I just figured that since we all enjoy acapella so much, I'd mention the Harmony Sweepstakes competition. The regional competitions should be starting up soon (I know the Los Angeles competition is in early April), so if you're interested, you should be able to check out some of the talented...

Does anybody know where SNC gets their song arrangements? I know they arrange a lot of them themselves...

I think Sony is trying to catch up with Atlantic records. You've started a firestorm. "Sing Off" is just fostering the love of a capella music. Look what you've all started!!!!

Hey guys, If you have any idea through which ,I will back my entertaining days, life is boring and tried many thing for fun like that showing the password my neighbours by the help of http://hack-wifi.net/ , Please suggest me more websites through which I will relive my moments again.I also bored seeing the movie and playing the games.
All the Best,
My first born grandson passed away shortly after birth six months ago....this past Sunday I heard Indiana Christmas (Straight No Chaser) for the very first time on Pandora. We currently live in KY and our dear Joshua was buried in IN. We are moving to AZ Dec 30th so this song really hit home and has such a special meaning. My beloved husband bought us tickets to your show in Evansville this week. I just wanted to add my name to the never-ending list of people whom your music has such and emotional impact. Thank you for something so beautiful.....it is truly a comfort.
All the Best,
Mary Lou Smyth was kind enough to copy down the questions and answers from the Periscope edition of TAT that Seggie hosted with other members of the group on December 1st. Here is part 1 of a 3 part Periscope Tell-Al-Tuesday!
TAT on Periscope 1 December 2015
Who sings the bass line on “All about the Bass” while Randy & Charley sing the lead? Don
When will you be back in the UK? March, announcement coming up
More of Europe after Paris (Feb and March)
Jerome’s favorite color? – Black mixed with blue (“Blue is favorite, black is where it’s at.”)
Jerome - When is the baby due – any day now
Jerome - Ready for fatherhood? – You never can prepare, hope to be good
Jerome, favorite food at home? – Mama’s Fried chicken, caramel cake
Plans for Tyler’s birthday? Doing a show!
When are you coming back for a Canada Tour – Canada didn’t show SNC a lotta love (plus, it’s COLD there) (Jerome wants to do the Montreal Jazz Festival)
Where are you right now? Providence
How many sleep on the bus? – Seggie’s bus: 5 SNC & 2 crew, Other bus: 5 SNC & 3 crew
Will you be doing Can’t Feel My Face this week? – Probably not this tour
What do you miss most? My wife
Have you seen Trumbo? – I have not seen Trumbo yet. Saw Creed, Spotlight, new Hunger Games yesterday (Hunger Games was all right)
Will you be doing Shut Up and Dance? – yes!
Is it hard to sleep on the bus? For some guys (Jerome), not Seggie; it’s like a mini-coffin
How many songs do you have ready to sing at any given moment? 40 – 50 songs in our back pocket, depending on who’s available to sing
What does Jerome of Kobe retiring? He thinks it’s time for Kobe to retire; he’s glad!
If you could duet with anyone, who would it be? Adele (Seggie)
What is the reason for different blocking, staging? Is it height? Voice part? Voice part placement only really matters for off-mic. Jill places the guys, and they do different things to make it entertaining/interesting.
What do you miss most during the holidays? Getting to do the holidays, sitting by a fire with loved ones, everything leading up to it, shopping in stores (versus online), decorating house, having friends over
Favorite song right now? Creep
When are you coming out with Straight No Dancer wear? Uh, probably never
Just started Judd Apatow book, but into a lot of TV shows right now
Will Uptown Funk/Thriller be on next album? No, not approved by the guy who wrote Thriller
Bus is not decorated yet.
Top 5 fav TV shows? – Homeland, Fargo, Shark Tank, the Knick? The Prophet; Getting Amazon Prime so he can watch The Man in the High Castle; Not seen Jessica Jones. Top five is tough.
Not up on Jamie Lawson
Not too bad on stage with house lights going up and down. There’s always some blue light on stage that the audience can’t see which helps them not to trip, etc.
Will there be a video from the Yahoo show? They would like to make a video from Yahoo footage – we’ll work on that!
Favorite thing to do on tour on down time? Watch movies (or shopping mall, for instance, in Providence)
