WEXFORD percussion group Extreme Rhythm are on a high after performing with the international pop star Kelly Clarkson at Wembley Arena in London at the weekend.

The high-impact drummers first met the former American Idol winner when they were invited to appear with her on television during the X-Factor live shows in October 2011.

She was so impressed with the Wexford percussionists on that occasion that she tweeted a compliment after the show..

Earlier this month, when Ms. Clarkson played to a packed 02 arena in Dublin, Extreme Rhythm were on stage with her again.

And last Saturday night, they travelled to London at her invitation, to bang their drums in Wembley Arena.

'It's been a fantastic experience. She is so great to work with,' said delighted director Nicky Bailey.
