The Alternate Routes

Reflecting America's grit, determination, & passions in Rock & Roll edged songs.

The Alternate Routes’ name suits them well. They’re a band that‘s never really fit in - in a good way. Without a definitive genre to reference or an established scene to rally behind them, they’ve been something of a rogue wave in an ocean of bands. They built a fan base the old fashioned way, by driving around the country in a big, white Ford Econoline van, winning crowds over one-person-at-a-time with solid, catchy songs and an explosive live show.

VanRet

Coretta Sellars hails from the small town of Lunenburg, MA, contributing her neutral sound and passionate lyrics to the musical blends of Country, Blues, and Folk/Rock stylings. Having already recorded five albums between 1996 and present day, Sellars has created a prolific catalogue of songs that have become popular and personal amongst her fellow listeners and fan base. Sellars recently formed the duo VanRet with friend and musician Krista Van Guilder. The duo performs a wide range of cover songs, and originals as well.

Garnet Rogers

Garnet Rogers does a stunning one-man show. His powerful baritone and passionate work with a variety of instruments creatively meld old and new sounds, and his story songs are marked by wit, sensitivity and commitment to ordinary people living with extraordinary courage, sorrow, and joy in a large landscape. The Boston Globe calls Rogers "A brilliant songwriter, one of the major talents of our time," and Sing Out! dubs him "The greatest male interpreter and vocalist on the contemporary folk scene."

The Chandler Travis Three-o (Ballroom)

The Chandler Travis Three-o, like most things in life, started by mistake, as a result of Chandler having having a hard time finding rooms large enough to house his nine-piece Chandler Travis Philharmonic. In 2009 or so, a couple of small, friendly bars opened on Cape Cod (the first being the Harvest Wine Gallery in Dennis) that asked Chandler about doing something with just another person or two, which wasn’t at all the direction he’d been going in.
