“SLIM CHANCE & THE GAMBLERS DOUBLE DOWN ON THE BIG APPLE - THE CUTTING ROOM – OCT. 5 Slim Chance & The Gamblers is a band that’s been featured here in Shoreworld over the last couple of years. During their relatively short time, they have raised the notability bar here in the Garden State. Paired with well- known rockers such as John Eddie, Marshall Tucker Band, Dave Mason and Southside Johnny, they’ve demonstrated excellent overall appeal to folks looking for old school, blue collar rock and roll. But when you take a look at the combined experience, you can see the focus of what years on the road and time in the studio can do to expedite a great band.”

“Wow! Where do I start?! One of the cool things I’ve always liked about writing for Jersey Beat is the music, and the journey it can take you on. You can go from finding a new, unheard of band that will take you on a musical journey from the bands album, to their show, to an interview, and all the things you discover along the way, the friends you make, the roots and branches that lead you to even more music, is incredible! Especially when your family and friends can share it all with you- and let’s not forget the good karma and the amazing mojo! Well, after listening Slim Chance and The Gamblers first self-titled album, it’s all that I mentioned and so much more! Slim Chance (aka Mario Casella, he also wrote the lions share of these 12 originals), has the kind of world-weary voice that is full of passion, hope, and real-deal blues. The leadoff track “The Power,” envelops all those emotions, as Slim and the band take us on realistic trip though the blues- actually life- wit”

"Rarely have I found the perfect alignment of dreamy lyrics, masterful music, and seasoned musicians, that I have found in Slim Chance & The Gamblers. They came to me on a beam of synchronicity. With them, I have that rare tonal vehicle to musically magic carpet me to the real Jersey shore and beyond to specific colors in the rainbow." Calvin Schwartz, NJ Discover TV July, 2012
