Music By The Lake Presents Straight No Chaser on Sunday, July 25 at 4pm.
This all-male vocal phenomenon is an unforgettable live act that reinvents the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape, making extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental way . . . and with a sense of humor. They do so with nothing more than microphones in hand, grins ear-to-ear, witty banter on point, and an uncanny ability to belt out holiday staples, R&B smooth jams, and stadium anthems carried by style, swagger, and spirit. For as much as the story of the group belongs to those nine fellas on stage, it also belongs to a devoted community of millions worldwide affectionately dubbed “Chasers,” who cemented the a cappella collective’s status as an international phenomenon. Their 2016 appearance was the third largest Music by the Lake concert in recent years.
Originally formed over 20 years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group reassembled and reemerged as a phenomenon with album sales of 1.6 million in the U.S. alone, ticket sales of 1 million worldwide, 100 million-plus YouTube views, 100 million streams, dozens of major television performances, three PBS specials, collaborations alongside everyone from Sir Paul McCartney and Sir Elton John to Stevie Wonder and Kristen Bell, and a pair of gold-certified albums, Holiday Spirits and Christmas Cheers
