I am deeply saddened by the passing of my dear friend and mentor Mr. Vic Firth. There will never be another like him. He will be sorely missed.

We Will Miss You Joe!

JoeDom “Joe Hibbs was and incredible positive force in the drumming community! He worked with the best drummers in the history of our instrument! He thought ahead of us on what we needed and always called to check in! I met Joe in the late 1970’s. We worked together since then. He was like a brother to me. He is missed but will never be forgotten! His heart is a part of all of us! Hibber is setting up the drums for us all to meet again! Rest well brother!”

AN EXCERPT FROM DOM’s BEST SELLING BOOK The Cycle of Self Empowerment…

My mother once told me,

“Dom, you’re really living on the edge.”
I replied, “Mom, when I want to see the edge, I look behind me!”

That’s the way I want to live life, always reaching, never afraid of taking an occasional tumble if it’s a by-product of my ambition. It’s like those stepping stones again. You’ve got to be willing to take a leap to the next stone, and be ready to get wet when you miss. It’s all part of our adventure in learning.

Some people settle for contentment. Their idea of a perfect life is one void of personal strife.

We’ve all heard about how water always takes the path of least resis- tance. Well, that’s the way some people allow themselves to live. Always opting for the easy path, acting more like rainwater than people – head- ing down all the time, down the drain, settling for the low spot, where they seep into the ground, never to be heard from again.

I want more out of life. I want to rise above the simple biology of my existence.

From Andrew Hewitt of Can-Do-Musos: “Was on this day back in March 2013, 4 of us.

The temp was cold outside (31f -2c), snow was about, but the ideas were running hot.

Empowerment for Disabled Musicians Organization CandoMusos to Present at H.O.T. Zone During Winter NAMM 2016


CandoMusos announces that they will again be presenting their global vision for all musicians with disabilities on Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 3 pm PST, in the H.O.T. Zone at the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Conference in Anaheim, California at the Anaheim Convention Center.

CandoMusos was established to become the global voice for challenged musicians throughout the world. The aim is to promote and assist all musicians with any kind of disability by helping them bridge the gap between talent and limitations, while providing support and access to resources. The name comes from the idea that having a “can-do attitude” is the first step toward success. “Muso” is a term used in England and Australia to describe musicians with a passion and dedication to their music. The two words joined together form a unique name, which defines both the organization’s vision and mission.

CandoMusos was started by drummers Dom Famularo, David Segal, Andrew Hewitt, and Mike Mignogna in March 2013 at Dom’s Wizdom Drumshed in Long Island, New York. Drummer Joe Hardy from California was recently added as a new associate board member. Over 200 members of the CandoMusos family from twenty-four countries currently use the group’s free website, fostering worldwide communication among disabled musicians.
