‘Strictly’ drummer Jeff Lardner joins Sakae roster

SVM has announced that Jeff Lardner, one of the UK’s top session drummers, has joined its list of Sakae drum artists.

Jeff Lardner has an impressive list of credits which includes working with Van Morrison, Kylie Minogue, Mark Knopfler, Georgie Fame, The London Concert Orchestra and the BBC Big Band. He is also a regular fixture on dozens of live TV shows in the U.K., including the BBC smash ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. In addition to prior notable West End residencies with ‘Guys & Dolls’ and ‘Dancing In The Street’, Lardner is currently booked for a huge run of the Fred Astaire-celebrating show ‘Remembering Fred’ throughout April and May 2017.

Lardner commented on his appointment: ‘It’s an absolute privilege to play and endorse Sakae drums. I really love their vintage sound and incredible build quality. The Trilogy drums cover such a variety of musical situations and as a gigging musician, one couldn’t ask for more. I’m very proud to be associated with the legendary Sakae drum company.’

Jeff Lardner plays a Sakae Trilogy 3-ply Maple/Poplar/Maple Mint Oyster Pearl finish kit.
