The Chancey Brothers
In the spirit of their heroes, the Clancy Brothers and Tommy Makem, the Chancey Brothers sing pub songs, ballads and rebel tunes. Adding in favorites from almost every Irish artist you can think of, such as Christy Moore, Saw Doctors and the Wolf Tones, the Chanceys are a lively act for any occasion. Regular performers at most of Chicago’s finest Irish pubs, the Chanceys are quickly becoming the favorite band for many folks. Featuring guitars, mandolin, whistle and fiddle, the Chanceys always liven up a party and if you are lucky they might even throw in a little rock and roll!
The Chancey Brothers have been playing around Chicagoland since 2001. Starting with a shared love of the Irish pub songs, the band went out and began sharing that love with audiences in Irish pubs all over. Over time, they began adding other types of music to their repertoire; covering favorite rock and country songs and basically anything that the Brothers enjoyed playing themselves. The band released its latest CD, Patriots and Immigrants in February 2017.
The Chancey Brothers are Bob, Brendan, Kati, Dave, Gregg and Joel….Chancey. The band performs at Irish Fest on Sunday, July 8 on the Fifth Province Stage.
