And part of the preparation has been the rehearsal of the Room’s house band The H Gang, which features local legend Roger ‘Buster’ James making a rare breakaway for the night from The Buster James Band.

Roger will be making a musical journey through genres not expected of him into blues, soul but still with a twist of rock included. The band also features Bob Cushing, Jake Jacobs, Paul Wooden, Jim James and Barry Fogg all of whom are associated with tribute band Steemy Dan, joining them will be Dave Rivers of indie rock band Rivers.

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

Also appearing are East Anglian rockers Walkway who are carving out a name for themselves having supporting Status Quo and The Darkness.

Gorleston-based The Hot Stove League will bring an acoustic feel 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.

And bringing a touch of theatrics to evening will be The Bloodshake Chorus, performing with their new line up for the first time. Bloodshake take classic 50s and 60s 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.

Promoter Howard Marshall said: “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, so don’t miss this opportunity to be part of it.”

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.
