Black River Last Night

Thanks to ALL who attended last nights show at the Black River American Legion. It was great fun.
It went very well, and there were a few new faces and voices! For the first time in a long time we had mostly all KARAOKE there.. as it is usally hard to get the singers up to perform. Last night we went non-stop.
Hope to see you all back next time.

New Years Eve 2008 Pictures

I had to move the New Years Photos over from the old blog...
Here is the original posting:
Happy New Year!! January 3rd, 2009

We had a big turnout on New Years Eve! About 125 people attended the Watertown VFW for karaoke, dancing, drinking, and a good time.
There was lots of food which was brought in by those attending, and a good time was had by all. We had a steady rotation of singers, with many new voices.. but still managed to get a few dance numbers in for the party crowd.
At midnight we had a countdown and just about everyone was on the dance floor for “Auld Lang Signe” which was played after a fireworks and cheer to ring in 2009.
Many thanks to Pam for taking all the pictures for us. Below are a few pictures.. the others can be found on the main TGIK site under the link for TGIK PHOTOS.

You Might Be A Karaoke Junkie... If..

You clap when a song finishes on the radio.

Strangers walk up to you in Wal-Mart and compliment you on your singing.

People you don’t know ask, “Aren’t you a karaoke singer?”

You hear a song on the radio and think, that’s number SC7503-10.

You go to a concert and wonder when they’re gonna call you up to sing.

You write lists like this on the back of karaoke slips.

Last call comes and you say, “But I’ve got another song yet to sing!”

You have laryngitis and you still try to sing.

Someone asks you if you have a slip, and they’re not talking about underwear!

You know the location of every karaoke bar within 50 miles of your house.

You would never consider dating someone with a bad voice.

You see karaoke on TV and you think, “That’s not the way it’s done!”

You actually know that karaoke means “empty orchestra.”

It feels weird to go to a new karaoke bar and not sit at the “regulars” table.

You get upset when someone else is sitting in your place.

You hate it when someone sings your song.

The word “rotation” no longer conjures up thoughts of tires or sex.

You think you sound better than the original.

The first thing you think when you hear a new song on the radio is, “When is this coming out on karaoke?”

You’re a woman but you’re still willing to sing the guys part.. or viseversa.
