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 are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. Originally formed over a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and reemerged as a phenomenon – with a massive fan base, more than 35 million views on YouTube and numerous national TV appearances. On the road, STRAIGHT NO CHASER has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act. STRAIGHT NO CHASER is the real deal – the captivating sound of 10 unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor.
