Have you heard of the all male singing group Straight No Chaser (SNC)? Well neither had No Excuses until only recently. Call me old fashioned, but if the phrase “male a Capella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers and ties, while singing traditional college songs … you can think again.
Firstly, what exactly is singing a cappella?
Well, although a cappella is technically defined as singing without any instrumental accompaniment, some groups use their voices to mimic instruments; others are more traditional and focus on harmonising. A cappella styles range from gospel music to contemporary to barbershop quartets and choruses.
And as for Straight No Chaser (SNC) they are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced apparently, and as their original member Randy Stine comments, “We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.”
Of course, No Excuses hasn’t seen them yet, but will be next month when they embark on their The New Old Fashioned first ever Australian Tour.
Of course the above write up may seem a bit of a brag, however guess what, No Excuses is giving away two free tickets to attend one their performances at one of the above locations (and if you are lucky enough to win tickets to the Melbourne venue, you may possibly get to meet No Excuses in person too) so if this doesn’t excite you about this post, then nothing will 😉
So all you need to do to enter is comment below and tell us the following:
Why should YOU win these two tickets?
I want to hear a genuine answer, something that will make me nod my head, perhaps laugh or otherwise entertains. No Straight answers, or I will just Chase you away!!!
Of course if I had to answer my own question, I would say the following: “I’d love to win tickets to see SNC, due to the fact that it also stands for See No Children with us, So Not Concerned that I have left the kids home with our sitter, Stay Night
in City too (if I can convince hubby)” 😉 🙂
