MICROPHONE HEROES BAND:

Gary Kleinman - Guitar, Synthesizers, Vocals

Gary Kleinman is a Los Angeles-based mutli-instrumentalist and vocalist.  He began playing in bands when he was in middle school.  While in high school his band was signed to Warner Bros. Records, and he worked at legendary recording studio Sound City where he learned engineering from several renowned record producers.  He worked his way through college with his band playing weddings and private events... hundreds of them!
 
Gary worked for the Walt Disney Studios for 23 years and at the same time continued his music career.  He composed and produced music for television and radio commercials, as well as jingles -- including the TV broadcast themes for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team, and Los Angeles Kings hockey team.

Gary continued to play in bands his entire adult life and performed at clubs and events throughout southern California.  His popular groups included BackTrax, Electricity, and Dreamboat Annie - a Heart tribute band.

In addition to being a musician, Gary is a technologist.  He has incorporated many new instrumental techniques into Microphone Heroes.  This includes his use of guitar synthesizers and programming technology that can create the sounds of virtually any instrument including strings, keyboards, brass, woodwinds, horns and more.  He also developed Microphone Heroes' exclusive Sing-Sync system that keeps the lyrics on the singer's video monitor in sync with the live band.

Arla Terrell - Vocals

Arla Terrell has been singing all of her life.  At a young age she found herself competing and singing at any talent show nearby. She won several beauty pageants, singing her way to the Miss Washington finals. At one point she had to choose between a career as a stewardess or a vocalist -- for her the choice was easy.  After fronting many bands throughout California plus Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe, and Reno, her love for entertaining keeps going and going.  One of her favorite things -- bringing others up on stage -- is a perfect match for Microphone Heroes live band karaoke! 

Arla always brings fun and excitement to the stage along with her own down to earth gutsy singing style.

Steve Brooks - Lead Guitar

Steve Brooks started playing acoustic guitar at age eight because
his parents wouldn’t let him have a piano or drums in their tiny Brooklyn apartment. After a couple of years, he installed an electric pickup on his acoustic guitar, plugged it into their Hi-Fi, and got even with them!

By the time he was in high school, Steve was playing in multiple bands, doing club dates, and performing throughout New York City and the Catskills.

After moving to Los Angeles, Steve took a hiatus from music to concentrate on his family and career (Information Technology for several major Hollywood Studios) until friend and co-worker, Gary Kleinman, persuaded him to join a cover band he was forming, and he’s been active ever since.

Besides classic rock, Steve’s favorite music includes jazz (
George Benson) and, to his bandmates’ dismay, disco!

Ron Henderson - Drums

Ron Henderson’s musical journey started in junior high school playing timpani in the orchestra, conducting the band as a teacher’s assistant, and playing drums in the award winning stage band performing numerous concerts, festivals -- including the Hollywood Bowl as a winner in a national battle of the bands. Simultaneously he cut his rock and roll teeth in bands after school playing Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Who, The Stones, and The Beatles. Before graduating high school, he started doing recording sessions in some of the best studios in Los Angeles, playing in original bands, and performing five to six nights per week in some of the highest profile R&B/dance bands in the Los Angeles and Orange County club circuit (Big Daddy’s, Red Onion…), and casinos in Las Vegas, Reno, and Lake Tahoe.
 
Ron continued his musical education taking courses and playing in the bands at the California State University Northridge, and Los Angeles Valley Junior College. He also studied privately with renowned drummers Ralph Humphrey, Joe Porcaro, Freddy Gruber, Murry Spivak, and Les DeMerle.
 
A small sample of Ron's gigs that followed graduation from school:  First call session drummer at Warner/Chappell publishing, percussionist for the Pasadena Philharmonic Orchestra, a member of teen idol Leif Garrett’s band for a major South East Asian tour, drummer for Chez Vous (pop/rock on JVC Japan record label), Zerimar (high energy Latin R&B band on GEM/Warner Latin record label), Kelly Lynn Gitter (Country/Rock tour in the United States  and Europe), Spencer Davis (local performances), A Taste of Honey (known for their hit, Boogie Oogie Oogie - at Japan festivals), Steve Vai (fusion), and Foreign Exchange (CBS Canada record label - west coast tour).
 
Over the next decades Ron has played in numerous cover, blues, and national-level tribute bands. A few acts worth noting include Chris Bell (Blues), Stoney Curtis (Blues), Brad Wilson (Blues), Grand Illusion (Styx tribute), Midnight Rider (Allman Brothers tribute), Smokin’ (Boston tribute), and Heartbreaker (Pat Benatar tribute).
 
Ron’s seasoning in so many musical styles allows him to drive Microphone Heroes' extremely diverse song repertoire.
