8.17.2015 Michael Dempsey Bass

Velvet Hammer Productions began working on a challenging new website for Michael Dempsey, which would enable him to bring his recording talents to a great number of people. The site includes instructions for submitting music, photographs of all of his basses as well as recordings of the different basses so users may choose if they wish. In addition, there are songs of national recording artists with whom Michael Dempsey has recorded, so that interested parties can listen to how his bass was incorporated into these songs. It was completed in September 2015, and you can view it and listen here.

Velvet Hammer Productions worked on this website over a period of time for innovator Joe Cyr. It contains many references, definitions of terms, for the military comlex. Joe has had this defining site for over 15 years, but needed it redesigned.

7.12.2014 Mindy Simmons, Musician

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!


6.29.2014 Sarasota Blues Jam

Velvet Hammer Productions has been busy expanding and maintaining this site as the Sunday Blues Jam moved to The Blue Rooster in late June. The site was designed to inform musicians on normal jam procedures, and of the jams available around town as well. Lots of videos and photos from the Blue Rooster Jam!


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.

10.18.2013 White Elephant Pub

A site for a restaurant with unique and varied menus, plus a clever logo presented a fun challenge for Velvet Hammer Productions. And the most recent addition of live beach and bayou cameras was an adventure in web design. The cameras were already on a fixed IP address, and it proved difficult at best to make them available to the public. Finally, it was decided to use "View" as a log in name, and allow visitors to see the full page real time videos. They are great! Site is available to view at White Elephant Pub.
