Tom Eustace

Tom is a hard-hitting rock drummer born in the Midlands, UK. Having tinkered with drums at a young age Tom didn’t actually get his first real drum kit till age 16. From there it became Tom’s mission to join a band and hit the stage!

Tom hails from a musical family, playing regularly for nearly 15 years, in a family cover band (No Limit) with his superbly talented Father and Brother. Playing songs that spanned generations and genres gave Tom an eclectic musical taste, something that has laid out the foundation for Tom’s approach to drumming; keep it simple, keep it solid, make them dance!

Since moving to London at age 22, Tom played in several originals bands to varying degrees of success before then being recruited into two bands in 2018.

The first band to award Tom tub-thumpin’ duties was ‘Jay Vee and the Cardinal Sins’. Formed in 2012 the already established London-based power trio deliver an eclectic sound comprising garage-punk, rockabilly and rock n’ roll influences. Screaming, jerking and sweating their way through high-octane live sets, Jay Vee and the Cardinal Sins never fail to entertain!

The second band was ‘Red Light Acid Test’. This London-based 4-piece Alternative rock band was formed in 2018 with Tom joining the fray as an integral member of the band from the start.

They have a diverse, if heavy, sound influenced by the mesmerising riffs of stoner rock, untamed aggression of grunge, minimalism of post punk all swirled together with some psychedelic blues.

In between chaotic, dirty noise and intricate, delicate melody Tom is able to effortlessly contribute with solid yet heavy drum parts as well as backing vocals.
