A cappella group Straight No Chaser sings at Hershey Theatre on Dec. 4
From a press release:
Atlantic Records a cappella group Straight No Chaser has announced their “I’ll Have Another… World Tour,” which comes to the Hershey Theatre on Sunday, Dec. 4 at 2:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The North American leg celebrates the 20th anniversary of the group’s formation in 1996 and first show at Indiana University.
Tickets, which are $29.50, $47.50 and $57.50, plus fees, are available at the Hershey Theatre box office (15 E. Caracas Ave., Hershey), online at hersheyentertainment.com and ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 717-534-3405 and 800-745-3000.
The “I’ll Have Another… World Tour” follows Straight No Chaser’s most recent release, 2015’s “The New Old Fashioned.” The album sees the renowned group bringing their unique touch and inimitable vocal style to a stunning range of contemporary standards, spanning The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” and Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” to Radiohead’s “Creep” and Bob Dylan’s tender “Make You Feel My Love.”
“The New Old Fashioned” further features a number of Straight No Chaser’s incomparable medleys, including “Beggin’/Counting Stars” (blending favorites from Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons and One Republic) and “On the Road Again/I Play the Road” (originally by Willie Nelson and Zac Brown Band, respectively).
In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing and vocal pro-tooling, Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of 10 unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense – and with a sense of humor.
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.
Originally formed a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and reemerged as a phenomenon – with a huge fanbase, millions of viewers on YouTube, and a contract with Atlantic Records. On the road, Straight No Chaser has built a reputation as an unforgettable live act.
