State Theatre, AEG Live, and AM Productions present the a cappella group, Straight No Chaser for one night only. The concert will include songs from Straight No Chaser’s Christmas albums as well as songs from their latest album, With A Twist.

Current members of Straight No Chaser include Ryan Ahlwardt, Walter Chaser, Jerome Collins, Seggie Isho, Michael Luginbill, Charlie Mechling, Don Nottingham, Randy Stine, Tyler Trepp and Dave Roberts.

For this one-night only appearance, Straight No Chaser will be performing songs from their two Christmas albums—including “12 Days of Christmas” the song that made them a YouTube sensation—as well as their a cappella renditions of hits such as Soft Cell's “Tainted Love,” Queen’s “Your My Best Friend,” Coldplay’s “Fix You,” Red Hot Chili Peppers' “Under the Bridge,” and a fusion of Jason Mraz's “I'm Yours” and Israel Kamakawiwoole's treatment of The Wizard of Oz classic “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Straight No Chaser was originally formed on the college campus of Indiana University in 1996. A group of friends with a passion for singing decided to create the group as an outlet for enjoying and sharing their musical hobby with the campus and community. Little did they realize that their college a cappella group would become a national sensation years later.
