Okay, I know it is unusual for me to write about two different venues in the same post. The reason I am condensing these nights is a demanding daytime schedule that has left me with precious little time for writing. Let me just say, however, that I had a great time at each bar.
Starting Amnesia last Tuesday night, a few guys got together to host live band karaoke followed by Glenny Kravitz with his Amnesia karaoke night, now in it's 10th year. The band were slow to get things started, but soon they had the crowd on their feet dancing and singing along to their own sometimes out of time and improvised renditions of popular songs. It was fun to watch. Next time, I'll make sure to go to their website to sign up for a song, in advance. Next, it was the Glenny Kravitz's turn to make even the worst Amnesiac remember Tuesday night karaoke. A fun time is guaranteed when the Karaoke Shark is in the house!
Next, and again starring the crazy, irreverent Glenny Kravitz is Stray Bar's Friday night karaoke on Pride Weekend. What could be more fun? I'll tell you, it is amazing feeling for a singer when a bar is packed yet only a few people are singing. All night long the rotation ranged from 4 to 7 people. And we singers were collectively happy as F*ck about it! Glenny kept things grooving along, doling out some serious karaoke roulette for those who dared. The crowd, even though most of them came just to socialize and drink, made the night by being so freakin' nice! They are some of the most cordial and well-mannered bar peeps I have met in a long time. I would like to thank everyone at Stray Bar that night, for such a memorable evening!
Now, for some interesting photos from both nights. Additional photos will be available for viewing at Ash Wednesday Karaoke Insider's Group, on Facebook. Enjoy!
