Live from the A-Team: Straight No Chaser!

Michael Alan Foster saw Straight No Chaser last week at the Long Center and had some good things to say about the show our friends over there put on.



Straight No Chaser!

Straight No Chaser (SNC) provided Austin patrons with a VERY enjoyable evening of all-time favorite songs! The show was filled with sophisticated harmonies and uniquely stylized arrangements. I had seen/heard them on YouTube– so I knew what to expect. I knew it would be a high energy, positive and uplifting show. However, my expectations were more than exceeded! You could really tell that the ten talented men love doing what they do AND both take it seriously AND don’t take themselves too seriously. What a truly winning combination!! The audience LOVED them. Their singing of a unique combination of “I’m Yours” with “Somewhere over the Rainbow” rings in my mind still. They sang an unexpected medley of Lady Gaga tunes and the audience responded with THUNDEROUS applause. They enthralled us with their record-breaking version of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” (Seen over 11 MILLION times on YouTube).The two 45 minute sets of songs passed by all too quickly for us. SNC received a well-earned standing ovation for their overwhelmingly wonderful show. They graced us with two encores–each of which earned thunderous standing ovations. The final song was sung without mikes to a auditorium of enraptured and delighted patrons. What an evening!! I am sure the house will be filled to overflowing when they return to Austin. Experience them when they do, and also now… buy a CD!
