Internationally renowned, legendary drummer, SAM KELLY, has been a professional musician for more than 40 years.  His playing career started in the early 1970’s with “Cymande”, an 8-piece ‘rare groove’ band that achieved recognition with a series of high-profile tours in The States between 1971-1974.  Cymande reunited in 2014 and continue to perform around the World.

Sam stamps his “self-taught” style of drumming on all genres of music, from blues to rock, R&B, funk, soul, jazz and reggae. With a delicate sensitivity to rhythm and a great understanding of dynamics in music, he has been honoured in Blues in Britain’s “Gallery of Greats” after winning ‘UK Drummer of the Year’ for five years running.

He has held the drum-seat for many notable musicians including Dr. John, Chaka Khan, Eddie Floyd, Percy Sledge, Ben E. King, Robert Plant, Roger Chapman, Gordon Haskell, Billy Ocean and the late, great Gary Moore.  Sam also runs his own band – the funky 4-piece “Station House”.

Combined with his years of experience and his reputation on the UK music scene, Sam Kelly is a highly accessible, sought-after drummer.
