Straight No Chaser invites U.S. audience to Speakeasy Tour
Straight No Chaser

A-cappella group Straight No Chaser has announced the fall dates for their Speakeasy Tour 2017, according to the SNC Facebook page. The Speakeasy Tour will bring contemporary pop a-cappella music to 41 cities across the U.S. during the fall of 2017. 

Straight No Chaser consists of a group of men who originally formed an a-cappella group while students at Indiana State University over 20 years ago, according to information on the SNC Music website. The members of the group went their separate ways after graduation but reunited to reform the group. They started performing together again in  1996 and have been singing ever since, even though the individual band members may have changed. 

The group goes beyond the stereotype of a singing group that sings contemporary cover songs by reinventing the idea of a-cappella in a modern pop format to appeal to a broad audience.They have produced several albums including Under the Influence, I'll Have Another, Songs of the Decades and All I Want for Christmas, according to the SNC Music website

The Speakeasy Tour will open at North Iowa Area Community College on Sept. 17 and will play 41 concerts including appearances in Columbus, Ohio, Kansas City, Mo., Wichita, Kan., Asheville, Tenn. and more. The final concert listed on the tour will be Blaisdell Hall in Honolulu, Hawaii on New Year's Day. Following are the dates and venues for the Straight No Chaser Speakeasy Tour. Additional dates will be announced at a future date.
