BAND HISTORY

The band has now been with it's current
line up for over 5 years, however, it was
not that easy to find the perfect quartet!

The band originally started out with 2
guitar playing mugwumps and a bunch of
other players, known as "The Entire
Sonora Navy" (Heck, we even had a violin
player for a while!)  After playing out for
while, John was the first to become a
permanent member of the "Navy", then
George and finally our old drummer, Brian
Thompson.   After a few years however,
one of the guitar playing mugwumps left.   

It was at this time that we all decided that it
was time to retire the band name.  
Someone came up with the name "Shell
Shock".  (Not Steve, believe it or not!)   
After a couple of years, Brian left the band
and we found Charlie.  It was at this point
that we realized that there would be no
need to find anyone else - ever.   The four
of us get along in a way that most of us
have never seen.  This is evident if you
come out to see us.   We are just 4 guys,
making noise, having a few drinks with our
friends (you all) and having fun.    And, no
matter how much we like to pat ourselves
on the back when we play well, it is still the
Crowd that makes it all so magical for
each of us.


BAND'S GOAL

Shell Shock really has only a couple of
goals.   At the top of the list is to make
sure that you all (the Crowd) have a fun
night!  Secondly, to try to play music the
best we can, sound as authentic as
possible and to play songs that everyone
enjoys listening or dancing to.   That's
about it.  If you ever come out to see us,
you will hear Steve say, "Remember
people, if it weren't for all of you, none of
this would be necessary!".

The guys have the same belief now that
they did back in the 'old days' when
everyone said,  "It's the bar's job to get
them all here.   It's our job to keep them all
here!"   The only difference between now
and then:   It seems to be our job to get
them to the club now.....hence, this
website!!!
