Rhythm Architecture fuses world-class virtuosity, state-of-the-art electronic percussion and DJ skills into a unique versatile music act. Success comes from diligent research and testing of melodies people enjoy, world-class technical skills and hundreds of percussion instruments from which to choose.
The result is a signature act - tasteful, modern and unique - with the skill and visual excitement of live music.
Rhythm Architecture has music people of any age want to hear more of, seen at museum and hotel grand openings, juried fine art fairs, golf and country clubs, corporate and municipal events, fine dining restaurants, fundraisers, VIP areas and private events. This act travels. Performances occur all over Florida, metropolitan Detroit in Michigan and Western Pennsylvania, mostly in the Pittsburgh area, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.
Most solo acts or duos use one instrument and a vocalist. Their repertoire is limited and after a while, they all sound the same. People on vacation grow tired of hearing the same songs over and over when they sample the town at night. Why not offer your patrons something they will remember?
Rhythm Architecture brings a full musical menu to your event having trumpet, trombone, saxophone, guitar, piano, cello, violin and flute leads not to mention hundreds of percussion instruments. The atmosphere and variety this act creates is a far more interesting and pleasant experience for patrons who soon realize Rhythm Architecture's world-class technical skill, which attracts attention (and reflects very favorably upon management).
This act has the advantage of performing background dinner music, then switching in seconds to pack the dance floor - especially useful at weddings, when a hotel audience changes as the more active evening crowd arrives, or after a speaker has concluded at a fundraiser, golf tournament or VIP tent. Rhythm Architecture adjusts to a changing audience selecting from 1500 tunes. Sets are often custom designed for clients.
Rhythm Architecture dinner music comes from places traveled around the world, melodies people have never heard before, then want to know the names of. No one has my repertoire. It is unique to sampling music in Europe and Brazil that comes with subtle tempos a noticeable jazz influence. Instead of hearing old songs repeated over and over, they hear music that becomes their new favorites.
Dance set music is manipulated for tempo and length keeping the event or evening moving and the dancers active.
Sometimes retro-remixes combine Motown or Disco with popular radio hits from current EDM. Medleys are used having the main phrases of different songs from one time period or genre.
Rhythm Architecture does not shy away from ballads.
It believes in slow dancing, especially melodic charts from clubs on the beaches of Brazil.
The background music repertoire is perfect for listening by candlelight, fireside, waterfall, or barefoot under the stars.
More than one client has stated it sounds like "happy music."
Warm thoughtful contemporary Ibiza Island motifs from the Spanish Mediterranean mix with breezy NuJazz ballads from Brazil's windswept coastal beaches to create soft waves of sound, syncopated by R&B grooves dusted with a touch of soul slow dancers sucucumb to. People love these sets.
People dance by listening to the beat of the drums.
Rhythm Architecture is like having a large drumline at your event. My 17 years drum corps marching experience adds electricity to any wedding, nightclub or dance club using drumline arranging techniques and advanced technical prowess to create unique textures and accent patterns. Tenor drum pitches are used to create interesting counter melodies or support the existing phrase. Unlike most DJs, the audience sees notes happen LIVE! Competition speed and drumline syncopatios always impress.
Nightclubs throb to the pulse of Electronic Dance Music (EDM), House, Techno and Trance, then wind through all the Motown, 70s 80s and 90s favorites including the modern Latin genre.
Nothing captures attention like a tension filled drum solo!

Rhythm Architecture is unique and versatile.
Municipal festivals request upbeat and forceful music for their stages, having strong accents and counter-rhythms.
Big Band charts and the forceful trumpets of Latin Jazz needs strong percussion and rhythms that rock the house. Add Tropical Salsa, Merengue and Bachata to the mix and stir with easy listening, radio Top40, alternative and Urban Pop to create sets unique to your event.
Rhythm Architecture has a more diverse repertoire than acts using one instrument and a vocalist because it has a full ensemble sound using trumpet, trombone, saxophone, flute, oboe, violin, cello - any number of vocal combinations - and hundreds of specially chosen percussion voices.

The speeds and visuals in this video are those used in world class solo compeiton drumming. Dancers are mesmerized because they see unusual speed and power - not someone banging away at simple 8th notes - and all the exciting accent patterns and textures the competition drumline genre creates.
Solo are used to compliment to the music, one of those rare skills that makes an event special and memorable.
Rhythm Architecture sometimes teams with musicians and other DJ's.
The act can perform dinner music, then join a small combo or band.
Musicians must have the ability to improvise and know when to stay in the background and when to solo, especially when trading off the lead between their soloing and the drum rhythms moving the dance floor. Since musicians usually work from tapes or CDs to learn new charts, It helps if everyone knows a wide selection of music genre.
Weddings, Nightclubs and Municipal Festivals losing for a unique and original performance have used this solution for their audience.
