Point of Rock was formed by guitarist Mike Jensen and drummer John Saum. Each is a veteran of the Frederick music scene and each brings many years of experience to the group. Jensen is from Wheaton, MD and has been playing guitar for over 35 years. Most recently he was part of The 351 South Band. Saum is from Hagerstown, MD. He started playing the drums in elementary school and continued through high school. After a break, he started playing again in 2010 with Jensen in the band Critical Feedback. Later the two formed That 70's Band.
In 2023 Saum stepped down and veteran drummer Doug Tepper stepped in to take over. He has played in several area bands and has helped the band keep going without losing momentum.
Phil Lazo is a guitarist and vocalist from Rockville, MD. He joined That 70's Band in 2017. He spent nine years with the Annapolis based Christian rock group Northbound. They released three albums between 2001-2010. His musical influences are Boston, Journey, The Eagles, and Phil Keaggy.
Danny Rucker has been laying down the bass back bone for several decades for bands in the area. Back in the earlier days he recorded two 45 originals and was a studio musician on several records with gospel and Jazz bands. Danny finally settled into the Band “Flyer” which played in the area for over 15 years. After a break, Danny decided to start looking to get back into the music scene last year. He came across “Point of Rock” and it was an instant fit. The song selections were perfect and the comradery was even better. Danny's influences are very wide and come from all types of music, but Chris Squire was one of the most important influences on his music style.
