About
* “Line up all the female jazz vocalists you can think of and Sharon Rae North can sing them all under the table.” Jay Edwards, DJ WCLK-FM, Atlanta, GA

* "Sassy, sensual, soulful and spectacular…Nina Simone with a little bit of Della and Ella tossed in for color." DJ Carmen Brown of 98.3 WDLT-FM, Mobile, AL

* “No matter what you do on the outside, you're a singer on the inside.” Frances North, Sharon's Mom

Sharon Rae North is a talented songstress, whether she's singing jazz (straight-ahead, contemporary, smooth, etc.) and standards or her jazzed up, danceable versions of R&B, Rock and Top 40 hits. Her voice is just a good singing "My Funny Valentine" as it is singing "Rolling in the Deep". She often performs with corporate/wedding bands, complete with choreographed dance steps; and she performs her own shows singing jazz. One stop shopping!!

Sharon sounds just as good live as she does in the studio. She puts on a fabulous performance and has opened for many national acts, including Joe Sample and the Jazz Crusaders, Patti LaBelle. She has shared the stage with Chaka Khan, Lalah Hathaway, Stanley Clark, Boney James, Chuck Mangione, Norman Brown, Poncho Sanchez, Marcus Johnson, Bob Baldwin and many others.

She has performed at venues throughout the U.S., including the famed Georgia Aquarium, Ritz Carlton Reynolds Plantation (where country star Carrie Underwood married), Isaac Haye's Restaurant in Memphis, Twins Jazz in D.C., James River Cellars in Richmond, VA, Bayfest in Mobile, AL, Fridays at Sunset and Jazz at Maymont in Richmond, VA, Durham Summer Music Series in NC. She has been invited to perform at Jazz in Lapidariz in Croatia, CJW in Shanghai and countless other venues

Sharon Rae North does not disappoint. No matter the venue or occasion, she and her seasoned musicians take an already good event over the top!

Ms. Sharon Rae North and the "band" were a great addition to the "60th" birthday festivities. The guests enjoyed the sound of the band and Sharon's voice blew us away. The entertainment crew were very professional in manner and a pleasure to have. I did not want the party to end. I loved here from the very first sight and sound at a prior performance and when I found her on Gigmaster; I had to have her entertain my guests. Keep up the good work Sharon and thank you for having a great voice.

Sharon Rae North and her band were wonderful! Set up for our event started at 4pm. When we arrived at 4. The band was already warming up. It demonstrated their professionalism and integrity. The music for our event was amazing! It really set the tone and our guests were so impressed and happy. I personally was told many times how great the band sounded and agreed fully! Our group was very diverse and it speaks volumes that everyone only had great things to say. Sharon herself, was gracious and professional and I would recommend her and her band for any event. Thank you for making our event memorable!

Sharon was extremely professional and responsive. This event was for a opening of a new venue and I could not have made a better selection than Sharon Rae North. The entire band was a asset to the event . Everyone there loved her music and we will definitely have her return again later this spring.If you need a jazz band I would highly recommend Sharon. She was great to work with.A real jazz phenom.

Sharon and her band were very professional. They arrived on time and they were so accomondating. From day one, Sharon communicating with me and answered all of my questions. She made me feel as though I had nothing to worry about. As a matter of fact, she and I did not meet until the night of the event. We handled all of our correspondences via email and phone. However, I felt very confident that she would be there and I would have no problems. My guests enjoyed the evening and many have asked about how to contact her. Overall, she and her band were the best!!!

I cannot say enough about Ms. North. She is a wonderful lady and her band was awesome. Each one of them was extremely personable. We had an outdoor wedding without a sound system, but Ms. North worked with me and played music while I walked down the aisle. She performed a wide variety of music that appealed to everyone at the wedding, regardless of age. Our guests kept coming up to us during the reception to compliment our band selection. I would recommend Ms. North to anyone for any occasion.

We couldn't have asked for more from Sharon and her band! They did such a wonderful job; from their sweet jazzy tunes with Sharon's buttery voice to taking the stress out of all the pre-wedding planning with their fantastic attention to detail and easy-going style, we are so happy they were a part of our day. They even provided an emergency guitarist for the wedding ceremony when our original plans fell through! We have no reservations and highly recommend this group for those looking to know they've got the best show booked in town.

Sharon Rae and her band were amazing. Sharon's voice was unbelievable and her band was incredible. Everyone raved about their performance and they made the evening so special for Josh and me. My guests are still talking about the great entertainment. Not only are they all extremely talented but professional and kind. Throughout the planning process Sharon was open to ideas and musical preferences. My husband is a musician and she even allowed him to play with the band at one point which was a big hit with the guest. She listened to us and our wishes and made the event true to our personalities. In 25 years we will be tracking her down for our anniversary celebration!

Sharon and her band were extremely professional and talented. I simply cannot say enough good things about them. From consult to booking to show she was more than helpful and accommodating. She kept the lines of communication open, was readily available, timely, gracious and a true artist. My guests could not stop talking about her performance and were so very impressed with her. My only regret was that I did not have more time to spend listening to them.
