As Chez Stadium, Randall Payton performs both solo and with an evolving cast of musicians. Shuffling his genre-fluid catalog, listeners will stumble through songs that range from winsome Westerbergian ballads to dark Dylanic meanderings, from caustic Costellovian canticles to Pollardesque pummelings.
Payton formed "the band" in 1999. He and his various bands have since shared the stage with Clem Snide, Centro-matic, Motorgoat (Quasi), Hazel, The Long Winters, David Dondero, and actor/director John Cameron Mitchell, among others.
In 2003, Payton released Chez Stadium's debut CD, "Freshman Slump," with 44 Long's Brian Berg behind the console.
