Straight No Chaser (SNC) is an American vocal group from Bloomington, Indiana. The group's name is taken from a jazz piece by Thelonious Monk. It began as a cappella group at Indiana Univsersity in 1996. The group performed both modern and traditional songs on campus and beyond, and finally signed a record deal with Atlantic Records in 2008. The SNC is still also in rotation at the university, as a separate entity. The group has even performed at Carnegie Hall. Both groups perform popular pop songs as well as musical ballads.
Mark O'Connor is a violinist from Seattle, Washington whose talents range from music composition, teaching, and the ability to play several styles of music on the violin.

Mark O'Connor definitely does not fall under this category. Not only is O'Connor sought after for his talents as a classical, bluegrass, jazz and country violinist for performances on film, television and in concert, his method for learning the violin has also been adopted by students and teachers of string instruments throughout the world.
