Slim Chance: The band formed by the late, great Ronnie Lane’s (The Faces, The Small Faces). Three original members with the legendary Billy Nicholls plus Geraint Watkins and Brendan O’Neill.
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 aim is to create a show which celebrates the range of Ronnie’s later music: to take this show to people in village halls and clubs, festivals and theaters at home and abroad; and eventually, joined by numerous friends, to resurrect the Passing Show itself.
