Showtime 8pm doors open at 7:00pm Chandler Travis has had a long and checkered career in the world of show biz, beginning in in the seventies when he and Steve Shook joined up as Travis Shook and the Club Wow. Besides achieving much popularity on the east coast, the duo brought their peculiar blend of comedy and music all over the U.S. and to the nationwide television audience on such programs as the Tonight Show, the Midnight Special, and Dick Cavett. Along the way, they released an album and appeared on stage with everyone from Bonnie Raitt to Bruce Springsteen to especially good pals NRBQ and George Carlin (with whom they toured for many years) to Elvis Costello to-- well, you get the idea.Late in 1996 (much to his own surprise and delight), Travis found himself fronting a nine-piece band, the modestly monikered Chandler Travis Philharmonic -probably the worlds only alternative dixieland / omnipop band. Their debut CD, Lets Have a Pancake, was released in 2000 after his second solo effort, 1999s Ivan in Paris; three more official Philharmonic albums followed, all on the Sonic Trout label, the most recent being 2007's 48 track opus Tarnation and Alastair Sim, along with the 22 other full-length CDs in the improbable and ground-breaking RadioBall series. A new Philharmonic studio effort is expected this winter, following hard on the heels of Chandler's first solo release in a decade, After She Left, which arrives this summer; meanwhile, additional new songs, videos, and recordings can be found on a regular basis at chandlertravis.com.
