Tobias Koplin

Drums

Nach einem musikalischen Start am Klavier zog es Drummer Tobias mit 15 hinters Drumset. An der Schlagzeugschule Drummer’s Focus holte er sich sein Fundament aus Technik und Theorie.

Ganz im Sinne von schnörkellos trommelnden Meistern wie Ringo, Phil Rudd und Charlie Watts war sein Credo aber immer: „It’s the song, not the drummer“. Mit Bands wie „Lunchbreak Rodeo“, „McGraw“, „The Ukelites“, „Happy Motors“, und „The Majestic Five“ spielte er Country, Swing, Pop, R’n’B und Garage Rock in Clubs in und um München, Frankfurt und Wien. Zu „Gainesville“ stieß der gebürtige Münchner im Dezember 2019.

Tobias started his musical career with the piano. At the age of 15 however, he chose to play the drums. He earned his technical and theoretical skills at Drummer’s Focus in Munich.

With the likes of Ringo Starr, Phil Rudd and Charlie Watts his guiding principle is always: „It’s the song, not the drummer“. He played Country, Swing, Pop, R’n’B as well as Garage Rock in bands such as Lunchbreak Rodeo, McGraw, The Ukelites, Happy Motors and The Majestic Five. The clubs in Munich, Frankfurt and Vienna were the main locations for his shows.

Born in Munich he happily joined Gainesville in December 2019.
