Zach Keener grew up in Katy, Texas, and was raised on classic rock. Zach started playing the drums at the age of 12 after being introduced to them by his father, a fellow drummer, and soon became enamored with the style of John Bonham. He joined his first rock band, Hailstone, in junior high. Hailstone would continue to perform together throughout their high school years, eventually recording a full-length album. Zach would go on to perform and record with a number of original groups before joining Whole Lotta Led. As a huge Led Zeppelin fan, Zach is thrilled to get to embody his biggest musical influence.
