Zachary Theodorou



Zach first performed with Jackson D in October 2014 and quickly became his permanent percussionist. His fantastic work and dedication to the JD sound is evident on Jackson D's debut album 'Face'.


Zachary has played drums since the age of 7 but found his love for percussion after joining his local Hexagon Music Percussion Ensemble at the age of 11.


At School, Zach played in the soul band, concert band and the jazz band. This helped him to get a feel of the eclectic mix of styles. Zach declares his favourite was the jazz band and this comes through when composing the percussion for Jackson D.
