Tell us about yourself:
Kei “Taxi” Bland - Drums

At the age of eleven (ELEVEN!) drumming prodigy Kei “Taxi” Bland was granted full adult professional status by the American Federation of Musicians. Now sixteen, he has played with some of the most preeminent names in music. That list includes Bad Company, The Outlaws, and the Allman Brothers. Kei has also been featured in DRUM! Magazine and has the honor of being “Class of 2016” Artist for Cympad International.

Kei currently attends Berklee College of Music and earned his Drum Specialist Certification at the age of 15 from Berklee.

Kei studied under Frankie Lombardi (drummer for Dickey Betts and Great Southern) and John Blackwell (drummer for Prince). He’s also taken master classes with world renowned drummers Vinny Appice, Shawn Drover, Pat Petrillo, and Derrick Roddy.

He finds time in his busy schedule to help raise money for many charitable organizations including Ride for Dime, Kids Charities, United Way, Fast Friends Greyhound Adoption, and Day of Giving (among others).

He’s endorsed by many extremely well-respected companies, including, Xcell drumsticks, Rock-n-Roll Gangstar Apparel, Salas Cymbals, Maxonix, Cympad International, Evans Drumheads, Kickass Cables, Axis pedals and many more. Make no mistake – Kei is the real deal. He’s acknowledged as one of the best drummers in today’s modern music scene. Kei brings a fresh, young energy – along with some killer drumming – to Avenging Benji, North American Misfits, and his own personal project, 4Ever Endeavour.
