Tamás Balogh is in his early twenties yet he has been playing music solidly for close on a decade, and at present he is a student of Károly Binder at the Liszt Academy Jazz Department. His first instrument at the music school of Kistarcsa was the drums, although it quickly dawned on him that the piano and composition were far more to his taste.

In autumn 2013 he won the prestigious Creative Art award established by György Vukán. Tamás Hidász is drummer in the Balogh Tamás Quartet who won the best drummer prize at the Tirgu Mures Jazz Festival in 2013; Hódmezővásárhely-born Tibor Fonay on bass was presented with a Junior Prima Prize in 2014.
