “I just love playing music, teaching music, learning more about music, and doing whatever I can to get there.”

JOHN LUSKEY
May 22 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

John Luskey, a Southern Maryland native, grew up listening to his family’s extensive record collection. By the age of 13, he had learned enough guitar to join his first band and write his first song. His first show was only in front of a handful of people. By the time he was 18, he had made a name for himself in Southern Maryland and the surrounding areas.
After playing music for over 20 years, John finally found two guys that shared his passion for performing live music; Jack Bannister (Bass) and Dwayne Taylor (Drums). Their straight-ahead, good-time music has become a staple in the DC, MD, and VA music scene and the trio has performed with Kenny Chesney, Brooks-n-Dunn, Rascal Flatts, and Toby Keith, just to name a few. And John and his band were the first unsigned band to ever play WMZQ Fest.

He has received awards from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest for “Honky Tonk Rhythm” and from Billboard Magazine for “When She Cries” and “King Of The World”.
