Jerry Tee, known by his stage was name born on April 27th in Australia, he began playing drums and percussion at the age of 8 years old. At such an early age, Jerry’s love and passion for music came to surface, he would lock himself in the households garage every single day for hours on end with headphones, a cassette player, tins of paint that he used as drums, and screwdrivers that he used as drum sticks; while playing along to many recordings.

At age 13 Jerry joined his fathers reputable and well-known local band Akropolis Live as the drummer performing in nightclubs, festivals and private events until the early hours of the morning.

Throughout Jerry’s early beginnings into the musical world, Jerry studied drums at John Reynolds School Of Music for several years where he learnt to read and write “drum music”.

By age 15 Jerry was well known in the community as the youngest hardest working musician at the time, he was selected to perform with one of Greece’s high ranking female vocalists – Glykeria; in front of an audience of thousands at a music festival.

17 years old, and Jerry was still performing with his father’s band Akropolis Live, and also alongside some of Australia and Greece’s iconic legend artists from within the music industry.

Fast forward; Jerry created a genius concept of a monthly Greek Night in his hometown, he named the event Magazi Baraki (meaning Bar), he would hand-select DJ’s, vocalists and live instruments from across Australia to accompany him on stage while he played percussion. This monthly event was a smashing success, crowds of people would attend from all over Australia to visit and experience Jerry’s vision of an outdoor summer nights Ibiza inspired venue dancing under the stars with mixed genres of music – which was never done before in Australia!

Jerry has regularly appeared and interviewed on well-known television and radio stations, and also performing on various studio recordings that were sold worldwide.

Jerry’s passion and vision grew even stronger, setting the benchmark creating a revolution with his vibrant, energetic performances, a sight to sound audiovisual LED instrument display, alongside his iconic custom made tiger print instruments, and let’s not forget his gold bongos!

Never limiting himself to one genre of music, Jerry’s playing style and ability are incredibly flexible with ease; he performs Deep House, Electro, RnB, Latin, Arabic, and his roots – Greek.

He has extensively performed across Australia’s exclusive venues and music festivals as the main “Headliner Act”, working alongside premium entertainment agencies, artists, and even musicians WORLDWIDE!
