Shock Value

Our band was formed in early 2013 when Michael Dino and Joey Letcher got the idea to combine their musical talents for a high school talent show. We added good friend John "DJ Swierch" to handle sound equipment. Through a mutual friend, Shock Value added Matt Malloy as full time drummer in May 2013. After a few more lineup shifts, the band added Graham Wolk as bassist beginning for the 2015 tour, as well as Will Halko and Erik Cudo exclusively for touring and WoodShock 2015.

Shock Value has been active throughout the Hazleton area for two and a half years, playing gigs such as Funfest, the American Cancer Society telethon, and our own annual music festival, WoodShock. 2016 is proving to be the biggest year yet, as we're currently recording our debut EP, The ShockWave EP.

We are looking to get signed to an indie label as soon as possible in order to reach as many people as we can. We want to spread our story, and it starts with you!
