Just for Fun

It is not often I am amazed. Or, as Johanna would say, gobsmacked! But the other night I was listening to the radio and heard a group called Straight No Chaser.

This is a group of 10 young men who got together at Indiana University in 1996 and were locally popular. In 2006, one of the original members posted a song they had done on YouTube. Within months Atlantic Records had signed them to a record deal.

As several years had gone by, several of these men had families and careers. Still, they did get together for a reunion and today 8 of the original 10 are still performing to sold out venues.

Take 3 minutes out of your life and listen to this 1998 performance. You will be glad you did.

If you want a REAL challenge, see how many of the songs you can identify!!

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh they're fun! I've never heard of them despite having spent a bit of time in Indiana in the late 90s. Thanks for sharing. :)

What fun! I have heard them before, but not doing The 12 Days of Christmas. They are very cleaver aren't they. Oh, and a bit of talent too!

That was absolutely wonderful...! I am going to see what else I can find by them. They look like they're really enjoying themselves too. :-)
