A Night of Straight No Chaser -

Last night we got to see Straight No Chaser in concert -


(here is the youtube video that went viral and subsequently launched a career, 2 CDs and touring schedule - over a decade after it was recorded)...

They performed in Benaroya Hall...

...which is beautifully bookended by some gorgeous Chihuly chandeliers...

(which is one of the perks of living in Seattle - lots of awesome Chihuly glass sculptures about!)

They are amazing performers - entertaining, high energy and full of humor. It was a great concert - we were sad when it was over and hope to go see them again when they are next in town. (See another very entertaining music performance here).

They are also incredibly approachable and gregarious - and all came out to sign CDs and T-shirts after the performance. They seem like a great bunch of guys.

Here is a more 'straight' performance:

Sounds like a wonderful evening, such good music. The chandeliers must be very awesome in person as those sculptures are wonderful. Love the chicken and the post on Waterhouse. I really like his work. I've never seen it in person, maybe someday.
