“some of the best – and I mean best – musicians in the UK. Or anywhere come to that”Paul Jones (The Blues Band, Manfred Mann)
Sam Kelly is a professional musician with more than 40 years in the business. His Station House band has been featuring on the UK/Worldwide music scene for many years. Originating from London’s “Station Tavern” in the early 90s, Station House has seen a wealth of quality musicians come and go over the years, all with one common goal in mind – to mix instinctive funk/soul rhythms with the diversity of the blues.
In 2020 Sam re-launched the band as a four-piece featuring Sam Kelly (drums), Richard Sadler (bass), Tony Qunta (guitar/vocals) and Rowena Poole (lead vocals) and this format continues to work at venues and festivals all over Europe/UK.
Sam Kelly's Station House is a blues-based “groove” band with a unique sound that is influenced by New Orleans second line, soul, jazz and British funk. They are a vibrant, energetic band who really know how to entertain a crowd... “So funky you can almost smell ’em” said one excited festival reveller !!
Fans across the world have waited more than 10 years for a new Sam Kelly's Station House album. No Barricades has now been released, crammed with original arrangements and funky blues tracks. This album is a collaboration of work also involving previous band members, Paul Jobson (MD/keys/vocals) and Jerome Marcus (percussion/bvs). Both of these wonderful musicians and great friends of Sam Kelly’s Station House, have moved on with different projects and we wish them all the best in their new endeavours.
