Sam Kelly's Station House - Bushy's Big Wheel Blues Festival

Sam Kelly's Station House

Sam Kelly's Station House: The band started out as the ‘house band' playing at Bob's Goodtime Blues at the Station Tavern, London NW10 in the mid 90's. A regularly Sunday lunchtime spot turned into a long-term residency at the venue and the ‘house band' simply became ‘Station House'. The band was billed as a ‘Blues-Soul fusion featuring the classy vocals of Root Jackson and 1999's Blues Drummer of the Year, Sam Kelly.


Station House has played at the Burnley Blues Festival, South Hill Park Blues Festival, Theatre Royal, Stratford and several venues on the London pub ‘blues scene' Predominately the band have played at private venues, in demand because of their mix of danceable music and vibrant personalities.

All the band members come from a non-blues background so the unique blues sound that they have created is a fusion of their influences such as British funk, soul, jazz, calypso and reggae. The result is a mix of music which is far different to the norm, but still with its roots based firmly in the blues.
