Probable Cause Takes Top Honor In City Living Magazine’s “Best of 2010” Readers Poll Competition as BEST MUSIC ACT!
Rocking the top hits since 1990, Probable Cause earns the distinction as City Living Magazine’s Best Musical Act. Composed of Chris Coghlin, Frank Kosky, Chris Filippone, Kim Santana, and Bob Sheperd, Probable Cause got its first big hit at the 1991 Battle of the Bands at Sir Morgan’s Cove (now the Lucky Dog Music Hall). Crowned as Champions, Probable Cause gained the attention of promoter Dan “Danimal” Hartwell and began touring the Northeast. A mainstay at local venues like JJ’s Sports Bar, Jillian’s, and the Lucky Dog, Probable Cause also play an annual Boston Harbor Sunset Cruise and summer concert at the Atlantic Beach Club in Newport, R.I. The band plays a wide range of music from the top pop and rock hits. “We play everything from Lady Gaga to Godsmack and everything in between,” says Coghlin. “We constantly pursue new material to keep it interesting and fresh while focusing on having a great time, every time we play”

Not a Problem
Did you happen to go to the Plantation Club on July 26? Because one of two things happened – either your article “The incredible shrinking local music scene” (WM, July 18) stirred the masses and the people of Worcester got up off of their couches and came out to check out the music; or Probable Cause is simply an exception to this “shrinking.” Credit must be given where credit is due. Probable Cause is always a guaranteed good time. In their 11th year, they can count on one hand how many times they haven’t packed the place. I do agree that going out these days is usually all about the booze but go to any Probable Cause show and it might start out to be all about the booze but it quickly becomes all about the band. The entire place dances… watches…listens. The band has its handful of regulars but each time they play a new group of fans is created. Times have changed for the music scene in Worcester, from the band’s point of view – lack of venues is a huge factor. Lack of people? Not a problem at all.
