Shock (3)

Profile:
In 1981, after the release of their breakout single "Let's Get Crackin," Rolling Stone magazine picked Shock as one of the top ten new artists of the decade. With comparisons to P Funk, Earth Wind and Fire, and Cameo, the expectations were high. And although the band did follow up with subsequent hits "Electrophonic Funk" (1982) and "Waiting on Your Love" (1983), a constellation of factors eventually brought this 1st chapter of Shock to a close. Shortly thereafter band leader/ keyboardist Roger Sause, producer/guitarist Marlon Mclain, and bassist Joe Plass began writing, recording and touring with smooth jazz star Kenny G. Then, in 1989 Sause and Mclain hooked up again to produce a more pop-oriented Shock album. Even though the single "Talk About Love" got a lot of airplay (particularly in Europe and Australia where it hit #1 on many dance charts), the project seemed to lack the magic of the original Electrophonic Funksters and once again Shock fell off the radar screen. This had to be the end---right? So in the early 1990s Sause and Mclain both moved to Los Angeles, where Roger began playing keyboards and touring with cross-over Christian icon Michael W. Smith, while Marlon became a full-time member of the grammy award winning Dazz Band. Roger formed a live music production company called Perfect World Entertainment, and Marlon continued to work with the Dazz Band, The Ohio Players, Charlie Wilson and a myriad of other elite artists . -CD Baby
