Slim Chance are a brilliant live band, whose members are all fine singers, musicians and showmen, playing an amazing array of instruments. The band is especially known for its pioneering use of fiddle, mandolin and accordion. Recently the Huffington Post described the band as ‘the real deal’, an ‘organic multifaceted collective’, ‘raising the roof’ at one of their regular London gigs.

Slim Chance has its origin in the early seventies, formed by the legendary musician and songwriter, the late great Ronnie Lane, who had been a mainstay of both the Small Faces and the Faces before he went on to pursue his own unique musical vision with Slim Chance.

Since then, the release of the film ‘The Passing Show’, the 2004 concert at the Albert Hall with Pete Townshend, Ronnie Wood and Paul Weller, and more recently the re-release of classic Slim Chance material  by Island/Universal Records, have led to a resurgence of interest in Ronnie Lane’s music and the band Slim Chance.  In the last five years, the band – ‘reformed but unrepentant!’ – have played many club and festival dates around the country, and released two albums on their own label, Fishpool Records.

The line up now features original members Charlie Hart, Steve Simpson and Steve Bingham. They are now regularly joined by Geraint Watkins on keyboards, Brendan O’Neill on drums and as of late, Ronnie’s old stablemate from Small Faces days, Billy Nicholls. Their set includes a host of classic Ronnie Lane songs including Ooh la la, Debris,  The Poacher and How Come as well as original tracks from their recent album “On the Move”.
