Ten guys. No instruments. One unmistakable sound. A cappella powerhouse Straight No Chaser is bringing the holiday cheer to Hancher Auditorium. Since a video of the group’s quirky take on “The 12 Days of Christmas” went viral in 2006, Straight No Chaser has been in the studio and on the road bringing a cappella music to its ever-growing fan base. The guys in the group know just where to find the groove to put your family in a holiday mood.

REVIEW: Straight No Chaser serves up intoxicating blend of holiday spirits in Iowa City
The Gazette - Sunday, December 10, 2017
Straight No Chaser added a most welcome chaser to its Hancher mix Friday night. After an hour of silky smooth a cappella harmonies shaking up pop tunes and standards, the nine vocalists added nearly another hour of holiday favorites, turned upside down and inside out. Vocal mash-ups are the hallmark of this wildly popular ensemble. Formed in 1996, Straight No Chaser rose out of Indiana University obscurity into a YouTube viral sensation in 2007 with its hilarious take on “The Twelve Days of Christmas” — laced with Toto’s “Africa,” half a dozen carols and a little dreidel. That led to a record deal and launched a professional journey that has the group selling out concerts far and wide.
