The group Straight No Chaser made their appearance on the music scene in 1996, and since then they have been entertaining audiences of all types with their impressive a cappella musical arrangements. The professional group first came together at Indiana University, where members began performing at local and campus-sponsored events. After a 1998 video of the group performing “The 12 Days of Christmas” went viral on YouTube, in 2006, the band shot to fame. The video was viewed millions of times and lead the band to re-form when they received a five-album record deal with Atlantic Record. The group is also credited to helping the recent mainstream boost in a cappella groups that has been seen today.
