About King Radio:
King Radio is a 7 piece band featuring Frank Padellaro, Brandi Ediss, Ken Maiuri, David Trenholm, Paul Pelis, Greg Saulmon and Patrick Timmons.  Spinning off in stylistic directions from orchestral pop to bossa nova, country to power pop and folk to garage punk, the songs all have one thing in common: delivering catchy hooks with erudite lyrics, usually in about 3 and a half minutes or less.  King Radio has been impressing critics and music fans in the Valley and around the world for over two decades.  "Looking at the heyday of Valley music, this is a primary source band...everything good about Valley music.” - Nicole LaChapelle (Mayor of Easthampton, MA)

About Chandler Travis Three-O:
The Chandler Travis Three-O started as a result of getting various offers from venues that weren't large enough to accommodate the 9 piece Philharmonic, that coincided more or less with the arrivals in the band of string bassist John Clark and saxophonist, keyboardist, and clarinetist Berke McKelvey. With these two, Chandler suddenly had two extremely talented and enthusiastic players who shared his passion for detailing, arranging, and rehearsing, and with the addition of vocalist and longtime supporter Fred Boak, aka The Valet (for what good is a Three-O with only three people?), the Three-O was born. At least two unexpected surprises followed: it gradually became evident that the Three-O could play just about anything the CTP could, plus a few things it couldn't; and it immediately became evident that audiences responded to the mellower approach and tighter focus quite well indeed. Accordingly, the Three-O's well received debut album was released in 2013, followed up recently with their latest, “Backward Crooked From the Sunset.” Life changed, slightly; almost in-perceptively.
