Atlantic Records recording group Straight No Chaser has announced plans for another epic U.S. concert tour, “The Open Bar Tour.” The Broward Center for the Performing Arts and AEG Presents bring the tour to the Au-Rene Theater at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday, November 16 at 8 p.m.
Straight No Chaser’s latest studio album, One Shot is available now at all streaming services Here as well as via the official Straight No Chaser store Here. The album sees SNC doing what they do best with distinctive takes on classic pop and soul favorites, including Ricky Martin’s “Livin La Vida Loca,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Go Your Own Way,” James Brown’s “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” and the LP’s first single, an energetic mash-up of Boyz II Men and Montell Jordan entitled “Motownphilly/This Is How We Do It.” The track is joined by an official lyric video, streaming now at the official SNC YouTube channel Here.
One Shot is further highlighted by a richly harmonized version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Homeward Bound” in which the hard-touring group expresses their deep yearning for the comforts of family life. In addition, the LP features alongside seven entertaining conversational interludes wherein the nine members of Straight No Chaser trace their unlikely rise from an undergraduate singing group at Indiana University to a beloved Atlantic Records act with a devoted international fanbase.
Though filmed at Indiana University in December 1998, Straight No Chaser’s version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” – interpolating Toto’s “Africa” – proved the hottest viral video of the 2007 holiday season, receiving more than 7 million views that December alone and now boasting close to 23 million views Here. Among those millions of viewers was Atlantic Records Chairman/CEO Craig Kallman, who promptly signed the Indiana-based a cappella group to the label’s legendary roster.
