“ …smart, swinging and winningly strange… a fairly fantastical free-wheeling show full of memorable tunes…”   Philadelphia Inquirer

 “Chandler Travis cannot do anything with an entirely straight face; throughout his career, his excursions in bar band rock & roll, new wave-influenced power pop, and eclectic jazz-influenced big band music have been delivered with a knowing wink and a sly sense of the absurd.”  Allmusic.com

“…playful original songs that mix mind-bending wordplay with jazz, shimmering rock, and horn-fuelled R & B.” The New Yorker

“A keenly entertaining blend of the Ringling Bros. and Sun Ra…[that] puts the harm back in Philharmonic.”  Village Voice

“…a one-of-a-kind songwriter whose absurdist wit coexists with a bruised idealism that gives his best tunes a deep and haunting resonance.” Time Out, New York

“…[CTP’s] gleeful tendency to ignore genre boundaries—not to mention the musicians’ preference for goofy costumes—evokes New Orleans. Elvis Costello-like pop songs, avant-jazz vamps, novelty pieces, and way off-beat lyrics factor into the wildly inventive mix.” Times Picayune (New Orleans)

Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit cooperative that brings great music to Lafayette. Please consider becoming a dues-paying Friend of Bob

2017 dues are $10, though if you 'd like to donate more, that would be great. (Since we are a registered 501 [c][3] organization, donations above the $10 level can be tax-deductible.) Before each show, we e-mail a newsletter giving background information -- membership dues pay for the printing of posters and e-mailing of these newsletters. Plus, our affordable admission prices in small venues sometimes fail to cover expenses, so membership contributions provide us with a safety net for such occasions. Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that works to bring outstanding live music to Lafayette. A membership form can be found by clicking on the How Can You Help button at the top of this page.

Please support this cooperative effort to bring fine music to Lafayette.
