He also performs as a rock singer at high-society private events in the NYC area, performing on over 600 gigs.
In 2008, Chandler performed with AJ Pero’s (TWISTED SISTER) band CITIES and was later offered a deal with Kivel Records out of NY singing on the new TALON record, a melodic rock band out of California.
