About The Chancey Brothers
Genres:
International, Folk, Irish, Rock, Celtic, Country
Band Members:
David Chancey - guitar and vocals - The older brother. David was always momma's favorite. He's the serious one but find him a piano and he quickly becomes the human jukebox. David is the musician's musician in the band. Having studied music theory at Yale, Dave hit the road at a young age with his guitar and hitchhiked his way around. Landing in LA for awhile, he eventually made it back home where his superb guitar playing and talent for making quality music drives the band and keeps his erstwhile brothers in line. , , Bob Chancey - vocals, guitar, hesitant tambourine and other lame attempts at percussion - Bob has never met a microphone he didn't like. Bob is the epitome of an Irish-American - big, loud, and proud - he carries his Irish passion on his sleeve and channels that passion into the traditional songs and ballads. Bob's singing and energy often sets the pace for the band - and he can drive the van, too! , , Joel Chancey - our little brother, Joel, returned to the fold after spending years playing punk music, rock and roll, and other sordid attempts at stardom only to find the banjo is not best suited to that kind of behavior. Joel plays so many instruments it's hard to pen him down. We tried to keep him hidden away but the ladies love him ... we are glad he has found his way home and is now back playing real music with his brothers. He's a gifted musician and adds so much more to the party. , , Kati Chancey - nope, she's not a brother, but our wonderfully talented young cousin who brings a beautiful voice, a dazzling flute, and a little class to this affair. A product of the Academy of Irish Music, Kati is well-versed in the traditional side of Irish music and does her best to keep us real but it's pretty much a lost cause. , , Brendan Chancey - another cousin. When not playing his fiddle and doing his part drinking for the entire band, Brendan spends his time saving lives as a Chicago Fireman. Before that, though, came Irish music. A graduate of the Academy of Irish Music, Brendan comes from a family of musicians here and back in Ireland. A gifted fiddle player and another man who brings a passion to all things Irish - especially music, GAA football, and Guinness! , , , Other family members who often join in on the fun: , , Brother Jeff - he's the youngest of the brothers and we just found out he could play the drums! Who knew??? , , Long lost brother, Mike - he started the band but left to try and pursue a solo career as a flamenco dancer. Wherever you are, Mike, we have a microphone ready for you! He comes, he goes and its like he never left except when he leaves again. , , The wild brother, Gregg Chancey - mandolin, fiddle, percussion, whistles, bass guitar, accordion- Gregg plays any instrument we ask him to and does it well. Unfortunately brother Gregg is in the wind again chasing his next chapter in life. He has the true musician's soul and when the muse calls, he has to go. We think he is in Kansas which is a weird place to find a muse but then you'd have to know Gregg to get it. , , The Chancey-ettes - Meghan and Katie belting out "Son of a Preacher Man". 'Nuff said. , , Cousin Colette - Another amazing fiddle player from the Chancey family tree. Colette often fills in for her brother Brendan when he is too pooped to fiddle Together the Chancey cousins bring some real Irish chops to the band. , , Cousin Catriona - another flute and whistle player and the youngest of our Chancey cousins. Catriona fills in for Kati on occassion and helps fill out the Chancey Orchestra at the major engagements. , , And don't forget the old man himself - always singing and teaching us the joy of music - thanks, Dad. ,
