July 4 hat trick three-way video spectacular!!

“Mid-morning in Moscow” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, Provincetown, MA, Sept. 4, 2016, shot by Belinda. We’ve posted many different versions of this one, because we always have a great time playing it; with our first Herring Cove show of the season coming up this Wednesday, and this being another damn fine […]

Softly in the Night – Live Video

“Softly in the Night” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, Sept. 4, 2016, shot (and originally broadcast live!)by Belinda.

I think this is the third song we’ve put up from this particular show, and we’ve put up other vids from previous Herring Cove shows -they’re just always a blast, and that whole sunset […]

E (Live Video/Wellfleet Preservation Hall)

“E” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Preservation Hall for the “Waving Kissyhead” record release party, Feb. 18, 2017, shot, edited, and embellished by Paul Cass for Lower Cape TV.

Always one of our favorites, now scarier than ever! Please note the color-coordinated bathrobes on our fine horn section, the June Trailer Dancers, as […]

An Ivan in Paris Live Two-fer

​”Ivan in Paris“- the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, recorded by The Valet at an outdoor party thrown by the Perkins Fambly, July 26, 2014.

This song has a somewhat long, strange history. It started life as an extremely minor, tossed-off experiment with an obscure electronic instrument, an Omnichord, that Bruce Maclean loaned me that somehow ended […]

Suddenly, Everything is Different

“Suddenly Everything Is Different” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic at Herring Cove, P’town, Sept. 4, 2016, shot by Belinda. Couldn’t think of a snappier way to kick off 2017’s SOTW series (and to beat the winter blues!) than to feature a little shot of one of our favorite summer gigs with this cover of a […]

“I Wanna Rock Christmas” – the Chandler Travis Philharmonic with the Athol Thingerth -video from last Sunday, Dec. 11th, at the Cape Cod Cavalcade for the Homeless at Ocean’s Edge, Brewster, shot by Ron Daniels; audio from the 2009 Cheap Seats Christmas benefit compilation “A Christmas Miracle”, our track recorded by Chris Blood at Trout […]

This is No Time For Fun!

“This Is No Time For Fun (This Is Christmas)“- Steve Shook featuring the Elftone All Girl Ukulele Revue -recorded by Jon Evans at Brick Hill.

We posted this one last year, as a video, I think, from last year’s Cape Cavalcade show, but here’s the newly minted official studio version of this practically timeless holiday […]

“This s No Time For Fun (This Is Christmas)“- Steve Shook & the Elftone All-Girl Ukulele Revue -recorded live at the Cape Cod Christmas Cavalcade, Dec. 13, 2013, rough board mix by Chris Blood.

Well, what can I say? Brilliant. Note how similarly misanthropic this is lyrically to the xmas […]

We’re Singing & Swinging This Year

“Maybe This is Our Year / My Blue Heaven” – recorded by The Valet (that’s me!) at Janice & Billy Perkins’ Birthday Hootenanny, July 26, 2014 – Chandler premiered this song in January 2013 during a Cape & Islands Radio interview. Pretty soon after that he began incorporating “My Blue Heaven” into the arrangement, […]
