Winston-Salem Journal – “Llama Rhymes” review

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic, Llama Rhymes, Sonic Trout. 3 & 1/2 stars

(Ed Bumgardner)

Chandler Travis made his reputation, first as a comic, then as the leader of The Incredible Casuals, a band beloved in its native New England. Travis’ latest venture is his most twisted and rewarding – and that is really saying something. […]

Boston Herald – “Llama Rhymes” review

THE CHANDLER TRAVIS PHILHARMONIC “Llama Rhymes’” (Sonic Trout) 3 stars (out of 4)

Cape Cod-based Chandler Travis is a rock ‘n’ roll Britannica. He gleefully catalogs one vintage style after another on this never-a-dull-moment outing by his horn-propelled, eight-piece-plus-guests Philharmonic.

Boston Phoenix – “Llama Rhymes” review

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic LLAMA RHYMES (SONIC TROUT) 3 stars

If Chandler Travis has a problem with his music’s being categorized as “zany” or “wacky” – adjectives he especially detests – that’s his own fault. His long-time band the Incredible Casuals have blended comic wordplay – even in the service of serious numbers – and […]

Chandler Travis Philharmonic Stretches Their Bizarro Potential On New CD

by Tim Wood, Cape Cod Chronicle

Anyone who’s ever seen the Chandler Travis Philharmonic live knows that there’s more to the band than its sound. Band members’ penchant for wearing pajamas and boxer shorts, often accessorized with festive headgear, is an attention-grabber, for sure. Those who can get beyond the scruffy visuals are rewarded by […]

Shake It Up – “Llama Rhymes” review

Chandler Travis Philharmonic Llama Rhymes – (Sonic Trout)

As good a time as most NRBQ records, friends (and not only because Joey Spampinato appears on a track).

A good time is what’s promised here, but note that Llama Rhymes isn’t some mere novelty record. Sure, things can get a little wacky but Travis can indeed […]
