Why You Should Try Karaoke

The Music Concierge provides high energy, state of the art karaoke services for bars & restaurants, corporate events and public & private parties of all kinds. Our experienced karaoke jockeys (KJs) keep the energy flowing by providing suggestions for song selection, singing backups when requested, minimizing dead air and even downloading songs on the spot. Our premiere Ultimate Karaoke  package delivers the ultimate on stage experience with a laser light show, fog machine, shadow dancing, video projection and sound reinforcement.

Other than being in a band, karaoke is the best way for budding singers to build their performing chops. The rise of singing competitions on television across the world is proof positive of this fact. And because it can be difficult to find, form or be in a band, often times karaoke is the best way for a singer to get on stage experience. It’s also a great way to get out and meet new people. Very few opportunities come while sitting on the couch. So if you want to develop your skill, or if you just want to have fun and sing, get on out there. You never know just who you’ll see.

For bars and restaurants it can be an additional source of revenue on otherwise slow nights. Many local bars schedule karaoke nights on Sundays, Mondays or Tuesdays for this reason. Given time and support a following, or scene, can develop into an important revenue stream. Other establishments schedule their karaoke nights on busier nights and weekends when they’re sure to have a lot of patrons and maximum participation. If this suits the character of the bar or restaurant, this is a quicker way to build a scene. Especially when there is an experienced karaoke jockey. The KJs at The Music Concierge use state of the art equipment and software to deliver the Ultimate Karaoke experience.

Karaoke also provides outstanding team building opportunities for small businesses, nonprofits and corporate clients. Because it’s an activity that incorporates, but doesn’t require group participation, it’s one of the most effective ways to overcome the fear of public speaking. It’s not uncommon for participants to start off by singing songs in large groups and, as their confidence builds, they sing in smaller groups, then duets and finally solo. It’s inspirational to see the amazing transformations that can happen in just one night. When compared with other team building exercises, in terms of costs and benefits, there’s little doubt that karaoke offers tremendous value.

Some artistic elites may look down on karaoke as a an art form. We see it as a fun way for everyday people to spend time together expressing themselves. Most everyone we know sings along to songs in their shower or car. Singing karaoke is a natural extension of our connection to music that’s not only fun, but can also provide some unexpected benefits (see Forbes “Why Business Schools Should Make Karaoke Mandatory“) for the participants.

Karaoke is fun right? Especially when you feel like you can really sing like a pro. We recommend these online singing lessons to our karaoke guests and the results are impressive. You’re probably not going to wind up sounding like Michael Buble or Christina Aguilera, but you will gain the confidence to stand in front of a crowd and sing at the top of your lungs.
