Straight No Chaser is an all-male a cappella band formed in 1996 at Indiana University. As a local a cappella group, the band has established a solid local fanbase all over the campus through various local performances, including a storied early-morning appearance at the university's annual 36-hour dance marathon. The group's national recognition started when their 1998 performance of "The 12 Days of Christmas" went viral in 2006 after the original member Randy Stine uploaded it to YouTube. The video was seen by Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO, who was amazed by the group's harmony and chemistry. They were offered a recording deal. Thus, a rebirth of Straight No Chaser took place.
The group was an instant hit with audiences all over the country, and they were able to record their first album in 2008, entitled "Holiday Spirits." The album topped the charts and peaked at #46 on the US Billboard 200. The commercial and critical success of the album signaled the start of Straight No Chaser's domination in the genre. Fifteen years and seven more albums later, the group has toured all over the country and was able to sell a total of 2 million concert tickets throughout their career. The group boasts 2 RIAA Gold Certified albums and more than a billion streams.
"We're excited to announce our fall tour, The 25th Anniversary Celebration to celebrate 25 years of SNC. Expect some surprises!" Expressed the band on their Twitter account with excitement.
