SPONSOR: Media support provided by WFPK.Straight No Chaser returns after their huge 2009 performance to thrill you with some of the coolest, hottest a cappella ever. Their new release With a Twist includes covers of classics like Soft Cell's "Tainted Love," Queen's "You're My Best Friend," Coldplay's "Fix You" and the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge," with their unique blend of harmony and humor that has made SNC such a hit!
Originally formed a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and reemerged as a phenomenon - with a huge fan base, millions of viewers on YouTube and a contract with Atlantic Records. 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.
With a Twist marks Straight No Chaser's first full-length departure from holiday music. Christmas, however, has been good for SNC. The group's 2008 debut, Holiday Spirits, hit No. 4 on Billboard's Top Holiday Albums chart and spent two weeks in the No. 1 slot on Amazon and five days atop the iTunes sales chart. Its version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas," which incorporates Toto's "Africa," reached No. 5 on the Hot AC Tracks survey and was Top 10 on the Holiday Singles chart
