Sam Kelly & Station House

SAM KELLY’S STATION HOUSE is a “groove” band with dancing very much in mind.  Their musical catalogue includes Johnny Guitar Watson, Keb Mo, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Gary Moore, Stevie Wonder, Little Feat, to name but a few.  Their unique sound is influenced by New Orleans second line, soul, jazz, calypso, reggae and British funk.   With three ‘lead’ singers supported by percussionist and internationally acclaimed drummer, the result is an eclectic fusion of music with its roots firmly based in the blues.

Sam’s playing career started in the early 1970’s with funk pioneers “Cymande”, working and recording successfully in the U.S.A. between 1971-1974.  His self-taught style of drumming has placed Sam in the drumseat with Cymande, Dr. John, Chaka Khan, Eddie Floyd, Robert Plant, Roger Chapman, Michelle Shocked and the late, great Gary Moore.  Sam continues to work all over the UK and in many areas of Europe, stamping his brand on all genres of music, from blues to rock, R&B, funk, soul and reggae. With a delicate sensitivity to rhythm and a great understanding of dynamics in music, he has earned the respected position of Musical Director for Soul Britannia.  Sam has also been honoured in Blues in Britain’s “Gallery of Greats” after winning ‘UK Drummer of the Year’ for five years running.

His Station House band includes PAUL JOBSON (M.D./keys/vocals), RICHARD SADLER (bass), TONY QUNTA (guitar/vocals) and JEROME MARCUS (percussion/bvs), and lead singer ROWENA POOLE.

John O'Leary

Sugarkane evolved from original John O’Leary Band which was established in  2002.  In 2009 the name was changed and since then the band has trail blazed an unique and uncompromising brand of blues based music and in the course of it’s journey, has both thrilled and challenged audiences wherever it has played. The band’s musical foundation lies wholeheartedly in the blues but there is also a hefty mix  of  jazz, funk, Latin, rock and even reggae to produce a potent individual musical brew. Noted for it’s jamming approach, today, Sugarkane is an established and popular attraction on the British blues, rock & jazz scene. The band consists of founder John O’Leary (harmonoica), long term members Jules Fothergill (guitar), Roger Inniss (bass), Jools Grudgings (keys) and Joachim Greve (drums), reinforced by the recent addition of guitarist & composed Steve Wright.  As a 6 piece band, it is a breath of fresh air in a genre dominated by guitar/bass/drum trios.
