On December 31, 2007, the 10 members of Straight No Chaser were just ordinary guys living their lives in cities all over the world. Then on January 1, 2008, all of that changed because of a video of ‘The 12 Days of Christmas’ that was filmed in 1998 and went ‘viral’ on Youtube that holiday season. The former Indiana University a cappella group was asked to come back together and record a Christmas album for Atlantic Records. The album appropriately titled ‘Holiday Spirits’ went on to become a media sensation all throughout the holiday season.
After a whirlwind of success and development during the 2008 holiday season, Straight No Chaser is currently back in the studio recording their second holiday album titled ‘Christmas Cheers’ including original music such as ” The Christmas Can Can’. Sticking to the formula that made them both a novelty and a sensation, “Christmas Cheers” is a collection of both new and classic holiday songs with smooth harmonies and a comedic twist. With the holiday coming up fast, it’s time to bring on the cheer and get ready for another round of Straight No Chaser!
