Aftershocker is a rock band. Their music erupts from an exhaustive search for what rocks. Can an accordion rock? Can a band reference C.S. Lewis and rock? Does a band bring the passion to rock to every show? These six young, talented, and damn good looking musicians demand yes, yes, yes.
Peers respect them, fans love them, and everyone who hires Aftershocker comes away impressed. Before you hear what people are saying, you should know Aftershocker:

Unfairly gifted Matthew Cooley provides lead vocals
Psychotically obsessed Dylan Haas lends back up vocals and rhythm guitar
Sexually emboldened Dave Marchand shreds on lead guitar
Manically inclined Chris Choate plays bass
Endearingly versatile Josh Rau handles accordion, harmonica, keyboard, and sax
Smolderingly modest Ralph Patterson III supplies drums

“Imagine Timothy Leary and Larry Flynt, hanging out in the late 70's, grooving to the latest Warren Zevon record, wondering if future generations will manage to maintain such originality and musical courage... Well, I think that's what Aftershocker is doing right now."
-Nate Mezmer, Bay area Hip- Hop insider

“Aftershocker puts on a quality, high energy show. I was impressed with the bands interaction with the audience and the obvious fun that they were having during their performance. With original songs that are, in my opinion very good, I think Aftershocker is a band that has incredible potential.”
-Douglas Trost, Manager
O'Kearney's Fun House in Walnut Creek, CA

“Not only are these guys extremely professional but they do a great job of engaging the crowd and pumping it up. I look forward to bringing Aftershocker back… Aftershocker rocks.”
-Matthew Warren, Executive Chef
Sudwerk's in Davis, CA

At their shows you might see co-eds in low-cuts writhing in front of the stage, the rock aficionado nodding his bandana-ed head in time, and the bartender cracking a smile after catching a few lyrics. Delivering rock’s irresistible hooks and driving rhythms while challenging every expectation of the genre, Aftershocker updates the classic with their own twisted musical vision.
This is Aftershocker, this is the ultimate rock experience.