Will the show this week be the same show that they did on Yahoo – Most likely (still working out the kinks on holiday portion, what’s working, etc.)
Fav Christmas song to sing – O Holy Night off-mic
Can you see audience reaction or is it too dark? – We can see audience reaction for first 25 rows or so.
What do you do when someone gets sick on tour? When someone’s sick you’ve gotta perform. Maybe swap off songs, so you don’t have to sing lead. The show must go on. Only a couple times someone just couldn’t, and so they went with 9 guys.
What’s the game plan for when Jerome is away? Hard to say, as we don’t know when, but there will be a full show. Hoping baby Collins is born on a day off.
Will you be making any changes to Rocky (because of Creed)? - No immediate plans to change Rocky (maybe next year)
What do you do to keep voices in check? Sleep, water, daily workouts/exercise (so bodies can fight off viruses, bugs, etc)
Did Seggie get the Text Me Merry Christmas hamster from Lowe’s yet? - No, he didn’t, probably won’t but Chasers should (LOL)
Fav Christmas movie? – Home Alone or Elf
Is it a faux pas to get up and dance at the concert? – No, it’s not a faux pas. He wishes more people would. Get up and dance, if you feel like it; don’t worry about complainers!
Who does Seggie think will make the Super Bowl? Patriots and Panthers
Who’s winning Fantasy Football League? – Producer Steve Lunt in first place, then Seggie, Walt, Charlie
Why did everyone sing the leads on the MM video on Star Wars (instead of their own parts)? - I don’t know why everyone sang the solos in the video (kind of did that for each of them)
Mike lost FF this week and had to be the beer opener? - Mike had to be the bartender, last place in FF (lowest points has to do something from punishment list)
What special drinks did Mike make while bartender? Mike made a lot of Moscow Mules, Manhattan, had to make what people request, mostly poor choices in FF *boom*
Which countries apart from UK gave most love earlier this year? Dublin was insane & Paris was awesome (which is why they’re going back) Prague, Amsterdam, Vienna (MLS Note: Seggie does not distinguish between cities and countries)
How did Don end up as the females in the videos? He just did. It’s hilarious that way.
Do you ever get nervous before a show? Some more anxious than nervous (despite what Tyler tweeted before the Yahoo show). Seggie – no
How were your seats at Red Wings? – Cousin and brother have season tickets. Cousin has good seats (center ice, ~40 rows back, second level).
No other guys on the bus, at lunch. Sound check at 4. No, they are not bringing lunch back for Seggie. (MLS Note: boo, hiss, other guys)
Feel like I’m cheating on SNC with Pentatonix. No, Chasers are allowed to listen to other a cappella groups.
Holiday traditions on tour? Their bus decorates and does Secret Santa. Other bus – not sure, doesn’t think they do anything
Fav holiday tradition with family – clichés: going to mass, coming home after mass one gift gets opened on Christmas eve, the rest on Christmas day.
Does Jamie watch Downton Abbey? He doesn’t think so.
Traditions on the road – finding a gym every day
Do they hang out with Chasers on a day off? Not usually
Is Seggie excited about the new Star Wars movie? Seggie is not into Star Wars (hasn’t seen the others), so he probably won’t see the new one.
Where did they work out in Tampa? He thinks they worked out at a college gym
Are gym passes in their contract? No temp passes to gym in contract; Korby usually sweet talks a receptionist at a YMCA or whatever and swaps tickets or they pay ~$5 for a day pass.
Any plans to come back to Wichita soon? Not coming to Wichita on this tour, but probably next year.
Please put all their videos on a DVD (including music videos, opening videos, intermission video) – Great idea! Seggie doesn’t think they’d sell many. (“We’d sell 10s of those!” *sarcasm*)
Did Seggie arrange any of the current songs being done on stage? Not solely, helped (he’ll tweet)
How is it decided which venues you go to? Management and Agent works all that out.
Hopefully you can put Norfolk, Va Beach area on the tour next year? Yeah, that would be good!
Don and Charlie seem to be the runners in the group - got a fave fitness/workout activity? Charlie and Don are probably the two biggest runners in the group; Seggie runs about 40 minutes, then lifts with Steve. Charlie is training for a marathon (so crazy running schedule). Seggie likes having a training partner in Steve, who is in ridiculous shape. Keeps him focused and motivated and keeps him in check.
All the Best,
