A cappella group Straight No Chaser sings at F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre on Sept. 16
From a press release:
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 is neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch.
They have emerged as a phenomenon with a massive fan base and a long list of accomplishments, including two RIAA-certified gold albums, over 1.5 million concert tickets sold, over one billion streams on Pandora, and over two million albums sold worldwide. Straight No Chaser is the real deal, the captivating sound of nine unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense – and with a sense of humor.
This will be the group’s third visit to the Kirby Center (71 Public Square, Wilkes-Barre), having last played there in 2016.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, which are $39.50, $49.50, and $65, plus applicable fees, go on sale this Friday, June 25 at 10 a.m.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, tickets are only available online at kirbycenter.org, ticketmaster.com, and by phone at 570-826-1100. A Kirby Member pre-sale begins on Thursday, June 24 at 10 a.m. Members can call 570-826-1100 to purchase tickets.
