Straight No Chaser!


Giveaway Closed - Congratulations to Tracey!
This is a wonderful group of guys - I'd love to be able to tell you all of their names but that would be virtually impossible. My memory failed me two minutes after meeting all of them but what stood out for me was their kind and generous nature. The fellows in the picture above are Straight No Chaser, an acapella group that is touring the U.S. right now. They were "discovered" on YouTube and have been a sensation ever since.
They have two CD's that are Christmas music, the most recent one is titled Christmas Cheers and I love it.
Their sparkling personalities are evident in the music and seeing them perform live is an experience that I think everyone should have. The show is appropriate for all ages and it was so nice seeing families of all ages together enjoying the music.
We practically swooned when the group sang for us, having a handsome group of men serenade you is always special - ha, like that always happens! That is the first and likely the last time that will happen to me but I cherished the experience. I especially appreciated that they dedicated a song to Anissa (she'd had her stroke the day before and actually was supposed to attend) and several of them told me she is in their prayers.
I actually have video and unfortunately have been having problems uploading it - hopefully my computer issues will be resolved soon so I can give Anissa this special gift. In the meantime I am posting their original YouTube clip from 1998 that started it all for the group. They are so entertaining.
For a complete listing of their upcoming shows visit their website - SNCmusic.com. While there you can learn all about the group, read their blog and enjoy more of their music. In addition, you can check to see when their PBS special is showing in your area.

To help you celebrate the holiday season I have a copy of their latest CD to giveaway!
All you have to do is visit their website, come back here and tell me the name of one of their songs - other than the 12 Days of Christmas!
Extra Entry tweet: Win @sncmusic CD on Cutie Booty Cakes blog http://bit.ly/7lZRiC! And leave a comment letting me know.
Good Luck!

This contest will end on Monday, December 14th at noon. Open to US and Canada residents only. Winner will be contacted by email, please be sure to leave an email address if you are not registered on blogger.

Another song is The Christmas Can-Can. I enjoy this group as my two boys have both been in a capella groups while in college - it is TERRIFIC to see such great talent!

Another song they do is Africa. I also love "I'm Your/Over the Rainbow." I was so excited to see this giveaway. I just heard about this group last Friday. They were in town for a performance and the local radio station played "The Twelve Days of Christmas." I looked them up on the internet and then proceeded to spend the entire evening watching their videos on youtube. I only wish I would have gotten to see them in concert! I love a good a'capella men's group. Add in some humor and I am in heaven! Thanks for the chance to win.

I am so not a Christmas music fan...outside of The Jackson 5 Christmas album, I could really do with out it (insert bah-humbug here) But that video and their extra special version of 12 Days of Christmas was AWESOME!
