Mike & The Censations

Profile:
US doo-wop influenced soul group in the mid 1960s, formed and leaded by Mike James Kirkland, along with his brother Robert (Bob Kirkland), and their sister and her husband.

Formely from Mississippi in a local gospel act, the Seven Seals, along with his two brothers, Walter and Robert, they later moved to Los Angeles around 1956. A bet with his brother Robert, that they could cut a record as good as any Motown work, in the winter of 1965, Mike & the Censations recorded their first official release “Victim Of Circumstance”. A self-released record on Robert's Bryan Records label. It made the top 50 of the R&B Charts.
