Ramones – Road to Ruin (Last Chance — Poughkeepsie, NY)
I met my husband walking through these doors. It was called the “Last Chance” back then (1976). His dad had been a founding member of “The Last Chance Jazz Band” prior to his untimely departure from this world.
The legendary Dutchess Theater opened in 1912 as a vaudeville theater and picture house and, after going through numerous name changes and ownerships, closed from 1945 to 1970. Plover reopened the building in 1970 as Frivolous Sal’s Last Chance Saloon. The name was later shortened to The Last Chance, then finally The Chance.
