A BAND promising an eclectic fusion of music with its roots firmly based in blues will play Evershot Village Hall.

Sam Kelly’s Station House will come to the village, between Dorchester and Yeovil, on Saturday, March 2 at 8pm.

Sam is a professional musician with more than 40 years in the business.

His Station House band has been featuring on the UK music scene for many years. Originating from London’s Station Tavern in the early 90s, Station House was formed from the concept of an all-black blues band, mixing instinctive funk/soul rhythms with the diversity of the blues.

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.

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.

The band’s 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.

The band have just released their new album No Barricades, which Rhythm magazine described as ‘Groove so smooth it’s on rails’
