If blazers, ties, khakis, and a worn book of traditional, ivied songs is the image conjured by “male a cappella group,” look again. Straight No Chaser dons a combo of style, swagger, and spirit to belt out stadium anthems, R&B smooth jams, and holiday staples—neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but a world away from vaudeville-style kitsch. Plucked from a moment of nostalgia to become a global phenomenon, the nine voices have pulled together a massive fanbase and a long list of accomplishments, from a pair of gold-certified albums and over 1 billion Pandora streams to 1.5 million concert tickets sold and even more albums, with nothing more than microphones in hand, grins ear-to-ear, and witty banter on point. Straight No Chaser is the real deal: the captivating sound of extraordinary music, moving people in a fundamental sense, and with a sense of humor.

Ambrosia, known and loved by a throng of fans since the 1970s, is more alive and compelling than ever. The five-time Grammy-nominated group is exploring new musical territory just as in its early days, wrapping roots of soul, rhythm, and blues with progressive, classical, and world influences. First labeled as America’s answer to the English acts Yes and King Crimson, the group quickly proved itself with a unique blend of aural landscapes and hit singles like “How Much I Feel” and “Biggest Part of Me.” Ambrosia’s musical style attracted collaboration with cultural icons like Leonard Bernstein, Alan Parsons, Bruce Hornsby, Michael McDonald, and Edgar Winter, as well as extensive tour dates with Fleetwood Mac, Heart, and the Doobie Brothers.
