***SPAM*** Sam Kelly's Station House - Bullfrog Blues Club - Thursday 2nd Feb

I'm pleased to say SAM KELLY'S STATION HOUSE  are back at The Bullfrog 
Blues Club at The Dockyard Club), Onslow Rd, Southsea, PO5 2NH. on THURSDAY
FEBRUARY 2nd  - I'm coming over from Ireland for this one! 

Originating from London's Station Tavern in the early nineties, the  unique
sound of SAM KELLY'S STATION HOUSE  is influenced by New Orleans second
line, soul, jazz, calypso, reggae and British funk.   With three `lead'
singers supported by a percussionist and an internationally acclaimed
drummer, the result is an eclectic fusion of music with its roots firmly
based in the blues. And what a pedigree these guys all have! 

During 2016, SAM KELLY'S STATION HOUSE  performed at The Top Secret Blues
Festival in Scarborough, The Grainstore Brewery Beer Festival and Blues on
The Farm Festival in Chichester.  They formed the House Band for Paul
Jones' Charity Events at Cranleigh Arts Centre on two occasions, 
performing in 2012 with Paul Jones, Imelda May, Robben Ford, Chris Barber,
Andy Fairweather Low, Mike Sanchez and in 2015 with Paul Jones, Bernie
Marsden, Laurence Jones, Reuben Richards,  Noel McCalla, Katie Bradley &
Dudley Ross, Kyla Brox & Danny Blomeley, Debbie Giles and Charlie Wood.

SAM KELLY has been the  drummer for Dr. John, Chaka Khan, Eddie Floyd,
Robert Plant, Roger Chapman, Michelle Shocked and the late, great Gary
Moore.  Sam played drums on Gary's last R&B album "Bad For You Baby". Sam
