April 2008 Monthly announcments Thank Yous and dates

April  08


May will be my 20th anniversary of being on the road.  Wow! 20 years.

13 CDs
10 tapes
10 music videos
and a half dozen books.

Sounds like a lot?  HA – how about 8 or so years of doing this news letter once a month too!  

To commemorate the event I am releasing this summer a 20th Anniversary box set!  called Fifty from Twenty.

50 songs on 4 CDs and a DVD with the best of my finished videos.  

I am doing this myself – as always on a shoe string.  I am planning on charging 50 bucks for this handsome collection filled with photos from Kerrville, The Oregon Country Fair, School of the Americas Watch, and many more of my regular haunts.

I anticipate getting this back from the manufacturer  (me!) by June 1.  If you would like to be the first on your block to display such a prestigious memento drop me a line and we will get you hooked up.

Buy an advance copy by emailing me – we can do it on line or I will give you a snail mail if you prefer


I can not tell you how much a simple $100 donation would help me out.

Do that by the end of April and I will get you in the liner notes!

I am booking dates on the west coast for July through August with Paul Benoit music. If you or someone you know would like to present this show complete with videos in California, Oregon, Washington or British Columbia please let me know soon!

After that Paul and I are planning on a trip to Europe – so if you know any one that would like to present us there – Also please drop me a line.

I am starting to work a little more with myspace please drop by I have videos up there and have been posting this news letter. I have just changed the songs and am open to requests of songs to put up there for download.

Please check out my Myspace

Also, the site at You-Tube
I got real depressed with You – Tube after my video "Something's in the Air" got yanked after it was doing so well. I am just getting around to doing anything with the site. But please stop by and take a look.

I did put a copy of "Something's in the Air" at
I have also added a few videos up there or on the video tab at www.chrischandlerorg

Speaking of videos I am working on a few new projects. The New George Mann video has been posted this month. At a link to his site is


I am planning on working on a new Anne Feeney video soon.
Her husband Julie Leonardsson did a terrific job executing my concept for her latest CD "Dump the Bosses off Your Back."

If you would like to see some of the videos I have made for others please check out

If you are interested in having me work on a video for you please drop me a line.

The new play I am working on will be a multi-media show. I am most excited about working on it. All of the "scenery" will be made with video projection.
As always feel free to drop me a line.

THANK YOU for March of 2007

There was a couple of days there when there was not a SINGLE show on my calendar. Wowzers!
That kinda felt good! Not to worry I am just taking a break as I approach my 20th anniversary of performing practically 24/7/365

I would really like to pick up two maybe three shows between right now and May 9th in the DC/Balto/Richmond/Philly Region if you have any idea please drop me a line.

Other than that I am taking some much needed and well deserved time off!
