Norwich drummer John Clarke has held the drum seat with Taverham Band for over 20 years and has performed with them for HM The Queen and Prince Charles at Sandringham and Windsor Castle. He has toured Europe and appeared at the Brecon Jazz festival with The He Hews. John is also the drummer behind "Rob and Ecky." He appeared with The He Hews on Channel 4's Come Dine With Me. John was a proud contributor to Terry Wogan's "Wake up to Wogan" Radio show and recently the Danny Baker Show.
I like Axis pedals because of the clean design, dynamic speed, power, easy maintenance, self lubricating and very important, quiet. The pedals are easy to adjust positions and the micro tuning makes for easy tension adjustments while sitting on the throne. The materials used are premium, lightweight and easy to transport especially when traveling by air, and weight is a factor.
He has been driver and road Manager for numerous cycle tours including Lejog, France, Italy, Germany, Luxembourg and Spain. He also had the honor of playing the "Saving Private Ryan" drum solo at the Menim Gate in Belgium.
