In the fall of 2003, there was a drought. The seas of Rock and Roll had dried up leaving only an arid desert of whiny, sad love songs, and mediocre hip-hop. Realizing the gravity of the situation, Dylan Haas threw away his saxophone, picked up a guitar, and joined with Matt Cooley to start their own band that honored the awesome Rock they grew up with and let people know that Rock music wasn�t just for "old guys."
In December of that same year, they united with jack-of-all-trades Josh Rau and drummer Ralph Patterson to create the classic-rock cover band "Shocker." However, feeling that the band had more to offer than merely cover songs, the guys began to work furiously on originals. Always the perfectionists, they were only satisfied unleashing an original if it was in "pristine" condition.
Their patience paid off.
The band''s songwriting and musical talent was apparent with the inception of their first original: Ballad of the Beast. Ballad tells the tale of a lost young man who, having lost his lover, embarks on an endless quest to exact vengeance on those who had taken from him that which he held most dear.
Dylan''s looping guitar riffs and Deuce''s tear-evoking saxophone combine to create the perfect backing for Cooley''s haunting voice in this story of conflicting feelings and twisted emotions.
Their next masterpeice, Born to Rock, portrays the band''s motto "I was born into this world to rock/ and until I die, the rock will never stop."
In the spirit of Ballad and Born to Rock, the band continued to write over 20 originals varying from the tongue-in-cheek love ballad Three, to fan favorites Nasty Nancy and My Roommate''s Girlfriend.
With the combination of fresh originals and the addition of lead guitarist Dave Marchand and bad-boy bassist Chris Choate in the spring of 2005, the band found their own sound based on their Rock and Roll forefathers, but twisted to the band''s demented sensibilities. They became AfterShocker: a Rock band unlike any other in the world. Dedicated to songwriting, showmanship, professionalism, and most of all Rock music, AfterShocker is the ultimate rock experience!
