Sam Kelly’s Station House

Sam Kelly has been in the business more than 40 years . His “Station House” band has been featuring on the U.K. music scene for many years.

Originating from London’s “Station Tavern” in the early nineties, Station House was formed from the concept of an all-black blues band, mixing instinctive funk/soul rhythms with the diversity of the blues. Founder members Sam Kelly, TJ Johnson and Dave Clark were joined by lead singer, Root Jackson. The Band held a monthly residency at the Station Tavern for more than a decade.

The Line-Up:  Sam Kelly (drums/bvs), Paul Jobson (MD/keys/vocals), Richard Sadler (bass), Tony Qunta (guitar/vocals) and Jerome Marcus (percussion/bvs). In 2016, a third “lead singer”, Rowena Poole, joined Sam Kelly’s Station House and this format continues to work at venues and festivals all over Europe/UK.

Sam Kelly’s Station House is a “groove” band with dancing very much in mind. Their musical catalogue includes Johnny Guitar Watson, Keb Mo, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Gary Moore, Stevie Wonder, Little Feat, to name but a few. The band’s unique sound is influenced by New Orleans second line, soul, jazz, calypso, reggae and British funk. With three ‘lead’ singers supported by percussionist and internationally acclaimed drummer, the result is an eclectic fusion of music with its roots firmly based in the blues.
