KEVIN KAPLER: DRUMS

BIO

Kevin Kapler is an American drummer based in Los Angeles. Born and raised in New York City, Kevin comes from a distinguished musical pedigree. His father, Bruce Kapler, spent 20yrs as the saxophonist/vocalist on David Letterman's ‘The Late Show’. As such, Kevin’s upbringing around the industry well informed him in his inevitable career path.

His realization that being “no drama” and meticulously prepared was a common thread linking the successes of those he admired, and had the privilege to observe up close. It was at the conclusion of a 2006 recording session with legendary engineer/producer Eddie Kramer (Hendrix, LED Zeppelin, Peter Frampton, that Kevin found himself near brow-beaten by Kramer to move to LA. Advice Kevin took the following year. Almost on arrival, he was recruited for a long standing residency at the famed Cat Club where he was quickly welcomed into the fraternity of LA’s elite musicians.

Since 2007, Kevin has toured N. America, S. America, Europe, and the U.K. with a variety of bands and artists including Crazytown, Dizzy Reed, and Phil X and the Drills to name a few. Kevin's work ethic is beyond reproach and welded to a groove that’s hard and deep, It’s what keeps Kevin in almost constant demand these days. Guns ‘n Rose’s Dizzy Reed is fond of saying “I don’t ever have to look, I can tell when I walk in, it’s Kapler on drums.”
