AFTERSHOCK ROCK TRIBUTE BAND
Combining experienced entertainers who have a passion for performing , and a love of 80’s “hairband” rock - After Shock is a cover band that will give you a party blast from the past. After Shock has compiled a song list that is appealing to everyone who loves the decadence of the 80’s. We rock all of your favorite 80’s hairband tunes from bands like AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, KISS, Motley Crue', Guns N’ Roses and many more. Come on, feel the noise!
After Shock was started in 2013 when singer Tammy Mozey and lead guitarist Michael Kaut shared their love of that classic 80’s sound. Tammy grew up in a musical family , and Michael, a true axe enthusiast, has a graduate degree in guitar. Tammy loves all things Bon Jovi, particularly Jon Bon Jovi. Michael channels Eddie Van Halen for an eruption of guitar riffs. Fueled by mutual interests, the two began searching for other members to form a band.
Drummer Brent Hagan soon joined the group. Brent spiced up the mix with his crazy high energy style. He also entertains the crowd with an acoustic guitar rendition of Guns-N-Roses Patience. Cue the memories of the love-struck band groupies swaying to the beat.
Next enters bassist, Kevin Gogerty. Kevin (formerly Gene Simmons from the band Psycho Circus), is a die-hard member of the KISS Army, and has been named “Iowa’s own demon”. His musical influence comes from the gritty God of Thunder himself, Gene Simmons (tongue and all).
Next came Christian Hughes, on rhythm guitar and keys. Christian brought a whole new rockin’ vibe to the band. His pretty-boy looks bring all the Girls, Girls, Girls to the stage, begging him to Kick Start their hearts. In the summer of 2018 Christian took over the lead guitar position and continues to rock the keys.
In 2018 we added Justin Pierce on rhythm guitar. Justin has been shredding the guitar with other local bands in Des Moines since 2013. He entertains the crowd with his amazing vocals and energetic runs thru the crowd. His performance of Bad Girlfriend brings all the girls to the dance floor to Rock and Roll All Night.
After Shock comes complete with a bona fide “sound guy” Chris Onsrud with Stonebridge Audio. Having an ear for those 80’s riffs and high notes, when Chris has his hands on the controllers you WILL feel the music. He brings a professional live sound that will have you out of your seat, traveling back in time to the decade that shook us all night long, the 80s.
