Straight No Chaser

For more than two decades, Straight No Chaser has provided the soundtrack of the season, bringing millions of fans to their feet while putting them in the holiday spirit. Year after year, fans anxiously await the moment they can officially hit play on Straight No Chaser favorites. And this year is no different.

Straight No Chaser is back on tour serving up an all-you-can-eat buffet of holiday music (with none of the calories). The nine-man act of Walter Chase, Jerome Collins, Seggie Isho, Michael Luginbill, Steve Morgan, Luke Bob Robinson, Jasper Smith, Tyler Trepp and Freedom Young has served as a festive blend of harmonious voices for more than two and a half decades, having recently celebrated their 25th anniversary.

The band has sold more than three million albums and 1.5 million tickets worldwide, earning 100 million+ YouTube views and racking up over one billion streams. Alongside their successful headlining tours, the group has had dozens of major television performances and collaborated with artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Elton John and Stevie Wonder. Their most recent album, Yacht on the Rocks, even included a collaboration with Toto’s David Paich. In addition, two of their eight LPs, Holiday Spirits and Christmas Cheers, have been RIAA-Certified Gold.

Straight No Chaser was originally formed at Indiana University in the mid-’90s. The group reunited and gained new momentum in 2006 when an original member uploaded their 1998 performance of “The 12 Days of Christmas” to YouTube to share some college nostalgia with friends. What happened next was a level of success that few people could have predicted, least of all, the nine members of Straight No Chaser.

For the next decade, audiences watched as the group put a cappella on the map – bursting on the scene before pop culture phenoms like The Sing Off and Pitch Perfect. Year after year, the group aims to keep fans entertained and inspired. There are no cookie-cutter shows here; each concert serves up a healthy dose of banter between the band members, flawless harmonies, and a blend of old and new music. Isn’t that what makes the holidays special – striking the perfect balance of old and new? This year, expect mega-successful holiday hits from the group’s previous releases, including Holiday Spirits (2008), Christmas Cheers (2009), Under the Influence: Holiday Edition (2013), I’ll Have Another…Christmas Album (2016), Social Christmasing (2020) and Stocking Stuffer (2023).
