Kerry Jacobson

Kerry Jacobson was born in Wellington, New Zealand, on 19th April 1954, and began playing drums at the tender age of 9 and played professionally in his father’s jazz band when he turned 13.  He moved to Australia in 1976 to join a then unknown band called Dragon, who a year later achieved massive success on the Australian charts, and stayed with them until 1984.
During the ‘80s he also became a session drummer in Sydney recording albums with such artists as Richard Clapton, The Kevin Borich Express, Marc Hunter and many more.
He moved to Brisbane in 1990 to study jazz at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music, after which he joined Ian Moss on his 1992 tour of Germany supporting American '70s band Rare Earth.


In 2007 Dragon were inducted into the Aria Hall of Fame where the band performed for the first time in 25 years. This sparked a reunion gig in 2008 which “sold out” the Sydney Entertainment Centre.
