Karaoke Rebels Revolt at the Napper Tandy

Saturday, April 10, 2010

Karaoke at the Napper Tandy is one of the most fun times you can have on a Saturday night. Irish owned in the heart of the Mission, the welcoming staff makes you feel right at home. Good reviews abound on Yelp about this place and not just for Saturday night. Cheap drinks and Irish and American pub grub make this place a favorite spot for neighborhood locals.

The host is Ken Fate, a.k.a. Kendoke, a man on a mission. He wants to provide you with a memorable singing experience, and will go out of his way to get you there. If you can't find what you're looking for in his songbook, Ken can download the song directly from a music site over the Internet. In a matter of seconds you're ready to sing! Please keep in mind that Ken works hard for his money, so please tip him well!

Making for a Karaoke venue takes many things: location and drink prices are two such variables. KJ's have their considerations like the accurateness and variety of his song list. Another important factor, in my humble opinion, is interactivity with the crowd. Take some old wood, foam rubber, and duct tape, and BAM! A Faux Guitar is born! It's amazing how quickly this will turn a less than interested crowd into a screaming audience. The corner at which singer and KJ exist in relation to the bar is the perfect storm for inciting an instant Karaoke rock show!

Some of the evening's participants were Spalding, who sang AC/DC's "TNT" with Moe grinding the axe, Claudia and Carlos in a Metallica duet, and Carol and Shannon blasting a song I've never heard before. All very good singers and axe players! Do not be discouraged, Karaoke is for fun, and good singer and not so good singers alike are always encouraged to sing your heart out. Find the courage to sing aloud and the crowd will applaud you for it!
