Sam Kelly’s Station House – Craftfest
SAM KELLY’S STATION HOUSE “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 nineties, 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 4-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 !!
