Mike Terrana started playing drums at the age of 8, playing along with bands like the Beatles & Stones¦.etc. He just loved playing & he knew at the age of 15 that he wanted to be a professional drummer. Terrana worked with many local bands in the western New York area, one thing led to another and I eventually started working with touring & recording acts. He relocated to Los Angeles in 1987, then in 1997 he moved to Europe to restart his career. Terrana currently lives in Europe and he has 43 years of professional experience. "It has been a fun ride!"
