Outrageous Fortune is a Boston-based acoustic vintage jazz and blues trio. Their repertoire features innovative arrangements of early jazz (Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong); blues and jug band music (Robert Johnson and the Memphis Jug Band).

The trio is Chris Welles on guitar; Rod Thomas on harmonica; and Dan Dick on upright bass, washboard, dobro and jug. Audiences are wowed by their instrumental virtuosity, and are delighted by their smooth three-part vocal harmonies, their strong groove, and the abundant joy that infuses every performance. Outrageous Fortune has been bringing smiles to New England audiences since 1998 at coffeehouses, festivals, clubs, public libraries, and private events.
