Shark Island was an American rock band from Los Angeles that played during the 1980s.

The band was officially started in 1979 by singer Richard Black, whose name then was Rick Czerny, and lead guitarist Spencer Sercombe, under the name of Sharks. Czerny and Sercombe met in high school and were playing together for quite some time. Czerny was most often compared and undeservedly so to Aerosmith's Steven Tyler by Shark fans in that he wore outfits that were either oddly put together or were very colorful with things that wouldn't even classify as clothing. Czerny was also one of the first vocalists who began the trend of using a wireless microphone in the Hollywood club circuit allowing him to sing within the audience among the fans.

Sercombe, a very creative guitarist, played and worked for B.C. Rich guitars. He helped to design "The Warlock" guitar shape before it began its mass production. Moreover, Sercombe auditioned for Kiss after Ace Frehley left the band even going so far as to dye his hair jet black from his natural blonde color. However, Spencer didn't get signed with KISS losing out to Vinnie "Wiz" Vincent in 1982.
