Described as “the missing link between the Kinks and Sun Ra,” the Chandler Travis Philharmonic recorded with legendary comedian George Carlin and crosses elements of New Orleans jazz, pop, exotica, and Cajun music with Travis’s rock ’n’ roll base.

The Chandler Travis Philharmonic will perform at Musica in Hudson, New York, on June 12 at 3pm. Donation requested. For more information, call (518) 828-1045 or visit http://www.musicahudson.com/.
