Velvet Hammer Productions began revamping and redesigning this music site for Mindy Simmons, a talented local music artist. It actually included two domains, because Mindy does an inspiring Peggy Lee Tribute as well, but the sites are interconnected, just having a different front page. Mindy's new site includes CD's for sale, music information, rss feeds, lots of photos and video, plus contact information for Mindy. It's up and running!


Velvet Hammer Productions was just a dream in the 1990's, when owner Beth Hammer began designing a website for her antique sales company. Other websites quickly followed, and Beth's background in commercial art and advertising soon led to her creating CD covers and inserts for musicians around the area.Eventually Beth's experience in television brought her interests to video production, and led her to purchase a number of quality video cameras, along with editing equipment.
