Tommy has been playing drums since he was 13 years old. From early on, he taught himself
the music of some of the greatest bands and at age 16, began taking lessons from prominent
teachers such as Mike Abbot and Jim Chapin, Harry’s father.
In the early 80’s, he was playing in big bands, classical orchestras and performing with local
rock acts. After High School, he succeeded in finding session and jingle work in Manhattan
and has since, worked sessions on both the east and west coasts.
Tom has toured nationally several times with many original bands. In the late 90’s, he
opened Blokhed Studios in Deer Park, NY and now makes his living as an engineer,
producer and session drummer.
