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 straight- laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. Originally formed a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and reemerged after their video for the 12 Days of Christmas became a phenomenon with almost 8 million views on You Tube. 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.
