Angelo Coppola - Drums/Vocals, David Frankel - Guitar, Dylan Frankel - Bass/Vocals
It all started when the three school mates decided to get together for an informal jam session. Because each individual member had been studying their respective instruments for several years, it was quickly apparent that they could try to cover just about any song they thought of. Angelo had been studying drums since he was a toddler and singing for several years. The Frankel brothers both had studied guitar since they were seven and eight years old. Nowadays, the trio can be seen performing someplace nearly every weekend. With an emphasis on musicianship and songwriting, they have achieved opportunities and success that many bands take several years to accomplish playing all over the Metro Detroit Area.
What's up with the name:
Appropriately named: Shock Wave is used to shocking audiences and making waves!

Comments: This throwback group of youngsters focus on making hard hitting, straight forward, Detroit rock & roll. SHOCK WAVE is a breath of fresh air for those who thought that authentic hard rock was dead. They have a mature sound well beyond their respective ages. In a short period of time the band has played some of the top rock venues in Metro Detroit, and have shared the stage with some of Detroit's best as well as National bands. Watch for them coming to a venue near you!
