Domenic Schüpbach



Born January 15th 1985 in Berne, Switzerland, he spent most of his childhood behind the drums. As a well-behaved boy, he only left his drumset to give his neighbours a short break. Together with his older brother he tested their little sister’s goalkeeper skills by playing soccer and other sports.

From the very first day, he took lessons with Stefan Kurzo (i.a. drummer at Beijing Symphony Orchestra). Just months later, he competed in  several drumset-Championships in Switzerland successfully.

Today he is the drummer of the Post-Indie Band „YOKKO“. Founded in 2010 and named as Rock Star Magazine's "Band To Watch" in 2011, YOKKO signed an US-Label deal just months later. Since then, YOKKO has performed with international artists including Mike + The Mechanics, The Straits and The Coronas and many more.

Their singles "Chase" and „Calling all Gods“ brought the band numerous nominations such as "Band of the Month" and "Most Air-Played Song", as well as daily rotation on radio stations throughout Switzerland.
