PITTSBURGH - Straight No Chaser, which is comprised of 10 a cappella vocalists whose performances include singing and humor, will perform at 8 p.m. Dec. 13 at the Benedum Center.

Originally formed more than a dozen years ago at Indiana University, Straight No Chaser has reassembled and re-emerged with a fan base, millions of views on YouTube, numerous national TV appearances and three holiday releases - "Holiday Spirits," "Christmas Cheers" and "All I Want for Christmas." Prior to "Christmas Cheers," SNC released "Six Pack," a six-track album exclusive with Amazon. "With a Twist" is the group's first full-length departure from holiday music, which placed No. 29 on the Billboard 200. During the summer, Straight No Chaser performed an exclusive engagement for eight weeks at Harrah's Resort in Atlantic City.

"We can't wait to get back out on the road and visit our fans all across the country," said Stine. "The foundation of Straight No Chaser is our live performance. We pride ourselves on a show that anyone of any age or background can enjoy. This time around, we will be performing new songs on a new stage. It's the biggest production we've ever put together, and we are so excited to share it with our fans, since they are the ones who got us here."
