Now it Can be Told – There is a New Album in the Works!

We here at Chandler Travis World HQ have been all atwitter about the news that there is a new CD in the works. We tried like darn to keep our collective mouths shut until it was official, and now we can tell you about it.

It all started when Chandler decided to put together […]




It’s sure not the Blizzard of ’78, but the timing and predictions of today’s snow has caused the cancellation of tonight’s Philharmonette show at Sally O’Briens.

Hopefully we’ll be back there early next year – keep an eye on our Dates page.

Mid-Morning in Moscow

“Mid-Morning in Moscow” – live at Bubala’s By the Bay in Provincetown, MA on September 5, 2013, recorded in our patented new Behind-the-Band Horrend-o-Phonic method by The Valet.

Chandler & I were driving to some off-Cape show recently, listening to the last few songs from the final Bubala’s show of the 2013 season, when the […]

Charley’s Prelude – Chopin to Kirby to Byron

We’re back to video for this week’s “Song of the Weak!!!”

Our friend Chef Tony Scungilli, chef/owner of one of our favorite Cape Cod restaurants Terra Luna and DJ/host of The Squid Jigger’s Blend show on community radio WOMR/WFMR, shot this video of the Philharmonette playing “Charley’s Prelude.” Originally based on Chopin’s Prelude in E […]

“Badly dressed men […] – Chandler Travis Three-0 with Pete Donnelly at the World Cafe Live

Dan DeLuca, Inquirer Music Critic Email Dan DeLuca

In addition to being a member of […]

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 […]

Is Chandler Travis really the King of the World?


If he is, isn’t it surprising that such royalty would bring his minions of mirth to play in sleepy little Chatham at a Welsh pub that is as appropriate for music as a saddle is on a sheep? Ouch, okay, in the same breath let’s give proprietor Mr. Tom Hope credit for the […]

SoundOut Consumer Insight Report – “Anne”

  Below are highlights from the “SoundOut Consumer Insight Report” on the Chandler Travis Philharmonic’s recording of “Anne” (This was a you-get-the-first-one-free situation, presented by the always heinous Sonicbids organization, the folks who made it possible for artists to pay people to reject them who used to do it for free); for no particular […]

Song of the Weak Doubleheader – “Stuck” & “Your Wife and Mother”


“Stuck” – the Philharmonette, recorded live at the Peint O’Gwrw in Chatham, NY (our favorite Welsh pub!) on July 8, 2011, by The Valet – a Three-O mainstay, and one of my favorite morose instrumentals… that’s newcomer Cliff Spencer on organ, along with Berke on bass clarinet, Rikki on drums, John on bass, […]
