The Blues with a Great Big Smile on Its Face.

Tim Penn & The Second Line are rapidly gathering a reputation as one of the top New Orleans R&B outfits around London. If you like Professor Longhair, Dr John, Allen Toussaint, The Neville Brothers, mixed in with an occasional old school Jelly Roll Morton - then this is one band you won’t want to miss. In Tim’s own words “This is the blues, but with a great big smile on its face”.

"Right from the outset, the album sounds like it was recorded at a different time, sometime in the past when music was music. The band immediately sounds great, authentic, and punchy.”"
Top UK New Orleans Artist

"These guys are amazing!! Their popularity and presence grow with each gig they do for us. Not surprising with the exceptional level of talent, commitment and all-round positive energy they bring to every performance"
The Ram Jam Club at The Grey Horse, Kingston

Tim Penn is a pianist with a blues heritage that stretches back to the 1970s when he was a member of Dorris Henderson’s Eclection and also played with Kevin Coyne alongside Andy Summers (The Police) and Gordon Smith (Described by John Peel as ” The foremost white Blues guitarist in the world “). These days, as well as leading his own band The Second Line, he also plays piano and accordion with The Cadillac Kings (“The U.K.’s finest purveyors of blues & swing” Blues in Britain Magazine).

Over the last few years, The Second Line have firmly established their reputation as one of the top New Orleans R&B outfits in London, regularly gigging at and selling out top London clubs and bars such as Nightjar in Old Street, Upstairs at Ronnie Scott’s, The Bull’s Head in Barnes, Pizza Express Soho and The Ram Jam in Kingston.

Mix this up with some Afrobeat/R&B honking tenor sax, some wild wah-wah guitar, and a hot rhythm section and the gumbo is ready to be stirred and cooked.
