Send Us Your Bedhead Photos!

In honor of the artwork on the upcoming “WAVING KISSYHEAD!!, Vol. 2 & 1” CD, coming along in a few weeks, we’re having a BEDHEAD PHOTO CONTEST!! A bedhead photo is a photo you take of yourself first thing in the morning, before you’re really awake, usually in the bathroom. Needless to say, the results […]

Put a Smile On Your Own Damn Face

“Make Yourself Happy“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. I’m kind of surprised I ended up writing a song with this particular groove -shows once again what little control I have over what I do. […]

We All Man, We All Human

“Human“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. The arguably brilliant lyric to this one was penned by my friend and occasional golfing buddy, playwright/director/wunderkind Gip Hoppe, whom I keep trying to talk into stuff but […]

Which One Would You Save?

“Your Wife and Mother“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from their new digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead Vol. 1“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain. This is a cover of a song I first heard a few years ago, thanks to my good friend Rob Hart, the Bully of Broadcasting, […]

It’s E!

“E” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, from their current digital-only EP, “Waving Kissyhead, Vol. 1”, recorded by Ducky Carlisle with Joe Stewart at Dimension Sound in Jamaica Plain, MA.

“E” has always been a crowd favorite, but we play it quite rarely because a.) it’s quite loud and b.) it instantly trashes my voice. Always […]

I Want To Dance With Somebody

“I Want To Dance With Somebody” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic with special guest Steve Westfield, at the Dockside at Brunelle’s Marina in South Hadley, June 11, 2016, recorded by The Valet. A wedding party arrived late to our gig at the Dockside, and the bride wanted to hear “I Want To Dance With Somebody”, apparently […]

Marching Graciously

Well, the 4th of July parade with the Philharmonic Trombone Shout Band was wonderful, and Andrea Daniels shot it brilliantly, bless ‘er, so here’s the proof … can’t thank everyone -all the players and drivers (esp. Ron n Andrea) and crazy folks on the street -enough!

(ps -I know we just put another version […]

A Gift from the Easter Bunny: Great Moments from the Cutting Room

photo by Rachel

  Great Moments from the Cutting Room: “I Can’t Find You” (Aug. 15, 2014) and “Bob What’s-is-name” (Nov. 20, 2013) – recorded by Fred Boak (room mike) and Gerard Hoffman (Sound board) – the former is sort of a moody, downbeat little thing I wrote with a nod to Wilco and […]

A Little Blast of Summer (Video)

Excerpts from “When the Roses Shine in Picardy”, “Tootie Ma”, and “Untitled” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove beach in Provincetown, Sept. 2, 2015, shot by Matt Jenson.

I’ve been dying to share these cool vids that my friend Matt Jenson took at Herring Cove last summer with you for months, but couldn’t talk […]
