Max Trefler

Max began drumming at an early age after his parents bought a drum set from a customer at their record shop. After teaching himself to set up the drums, Max began a serious and creative study of the drum set, learning from Don Pham, Paul Delong and Jim Blackley.

After playing in multiple bands during high school and studying at Humber College, Max joined the band Whosarmy. Whosarmy went on to compete and win on CBC’s “Cover Me Canada”. After the show, Whosarmy recorded a record with producer Gavin Brown and toured Canada. At the same time, Max joined the band The Mohrs fronted by Jackie Mohr and guitarist Marc Girardin. The Mohrs debut record, produced by Hawksley Workman, will be released in spring 2014. The band recently signed with Vancouver based record label 604 Records and The Agency Group. Max also plays with LYON, Molly Thomason, and various other studio and live projects. Max is also an educator and teaches private drum lessons in the Toronto area.
