Sometimes you just need to relax,
kick back with a few friends and neighbors
hear the music
feel what's real
Welcome to Live & Upstairs at the Chandler
No need to stand on ceremony
Stop by, sit back, and enjoy
casual, live music in the Upper Gallery
Usually on Friday nights (but check the schedule)
These shows are "By Donation" so feel free to stop in and check them out.
Most shows are BYOB unless we've convinced a local brewer to come over and pour. Brewer nights will be noted on the schedule below. So if you don't see one listed feel free to bring your own.

Feb. 1, at 7:30 Live&Up! Louise Bichan and Ethan Setiawan
Orkney (Scotland) born fiddler Louise Bichan and Indiana (USA) mandolinist Ethan Setiawan join forces to explore fiddle traditions from Scotland to Appalachia, via Scandinavia and Canada. New compositions, informed by these traditions and by the wealth of inspiration their current home of Boston (USA) has to offer, blend together with age old tunes.
