Percussive Arts Society ~ Rhythm! Discovery Center & Museum

 

Was thrilled beyond words when I was asked by Percussive Arts Society's Executive Director; Jeff Hartsough in 2015 if I would put my Lego Drum Set into their Rhythm! Discovery Center & Museum's permanent collection.  Since I perform and record with my Lego Drum Set on a regular basis, I offered to build one for them.  I am so honored that PAS the international percussion organization, wanted to have my work in their collection.  Means the absolute world to me that something I created is in the company of such historic and legendary artifacts that represent the World of Percussion and it's evolution.  Was elated to set up my Lego Drum Set in the "Discovery" area so that visitors from all over the world could not only enjoy viewing my Lego Drum Set, but are able to get up close and personal by playing and experiencing them.  Was blown away when I was told by Jeff that my Lego Drum Set is the flagship display of their "and the Kitchen Sink" exhibit.  I thank Dominick Gagliano, Amedia Cymbals US for allowing me to secure a set of cymbals to complete the Lego Drum Set.  I am an endorsee of Amedia Cymbals and could not imagine the Lego Drum Set in the Percussive Arts Society's Rhythm! Discovery Center & Museum without them.

 

The following is a Promo Video that I created for Percussive Arts Society so that they could use it for the exhibits kiosk so visitors can see how the Lego Drum Set was built and how it sounds if they choose not to sit and play on it.
