No Class was formed from a loose association of songwriters, pickers and friends that hung out at a Fort Worth live music pub called MacHenry's. They realized that we enjoyed each others music and decided it would be fun to be in a band together. They were right! The band name came from founding member Steve Long's day time gig as a high school teacher. The band usually books shows when there is "no class" the next day.
No Class performs songs by a "who's who" of legendary songwriters, digging deep into the Texas and Americana catalog, with songs both familiar to audiences and at times, illuminating for the listner. Most of all, the band delivers a raucous night of crowd-pleasing entertainment.
The band is comprised of Steve Long (guitar & vocals), Mike Kelley (lead guitar & vocals), Chris Allen Curtis (lead guitar & mandolin), Ed Rogers (drums & vocals) and David Clay (bass).

Mike Kelly is packing up and moving to North Carolina so we wanted to do a farewell show. Joining us will be Mike's other band, Watershed, featuring Gerald Ray and Steve Springer. Mike has been in ensembles with various members of No Class for nearly two decades. We hope all of our friends will join us for a night of celebration and goodbyes. Come early for great food and Skylar Payne's songwriter show.
