About the Event
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) are neither Strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fanbase, numerous national TV appearances and proven success with CD releases. The New Old Fashioned Tour comes to Morgantown on the heels of the release of their new album “The New Old Fashioned” (available October 2015), their fifth album release through Atlantic Records. The album features an eclectic array of songs that explore multiple influential musical eras highlighted by signature and singularly unique medleys. 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. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.
