Atlantic Records recording group Straight No Chaser has announced plans for another epic U.S. concert tour, “The Open Bar Tour.” The tour is stopping in Cincinnati at the Taft Theatre.
“ONE SHOT” is further highlighted by a richly harmonized version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound” in which the hard-touring group expresses their deep yearning for the comforts of family life. In addition, the LP features alongside seven entertaining conversational interludes wherein the nine members of Straight No Chaser trace their unlikely rise from an undergraduate singing group at Indiana University to a beloved Atlantic Records act with a devoted international fanbase.
Though filmed at Indiana University in December 1998, Straight No Chaser’s version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” – interpolating Toto’s “Africa” – proved the hottest viral video of the 2007 holiday season, receiving more than 7 million views that December alone and now boasting close to 23 million views HERE.
Among those millions of viewers was Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman, who promptly signed the Indiana-based a cappella group to the label’s legendary roster. Taking off from the runaway success of “The 12 Days Of Christmas,” Straight No Chaser made their now classic debut with 2008’s “HOLIDAY SPIRITS,” followed in the next year by “CHRISTMAS CHEERS.” Both albums reached the top of the holiday charts at Amazon and the iTunes Store and are now certified gold by the RIAA. The extraordinary decade that followed has seen the group amass album sales in excess of 1.6 million in the U.S. alone, along with more than 100 million YouTube views thus far.
Last year saw the release of a very special 10th Anniversary Edition of “HOLIDAY SPIRITS” featuring two brand new bonus tracks, “That’s Why We Celebrate” and “The 12 Days Of Christmas: 2018 Remix (Live).” “HOLIDAY SPIRITS: 10TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION“ is available all music retailers and streaming services HERE.
