Straight No Chaser
Get tickets to see SNC
when they come to Roanoke's Berglund Center in November!!!
Back by popular demand: join us for another round with the a cappella phenomenon Straight No Chaser! 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) is neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. As original member Randy Stine comments, "We take the music very seriously; we just don't take ourselves too seriously." In the process, they are reinventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape.
