About Aftershock

"AFTERSHOCK is an 9-piece jazz-rock and R&B band from the Placerville/Sacramento area.  Taking popular tunes from the 40's through the 2015, and arranging them in their own way with superb voicing's for their 3-horn section and powerful vocal harmonies, this band is designed to get you out of your seat and dancing in the aisles.  We dare you to stay seated!

 After their meeting in the late 90's "Philly' Joe Littel & Gerald Jonutz started what they hoped to be a "high energy", un-inhibited Funk, Jazz-rock, R & B band. The idea was not to limit the band to copying verbatim cover tunes but add their individual twist to the music. This idea allowed the band to create what became a very distinctive sound that grooves and creates an energy that compels you to get up and dance. The idea grew and evolved and after several line up changes Aftershock was born in 2004.

Over the last eight years, Aftershock's diverse repertoire has allowed the band to play a variety of venues, which would include; arts & wine festivals and brew fests; county fairs; Sacramento King's games; corporate events; private parties; weddings, local clubs and restaurants.  Some of our favorite seasonal events include; Placerville's Music in the Plaza; the Red Hawk Casino and The Sacramento Music Festival.
