Straight No Chaser Announces "The Happy Hour Tour," a Massive 58 City, 66 Show Tour, Underway October 14th in Bakersfield, Culminating With New Year's Eve Extravaganza in San Diego

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - Atlantic Records recording group Straight No Chaser has announced a massive 58-city, 66-show tour, dubbed "The Happy Hour Tour." Tour gets underway October 14th at the Rabobank Theater in Bakersfield, California and then travels through to an eagerly anticipated New Year's Eve finale at San Diego's San Diego Civic Theatre on December 31st (see itinerary below). Fan Club tickets are available, and tickets will be available to the public this Friday, May 30 at 10:00am local. Full details -- including regularly updated ticket information -- can be found at www.sncmusic.com/tour.

Straight No Chaser's fourth full-length release, last year's "UNDER THE INFLUENCE" saw the vocal group reimagining a selection of their all time favorite songs alongside many of the superstar artists and undisputed music icons that made them famous. Produced by Mark Kibble (a founding member of the legendary a cappella group Take 6 and one of Straight No Chaser's primary influences), the album included unprecedented collaborations with some of popular music's best and brightest -- including Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Dolly Parton, Rob Thomas, Seal, Sara Bareilles, and Jason Mraz -- as Straight No Chaser put their distinctive and inimitable spin on songs known and loved the world over.

Long renowned for their trademark takes on Yuletide favorites, Straight No Chaser celebrated Christmas 2013 by unwrapping an all-new cache of Christmas classics, titled "UNDER THE INFLUENCE: HOLIDAY EDITION." Among the EP's highlights were renditions of "White Christmas (Feat. Cee Lo Green)" and "Merry Christmas Baby (Feat. Otis Redding)," alongside new versions of standards like "Amazing Grace." The EP further included a timeless rendition of Paul McCartney's classic "Wonderful Christmastime" featuring vocals by McCartney himself.
