A Funny Definition of Karaoke
I once read a tee-shirt that said Karaoke meant "tone-deaf drunk with a microphone." Maybe that is the case a lot of the time, but karaoke is much more than that and it has a significant history. Generally, Karaoke is accepted to mean "empty orchestra" and got its start in Japan in the 1970s. Traditionally, Karaoke singers were found at dinner parties and places with small rooms devoted to private parties where people gather and sing along to pre-recorded tracks with the lyrics displayed on a small television screens.
In the 1980s Karaoke started to really make a mark on American culture and has been going strong ever since. Karaoke is a favorite among college students and amateur singers everywhere.
What's Our Karaoke All About?
Because Karaoke is so popular, at our shows we never find ourselves waiting for singers.There is usually at least one brave soul eagerly waiting for the show begin. And once the first person sings, the ball gets rolling until it has snowballed into a full rotation with many singers waiting to sing and the crowd anticipating the next entertainer.
The great thing about Karaoke is that you don't have to be the best singer to get the biggest and best cheer from the crowd. One aspect of Karaoke is, as our good friend once said, all about "getting drunk and having fun with your friends."
Another very important aspect is that Karaoke allows people, both singers and listeners, to get outside themselves and enjoy sharing the beauty of music with another person, if only for 3 and 1/2 minutes.
