West Wheeler, born in Mobile, AL has been providing rhythm for quite some time. Ever since getting his first toy drum set when he was 4, he has been enjoying that boom bap for forty plus years.
He spent the summer of his 16th year in Boston at the famed Berklee College of Music styding with the likes of Steve Wilkes. Then on to Delta State University as a Music major with a business minor. Once West found his true love, Musician’s Institute in Hollywood, California; was where he decided to study. Having the ability to study with more than just drummers, spend all of his time practicing, playing and recording he found home. West learned from Casey Scheurelle, Matt Laug, Gary Gabratini, Owen Goldman and Fred Dinkins. This was more education in one year than four at many other schools.
Upon graduation, young Wheeler played in quite a few bands, driving the beat and recording for Shoot the Moon, Johnson, Bruce Hazel and Bimbo Du Jour, then discovering Truck Patch Revival brought a new life to a band and a man.
