Collins said he thinks listeners find a cappella refreshing. He compared his group to a cool glass of lemonade, sipped while sitting in the shade of a tree on a hot summer’s day.

Straight No Chaser opens Chautauqua's season (Tyler)

This is one of those questions you only have if you read a lot of SNC articles like I do: It mystifies me why articles will mention Seggie by full name and not the other nine. I understand the Sargon/Seggie, but then shouldn't it be Sargon "Seggie" Isho? Why do they always add the David? Are they really mentioning his full name during the interview every single time? I'm starting to think it's a SNC inside joke or something. lol  

Update: I asked SNC Tell-All Tuesday/Seggie on Twitter if he knew why, and Seggie replied that he'd never even noticed that was happening. He assumed it had something to do with him being in trouble, though. haha So, the mystery continues!

Each member likes to suggest songs; not all of them make it to the stage. But Trepp is proud of the contribution he dreamed up with Sargon David Isho ("Seggie").

"We do a medley that's theme songs that didn't have words; they had melodies everyone knew. I thought it'd be funny to put words to them, and Seggie helped with the lyrics with it," Trepp said. "We got it in the set and it's one of our most popular songs."
