Born and raised in West Virginia, Billy Kesner grew up with sports and the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, boxing, football, baseball, basketball, swimming and diving were daily activities. Later in high school Billy joined theater class and found a passion for performing arts. He then started teaching himself drums and would write/record songs with his best friend.

After high school Billy started a construction company and a later a sound company. But after watching blueman group while on vacation in Vegas, he knew what he wanted from life.

He quickly sold all his belongings and moved to Vegas to be a performer. Starting off doing runway modeling, acting, and small gig work, you can now find Billy playing with multiple bands on the strip. He also performs with a group called the “Drumbots”, flying around the world playing corporate/sporting events.

Billy brings his athletic background into his drumming for SWAGGERMOUTH with aggressive and explosive performances and rigorous practice routines.

When not drumming Billy likes to enjoy the outdoors, travel, cook, build drums and read. He hopes to one day start a drumming program that utilizes health and nutrition with fundamentals to help other drummers reach their full potential.

In addition to the custom drums & cymbals that he builds himself, Billy uses and Tama Drums, Yamaha Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, DW hardware, and Vic Firth sticks.
