Nick Thabit has studied drums with Dennis Cristallo, Gary Sykes, Andrew Cyrille, and David Lee. From his late teens he performed and toured with rock bands, always however moving towards more instrumental, improvisatory music. He was a student at the University of New Orleans with a major in Jazz Drum Performance during the tenure of Ellis Marsalis and performed at the Sandbar club and the campus mainstage. He has since played in fusion band The Shrimps in New Orleans, Texas blues band The Thing (performing mostly in France), and gigged with the eclectic Pick-up AllStars in NYC, improvisor Doug Lesser, jazz bands the Avi Pavlovich Trio and the Axis Quartet, both in NYC.
