About Straight No Chaser
Upon the release of “HOLIDAY SPIRITS” in 2008, The New York Times predicted” this may be the year’s most unlikely major label story.” Now, ten years later with six full length albums and four EPs under their belt, the group will hit the road to celebrate and invite fans to join them on the “One Shot Tour.”
If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again. Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fan base, numerous national TV appearances, and proven success with CD releases. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of nine unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.
Straight No Chaser is currently working on new music, with more details to come over the next few months. In the meantime, the world famous a cappella group will hit the road this summer to bring “An Evening with Straight No Chaser” to select cities with dates throughout July. The summer run follows the group’s recently wrapped “The Speakeasy Tour” in support of last summer’s “Six Pack: Volume 3” EP that saw Straight No Chaser crack open a number of contemporary pop hits and rock classics, highlighted by “Sweet Dreams/HandClap” – their one-of-a-kind mash-up of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” and Fitz and the Tantrums’ “HandClap” – as well their show-stopping “Beyoncé Medley.”
Come out to the Taft Theatre on December 20 for Straight No Chaser’s One Shot Tour!
