Weber, Allen: Hot Shock (NO LABEL)

Label: NO LABEL    
Released in: USA    

"Journeyman musician Allen Weber emerged from Chicago's music scene. At age 7 he learned to play piano. At age 11 he switched to trumpet. And at age 15 he finally moved to guitar, though he originally wanted to be a bass player after watching the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show. As Weber put it "There were two guitars and only one bass, so I wanted to play bass."

He played his first gig in a combo at age 16 for a school event and never looked back. Moving to small "hole in the wall" clubs he continued honing his musical chops, moving up the musical food chain to bigger name clubs, and small venue concerts, then on to tours in the USA and Asia including venues such as Chicago's venerable Arie Crown Theater, and numerous recording sessions.

After moving to Hawaii in 1979 Weber formed a Country band playing at premier clubs in Honolulu and Waikiki, leaving in 1980 for LA Weber began doing some session work, and performed in several bands. Relocating again in the mid 1990′s to New York City Weber continued to do a bit of session work and performed in some bands, before stopping playing professionally for some time. Moving to Jacksonville Florida in 2000, Weber again picked up his musical career, and finally in 2012 formed a fusion band called Hot Shock which has performed at local Jacksonville area clubs and regional festivals. He created the sub-genre of fusion called Sandunga Fusion meaning Groove with EnergyGroove with Energy.

Weber composed and arranged songs, hired musicians and then recorded the debut Sandunga Fusion album recorded and released in 2013 under the name Allen Weber Hot Shock. The album was produced by Weber as well."-Hot Shock website
