Sam Kelly's Station House Recorded at the 21st Black Horse Festival on 22nd May 2009 at The Black Horse Inn, Hastings Road, Telham, East Sussex,

The band CDs include "Sunday Best" (2006) "Live at Crawley" (2007).

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.
