Miramichi, New Brunswick’s Mike "Machine" Mallais began playing drums at the age of two on a Sears catalogue drum set called Blue Thunder. By the age of four Mike had destroyed that drum set and began using his grandmother’s knitting pins on everything and anything he could find as replacements for his demolished kit. His parents, with grandmother’s approval, finally invested in a real drum kit for him.

He immediately focused on the Heavy Metal genre, with its fast and furious drum styling. In first grade, Mike had been studying Metal for two years and had a handle on the drum techniques of classic metal bands such as; Iron Maiden, Ozzy and Metallica. Mike became obsessed with these three bands, learning even the finest detail about them and their drummers. Metal was his initial passion to the true sense of the word.

Mike Machine is adept in a multiple of genres and is a multi-instrumentalist and world-class drummer. He was the session drummer on Red Ochre’s most recent album "Spirit Of Dreams,” and performed with East Coast Music Award winners “George Paul and the Red Ochre Band.” His astounding foot speed enabled him to win
