Straight No Chaser

Last night was Mother-Daughter bonding, which means Ariel and I do something fun together. We went to a Straight No Chaser concert. They are a 10 men a’capella group who puts their own “spin” on everything from rock to R&B to Bugs Bunny music.

Anyway, it’s not just the music, which is pitch perfect, it’s their twist. They mixed a Sinatra tune with Jay-Z. And in the midst of their singing, they tease the audience. For example, you haven’t laughed until you’ve seen 10 grown men imitate Lady Gaga. Even if, like me, you have only a cursory knowledge of LG, it was still hilarious.

Ariel loved it too. Her only negative comment was “They dance just like Dad.” So there you have it.

They’re on a 75 city tour. If they’re anywhere near you, get thee to a concert. Enjoy the clip--It's "The Lion Sleeps Tonight." (Yes, not hip.  But it's always been my favorite song.)


  1. Awesome!! I love "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", doesn't everybody?! Love the extra stuff they throw in. So fun.

  2. Glad you enjoyed it!
