OUTSIDE CHANCE is a rock/dance cover band that has been playing at local venues for the last ten years. With many years of playing experience – there’s not a lot we can’t do!
Having a true understanding of room dynamics, we can guarantee a good time will be had by all. We have an extensive song list ranging from Classic rock from the 70’s and 80’s through songs that are currently playing on the top of the Charts.
Jeffis the founder of Outside Chance. On lead guitar and keyboards (will cymbals between his knees be next?) Jeff has been playing since he first stole his father’s guitar at the age of 3. A familiar face on the Connecticut coverband scene, Jeff played for 15 years with Take Five and 8 years with Harmony Inc. He can also be found lurking about at open mic nights and area music stores! A true Beatles fanatic – his roots are in rock and roll in all its facets. His later influences include; Terry Kath, Jeff Beck and Frank Zappa. With a demand for excellence – he believes there is no reason a wrong chord should ever be played. Counseling may help!
Peggy was discovered by the Harmony Incorporated band at a friend’s party where the band was playing 7 years ago.She sang one song and they immediately recognized her talent and persuaded her to join the band. Now with Outside Chance - Peggy brings a fresh outlook with her ability to pick great songs that people love to hear. Not only is she a great lead singer but she brings her own style to each song she sings and makes them her own. Her infectious energy always gets the crowd going!
Mike “Juice” - Mike lays down the beat with his outstanding bass playing. His passion is Yes music along with Rush. A huge Chris Squire fan Mike loves to throw bass runs from some of his favorite Yes songs throughout our music. And it always works. (no - he's not related to Danny DeVito!!)
Gnorm -On lead guitar and vocals - With over 25 years of playing experience - Gnorm is plug and play! A former member of the power trio "Split Decision" and a six piece horn band "Brother Clampett and the Brass Knuckle Horns" GNorm is a welcome addition to Outside Chance. While his attempt at jokes leave a lot to be desired (!) he more than makes up for it with his guitar playing!
