Thomas Crescitelli

Thomas is a 13-year-old accomplished drummer who plays with maturity and poise. He has been attending drum lessons since the age of 7 where he continues to develop his theory, technique, and groove. He recently completed his Grade 5 Australian Music Examination Board (AMEB) Rock School Drum Exam

In 2021, Thomas entered the Drum-Off Global Annual International drum competition and submitted a 4-minute drum solo video, winning the Australian junior category. This propelled him onto the international stage where he was assessed against eleven other countries by a panel of world-renowned drummers including Anika Niles, Chris Coleman, Thomas Haake and Carter McLean. This opportunity then led to Thomas becoming an ambassador for Red Cymbals, a privately owned Australian cymbal company.

He has performed and recorded with accomplished musicians and for a period of 12 months, played in a cover band with adults. He is currently seeking younger musicians to create original music with and form a band. Thomas enjoys playing funk, fusion, indie, blues, soul, classic rock and progressive rock.

Thomas can be seen “busking” in the Adelaide Rundle Mall from time to time and many examples of him playing and performing can be found on his Instagram page 

Thomas will be performing at Asia Street Food By the Sea on
Sunday the 18th of February from 2 pm!
