Raise A Festive Drink For Straight No Chaser

Straight No Chaser are an acappella group whose speciality is in the production of festive treats for the holiday season. The band's popularity skyrocketed after their version of 'The 12 Days of Christmas' became a viral hit on youtube in 2006, a full decade after the band had formed at Indiana University in 1996. Their debut album followed soon afterwards and 2008's 'Holiday Spirits' lived up to its billing with 14 tracks imbued with a heartfelt love of the season. The album featured a roll call of Christmas standards performed with innovative vocal harmonies than more than made up for the lack of instrumentation. You might not even notice that there is no music present such are the acappella skills on show.

With 10 members in the band the Straight No Chaser's sound is full, warm and intricately built. Apart from the album's two original's 'Indiana Christmas' and 'Christmas Wish', both written by leadman Dan Ponce, Straight No Chaser stuck with tried and trusted material like 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town', 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' and 'Carol of The Bells'. The band took the unusual step of including a live recording rather than a studio recording of 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' but once you have heard it you'll understand their decision such is the good humour and energy of the piece.

Following the success and critical adulation of their debut Christmas album Straight No Chaser wasted little time in recording the follow up with 'Christmas Cheers' arriving in 2009. The album broke the Billboard Top 40 album chart which given the slightly more obscure track listing was an achievement in itself. Again Straight No Chaser gave it Christmas socks with a marathon 15 tracks with plenty of humour to be found in tracks such as 'Dónde Está Santa Claus', 'Who Spiked the Eggnog?' and 'The Christmas Can-Can'. They also gave their fans a studio recording of their biggest festive moment 'The 12 Days of Christmas' which included plenty of nods to other festive perennials as well a hugely odd but riotous section where they break into 80’s band Toto’s big hit 'Africa'! The lads also upturned expectation by adopting the air of 'Mission Impossible' for their reworking of 'We Three Kings'.

With two Christmas albums in the bag 2010's 'All I Want for Christmas' amounted to an unforgettable collection. Containing Straight No Chaser's festive releases to date it also packed a 3rd disc in the shape of live DVD recorded that the band recorded in New York and featuring their most cherished yuletide renditions including the always lively 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer' and 'Jingle Bells'.

Straight No Chaser's again turned to the season in 2013 when the Christmas edition of their 'Under the Influence' album of earlier that year came out in time for the yuletide celebrations. 'Under the Influence: Holiday Edition' included a delectable version of Paul McCartney's 'Wonderful Christmastime' and the ex-Beatle was even coaxed to climb abroad for the new rendition. For guest appearances alone this release must rank as Straight No Chaser's best holiday effort with the likes of Cee Lo Green singing merrily along to a bubbly ‘White Christmas’ and the boys harmonising beside a soulful vocal from Otis Reading on ‘Merry Christmas Baby’. It was an all-star collection but on happy-clappy tracks such as ‘Nutcracker’ and ‘Song For Santa’ Straight No Chaser gloriously had the floor all to themselves.
