Bingo Party: Everyone knows how to play Bingo! It’s not just for ladies
Karaoke: You could rent a karaoke room just about anywhere, but why not have the truly unique experience of being at your favorite spot with only your buddies for a Karaoke blowout! This is a lot more than just a machine this package comes with a killer KJ. Part entertainer, part singer, part sound technician, but mostly a KJ does their best to encourage others to sing. Some KJs will occasionally harmonize with the singers or interact (such as by playing the air guitar or a cow bell), but others simply queue up songs and enable the singers to have their moment in the spotlight. A KJ is very different from a DJ, since a KJ usually lets the singers pick the songs… except for the occasional kamakaze/karaoke-roulette, that is!
KJ Paul has one of the most sophisticated systems in the City and works with every singer to make them sound their very best. Working to adjust and mix the mic using a parametric EQ and several levels of effects, he does his best to to match the singer with the current song being sung. He will occasionally play back up air guitar or dance a little, but typically lets the singer(s) sing their song(s). KJ Paul’s typical setup includes four mics and separate monitor for the singers so they can hear themselves.KJ Glenn, aka the “Karaoke Shark” or “Glenny Kravitz” (KJGlenn.com), on the other hand, leans much more towards harmonizing with the singers and being part of the show. He is on stage performing with you, making you feel good.
The two shows are different but both offer a killer sound system, plenty of micas and an interactive good time for all.
