When did you decide you wanted to open a drum shop?

I started in nov 2019 after being frustrated with the lack of knowledge music shops in my area. With a background in visual merchandising working with brands like Red Bull, Bayer, Honeywell and many others; and previously being a drum tech, everything fell into place.

Soon after opening we were in a full blown pandemic. I was donating plasma for research and using the money to buy drums. We moved to a larger location in 2021.

Is there any significance to Pocket Percussion's location and building?

The building we are in is called the erinfort block – it was built in the late 1800’s. One of the oldest buildings in our town.
We have plenty of parking and our walks are thick stone. Perfect for loud ass drums.

What's a favorite story from running your shop?

I sold a drum to Eric Singer from kiss. He invited me to a Kiss show where I delivered the drum to him and got to watch the show.
