Tomáš Hobzek (born 1980) began drumming sessions at Pilsen Conservatory. During his studies he became part of the J.K. Tyl’s theater orchestra, where he gained experience through playing classical music, which he did also through playing with various student bands. In 1999 he attended Prague Jazz Workshops and studied under Pavel Zbořil, Martin Šulc and Robert Balcar. Tomáš was also at the birth of “Adam’s Apple Quintet”, and started to give guest performances in Milan Svoboda’s bands.
Together with saxophonist Helena Marková, Tomáš established a band named Work in Progress, where he demonstrated his composing abilities.
