“He has that smile with the groove you will never forget!”
Patrick Wiebers is a man of positive vibes. Rarely will you see this Eindhoven born drummer without a wide grin and obvious pleasure sitting behind his kit. Music’s his live and this passion was enkindled at a very young age.
Patrick grew up in Surinam, where he soon discovered the rhythmic sounds of Kawina music. It marked the starting point of a live filled with music. Beating the drums led to playing the guitar. The guitar to the bass, and from the bass back to the drums.
At age fourteen, he was very sure: he was going to do what drummers such as Steve Gadd (Paul Simon / Steely Dan) and Dennis Chambers (Santana / Parliament / George Duke) did. Later, Tony Royster Jr. (En Vogue / Jay-Z) and ?uestlove (The Roots) would also join his list of inspirational figures. He made his first steps as a professional musician in gospel, playing with artists like Muriel Blijd, Uche Agu, Chy Kyra, Bergit Loïs, Pearl Josefzoon.
He made the transition to pop with Edsilia Rombley and Chaka Laisina, among others. Now, he drums in a vast variety of bands, such as Zwazi Soulsoup, TurboMonster, Chaka and Friends en de Isaac Bullock Band. Besides Jaxswing, Gintronix and Boombox he also plays or has played with SoundsFunky, Datfunk, Soul Live, Maestro Mikel and the Einzelgang, Re-Play under MD Ruben Drenthe(Maher Zain, Usher, Akon and many more). As a freelance drummer too you might see him play with different great musicians in the country like Giovanka, David Dam, Big Boy Caprice, Sarah Jane Boss etc etc.
