Mike Keppel

Bass Drummer

Mike Keppel came late to the pipe band world, while driving his piper son to pipe band practices. Since then, he has played bass for a number of Chicago area pipe bands, including Tunes of Glory, Glenshinnoch, Chicago Academy of Piping and Drumming, and now City of Chicago Pipe Band. When he is not playing with the band, he is busy raising the next generation of pipers and drummers, having a son who is a piper and two daughters who play tenor drum with the band.
