What Folks are Saying:

“Husband Jon Piro may be from the Bronx but he plays authentic Americana music that is honest and vibrant. His wife Lucinda McDermott has got a sultry growl that will drive most men crazy in a good way. They do all their own singing and playing and can ride together in one car.

They’re perfect for the juke joint and now that the first CD, Late For The City, is available at their shows or on their website, they’ll soon get too big to play here all the time so you better drop by and give ‘em a listen now.”  John Porter

“Original Americana with an edge, eclectic covers thrown in for good measure. Passion, fun and sass pervade Jon & Lucinda’s blend of rock, R&B, blues, country, folk resulting in vocals and harmonies that stroke your soul. And if you don’t have a soul, then you’ll still enjoy listening to  good music.”

“We discovered Ball & Chain at one of our favorite restaurants, The Palisades, a few months before our wedding. After enjoying their music throughout dinner, we decided they had to be a part of our big day! From the time I met Lucinda and Jon, they met our every need…from deciding what song to walk down the aisle to to learning a new song especially for our ceremony. They definitely went above and beyond to make our wedding day the most special day of our lives!”              Bethany and Andrew

“The music of Ball & Chain made our wedding perfect!  Lucinda and Jon were professional, easy to work with and very personable, The music was an exact fit with our vision for the wedding.  Lucinda sang a beautiful solo during the ceremony and they both rocked it at the reception.  We would not have had our music any other way! Lucinda and Jon -Thank you so very much!”              KT and Elizabeth
