A Capella sensation Straight No Chaser returns to Grand Sierra Resort
For Immediate Release Monday, May 15, 2017
Reno, Nev. – Grand Sierra Resort and Casino (GSR) is excited to welcome Straight No Chaser on Friday, Dec. 29 to the Grand Theatre. The Atlantic Records recording group has announced details of their new EP “Six Pack: Volume 3” which arrives on Friday, July 21. “Six Pack: Volume 3” sees the world famous a cappella group cracking open several contemporary pop hits and rock classics, highlighted by “Sweet Dreams/HandClap” – their one-of-a-kind mash-up of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” and Fitz and the Tantrums’ “HandClap” – as well their show-stopping “Beyoncé Medley.”
Straight No Chaser is celebrating their new EP by debuting a major U.S. tour. “The Speakeasy Tour” beginning October 28 at Providence, RI’s Performing Arts Centre will continue through the year, culminating with a much-anticipated visit to Hawaii, set for January 2 at Honolulu’s Blaisdell Hall. In the meantime, Straight No Chaser is set to join forces with Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox for an eagerly awaited summer co-headline tour. Produced exclusively by Live Nation, the 25-city U.S. trek kicks off July 13 at Chicago, IL’s Huntington Beach Pavilion at Northerly Island and then travels through the summer. The tour officially concludes with a very special show at Denver, CO’s world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, set for October 4th.
“Six Pack: Volume 3” follows 2016’s “I’ll Have Another…Christmas Album,” the world famous a cappella group’s sixth full-length release and first full-length holiday release in seven years. Widely beloved for their trademark takes on Yuletide favorites, Straight No Chaser made their now classic debut with 2008’s “Holiday Spirits,” followed in the next year by “Christmas Cheers.” Both albums reached the top of the holiday charts at Amazon and the iTunes Store and are now certified gold by the RIAA. Like the preceding “Six Pack” and “Six Pack: Volume 2,” the new EP continues Straight No Chaser’s long history of bringing their unique touch and inimitable vocal style to a stunning range of contemporary standards. Their most recent non-holiday release, 2015’s “The Old Fashioned,” saw the renowned group putting their matchless touch upon songs spanning The Weeknd and Radiohead to Bob Dylan and Atlantic labelmate Charlie Puth. Tickets starts at $35 and go on sale Friday, May 19 at www.grandsierraresort.com or by calling 1-800-648-3568.
