Brian Viglione, along with Amanda Palmer, make up the band The Dresden Dolls. Viglione's main role in the band is that of drummer, although he does bass, guitar, vocals and some other things occasionally, while Palmer plays the piano and leads vocals. The music for the duo is considered both highly dynamic and innovative, combining rock influences with their unique take on cabaret music. Brian is often seen in mime(pictured) or classical styles of dress on stage or in pictures from the band's site, adding to the neo-cabaret sound and image of the band. At the end of summer 2008 the band announced an indefinite break from performing and recording.
Brian also gives drum lessons and collaborates with many other Boston musicians including the Gill Aharon Trio, Neovoxer Ensemble, Humanwine and Reverend Glasseye. More recently, he performed drums for the new Nine Inch Nails album Ghosts I-IV.
Brian is currently a member of The World/Inferno Friendship Society.
