Vinyl D. Vice is a riveting, guitar driven rock & roll band from TX. Griffin Tucker, who was on The Voice & American Idol & has won numerous awards, including the Texas Top 10 under 20 Guitarists, fronts the band with his uniquely impressive vocal style, blistering guitar riffs & stirring stage swagger. So, it was no surprise when he & bassist, Caleb Davis, were recruited by legendary rock photographer Robert Knight to join the Brotherhood of the Guitar after seeing their insane axe skills. International touring drummer, Sammi Jo Bishop, rounds out VDV with her own exceptional , powerful style of drumming.
I found my passion for music when I was 5 & I’ve followed my dream ever since. This band is the culmination of a life long search for the right people & the right sound. ARE YOU READY TO BE ROCKED?
When I met Griffin, I knew we had what it takes to write great music. Then, we found Sammi Jo & we all knew our dream of being in a real rock & roll band was finally gonna happen.

When I was asked to be VDV’s drummer, I immediately said “YES” b/c I knew that Griffin & Caleb had the same energy & drive as I do to play rock & roll. So here we are … GET READY TO BE ROCKED!
Thomas McDonough has been involved in the music industry since 1995 and Owned WROM Radio Detroit and WROM Records that was partnered with MI-5 Records/Universal Music Group. WROM Radio originated in Detroit, MI, as a passion project in 2010. McDonough’s novel approach to radio, complimenting celebrity interviews with independent music of all genres, was uncharted territory. This approach has allowed independent artists to receive the exposure and resources necessary to ensure the greatest amount of success as possible while providing established celebrities with a unique platform to express ideas.
McDonough officially started building the WROM Radio Detroit network from the ground up in late 2010. As a native of the Detroit area, McDonough has always held music hailing for the motor city in high regard. Although, a sudden and steep introduction to the music world during the late 1990s is what opened McDonough’s eyes to the vast possibilities of radio, ultimately leading him to explore and thrive in the internet radio market. It is McDonough’s well sought after discernment along with his unique insight that has helped him craft WROM into a media powerhouse. After closing the doors on WROM Radio & Records, he spent the next two years co-hosting the show, This Moment in Time. McDonough has now started a new show, called The Dcap show, here in Detroit and has worked for MI5 Recordings Universal Music Group for over 8 years. He also hosts a TV Show, called Welcome to the D, on My Jam Music TV Network. He has opened Music Player Magazine llc and welcomes the adventures ahead with major consulting in the industry and all the music reviews Music Player Magazine does.
