Chandler Travis Philharmonic – Truro Summer Concerts at the Library

August 8, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

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. The band—all colorfully garbed 8 pieces of them, plus singing valet Fred Boak—have introduced the concept of alternative dixieland and omnipop to audiences all over Massachusetts and far beyond (San Francisco, Chicago, and especially New Orleans and New York City have proved particularly responsive—the Village Voice declared them “keenly entertaining,” and Chandler “a true New England eccentric and a master of daft power pop,” and the band “a blend of Ringling Bros. and Ra” that “puts the harm back in Philharmonic”; the New Yorker has repeatedly concurred).
