DeClassified

DeClassified is a group of professional musicians with years of experience in all types of venues, large and small. Their popularity among the local clubs has rapidly grown not only because of their musical talent, but also because of their on-stage antics and interactivity with the crowd. DeClassified often has many different guest musicians perform with them and even allow people in the audience to join. Always expect a great time when they take the stage!!!

Style: Rock (Classic & Modern)

Members: Allen Hendrickson <<< Guitar/Vocals >>> ------------------------------------------------------------------ Along with Dick Mazza, Allen is one of the founding members of Declassified. Whether playing lead guitar or rhythm, Al is comfortable in either role, knowing when to step back and let his fellow guitarist shine…and knowing when to crank it up. Starting from 1975 with a solid grounding in jazz, he has played lead and rhythm guitar in other genres of music including classic rock, heavy metal, country and alternative with such bands as Head First, Spellbound, Cyborg and Trick Monkey, as well as a stint at bass with What Day Is It. Prior to joining Dick in Declassified, Al wrote, recorded and produced 5 CD’s of original compositions with Maw Decker. Though not a commercial success, this gave him valuable studio and arrangement experience and helped develop his own unique approach to guitar. _______________________________________________________________________ Dick Mazza <<< Mgr/Sound/Dums >>> ------------------------------------------------------------------ Dick started the band from scratch via the "Classified" section of Craigslists and thus the name "DeClassified". He is the guy responsible for managing all aspects of the band including recruiting, auditioning, directing and sound. A student of the famous Grant Menefee School of Drumming and original drummer for DeClassified, he now only occassionally sits in on drums and concentrates more on managing, promoting and booking. Dick also designed and maintains the bands website and all other media tools such as MD Party, Reverbnation and Facebook. As a drummer, manager, promoter or sound reinforcement person, Dick has been involved with local bands for more years than he cares to admit to and his years of showmanship knowledge has a lot to do with the success of DeClassifed. ____________________________________________________________________________ Jerry Christianson <<< Male Lead Vocals/Guitar >>> ------------------------------------------------------------------ Declassified welcomes Jerry to our family as he heads up the role of male lead vocalist. As powerful on the guitar as he is with his vocals, Jerry will have you yelling for more at every performance. From A to Z Jerry has done it all and drove everyone crazy along the way, especially the audience.His talent stretches over decades of professional performances with multiple instruments, bands and marriages.....lol. Being the comedian that he is, Jerry says BFD.... I sing and play guitar. I'm NFG....so WTF.... now you guys are stuck with me! (That's why we love him) ____________________________________________________________________________ Roger Gumbs <<< Bass/Vocals>>> ------------------------------------------------------------------ Yes he is back. Many of our earlier fans will remember Roger. He was our first bass player back in 2009 when we first started gigging. Roger was a big factor to our early success and will continue to be a big part of our future.  He left the band in June of 2010 to pursue playing original music for a Baltimore based punk band, The Snallygasters, but returned to DeClassified after learning that our current bassist was leaving due to new job responsibilities that meant increased out of state travel. Roger was as excited as we were that he had an interest to return to DeClassified, plus he can again exchange horrifically bad jokes with Allen. In addition to DeClassified and Snallygasters, Roger also played in the modern rock band Nth Degree and the 80's metal band Rust. ____________________________________________________________________________ Kelly Mac <<< Vocals & Percussion >>> ------------------------------------------------------------------ Colleen McDonough, affectionately known as Kelly Mac, always dreamed of singing on stage. She found her opportunity in her 40’s and took it. As a child Kelly sang in the choir, wrote songs in college and even had an enjoyable summer singing acoustic with a friend. Life and career impaired her stage pursuits . Fast forward to today. Kelly and her husband threw a party and hired DeClassified as the band. From the urgings of her best friend Judy, she got up and sang Bobby Magee for a few friends. The rest is history, a few months later, Kelly was officially asked to join the band and has been singing ever since. Her Motto is- Your dreams are always just around the corner, you just must rise up to meet them. ___________________________________________________________________________ John Buckley - <<< Drums/Vocals >>> ------------------------------------------------------- DeClassified auditioned John in February 2012 and offered him the open position on the spot. We liked what we heard on drums and his vocals and didn't want to lose him to another band. John has been playing drums on and off for 25 years and has played in bands such as Gram Positive, Strait Shooter, and most recently, Runnin With Scizors. He enjoys playing classic rock and modern rock. His influences are John Bonham, Bill Ward, and Neil Peirt. John says when the crowd is having a good time that is what makes all of the hard work worthwhile. John would like to thank all his past band mates for their support and friendship, and all the friends who over the years have come out to watch him display his talent.
