Teresa Leonard | Michael Hirsh

Teresa Leonard
Teresa Leonard lives in Taneytown, MD. Teresa's favorite big band is (who else) Blue Moon, and her favorite song is "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning," which the band recorded on its sixth album, Blue Moon Big Band Caught in the Act: 10th Anniversary Celebration Live at Naylor Wine Cellars. She has been singing just about all her life, and always dreamed of being part of the timeless magic that can only be found listening to a great big band. In addition to singing on each of Blue Moon's 6 CDs, Teresa has also been contracted for several regional radio jingles and is often requested as a guest vocalist in other area bands. Her debut solo recording, The Child in Me, was released in December 2004, and has registered full album and single sales in 6 countries. She works as an Implementation Consultant at ADP in Owings Mills, MD.

* Band member since 1998

And, if you ask her, she'll tell you that she has an incredibly adorable little girl!

Michael Hirsh
Michael Hirsh has been singing with Blue Moon Big Band since 2000, and has recorded on our Nice Work if You Can Get It (2001), Baby, It's Cold Outside (2003), The Polar Bear's Pajamas (2007), and Caught in the Act (2008) albums. Originally a Jersey boy, Mike lives in Hanover, PA and has loved big band music since he was young. In fact, his father was a big band drummer and his mother was a big band vocalist. In addition to singing, Mike is an exceptional drummer and has his own classic rock band in PA. At times, he has played drums with Blue Moon as well (and even trumpet on a gig or two!). It's hard to pin Mike down for an all-time favorite musical memory; in true Mike fashion, he'll simply say, "It's all good!"

* Band member since 2000

Mike is a band and orchestra director at North Carroll Middle School in Hampstead, MD.
