Greetings Karaoke fans! This is the place to be to find out what's going on with Karaoke in our part of the world!
I'm here to keep you updated on Karaoke events
and places to sing.
If you know of any events I may not have listed, please contact me at:
Are you already a 'seasoned' Karaoke Krooner?
Or have you always
wanted to try it but were too chicken? ;-)
We all have to start
Why not make the year 2000 the year you get up there
and try it out?
There are all types of Karaoke singers. Some of them only like to sing songs by certain artists, others will get up there and try a new song every time. I particularly LOVE these people! Not only do they vary their songs and styles, they also remind us there are some Great songs out there to sing! It's very easy to fall into one or two songs you feel comfortable with and have had a good response to. Getting up there to try a brand new song
can sometimes feel like you're getting up there for the first time all over again! A lot of it can be trial and error.
Hey, we've all been there, we're a forgiving crowd and we all have our off nights.
The thing is to TRY it. I've heard people sing that should truly be getting paid to do it and I've heard some folks who shouldn't be
allowed to get within a mile of human ears if they are planning to sing!
( Make that 5 miles for dogs! )
We still give these troopers credit for getting up there!
If you haven't tried Karaoke, you just may surprise yourself if you give it a shot! Who knows, you may even gain a whole new confidence level...
If you had told me a couple years ago that I would be getting up in front of a room Full of people and singing alone, ( gulp! ) I would have said you were nuts!
Now my friends Vicki and John, who talked me into trying, are saying that they have created a monster!
You know what? They're absolutely right
and I Love them for it!
The first time I tried to sing a solo, I chose a night that my friends were away. I barely knew anyone in the bar. This way I figured that if I bombed, it would be in front of strangers. Up until that time I had only sung with someone else or even a group of people. I was so nervous, I had to leave the microphone on the stand because my hands were shaking so badly! I never sang that song again...I didn't 'bomb', I just wasn't happy with how I sounded or the song choice. That didn't keep me from trying again though. The next time I tried a solo, I chose a song closer to my voice range, my friends were there and the rest is history! You don't have to be a brave, outgoing person to try Karaoke, you just have to have the desire to sing. The rest will follow, Believe Me!
How often have you finished singing a song in your car, shower, stairway ( great acoustics in stairways by the way! ) or even your Auntie Em's laundry room, and caught yourself thinking, "hey, that was really good!"( ? )
Why deprive the rest of us of such talent? Come on out and let us Hear you! Singing in your car, shower, stairway etc. is great but you don't get the rush of hearing the applause after it. ( Well, ok, maybe Good Ol' Aunt Em will cheer you on as she hands you a brownie! )
After you hear that applause the first time, you get hooked! It's also less fattening than getting hooked on those darned brownies! :~O
Why not stop the 'Air Karaoke' and give the real thing a chance? Let me know how it works out!
If you have a fun Karaoke story to tell or a question about Karaoke, drop me a line.
