IU's Straight No Chaser sings 'Stand By Me' for fast food employees
Straight No Chaser, Indiana University's male A Cappella group, sings "Stand By Me" by Ben E. King for fastfood workers in a random Hardees while on a road trip in Kentucky. Filmed February, 2007. Soloists: Luke Mechling and Corey Frye.
Straight No Chaser was Indiana University's collegiate A Cappella group. Each year old members would graduate and new members were recruited. This video consists of members of the 2007 group.
In 2008, this video and one from Randy Stein, a founding member of SNC, went viral. That video was their 1998 performance of "The 12 Days of Christmas." The videos got the attention of Atlantic Records who signed the founding members to a record deal. They are still creating music and touring around the world as "Straight No Chaser."
The Indiana University collegiate group, to avoid confusion with the professional SNC, changed their name to "Another Round." They're also still creating music and serenading sorority girls.
Many of the members in this video are still creating music. Several founded the A Cappella group "Gentleman's Rule," Corey Frye is the lead singer of "The Main Squeeze," and Tyler Trepp joined the professional Straight No Chaser.
