Straight No Chaser (SNC) is the name of two related but separate a cappella men’s singing groups. The Indiana University amateur college group now known as “Indiana University’s Straight No Chaser” is composed of 10 to 12 undergraduate men whose lineup changes every year. The professional group, known simply as Straight No Chaser, is composed of former members, mostly original members, of the college group. In 2006, a 1998 video of “The 12 Days of Christmas,” went viral and subsequently led to a five-album record deal with Atlantic Records in 2008. The YouTube video has been viewed by more than 11 million people, including the chairman and president of Atlantic Records, Craig Kallman, who arranged the five-album recording deal.
Original group reunites
In April 2006, a 1998 recording of “The 12 Days of Christmas” was posted to YouTube. The video was an adaptation of Richard C. Gregory’s 1967 comic arrangement of the song for his Williston Caterwaulers, but SNC added their own touches, including songs like “I Have a Little Dreidel” and Toto’s “Africa”. It has received more than 11 million views. After viewing the video himself, Craig Kallman, CEO of Atlantic Records, called Randy Stine, who posted the video, and asked if the group would consider reuniting to record a new album.
