“Sharkey McEwen plays with full, round, ringing tones that hang in the air
or the mind, like Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour; But he also plays earthy slide guitar
nearly as well as Sonny Landreth or Derek Trucks.” – The Daily Gazette

Sharkey & The Sparks!

Sharkey McEwen (me!) and Ben McEwen (Ben!) my son who just turned 14, made our debut as “Sharkey & The Sparks” at The Towne Crier Café in Beacon, NY on Friday, November 3, 2017, before a full house of enthusiastic listeners. Our 14 song set, consisting primarily of covers ranging from swinging surf instrumentals to modern day romantic ballads, as well as a few new Sharkey originals passed with flying colors according to a recent review.
We did our first follow up show on Jan 18th which featured extra Sparks: Michelle & Ruby McEwen as special guest vocalists. We are really enjoying ourselves and the rapport we’re having with our audiences.

Looking forward to seeing you all again real soon!
