Long time music veteran, and all around power-house, Mike Hansen, just finished a performance with Racer X legend Bruce Bouillet, and his first with his new Beier 1.5 Steel Snare--5.5 x 15. Bruce has assembled an all-star cast for this new & incredible band. Mike used the 1.5 Steel--5.5 x 15 for their show at The Whisky this last Monday, January 9th. They will also be performing at NAMM this year. This is his new go-to snare, and will be heard live with Bouillet, when Mike is out on the road with Hurricane this coming year, and upcoming studio projects. Check the links below to Bruce's site for tour dates & updates on Hurricane.

Mike has had an extensive career and has performed and/or recorded with Hurricane, Steve Vai, George Lynch, Richie Kotzen, The Coasters, Glass Tiger, Leif Garrett, The Pointer Sisters, and Paula Abdul. It was great to hear that he absolutely loved the 1.5--5.5 x 15, and even the band made note of it. Will be updating this story with more new pics and clips. Thank You Frances Deutsch for use of this great pic from The Whisky, & Thank You Mike Hansen for everything...
