May 4th - Chance Ray Band
Raised on a cattle ranch, Chance and his five siblings know well the hardships of growing up in a blue collar family. Dad a rancher and life-long stone mason, and Mom a factory worker helped show Chance how to appreciate the good things in life and not dwell on the hardships.
The hard edges of life were softened by a close family bond weaved together with humor, wit, and music; resulting in songwriting laced with adversity, heartbreak, and humor about life growing up in rural America.
Chance Ray and his Good Sinners were fortunate enough to win Ranch Factor 2016 and are determined to continue the success of past Ranch Factor winners Dalton Domino and the Prophets and Outlaws.
Based in Fort Worth Texas, Chance's band features;
Keven Beaird on electrified bass and Upright
Mark Belding on lead guitar, Pedal Steel and Dobro
Kelly LeBlanc on drums
Jeremiah Herrin on Banjo, Mandolin, and Flattop Guitar
