Slim Chance

Slim Chance

Details

When Ronnie Lane embarked on the last stage of his career - which had already included the Small Faces and The Faces - he wrote some of his strongest songs and recorded several remarkable albums with his own band,  Slim Chance.

Slim Chance is still very much in action, and boasts a great line-up consisting of three original members, Steve Bingham, Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson,  joined by three top class musicians: Brendan O’Neill on drums, Billy Nicholls (ex Who) acoustic guitar and vocals, and Bob Dylan’s favourite, the renowned Geraint Watkins on keys and vocals.

40 years on from when Ronnie was at the height of his creative powers, the band is enjoying playing together in the spirit that Ronnie championed so magnificently. As well as fine versions of songs such as ‘How Come’, ‘The Poacher’, ‘Ooh la la’ and ‘Debris’, the band is now performing  songs from its latest album, ‘New Cross Road’, which is now available on the band’s own label, Fishpool Records.

All in all the band delivers a barnstorming show  that ‘digs deep into the roots of rock ‘n’ roll’’, appeals to all ages, and has aptly been described as  ‘balm for the soul and music from the heart’!  Catch it while you can!
