First State Bank of Belmond, Dean Genth & Dr. Gary Swenson, and the Arts Midwest Touring Fund proudly present Straight No Chaser – The Speakeasy Tour at the North Iowa Community Auditorium on the NIACC campus at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 27th, 2017. This presentation is part of the 2017-2018 Performing Arts and Leadership Series for the 20th Anniversary Season.
Atlantic Records recording group Straight No Chaser released their new EP “Six Pack: Volume 3” in July of 2017. “Six Pack: Volume 3” sees the world famous a cappella group cracking open a number of contemporary pop hits and rock classics, highlighted by “Sweet Dreams/HandClap” – their one-of-a-kind mash-up of Eurythmics’, “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)”, and Fitz and the Tantrums’ “HandClap” – as well their show-stopping “Beyoncé Medley”.
In the summer of 2017, Straight No Chaser joined forces with Scott Bradlee’s PostmodernJukebox for an eagerly awaited co-headline tour.
“Six Pack: Volume 3” follows 2016’s “I’ll have another…Christmas Album,” the world famous a cappella group’s sixth full-length release and first full-length holiday release in seven years. Widely beloved for their trademark takes on Yuletide favorites,
Straight No Chaser made their now classic debut with 2008’s “Holiday Spirits,” followed in the next year by “Christmas Cheers.” Both albums reached the top of the holiday charts at Amazon and the iTunes Store and are now certified gold by the RIAA. Like the preceding “Six Pack” and “Six Pack: Volume 2,” the new EP continues Straight No Chaser’s long history of bringing their unique touch and inimitable vocal style to a stunning range of contemporary standards. Their most recent non-holiday release, 2015’s “The New Old Fashioned,” saw the renowned group putting their matchless touch upon songs spanning The Weeknd and Radiohead to Bob Dylan and Atlantic labelmate Charlie Puth.
