The amazing, unique, gifted, hilarious and brilliant Chandler Travis and his almost big band The Philharmonic takes center stage tonight at the Lizard presenting, Bocce & Bourbon: the Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger" Look for cameos, special guest appearances and tons of fun!

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic has kept a low profile the past couple of years while Chandler has enjoyed developing two great new bands, the Catbirds and the Chandler Travis Three-O (the latter being a smaller, satellite version of the Philharmonic -both delivered critically acclaimed debut albums in 2013), but we're back with a vengeance in 2015, with two new albums: "Bocce & Bourbon: The Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger" coming in March; and "Waving Kissyface Vol. 1", coming this summer or so.

"Bocce & Bourbon" is, on the one hand, a compilation of 19 examples of Chandler's best work with his favorite lyricist, David Greenberger (also of Men & Volts and Duplex Planet fame), that spans more than three decades and includes both the Chandler Travis Philharmonic and Three-O as well as the Catbirds and the Incredible Casuals; but about half of it (nine new songs, plus a re-imagined alternate version) is brand new. The lyrics share compassion, warmth, and inventive imagery, echoed in music that is gently but firmly idiosyncratic, and the whole is surprisingly coherent -hard to catagorize, perhaps, but not hard to get.

We're very proud of this collection, and the CTP and 3 both plan on touring and spreading the word as extensively as possible for rest of 2015.

Dixieland romps, twisted Mardi Gras marches, sweaty 60's rock, smoky torch songs, and occasional novelties that sound somewhere between Randy Newman and They Might Be Giants, all with hilariously offbeat lyrics. The world would be a better place if Travis would only visit more often.  Sam Hurwitt, San Francisco Express

the best band in the universe   Rob Caldwell, Hudson-Catskill Register Star

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic is a 9-piece ensemble from Boston that includes a horn section, string bass, keyboard, mandocello, guitar, drums, accordion, and singing valet. It's possible they might be the missing link between the Kinks and Sun Ra
