Straight No Chaser


Thursday, January 3: 
Straight No Chaser.
  If the phrase “male a cappella group” conjures up an image of students in blue blazers, ties, and khakis singing traditional college songs on ivy-league campuses, think again. These men are neither straight-laced nor straight-faced, but neither are they vaudeville-style kitsch.  Enjoy the captivating sound of ten unadulterated human voices coming together to make extraordinary music that is moving people in a fundamental sense, and with a sense of humor. An unforgettable live act.  Maui Arts & Cultural Center, Castle Theatre, 1 Cameron Way, Kahului.  7:30 p.m.  For tickets and information call (808) 242-7469 or visit
