Also, we'd like to invite everyone to check out an exciting new project called "THOSE AMAZING DECADES" which features current and past members of Max Headroom.
Those Amazing Decades
the bandRyan Cole - Ld Vocals
A New York City Native, Ryan Cole has been in rock bands since his early teens, and has been singing since before he knew the English language. With a Bachelor's degree in Theater/Performance, Ryan is ready to rock the stage where ever he goes, and is super pumped to have a valid excuse to sing 80's songs all day. He is currently in another band called "Ryan Cole and the Paper Souls", which is an original band that currently books shows all over NYC. He plays bass guitar and ukulele, but considers singing his main instrument.
Jen Grossi - Ld Vocals
Just like in a John Hughes film, Jennifer was born and raised outside of Chicago. Her father has been playing in a band for over 30 years, so she grew up knowing how to rock out. An MTV baby, 80s music is in her blood. She was immersed in the arts since toddlerhood, competitive dance and singing her two main activities. At 18 Jennifer moved to NYC to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy, and continued on at New School University to obtain a degree in Musical Theatre performance. When she's not performing, you can catch her leading yoga classes in NYC.
Ryan Drost - Guitar/Vocals
Born and raised in New Jersey, Ryan began studying music by taking guitar lessons at the age of 6. After graduating college, Ryan emerged into the cover scene by playing local bars and clubs in North jersey. Ryan's style is heavily influenced by Joe Satriani, Eddie Van Halen, and Steve Vai. When not performing Ryan enjoy teaching guitar lessons, which helps to strengthen his musical knowledge.
Will "Doc" Gomez - Keyboards/Vocals
As a child, keyboardist Will Gomez recalls his first instrument played was a Casio VL-Tone. Music seemed to come naturally to him. After failed attempts with the clarinet and guitar, Will finally found his comfort zone at the piano. Shying away from the rigid edges of classical music, a love for rock and pop was born. Will has attended the Institute of Audio Research in New York. Afterschool, Will formed the short lived Alt/Rock band DownWire. Will also owns and operates DownWire Entertainment, a mobile disc jockey company.
Chris Cooney - Bass Guitar/Vocals
Born and raised in Lake Hiawatha, NJ, Chris' musical journey began with piano at the age of 5. After years of playing the piano, the rock music bug drew Chris to the guitar. Shortly thereafter, Chris landed a gig as lead guitarist and songwriter in the original rock project "Emmet". In order to improve his writing process, Chris began taking bass guitar lessons and has developed an equal love for the instrument. Aside from Max Headroom, Chris could also be found playing bass with the female fronted original rock band, "The Jersey Syndicate".
Mike Sasso - Drums/Vocals
Drummer & founding member Mike Sasso is no stranger to the Jersey shore music scene. Having played drums in original projects for over 25 years, Mike is proud to say he's only been in 5 bands, all of which had moderate success and staying power in the original rock scene along the Jersey shore. His previous projects were "Mischief" (which released the record "Only Losers Left Alive" on Mutha Records), "Well of Souls", and "Without Love". Aside from playing drums in Max Headroom, Mike is also the founding member of the female fronted original rock band, "The Jersey Syndicate". The band released their debut cd "The Moon Motel" in the fall of 2010. Currently, The Jersey Syndicate's videos on thier Youtube page have a combined total of over half a million views.

Official BioIt was a different world, say those who were there, a time before iPods in a land innocent of cell phones, Crocs, grunge, hybrids, and Ryan Seacrest. Hair metal bands roamed the Earth untamed. Christi loved Billy, Ferris Bueller took the day off, and George Clooney could wear a mullet without irony. Anthropologists say it was called "the 80's" and estimate that it lasted, unchecked, for nearly a decade.
The 80's gave the world E.T., Madonna, the collapse of the Berlin Wall and Smurfs. Lady Di became a Princess, Dr. Ruth lobbied for "good sex!" and Mel Gibson was anointed People's first Sexist Man Alive. In movies, Molly Ringwald was Pretty in Pink, the Brat Pack got detention, Tom Cruise made some extra money and danced in his underwear, and Michael J Fox went Back to the Future. In politics, Donna Rice proved a (Gary) Hart stopper, and on Wall Street, masters of the universe Ivan Boesky and Michael Milken were brilliant one minute, in handcuffs the next.
And then there's the music... Bruce was Born in the USA, and Michael Jackson made it absolutely clear to anyone who would listen that Billie Jean was not, repeat not, his lover. Jon Bon Jovi was Wanted Dead or Alive, and the Flock of Seagulls Ran.
Max Headroom ruled television, and as fate would have it, has emerge again in 2012, this time as the nations premier 80's tribute band.
Formed with the desire to recreate the entire 80's vibe, Max Headroom delivers a action pack show, complete with vintage 80's costumes, incredibly tight musicianship, and their signature audience participation segments. The band is quickly becoming the area's most sought after tribute act, and has already developed a buzz as the "must see" band. Max Headroom is available for private and corporate parties, high school and college reunions, club dates, and weddings.
