For those of you who have never heard of Straight No Chaser, I’m about to enlighten you. SNC is a 10-man a cappella group that sings everything from classic songs like The Lion Sleeps Tonight to today’s hits by artists such as Lady Gaga.

Why should you care about this? Because they are coming to the valley next week! Yes, you heard it correctly. Straight No Chaser will be at Musikfest on August 11th. When I heard that they were playing here, I got a little excited, but didn’t rush to get tickets right away. The only person I knew who liked them (at the time) lived three hours away and she has graduate classes, bummer. Turns out, my coworker Megan enjoys the sweet and angelic sounds of these handsome fellas as much as I do. You can still get tickets to this fabulous event. Oh yea! You know I have my tickets,  now that I have a partner in crime to go with! I can’t speak for Megan, but I know I’m pretty pumped.

Not only is there excitement behind SNC, but this is the first year for the new Sands Steel Stage, located at the PNC Plaza at SteelStacks (on the south side of Bethlehem). This is the main concert stage that many of you may recall being located on North side.

You can look forward to a recap blog about the concert which will either be written by Megan or me. Most of you already know how funny Megan is, so there’s a lot to look forward to.

Who do you plan on seeing during Musikfest?
