If you've ever wanted "more cowbell" in your life, then allow me to recommend something unique to soothe your musical soul.

A Seekonk business is preserving history and creating future musicians. It's called American Drum Company and it's a one-of-a-kind percussion school and private museum showcasing antique marching kits. If you or someone you know has a drumming background, then you'll find ADC quite interesting.

It's located at 879 Arcade Ave., right next to Old Grist Mill Tavern on Mill Pond.

Founders Karissa and Tom Evans grew up in musical families and share of love of percussion.

"My husband is a drummer and I play the fife and we met through fife and drum corps," Karissa said. "I've been playing music since high school and my husband's been drumming since around 7 or 8. His mom started a drum corps here back in 2000 and they still practice once a week here in the building."

ADC's mission is to "share a passion for drums and the history of drums by educating the public in the various percussion styles and through community service with non-profit groups" as well as through a museum. Over the past eight years, they've collected antique marching kits as a hobby which led to them opening their own business. They decided that the best way was to start a percussion school.

"We really strive to help our students and we don't turn anyone away," Karissa said. "We've had students from a 4-year-old looking to find their skill to a 20-year-old student who has been playing for years, We offer something for everyone. We do have toddler programs and we're currently in the process of putting together a parent/child program. All we need is the interest and clientele to get it started."

The custom facility offers four practice rooms, each with a live feed so you can watch your student from the waiting room, and provides a large open rehearsal area for group classes or performances.
