Hello Chasers - we have some bittersweet news to let you all know about. Straight No Chaser’s founding member, Dan Ponce, has recently accepted an offer to return to Chicago and become a general assignment reporter on WGN Channel 9. As you may remember, Dan spent 3 years as a reporter on ABC7 in Chicago and left the post last year to head out on to the road with Straight No Chaser full time. However, with this new offer and his upcoming marriage, Dan has decided to head back home and settle down once again. Dan has been a major contributor to Straight No Chaser’s success over the past few years and we will miss him dearly. But we are happy that we will retain his friendship and support as Straight No Chaser continues.
Dan elaborates "It has been incredible recording and touring the country with 9 amazing friends and musicians. I'm very sad to be leaving, but very happy knowing the group will continue strong without me."
We will be sending Dan off in style as he finishes off the residency at Harrah’s in Atlantic City this summer with the rest of Straight No Chaser. Please join us in wishing Dan the best of luck in his new endeavor, and we can't wait to see you all on our upcoming Fall Tour!
