The mighty musical maverick Chandler Travis has made the Capital Region the second home for all of his bands – and there are quite a few of them, including the Catbirds, the Chandler Travis Three-O and the Incredible Casuals. But the big daddy of them all is the Chandler Travis Philharmonic, which features seven (or eight) or nine musicians, all armed with a sense of humor and sartorial style to match their considerable musical brilliance.
Here at Nippertown, we’ve reviewed the band so many times that we’ve just plain run out of adjectives. And metaphors. And accolades… So we’re just gonna leave it at that. If you’ve already seen the CTP, well, then, we don’t have to tell you a thing. And if you haven’t seen them, well, what have you been waiting for?
The Chandler Travis Philharmonic parades into Valentine’s Music Hall in Albany on Saturday (November 3). Singer-songwriter Pete Labonne opens the show at 8pm. Tix are $12.
BUT WAIT… we’re giving away a pair of FREE TIX for Saturday’s show to two lucky Nippertown readers! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too.
