Welcome back to this week’s episode of Drummers I Like. Today we are joined by Wes Keeley who is the owner/founder of KBrakes and former drummer for Walls of Jericho.
In this episode:
- Wes takes us from Detroit to Europe and its metal punkness!
- Out of the Paper Zone and into the studio, Wes shares how he created his own way of a drummer for hire.
- Find out why Wes puts 256 spikes on the bottom of KBrakes. The answer will surprise you.
Wes Keeley is one of the drummers who has seen the backstage all around the world and learned how to make the touring process as efficient for him. When you think of a touring drummer who wants out of the bus lifestyle but not out of drumming think of Wes. The drummer from Detroit has deep roots in metal which mean pounding double bass. Wes is proof that creativity will take you to places you have never thought you would go, as long as you have the dedication to do what it takes to make your vision reality.
Products that aren’t going anywhere
KBrakes is one of those products that you never really know you need until it’s too late. Wes found that it was better for him to go to college to get a degree and design his own product than to wait around for his drum rug or have his bass player hold his bass drum in one spot.
Check out what Wes has to say about creating and designing his own product!
KBrakes can be found at Kbrakes.com
