Slim Chance - still playing the music of Ronnie Lane
Friday 03 February 2017
have come together to celebrate the music of one of the shining lights of the ’60s and ’70s British music scene and the man who formed the band after leaving The Faces, Ronnie Lane
, who tragically died in 1997 after his much-publicised twenty year battle with multiple sclerosis.
Over time there have been many musicians who worked with Ronnie, as part of Slim Chance
and its offshoots.
The present line includes original members Steve Simpson, Charlie Hart and Steve Bingham who are joined by Geraint Watkins, John Lingwood, Des Horsfall, and Jim Russell, but this is merely the tip of the iceberg for over the years there have been contributions by such illustrious musicians as Benny Gallagher, Graham Lyle, Henry McCullough, Ian McClagan, Ian Stewart, Pete Townshend and Mick Weaver.
Ronnie Lane believed in life, music, friends, and having a good time, sentiments that his band, Slim Chance have inherited and will undoubtedly bring to the Pavilion for this very special show.
Tickets are £19.50 and available through the Pavilion box office (01323 841414
) or online
