STRAIGHT NO CHASER 10TH ANNIVERSARY “ONE SHOT TOUR”

November 17 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$44.50 – $83.00

 

Lakeland, FL – 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) sets itself apart from other a cappella groups and is bringing its contemporary repertoire and dynamic approach to the RP Funding Center on Saturday, November 17th at 7:30 pm.

The upcoming tour coincides with the 10th Anniversary of Straight No Chaser signing with Atlantic Records and the release of their debut album, “HOLIDAY SPIRITS” after a video of the group performing “12 Days of Christmas” went viral on YouTube and became the most viewed video of 2007. 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.”

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 fanbase, more than 20 million views on YouTube, numerous national TV appearances, and proven success with two holiday releases, In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing and vocal pro-tooling, Straight No Chaser is the real deal – the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense… and with a sense of humor.

However even after all the success, the members of Straight No Chaser don’t take anything for granted: “To think that the ten of us could go our separate ways after college, start professional lives, and then commit to putting SNC back together after all these years is nothing short of a minor miracle,” said original member Charlie Mechling. “With each opportunity to perform that comes our way, we are reminded of how fortunate and blessed we are to be able to do what we love to do.”
