Suburban Steps To Rockland - The story of The Ealing Club makes its Ealing Premiere following sell-out events at The Barbican & the Elgar Room of The Royal Albert Hall. 

Suburban Steps to Rockland is a feature-film documentary that revolves around the story of the Ealing Club, a venue recently defined by the prestigious Mojo Magazine as 'The Cradle of British Rock' thanks to its role in creating a new musical movement whose participants continue to influence the sound of contemporary music.

On the 17th of March 1962 the Ealing Jazz Club, commonly known as the Ealing Club, was advertised in the UK music press as Britain's first Rhythm and Blues venue. The list of influential musicians that would become associated with the club is breathtaking and it became the launchpad for the careers of a golden generation of British rock musicians.

The film features video footage, interviews, photographs and animated sequences documenting the beginnings of a seminal period of British rock history; a time before the height of the swinging sixties.

The film presents fresh and amusing anecdotes about the bands who would eventually play their sounds to the world, the list of interviewees includes Geno Washington (Geno Washington and the RamJam Band), Jeremy Spencer (Fleetwood Mac), Eric Bell (Thin Lizzy), Nick Simper (Deep Purple), Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker (Cream), John Mayall (John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers), Paul Jones (Manfred Mann), Eric Burdon (The Animals), Dick Taylor (The Pretty Things) and many more
