Straight No Chaser

12 year ago, a group of undergrads at Indiana University formed an a capella group. They called themselves Straight No Chaser.

They performed…

…. had fun….

and graduated. Not much action since then, aside from the occasional wedding / college reunion. Until 2008 when the viral popularity of a video clip posted on youtube resulted in a record deal with Atlantic records.

 

On Oct 28, Holiday Spirits will be available at a record bar near you. The album is a collection of 12 Christmas classics (and two original holiday tunes), including a live version of “The 12 Days of Christmas”, the song which started them on this new path.

It’s kitschy, it’s funny, it’s great. Straight No Chaser. Just the way I like it

  1. Like you, I feel compelled to put the word out about Straight No Chaser. I am so inspired by their story and what they are doing.

    I know I’ll be buying their Christmas album!
