Door time: 20:00



Sam Kelly's Station House 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, performing with artists such as Chaka Khan and Taka Boom.  When the venue closed down, Sam Kelly took over the running of the band and, together with some changes in personnel, Sam Kelly's Station House evolved.

Fast forward to 2009 when Sam re-launched the Band boasting a new line up of Sam Kelly (drums/bvs), Paul Jobson (M.D./keys/vocals), Richard Sadler (bass), Tony Qunta (guitar/vocals) and Jerome Marcus (percussion/bvs).  This format continues to work at venues and festivals all over the U.K. and in Europe.
