Straight No Chaser to perform at Phillips Center May 13
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A special Motherâ€™s Day performance by Straight No Chaser will be held at 2 p.m. May 13 at the Phillips Center for Performing Arts.
Lauded for its unforgettable live performances, the 10-member male a cappella groupâ€™s
most recent album “Six Pack: Vol. 2″ has the ensemble put its inimitable touch on a selection of modern pop classics, including Weezerâ€™s â€śBuddy Holly,â€ť Madonnaâ€™s â€śLike A Prayerâ€ť and â€śGet Ready,â€ť written by Smokey Robinson and made famous by The Temptations.
Straight No Chaser recently performed at the 85th Annual Macyâ€™s Thanksgiving Day Parade and was featured on the â€śGeneration YouTubeâ€ť episode of ABCâ€™s â€ś20/20.â€ť
Formed more than a dozen years ago while students at Indiana University, the group has regrouped to great acclaim, garnering more than 35 million YouTube views to date. Straight No Chaserâ€™s 2008 debut â€śHoliday Spiritsâ€ť hit No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Holiday Albums chart and reached the top of Amazon and iTunesâ€™ sales charts.
In an era where digital processing and vocal pro-tooling has become the norm, Straight No Chaser relies on 10 unadulterated human voices coming together to make music that is moving people in a fundamental sense â€¦ with a sense of humor.
