      Having opened for Barry Manilow at the O2 Arena in London last week, US a cappella group Straight No Chaser have unveiled details of their first ever UK tour for the Autumn.

      If the phrase " US male a cappella group" conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on campusesĀ… think again. Straight No Chaser are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced. As original member Randy Stine comments, "We take the music very seriously; we just don't take ourselves too seriously." In the process, they are reinventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape.

      Originally formed over a dozen years ago while students together at Indiana University, the group has reassembled and re-emerged as a phenomenon - with a massive fanbase, more than 20 million views on YouTube and numerous TV appearances.

      In an era when so much pop music is the product of digital processing and vocal pro-tooling, Straight No Chaser is the real deal - the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental senseĀ… and with a sense of humor!

      Straight No Chaser have announced the following UK shows:

      Tues Sep 27th - York - Opera House
      Wed Sep 28th - Liverpool - Philharmonic Hall
      Thu Sep 29th - Edinburgh - Queens Hall
      Fri Sep 30th - Dumfries - DG One
      Sat Oct 1st - Gateshead - The Sage
      Mon Oct 3rd - Cardiff - St. David's Hall
      Wed Oct 5th - Fareham - Ferneham Hall
      Thu Oct 6th - Stevenage - Leisure Centre
      Fri Oct 7th - London - Union Chapel
      Sat Oct 8th - Bournemouth - Pavilion
