Born in Chicago, KJ Moman grew up down south in Jackson, MS when, at the age of 12, began playing the french horn in school (1st chair french horn for 3 out of 6 years. All-City Band for 6 years.) and playing drums in the school stage band, school choir and nightclubs down south and recording in studios such as Malaco Recording Studios, Talk of the Town and a few others while touring with bands and artists such as The Soul Unlimited (*Rise Everybody, *Boogie), Tommy Tate (The School Of Life) & Southern Passion, and McKinley Mitchell (The Town I Live In, The End Of The Rainbow, *Falling For Your Love) as well as working with many local artists in the area. After moving to Atlanta, KJ was able to get in some studio work at Jam Studios, ESP Studio and Studio One in Doraville while touring with Wisdom (*Drifting, *Funky People), Guinyard (*Guinyard Jazz LP), and The Shorty Watkins Band (*Little Girl). After leaving Atlanta, KJ worked with Johnnie Taylor (Disco Lady, I Believe In You, Cheaper To Keep Her, Who's Making Love, etc...) on his "After Hours Joint" tour. About 1 year later KJ would find himself working in Tokyo, Japan for 7 months in a house band, Foreign Matter, in the upscale Club ViVi also performing in Yokohama and spending a couple of weekends in Seoul, South Korea. After coming back home to the U.S.A., KJ would begin touring with Dorothy Moore (Misty Blue) on her "Feel The Love" tour. All these experiences along with many others have lead to the current solo project... Magic Times.
Thanks & Enjoy!
