"First of all my family is very musically. My dad played in bands his whole live so its not that astounding that I already got my first drum kit when I was 6. It was a 3-piece kit with an old ride cymbal. I learned some beats from the drummer of my fathers band and I started to play with some Bruce Springsteen and Steppenwolf tapes."Jaap started to take drumlessons and got a bigger 5 piece kit (a blue Maxwin) when he was about 9 years old. By then he got his first Nirvana and Guns n' Roses tapes so he started rocking his drums more and more. No wonder he names Dave Grohl, Igor Cavalera, Ome Willem and Animal as inspirational.
"I played drums and did a lot of vocals too. When I was 17, around 1998, I founded a new oldschool hardcore band named Cease Assistance with some guys I knew from shows in a local club. At that age I also bought my present drumkit: a 5 piece Pearl Session Series. After three years we became more metallic and we decided to change the name into Instil."Still under the moniker of Cease Assistance the band released their demo "If It Depends On.." in 2000.
"I also played some theatre shows with my dad. I also did some studio recordings for him and some collegues."Jaap's father, Alex Vissering, is a famous singer/song writer in the Northern part of the Netherlands.
"The trip to Iceland inspires more than you can even imagine, especially when knowing the Björk was part of the audience at one show."Despite the time consuming job as drummer in Instil Jaap Vissering plays guitar in an oldschool hardcore band and bass in a very aggressive mosh band called Puritan. Some people seem to eat, sleep, breath and live music...
"We played almost whole Europe, now it’s time to play some other continents. Japan and America are waiting. I also want to record a lot of albums and play drums until I die, or even in my coffin :)"
