Album Notes
Slim Chance (Mario Casella) and the Gamblers

In 2008, I was offered the job of playing bass for “Bocci and the Badboys”, playing venues such as the Stone Pony and festivals and events such as “Light of Day“. Though my time with this band was short lived, it was a valuable experience.

After a short stint with Asbury classic band, “The Blackberry Blues Band”, fate itself had led me to the doorstep of “Slim Chance &The Gamblers”. One amazing coincidence after another has led me back to old friends, guitarist, Eric Greene, drummer, Steve Murphy, percussionist, Johnny G. Reo, and new friends, bass player/vocals, Jim Grant, harmonica/vocals, Sandy Mack and keyboards/vocals, Rockin’ Randy Ledet.

Our music is strongly based in Blues and R&B. Our objective is to play for the body, mind and soul in that danceability and lyrical substance are key factors. Johnny G. Reo brings Latin percussion to the table which helps to display Latin influences like Carlos Santana and Ray Baretto. Eric Greene helps to bring an ethereal element, shades of David Gilmore, into our sound. Jim, Steve, Randy and I bring the music down to Earth with a diverse sound that all audiences can enjoy, memorable, with a groove, and fans seem to love to dance to our sounds…

I like to call our sound “Bluesrockafunkadelica, which is Blues, Rock, Funk and Psychedelic music combined, Together we take the gamble at laying our time and our love for music on the table. Serendipity has brought me a wonderful band, wonderful friends and now I am blessed with the gift of song.

I caught their show live and was an instant fan! I love every song on their cd. Great sound. Great musicians!


Discovering something new
Slim Chance and the Gamblers new CD has to be one of the best I have heard in a long time! The Power got me going, Little Red Wagon and Jersey Girls Don't Pump Gas are awesome. Great in the car....even better blasting in the house! Sharing this with everyone I know!!!

Take a chance on Slim Chance
When I received this cd I played it first in my car. I have to bring it in from my car to the house and back again because I don't want to be without it. I now also bring it to work and it gets me through the day. I have played it over and over so much that in no time I knew all the words to all of the songs. This cd is really great, musically and lyrically. This cd is a winner and I can't wait for the next time I can see this band live. Get this cd...You will be glad that you did!


Can't Wait
Saw them at Joey Harrison's Surf Club. Can't wait to see SC & G at the Iridium NYC 12-12-12 .

Love their sound. Soulful. "Harbor Heart" touches the heart of every girl who grew up near the ocean. I can almost smell the sweet sea breeze when that song is playing!! Thanks for making beautiful music.


Slim Chance and the Gamblers are winners!
This is an awesome first album from some very talented musicians. Jersey Girls don't Pump Gas, Little Red Wagon and Blue continue to stay caught in my brain. Get the CD and see them perform live. They are going to be much sought after!


Favorite album this year
I caught this act live at a club in NJ (the Stone Pony) and I was hooked! Great album, love all the songs. Excellent musicians.

Slim Chance & the Gamblers
Now that I have listened to Slim Chance & the Gamblers debut CD several times I have to say without question that it is a collection of wonderful songs with thoughtful lyrics and outstanding musicianship. Slim Chance (Mario Casella) and his fellow band mates show such diversity with respect to the genre of tunes presented here. They cover everything from R&B, Blues, Rock, and even the Reggae flavored Mama's in the Kitchen. Strong vocals, tight rhythm section, tasteful guitars, horns, keys, and terrific percussion work very well together. It's hard for me to pick a favorite tune as they all have grown on me; but if pressed I would have to say The Power and Hey Angel. The Power shows off the band's R&B/Blues capability while Hey Angel lets you know this group of talented musicians know how to rock as well. All in all a wonderful CD which has found it's place on my iPod playlist and the CD player in my car. I eagerly look forward to the next CD!
