Singer/songwriter Shari Puorto and her band will appear at Bert's Bar at 7 p.m. on Oct. 17. Puorto, known as the "real deal" will bring back memories of Janice Joplin and Etta James with her vocal tone and pure natural vocal ability.

Puorto, originally from Connecticut, is an award-winning Roots/Rock/Blues singer and songwriter. She has only been performing professionally since early 2000.

"Shari has always provided a strong stage presence and delivered to her audience what her music is all about," Bert's owner Bernard Johnson said. "Her music is honest and powerful with great energy and her original material reaches right into the audience."

Puorto and her band have released their new album "Live at Bogies" while making their cross- country tour. The band began in Southern California making their way to Northern California, Nashville, St. Louis and into the south. Shari Puorto and the band will appear at many major venues and be at Berts, Wednesday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m.

From Professor Johnny P's Juke Joint blog: "Let me say this as plainly as I can. I think that Shari Puorto could be the next big breakout singer. She's got all the tools - a great voice, a top notch band, and superb writing skills. This latest album, Live At Bogies, shows that she can work a crowd extremely well and her song selection is quite moving."

"I'm constantly challenging myself both onstage and off-stage because that's how you grow and how you realize what works!" Shari says. Shari is already working on songs for her 5th Studio release (6th CD release) to come out later in 2018 or early 2019.

"With her Blues/Rock band backing you'll experience a band combining today's modern Blues/Rock approach with yesteryears traditional Blues," Johnson said. "Shari's studio music is top-notch but her live performances capture her raw energy and her connection with the audience is infectious."

Bert's Bar is at 4271 Pine Island Road on Matlacha
