 What Folks are Saying:

“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.”

Leeway’s Homegrown Music Network

“Ball & Chain is a stimulating acoustic duo that will take you on a nostalgic ride thru the decades. With precise silky harmonies, competent musicianship and an ability to deliver wonderful originals, Lucinda and Jon Piro have certainly entertained the folks at Our Daily Bread Bakery & Cafe.  We welcome them back to our cafe’!”            Kayla, Booking Manager for Our Daily Bread Bakery, Blacksburg, VA

“I have greatly appreciated the relationship we have with Ball & Chain.  They are a great group and well worth the money.  It has changed our clientele and brings in regulars and new people when they perform.  We appreciate their flexibility and continue to enjoy having them play at T Flynn’s Pub.”            Tony, Owner of T. Flynn’s Pub, Blacksburg, VA.

“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
