    Idea For Their Concert Set Started by Rich Bentel

    Admittedly I'm not always the first one to the party (came upon SNC a few years after they were signed by Atlantic). However I had this thought after my experience on YouTube last night.

    I came across Anna Kendrick doing the "cup song" on David Letterman. For those of... Category: SNC General Discussion Replies: 0

    My wife asked me what she could get me for Christmas.

    So right now she's surfing the 'net trying to find SNC action figures. :)

    Tell-All Tuesdays Started by Ryan

    Chasers, have you ever had a burning question about SNC?  You may want to get it checked out by a doctor first, but after that, join in the conversation with SNC Tell-All Tuesdays.  What's that?  Your interest is piqued?  Allow me to expand upon the topic at hand.  Shan't we?  (This is me...

    Today Show Started by Julie

    So, SNC will once again be on the Today Show, this time with Hoda and Kathy Lee.  We all know these two women have a reputation for having their "adult beverages" early in the day. With SNC on board, why do I have visions of Red Solo Cups dancing in my head? LOL. Very excited to see the... Category: SNC General Discussion Replies: 9 Last Reply: 4 years 3 months ago

    Reviewing the Joliet, IL concert Started by Rich Bentel

    There was no way the Joliet, Illinois Straight No Chaser concert at the Rialto Square Theatre could possibly be any good. Not a chance. I have been following these guys since a friend of mine told me three years ago about a group that did an interesting arrangement of The 12 Days of Christmas...

    Chaser Signal? Started by Rich Bentel

    What kind of signal can we create so that Chasers can identify each other?

    When I was in college, there was an A cappella group that played the Midwest called "Four Guys Standing Around Singing". Their fans were called Four Heads and the signal we had to identify ourselves to... Category: SNC General Discussion Replies: 5 Last Reply: 4 years 4 months ago

    Sing for the troops? Started by

    Several people in my unit love listening to you folks. We've been wondering if you'd be willing to come by Fort Polk, LA so we can enjoy your music in person.

    I am a happy, happy girl. Started by DinaK

    Went to Friday's show in Syracuse. Flew up there for the weekend and took my best friend for her birthday to the show. It was probably my 10th show. Got up enough courage and waited until the end for a group shot.

    Let's hope I get some formatting over here.

    Maggie Sherwin posted about voting for musical acts to be on SNL, and apparently today is the only day it can be done. I don't know much about it, but I'll post the link here.

    Cruise stories here, please! Started by S Brandon

    Those of us who couldn't make the cruise are dying to hear about it. Please post stories here when you land back home (and maybe after you get a little sleep). Skimmed the tweets posted on this site, as I don't do Twitter, and it sounds as if everyone had a great time. Now share...

    New songs debuted on the cruise Started by DinaK

    Have been jealously reading the discussions and the tweets and watching the videos about the cruise.

    Looks like there were four songs debuted at the 10/14 concert:

    I saw a program earlier today about IU's choir. Great show! I almost turned the channel at the end when they started doing the school song when all of a sudden, the scene changed from current IU choir members to past members, obviously including the guys!

  • I am just loving the final chord of "Somebody that I used to know" (recorded version) at the moment - it's an amazing example of their awesome arranging and performing talents!

    Just wondered if anyone else has a "favorite chord" they love to listen out for? Feel like sharing it? :)

    All the Best,

  • I just have to say “Thank You” to SNC for naming me Chaser of the Month (or COTM) for June 2013. This was a huge surprise and an even bigger honor. There are so many of us Chasers out there who do what we do to support you for the pure love of the music. You make it very easy to talk about why we love your sound and better yet, your being.

    Your music has brought a lot of fun times and fun people into my life that I may not have met otherwise. Memories that will last a lifetime. Heck, I never wanted to go on a cruise, but you got me on one and it was worth the nausea. Kidding. (Glad the “Summit” is on land though!) I was lucky to win tickets for your Bryant Park SouthwestPorch performance and what a special night that was for us lucky few who got to be there to experience and celebrate the release day with you.

    I wish you all the continued success of Under the Influence, the upcoming Summer of Influence tour (tickets available, go to Ticketmaster and get your tickets now), AC residency (promise not to get sick of seeing me there), the Chaser Summit in Las Vegas, and Fall Tour.

    Thanks to Walt, Mike, Steve, Rome, Tyler, Charlie, Randy, Seggie, Dave, and Don as well as Richard, Luke and David for always being gracious and receptive to all your fans.

    Your friend, Vicky aka @VickyVictoriaG

    All the Best,

  • So I'm driving around today with my stereo blasting "Under The Influence" about as loud as possible before popping the speakers. Why? C'mon, because UTI is an awesome album! And because I'm hoping that at the stoplights drivers of the surrounding cars will look over at me so I can hold up the CD cover and grin at them, not unlike someone holding the winning lottery ticket which would be a visual way of saying "My life is awesome, how's yours?" With the album cover, this would also be a subtle way of promoting our beloved while also trying to help mankind make their lives awesome, one person at a time.

    As the songs were coming at me one after the other, it hit me. Our boys need to have a Variety Show similar to Andy Williams, Bing Crosby and, yes, The Osmonds.

    Here's the vision. They would do a skit that involved all or some of them. Then Jason Mraz would come out on the set and sing "I Won't Give Up" with them. Then a commerical. Another skit and Sarah Bareilles comes out. She and the guys would do sort of a music video enactment of the song to add a little variety and playfulness. At the end, fade to black, and then come back with one of the guys introducing the next song featuring Stevie Wonder. Then commercial.

    Okay, you get the idea. They could squeeze all the guests into one three hour variety show or they could do two or three, sprinkling in the guests among skits and the songs they do on tour.

    Some of the skits could include the guys having Suguee races or playing horse. That worked out really well on their video montage to open last fall's concerts.

    All the Best,
    Rich Bentel

  • Are you kidding me? Our guys left their families, traveled across the country, warmed up, tweeted/facebooked their loyal followers to participate in that?

    I'm pretty far from being a prude, but what in the world does SNC have to do with talking about female body parts? The host talks to two female doctors and then throws in a "Oh yeah, big thanks to Straight No Chaser. Your album is coming out on the 7th? Everybody go get it."

    I'm mad I watched the show and I regret our guys had to be a part of it. It may have been worth it had they been given more than 12.5 total seconds to perform. Maybe if they had been asked about their new album. Surely WWHN could have found a few moments to talk to the guys and a few fewer moments to talk about a woman's nether region.

    This was an embarrassment. Whoever lined up this appearance should be suspended or fired.

    All the Best,
    Rich Bentel
