New Karaoke Venue Update, Summer 2007

Fellow Karaoke Lovers:
I'm compiling a list of current places for Karaoke Bars and Boxes as well as reviews so we can know where to go for either a private or public session any day of the week. (Yes it IS possible). Also to let people which places have sadly passed on. Without further ado, here is the list of venue places, events and (sob) closings.

Although the establishment is still there, Martin and Merike have not done a karaoke show at 'Spice Isle Granadian Sports Bar' in a very long time - years in fact. The last time Martin (owner of Monster Karaoke & DJ Services) was there was aproximately 3-4 years ago.

Just wanted to let you know.
Cheers,
Doc

Thanks, I've updated this section accordingly. It really helps when people like you keep me in the loop as I really can't monitor activities of all venues by my little lonesome. Thanks again. I've also added some new venue info and a litlte news as well. Folks, the more you tell me, the more I can do. People like Doc help more than you may imagine.

 
At 3:23 PM, Blogger Jonah A. Libster said...

Yep. I have this place in the "closings" section but its not partitioned in an obvious way. I'll try to make it stand out more. Thanks for the info.
