About Straight No Chaser
Straight No Chaser Tickets
Everybody who’s seen the Pitch Perfect movies knows that a cappella music is a serious business. They should also know that it can be a wonderful form of entertainment. Believe it or not, a cappella groups can keep performing after their college days are over. Few real-life groups have been able to prove that better than Straight No Chaser. While initially started as a college a cappella group at Indiana University, SNC also exists as a professional group that goes far beyond the Indiana campus. Naturally, only former Indiana students who were in the group during college are welcomed into the professional version of SNC. However, Straight No Chase is a legitimate act with a big-time record deal that continues to perform for any audience that approaches the magic of a cappella.
Just a Joke
In a way, SNC’s success almost started as a joke. In 1998, when the original members of Straight No Chaser were still in college, they did a comedic rendition of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Nearly a decade later, a video of that performance made its way onto YouTube and went viral. That led to a phone call from Atlantic Records about the group recording an album, and the rest is a cappella history. The group reunited nearly a decade after parting ways after graduation and has since recorded more than half a dozen albums and continued to bring their unique brand of music to audiences all over the world.
It’s in the nature of a cappella music to perform cover songs, but doing so without any instruments. Obviously, Straight No Chase has remained true to that. However, they’ve also been able to incorporate the original artist and some of the best musicians in the world into their songs. SNC has released songs that have featured the likes of Elton John, Paul McCartney, Seal, Rob Thomas, Sara Bareilles, Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Barry Manilow, and many others. They’ve also been keen to perform a lot of holiday songs, which is how they got their big break after all. But whether it’s the holiday season or not, Straight No Chase has proven itself to be one of the great a cappella groups to come out of any college and a great representative for the genre.
