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 […]

A Mysterious Selection

“A Mysterious Selection” by The Mystery Singer, recorded live at the Jamaica Plain Porchfest, July 9, by The Valet. Don’t know how this man was, nor what he was singing (love to find out more, if anyone out there has any clues!) All I know was that he wandered up during our show saying that […]

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 […]

  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 […]

“Bocce & Bourbon Fest Tonight!” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded live at the Cotuit Center For the Performing Arts, March 14, 2015 by Fred Boak with sound board portion mixed by Tom Tracy and Colin Leach.

A lot of times I’ll just get so up for some gig that I’ll write something a day or […]

By the Way

“By the Way” -from our new album, “Bocce & Bourbon: the Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger“.

This is one of my favorite songs we’ve ever written, and the one I was most looking forward to recording, though, as frequently happens when you love something this much, there was probably never any real […]

The Strongman of North America – the final mix


“The Strongman of North America” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic from the new CD, “Bocce & Bourbon: the Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger“, recorded by Ducky Carlisle at Ice Station Zebra (and me, a little, here.)

So a couple weeks ago, we put up an early, unfinished mix of “Strongman“, […]

Chandler Travis Philharmonic – “Rich Woman”

“Rich Woman“- The Chandler Travis Philharmonic at a private party in Dennis, MA., May 26, 2012, recorded by Anton “Fred” Jodsworth T. Boak (aka The Valet). Always loved this old song, which I first heard on a fantastic compilation of r’n’b from the old Specialty label called “Creole Kings of New Orleans”. Our version […]

The Evolution of Disappointment – Chapter Four

This is the Valet here, Chandler asked me to write something for the long-overdue Chapter Four of our continuing series here at Chandler Travis World HQ, “The Evolution of Disappointment.” In this chapter we re-visit the first performance of the song by the full Philharmonic, recorded at the now-departed Davis Square institution, the Rosebud, on […]
