I am intending on having music to submit for Guitar Center's "Connections." Therefore, my primary goal is to collaborate with those who would like to create some original works for that purpose. My secondary goal is to perform live, either with a working ensemble or to put together a group of musicians for the same purpose. Of course, it's best to get paid for our performance. Depending on the circumstances, I can play at various venues for certain occasions. In reality, we all have to schedule the priorities in life, work, family, music, and those ever-occurring contingencies. I am able to maintain my commitments responsibly and enthusiastically. If you're concerned about copyrighting and publishing your ideas that is not a problem for me. See my personal website: ://.vibrarhythmothy/ for more information about me. You can also contact me using Bandmix's e-mail.

Again, see my personal website, above, for more details about me. I have included several original tunes for you to audition my musical expression. I cycle through my originals occasionally so you won't think that I am limited to one particular genre. Note that I prefer to be considered as a drummer. I hope to hear from you ... :)

Vibrarhythmothy.org is my personal website.
Vibrarhythmothy Limited is a multimedia production studio especially constructed and organized especially for educational pursuits.
Originally designed for a classic car show - was adapted for other commercial purposes. I was even going to enter it into the Guitar Center (TM) songwriter's competition. I don't want to give up any rights to this song.
Selected excerpts of performances at various venues by The Gear. All video and audio edited by Vibrarhythmothy Ltd. DVDs copied and distributed through 9/27/13
By 4/6/13 I will post on You Tube some excerpts of my performances - on drums and keyboards.
The Gear is a 60's tribute band performing from 1:00 to 4:00 pm on Black Friday
The performance is for a retirement party. Video will be recorded.
Update/Status 11/22/12: The video turned out fine, but the audio is quite distorted. Before 1/13 some video segments will be posted onto YouTube. The account will be "vibrarhythmothy."

Performance is on acoustic drum kit.
May do a brief candid interview.
Once the encoding and "editing" is done (this week), I'll post this on YouTube for your viewing.
