Reformed but unrependant – a welcome first visit to the Flowerpot for Slim Chance who keep alive the musical genius of Ronnie Lane. Ronnie always jokingly claimed that he found the musicians for Slim Chance in the pages of Exchange and Mart. In 2010 Charlie Hart and Steve Simpson trawled the streets of South London and miraculously found three more ex-Slim Chancers who were all keen to sign up again to the quest for Ronnie’s musical holy grail. By gigging round the country the line-up has gelled into a fine band and become a powerful entity in its own right.

The Line Up is...

STEVE SIMPSON: vocals, guitar, mandolin and fiddle, has worked with Frankie Miller, Eric Bibb, Roger Chapman, and played on Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance, One for the Road and See Me.
CHARLIE HART vocals: fiddle, accordion and keys, has played with Pete Brown, Ian Dury, Eric Clapton and worked on Ronnie Lane's Slim Chance, One for the Road, Rough Mix, See Me, Rockpalast.
STEVE BINGHAM: vocals and bass, played with Geno Washington, the Foundations, Colin Blunstone, worked on Anymore for Anymore, played bass on The Poacher and toured with the Passing Show

BRENDAN O'NEILL: drums, has worked with Rory Gallagher, Nine Below Zero, Glen Tillbrook to mention a few. Brendan knew Steve Mariott and is highly respected for his all round musicianship.
BILLY NICHOLLS: vocals, mandolin and acoustic guitar, knew Ronnie well as he and the Small Faces played on each other's records back in the Sixties. Since that time Billy has been a prolific and successful songwriter and singer and has also worked extensively with The Who.
