Artist biography Mike Kaabe
Michael Kaabe was drummer with Emmure until October 2011. He joined the group in 2009, replacing Joe Lionetti. Mike Kaabe formerly played with Warfix, Hulk Blood, and Endwell.
Mike Kaabe first started playing the drums at the age of 10 after Tre Cool smashing the kit like a madman on tv. From that definitive moment Mike has been playing Zildjian, and has finally actualized his dream in becoming part of Zildjian's artist roster.
Mike also does session work around the NYC area when not touring, and has a solid understanding of funk, R&B, jazz, hip-hop, drum and bass, progressive, and various world styles to keep his musical palette as diverse as his cymbal selection.
Factoid: Mik is also the step-brother of Emmure guitarist Jesse Ketive.
