Tickets will be available to the public in most markets starting December 2nd.
Straight No Chaser -- who was recently featured on the "Generation YouTube" episode of ABC's 20/20 -- will be among the stars performing at the 85th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, airing Thursday, November 24th on NBC from 9 am to 12 pm EST (check local listings).
The appearance will celebrate the acclaimed a cappella group's new EP, "SIX PACK: VOLUME 2," which arrives in stores and all digital retailers on November 29th. The full EP is streaming now exclusively on Billboard.com. The EP is now available for pre-orders via Straight No Chaser's official web store, located at store.sncmusic.com. A variety of packages are on offer, including digital and CD editions of the EP as well as a "Deluxe Bundle" that comprises a CD, a poster/calendar, and a limited edition SNC stuffed bear.
"SIX PACK: VOLUME 2" sees Straight No Chaser putting their inimitable touch on a selection of modern pop classics, including Weezer's "Buddy Holly," Madonna's "Like A Prayer," and "Get Ready," written by Smokey Robinson and made famous by The Temptations. In addition, the new EP features two of SNC's signature medleys, the first pairing Plain White T's' "Rhythm Of Love" with the Elvis Presley standard, "Can't Help Falling In Love," the second blending Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" with Bell Biv Devoe's "Poison."
"SIX PACK: VOLUME 2" heralds Straight No Chaser's eagerly awaited new PBS special, Songs Of The Decades: Holiday Edition, which begins airing on PBS stations nationwide on December 3rd. Presented by WTTW National Productions, the special sees SNC taking a musical journey through the pop songbook, from doo-wop to contemporary pop, all performed with the distinctive Straight No Chaser twist. Filmed this summer during SNC's exclusive summer concert engagement at Harrah's Resort Atlantic City, Songs Of The Decades: Holiday Edition also includes a number of the seasonal favorites beloved by fans around the world. A sneak preview of the new special can currently be viewed at SNC's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/sncmusic.
