Album Notes
If ya looking for songs about pickup trucks, raising your beer glass & Syrupy love songs . . . you are not going to find much of this subject matter on our 2nd release "JACKPOT". There is much more in life to be pondered and our aim is to address subjects like domestic violence, usury, dead beats, woman who bury their husbands in the garden, musicians who are slaves to their craft and why has dooms day come and gone again and yet I am writing these notes.

I can tell you . . . expect a Rock & Roll album. One that's gonna make you want to dance, grin and maybe shed a tear. You may find this album much more focused than our self titled debut album "Sim Chance & The Gamblers". We have found our game and all bets are on.

Just so there's no confusion; "JACKPOT" is a rock n' roll album.    

1.   Good Thing In A Bad Way - A song about a woman of contradictions. She's the best and the worst thing that can happen to you. 

2.   Don't Poison The Water - If you're losing your home and you need help desperately, be sure the rope you're thrown isn't fitted for your neck. 

3.   My Better Half (The Valentine Song) - Let's face the facts fellas - She's got ya beat by a mile. 

4.   What Kinda Man - (Hot Chic tune) Written for the indie film "Who's Jenna" to be released summer 2016.

5.   Fast Lane To Hell - A lifetime of watching construction jobs rushed headlong off a cliff, to make deadlines to reach the gates of hell.  

6.   Run Chicken Run - A deadbeat husband trying to run away from what he can't handle -- Mainly, himself. 

7.   Paradise In Texas - An abused woman takes desperate and irreversible measures to escape her tormentor, and seeks refuge by returning home.

8.   Betty Louz Bluez - This lovely lady kills her annoying husband and buries him in the garden.  Good fertilizer makes for nice tomatoes. 

9.   We Ain't Here For The Money - We are--But we ain't. We have bills to pay. But as musicians, money is not our incentive or driver. If it is…Better quit now.  

10. Wonderful Day To Be Alive - Dec. 21ST 2012 has come and gone,  And we're still here.  Good thing I didn't rob that bank on the 19TH...

Some music that real... finally
Finally here, and none too soon. This CD embodies the essnce of Rock And Roll, with influences from Blues, R&B, New Country Rock and catchy funky pop melodies. The Lyrics are superb, and the melodies are memorable. My personal fav is Wonderful Day to Be Alive... so cool and different.

Take a listen, and get your copy an leave a review!!!! I always check reviews on every thing I buy, so take that second and leave one... Great Job Slim Chance & The Gamblers, I personally love Better Half, perfect Valentine gift. This band has the rock, bluesy sound, and you will even find a little country. Versatile band, with a hit CD! If you liked their last CD you will LOVE this one, mastered by Perris Alexander. Thought out from the first note to the very last!

"JACKPOT", took me by surprise ! Not only are all of the songs on this album, very well written and performed, great mixture a little country and a little ballads, to some fantastic Rocking, Bluesy songs! I would say Slim Chance & The Gamblers, hit the 3 Gold Bars with this Album!


Great Variety
Slim Chance and the Gamblers once again gave their fans, new and old a satisfying variety of rock and roll infused with blues,soul, funk and a little county. Slim's vocals show real emotion with excellent supporting harmonies that please the ear. The band is tight with great lead guitars supported by a generous bass, enticing keyboards, persuasive percussion and demonstrative horns, sax and fiddle when appropriate. The album is exceptionally arranged and a pleasure to listen. Everyone will find a favorite on this album with "Better Half" a Valentine tribute for sure and "Wonderful Day to Be Alive" a feel good song when it looks like things are a mess. Sit back, crank it up and enjoy! This group of troubadours brings a pleasing gift for audio lovers.
