H.I. Sharrieff

hashim-sharrieffI joined Local 802 because I wanted to return to my NYC roots and emulate my heroes, like Milt Hinton, Bill Crow and Marcus Miller! I’ve served as a military musician, and here in NYC I would love to work on Broadway or on other musical theatre jobs, and on recording sessions, or anywhere else. A recent favorite gig was performing at Gracie Mansion with a small jazz trio. My principal instrument is bass (acoustic and electric).
