You have been Warned!

I'm going on a little 4-show Halloween weekend tour-ette with the Chandler Travis Philharmonic this weekend, and it sure would be much appreciated if any of you reading this were able to show up and see us! Also, if you have friends (or enemies) who you think might enjoy (or hate) the band, please encourage them to come out and see us, too.

We will be terrorizing the following towns:
  • Thursday, October 29, 8pm - The Turning Point Cafe in Piermont, NY (468 Piermont Ave, Piermont, NY - (845) 359-1089) - $15

    Our first appearance at the Turning Point. I've been hoping to play this spot for quite some time, and we're all really excited about playing there. Personally, I think the admission price is worth seeing how we're going to fit all 9 of us in the general vicinity of the stage!

  • Friday, October 30, 8pm - The Avalon Theatre in Easton, MD (40 East Dover St. Easton, MD - (410) 822-7299) - $20

    Our return to the wonderful Avalon Theatre. We were there in the spring of 2008 and had a great time. It's a beautiful old vaudeville theater with a great sound.

  • Saturday, October 31, 8pm - Godfrey Daniels in Bethlehem, PA (7 East Fourth Street, Bethlehem, PA - (610) 867-2390) - $18.50

    We're back in steel country for the 3rd time since last November, when we played this intimate listening room for the first time. We were back again this summer for the Bethlehem Music Festival. And heck, it's Halloween - how much more fun can you have than seeing the Philharmonic on Halloween!

  • Sunday, November 1, 8:30pm & 10pm - The Rodeo Bar in New York, NY (375 3rd Ave, New York, NY - (212) 684-6500) - FREE!

    The first of our Month-o-Sundays at the Rodeo Bar, our new home in NYC. We'll be there every Sunday in November except the 15th. Two sets, no cover charge. Come on down!


If you haven't seen or heard this band yet, be sure to check out the website; we have quite a few audio & video samples there. If you have already seen or heard the band, well ... please ignore what you remember and show up anyway!

I'm not 100% certain, but I believe the band lineup for these shows will be:
Chandler Travis - guitar, vocals, King of the World
Rikki Bates - drums
Dinty Child - mandocello, mandolin, accordion, guitar, vocals
John Clark - bass
Phil Clements - keyboards, vocals
Mark Chenevert - tenor sax, clarinet, vocals
Keiichi Hashimoto - trumpet, vocals
Bob Pilkington - trombone, vocals
Fred Boak - vocals, valet

Sure hope to see youse - be sure to say "hi" if you make it.

Why no shows on the West Coast?

Brecht, we'd love to make it to the West Coast, but it's a big band and we'd either have to work our way across the country or somehow find a way to fly out there. We've done it a couple of times with subsets of the full band, but really, you gotta see the whole shebang.

Hopefully we'll make it out there sometime.

I would love to see the band, but I was mostly just being facetious. Perhaps I should leave the humor to you, and P.G.Wodehouse, who I'm reading at present. I do find that I'm funnier when I make fewer jokes.

I will make it to Boston over Xmas/New Year's, as will Clay.
