Profile Great hard rock act from Columbus, Ohio and this is actually a collection of their records between 1988 – 1990. The band formed in the mid ’88 by Rick Soga and drummer Danny Boyd after their departure from Godz. The first line up consist by Rick Soga and Steve Mitchell on guitars, Tommy Jon on vocals (real name Tommy Gianikos), Danny Boyd on drums and bassist Ty Tyler(real name Todd Berry). Ty eventually replacing Johns with Joey C. Jones (ex-Sweet Savage, real name Joe Crabtree).

In January 1989 Boyd amicably departed and was replaced by Ken Koudelka. In autumn 1989, keyboardist Les Farrington was hired by Shock Tu to provide live and sampled backing vocals in an off-stage capacity. Musically the band rocks hard with bombastic songs, strong riffs, powerful vocals and catchy chorus with spot on production. The changes to the line-up continued until the end of the band in 1994. 

In May of 2008, original members Danny Boyd, Rikki Soga, Steve Mitchell & Todd Berry reunited with former vocalist Tim Owings to form the forth version of ShockTu. Shock Tu is currently in the studio recording past Shock Tu and new Shock Tu songs.
