There have been countless renditions of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” sung by a variety of different artists, but none are as funny as Straight No Chaser’s hilarious version. The talented group of a capella singers gathered together while on tour in New Mexico and belt out a rendition of the song we’re never going to forget!
The moment the music starts, one of the members explains that they created their very own choreography for this performance – the audience has no idea that it’s going to be so funny! This type of performance is quintessential Straight No Chasers.
The group’s official website explain just how different they are from other a capella singers. The site states that if the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivied campuses… think again.
“Straight No Chaser (SNC) are neither strait-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch. As original member Randy Stine comments, ‘We take the music very seriously; we just don’t take ourselves too seriously.'”
In fact, Straight No Chaser has been busy reinventing the idea of a cappella on the modern pop landscape. The men of Straight No Chaser are no strangers to performing in front of big crowds, like in the video below. Not only is their sound incredible, but so is their style.
This talented group first formed while attending school at Indiana University and their momentum hasn’t stopped. Now they sing all over the country and share their wonderful voices (and hilarious dance moves) with massive crowds!
These men are just too darn funny! You have to see for yourself how incredibly amazing they are. Once they begin singing, the audience is enraptured with their sound.
In fact, they guys start stretching while wearing their tan suits, limbering up for their performance. They draw all sorts of laughter from the crowd.
Take a peek at their goofy rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” in the video below.
