Sam Kelly is a professional musician with more than 40 years in the business. 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.
Fast forward to 2009 when Sam re-launched the band boasting a new line up of 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.
