Sam Kelly’s Station House “No Barricades”

by Sam Kelly

We were thrilled to receive such great feedback from all the crew at Ipswich Community Radio, 105.7 fm:

Ozzie (ex Caroline) “Fantastic CD – all the tunes are on rotation on my show!”

Mrs J-D, The Blues Train Experience “I really can’t get enough of No Barricades”

Webby, Mouthpiece Show “Sam is head and shoulders above the usual band leader, and his band is full of top draw musos.  Can you pick one tune out? No, hence every show since the tracks arrived, I play two at a time!!

A big “thumbs up”, and a “go out and buy”, is the instruction from the leading DJ’s at ICR-FM.

Thank you for all your support, Sam Kelly’s 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. The band’s unique sound is influenced by New Orleans second line, soul, jazz, calypso, reggae and British funk.
