About Culture Shock
Culture Shock was formed in July 2000 with 5 members (Michael Briney, Gene Lesniewski, Donn Aukerman, Kim Wilson and Drew Miller) and began playing Northeast Ohio’s local clubs in early 2001 doing cover songs only.
In mid 2001 Drew Miller left the band and Doug Rozenek joined up. The band continued to play the local clubs for the next 6 years with this lineup.
Gene Lesniewski and Donn Aukerman left Culture Shock in late 2006.
With the addition of John Borzea as our new lead singer and Beverly Richards our new Rhythm Guitarist, Culture Shock returned to the stage in late 2007. This new lineup is going strong with new original music, new gear and lots of new attitude! We are currently recording our first full length album, “Celebrity”, which should be out by Summer 2009. We are also members of the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce. Our website has been featured in the Canton Repository Online and the “Surfer Site of the Day” and the band has been featured in the “Local Entertainment” section.
