BACK FOR GOOD

An endless passion for a better world,
creating unbelievable moments.

Music goes deeper than anything else. Where religion, politics, power, and money capitulate, music always holds its promise. To connect people, touch and move them. Creating unbelievable moments. That’s why we put our heart and soul into our songs. And keep on thinking about what could be done to improve the world. We’re trying to eliminate the negative vibes: with catchy melodies and lyrics that send out a message! So keep on listening to Chancy Squire. Together for a better world. Be part of it!

How it all begann

In 1980, three friends – Klaus Rieger, Wolfgang Vorpahl, and Nikolas Beyer – founded the band in Hamburg, Germany’s gate to the world. A few months later, Mike Boch and Dirk Kowalewski joined in on drums and keyboard. After Nikolas left, Willi Busacker (lead guitar) – and later on, as a substitute for Willi, Michael “Schmiddle” Schmidt and Michael Austermeier (bass) – completed the band. They played several major clubs in and around Hamburg with overwhelming success: the well-known Onkel Pös Carnegie Hall, Logo, Knust, Remter, and many more.

The band has reformed after a long break. Three guys from the original line-up are now bringing the amazing songs back to life. Supported by friends who made this album possible. Modern arrangements with a playful ease are the sound of the musician’s hearts. Togetherness, a lifelong friend-ship, being one team – these are what’s most important.
