Later with Jools Holland-inspired show The Room will return on Saturday, February 3 after the success of its 10th anniversary come-back in April this year.

Already five bands are lined up and will be covering a selection of music genres, all performed on multiple stages as per Jools’ BBC show.

Appearing this time around are East Anglian rockers Walkway who are carving out a name for themselves having supporting Status Quo and The Darkness, as well as becoming firm favourites on the festival front.

Gorleston-based band The Hot Stove League will bring an acoustic feel with their set covering folk through pop, country, reggae, blues and ska.

Norwich band Hot Raisin are Tory Cobb and Mary Podd, they have been delighting the discerning city music scene for some time as well as having their last EP as BBC Radio Norfolk record of the week with their quirky self-penned tracks.

They will be joined on the night by their band.

And bringing a touch of theatrics to evening will be The Bloodshake Chorus who will be performing with their new line up for the first time.

Bloodshake take classic 50s and 6’s tracks and give them their own twist.

Finally performing through the three sets and providing a finale to the three and a half hour musical treat will be The H Gang, the Room’s resident band featuring some of the area’s finest musicians and fronted this time by local legend Roger “Buster” James.

Promoter Howard Marshall recently attended the Later with Jools 25th Anniversary show at the Royal Albert Hall. He said: “I was blown away by the event, and I draw the same feeling from the Room night albeit on a more local level. Quality live music on any level is worth seeing and it’s the people who come to see this event whenever it is on who truly make the night happen.”

The Room is held at the Ocean Room in Gorleston, doors open at 8.30pm with the show starting at 9.15pm, tickets are £8 in advance and £10 on the door.
