About Us

Our names are Amanda & Megan. If you're reading this right now we can only assume that you are a fan of Straight No Chaser! We have had so many adventures in our journeys to see them that we needed a place to write them all down. Cue blog! We can only imagine the adventures will continue and we can't wait to see where they lead us.


Clearing my head

There are so many things going on in my life right now and since Megan’s SNC therapy session seemed to help in the last post I decided I should try it out.  As I sit here waiting for my class to begin at Bridgewater State University (where btw, my car is parked illegally), everyone is silently reading or diligently working on their computers and I want nothing more than to be “that guy” and blast some SNC.  That being said these are just some random thoughts that have been going through my head and are listed in no particular order….

            First random thought: I listened to the radio for the first time in a long time. Not impressed. It didn’t take me long to pop one of my CD’s back into the CD player. I’ve been listening to Ryan’s CD’s a lot. What I decided to do was make a playlist on my iTunes with all of my SNC music, Ryan’s solo music, and Mike’s solo music. It’s currently on my iPod, and I highly recommend doing this, it keeps me musically content for hours.

            Second random thought: If you’ve read any of our other entries, you know that I made Megan and myself SNC bracelets. What you would not know is that for a while mine was missing. I kept this information to myself and lived in a silent depression.  Last week I decided to be productive with my life and I made my way to the car wash.  I found my bracelet hidden away under the seat of my car. If you had been there, you would have thought I found a million dollars hidden under there! I was SO excited.

            Third random thought: Megan and I have indeed gotten our creative juices flowing again. We are fully prepared for the next SNC concert….which at this point we have no idea when it will be. When you remove the fact that we haven’t actually started yet, this is the best project we’ve taken on by far. I can’t tell you what it is, but rest assured you will find out soon enough.

            Fourth random thought: Atlantic City cannot come fast enough! While I can say with 100% certainty, Megan and I WILL be there, the dates in which we are going may not be ideal. Last year we went to their last concert in AC, and unbeknownst to us so did a lot of other chasers. This year we were hoping to make the journey down to AC again for their last show (as well as a couple others if possible). Unfortunately, it’s beginning to look like that won’t be possible.  I already know that my two weeks of vacation will be the last two weeks of July and Megan also runs a summer camp so for her to get time off for the last show may be difficult. As much as we are still going to try for that last show, we know that if we don’t make it, you other chasers will keep us will informed on what is going on. It seems a bit early to be thinking about this stuff but lets be fair, I’ve been thinking about this since New Years Eve.

If you’ve made it this far, Thank you for reading my crazy rants. I’m working hard on a banner for Mike, like the one above I made for Ryan but the blog will probably not have any updates in the next week.  Megan and I will be taking the Earth Science MTEL next Saturday (which incase you don’t know is the test you have to pass in Massachusetts to be licensed as a teacher) so our focus will be mainly on that (obvious wishful thinking). Fingers crossed!

Question of the week:

If you could only listen to one SNC song on repeat, what would it be? Leave a comment below!


  1. Like a Prayer is my favorite SNC song! I could listen to it on a continsous look all day!

  2. I'm Your/Somewhere Over The Rainbow

  3. With a Twist: Don't Dream it Over

    Christmas Cheers: I'll Be Home for Christmas and Christmas Can Can

    Holiday Spirits: Auld Lang Syne

    YouTube/live: Jersey Boy Medley

    It's SO hard to just pick one song!!!


  4. Hi De Ho, Reading. I'll Be Home For Christmas. Under The Bridge.

    I'm sorry...did you say just one? lol

  5. With A Twist: The Living Years

    Christmas Cheers: Hey Santa!

    Holiday Spirits: Santa Clause is Comin' To Town

    youtube/live: Lady Gaga


    ps: More than one is PERFECTLY fine! lol

  6. The first thing I would say is "Moonlight" by Twenty Nights. One of the most brilliant songs I have ever heard. And they're a former 1/5 of SNC, so it counts! :)

  7. KristinC, I downloaded Twenty Nights the other day, and I have to say Moonlight is a beautiful song and an acceptable answer to this question!


  8. With a Twist ~ Fix You
    DVD ~ You Send Me and Moondance
    Live ~ Lady GaGa and Hi De Ho

    However, depending on my mood, these may change at any given time. :)

  9. Bridge Over Troubled Water - loving the 3 soloists!
