Bill Knipfer

Bill picked up his drumsticks when he was 14 years old, and has been playing rock steady ever since. He played in club bands in Milwaukee and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles, where he graduated from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood in 1982. Bill played in LA jazz workshops and studied privately from Gregg Bissionette before moving to Nashville, where he honed his craft for over 20 years playing on recordings and in various country and jazz bands. Since moving back to Door County, Bill has been playing drums for the Northern Sky Theater, and with the Swingin’ Door Big Band. Now Bill brings his breadth of experience to bear, driving Steel Crossing to new rhythmic heights!
