giantfan – Beat Shop with Beat Fest


Tim Reidy is at it again, this time as “giantfan” over at LiveJournal.

We’re getting the feeling that our recent performance at Beat Fest, an outdoor show in front of the River St Beat Shop in Troy, NY, may turn out to be one of our most photographed shows ever. We here at […]

Nippertown – LIVE: Beat Fest @ River Street Beat Shop, 7/7/12

Review and video by Joel Patterson

Okay, so you’re determined to write an algorithm that will capture the magic that is the Chandler Travis Philharmonic. The pj’s and bathrobes, that’s easy to program, and the goofy hats. Every one a charming misfit – but devastatingly fluid on […]

Tim also created a pretty […]

The Return of Thurston Kelp

Thurston Kelp – “self-portrait”


We here at Chandler Travis Industries were thrilled to discover a new column in The Noise written by Cranky Cape Codder Thurston Kelp. It’s been well over a year since the elusive Kelp last brought his opinions to the masses and his latest column, Old Cape Cod, is a […]

We’re Back Online!


Sorry for the downtime the last couple of weeks.

Nippertown! – LIVE: The Chandler Travis Three-O @ the Ale House, 6/16/12

Review and video by Joel Patterson

I have given up trying to isolate in a test tube what it is that Chandler Travis has. But I wish I could bottle and sell it. I would have a formula for musical brilliance on steroids – a pill that would give you super-human knacks for being […]
