Cooking up a hot gumbo of New Orleans R&B, Tim Penn and The Second Line will take you on a magical journey through the music of the American Deep South.

No simple “covers” band, The Second Line breathe new life into the music, and mix it up further by incorporating a pinch of Ray Charles, a growl of Tom Waits and Tim’s own songs. This recipe has led to a string of sold out shows in London at top club venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Bar, Pizza Express and The Green Note.

Local Teddington musician, Tim Penn is one of the most in demand pianists on the London roots, songwriter & blues scenes. As well as leading his own band, he also plays piano with The Cadillac Kings (“The U.K.’s finest purveyors of blues & swing” Blues in Britain Magazine), who played a sold-out show at The Landmark in July 2023. The line-up consists of Nigel Appleton on drums (The Guvnor’s, Regenesis), Francis Booth on bass, Ayo Odia from Nigeria (Fela Kuti, Osibisa) adding a touch of afro-beat sax into the mix, and Chris Proctor, a local jam scene legend, on guitar.


In Tim’s own words: “This is the blues, but with a great big smile on its face”.
