Reformed but unrepentant! The band formed by Ronnie Lane after leaving the Faces is back and we can't wait. Support from Dan Raza
SLIM CHANCE, the band Ronnie Lane formed when he left the Faces, is treading the boards again. Original members Steve Simpson, Charlie Hart, Steve Bingham, Alun Davies and Colin Davey, joined by Geraint Watkins, are playing Ronnie’s songs in the spirit of the band’s previous incarnations. More
Renowned for his part in both the Small Faces and the Faces, Lane wrote some of the most heartfelt and haunting songs of the 60s and 70s. Shunning commercial success, he created and toured with his travelling circus, the Passing Show, and left a highly influential musical legacy.
Ronnie Lane and Steve Marriott were one of the great songwriting partnerships of the '60s. Listen to the Small Faces' classics, Itchycoo Park or Lazy Sunday for example. The Faces became one of the great rock and roll bands of the '70s. Ronnie's next great venture, the Passing Show, was equally rich musically but not commercially or in terms of public recognition at the time.
Dan Raza has already established a considerable reputation on the UK singer songwriter and folk roots scene. His distinctive approach has won him many fans and led to his supporting Joan Armatrading on a recent European tour, as well as opening for artists such as Mary Gauthier, Badly Drawn Boy, Cara Dillon and Alejandro Escovedo at concerts throughout the UK and USA. He also had a song, Every Little Dog endorsed by Neil Young when Shakey chose it for his 'Living with War' website. "Truly spellbinding, stunning...if there is any justice in this world, it won't be long before Dan Raza is headlining in a town near you, take my advice and go and see him live, highly recommended." Maverick Magazine "Has the feel of an old fashioned protest singer but without any sort of preaching attitude." Americana UK
