A few very exciting things to share about my Lego Drum Set:
* My Lego Drum kit will be featured in Modern Drummer Magazine "Kit Of The Month" Column in an upcoming issue. Please check back here and I will be posting the issue date.
* Percussive Arts Society - The global connection for all things drum and percussion were very impressed to learn about my Lego Drum Kit and were very kind in their words to me with respect to its sound and uniqueness and asked if I would be interested in donating it to their Rhythm! Discovery Museum. Honored doesn't even come close to how I feel. To know that something that I created has been recognized by my peers and will be in the company of the greatest growing collection of percussion instruments from all over the world is truly incredible. Really looking forward to building a set for them and hand delivering it to them very soon... Check back for upcoming set of photos and video of it!!!
Wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported my gift of making a Lego Drum Kit to donate to the Percussive Arts Societies "Rhythm! Discovery Museum" http://rhythmdiscoverycenter.org/ via my Rockethub campaign. The campaign is now closed. Once I receive the underwriting from them I will be ordering the materials to start my building project. Looking forward to making the arrangements to hand deliver it to the Museum by the beginning of the new year.
Thank you again for your interest and your continued support! - Brian

Started working with two new projects: Maria Zemantauski's GX3+. Feel very fortunate to join them as the "+" when their performance program requires a bit different texture and color. Most recently I performed with them for Mona Golub's Music Haven Concert Series opening for an incredibly unique group Novalima Afro-Peruvian Techno Group mixing traditional Afro-Peruvian Music with Electronica. Also, Very excited to be asked to become involved in the quartet version of Golfstrom. A wonderfully energetic quartet featuring music from Russia, Ukraine, France, and Germany. Features Woodwinds, Upright Bass, Accordion, Vocals and Percussion. Please check my calender for my performance schedule and listings of our upcoming shows.
