MIKE MORAN hails from Los Angeles, California. His musical background includes a hitch in the United States army as a drummer in the 72nd Army Band for 3 years, as well as in a Special Services touring band on both the American east and west coasts. During that time, Mike had the opportunity to play with highly-qualified musicians from all over the United States. After 30+ years of playing the drums in pubs, recording studios, and on stage with bands he put together or joined, from Los Angeles, California to Vancouver, British Columbia, and many points in between, Mike relocated to Los Angeles (Long Beach) California and is currently forming a 4-5 piece rockin' blues band available for musical projects in the Los Angeles area.
