Hello my fellow Karaoke Addicts,
August begins a new month with many meetups to share. We’ve got some exciting things planned, so get ready:
1. Karaoke Contest Starts Tonight – Our member KJ Dave of Song Bird Productions reports that a new karaoke contest starts tonight at Bluz By You at 8:30 p.m. There is a $5 entrance fee. It will continue at Senzala’s on Thursday at 8:00 p.m. and the Creekside at the following Thursday at 9:00 p.m. Please contact KJ Dave through Meetup or at his website: www.songbirdproductions.biz for more details.
2. Announcing a New Group Perk: I am pleased to report that our group has a new Perk offered by Sherman Cellars/Creekview Vineyards in San Jose. I believe they are affiliated with A Perfect Finish where we had that great meetup last week. Sherman Wine Cellars is located at 40 Post Street in Downtown San Jose. The Perk they have generously offered to our group is 50% off Wine Tastings which are regularly $10 get 2 for $10. To redeem just mention that you are a member of our Meetup group, the South Bay Karaoke Group. Click on the “perk” link on our website for more details.
3. New Karaoke Venues and Updates: My sources tell me that karaoke can be found at the following new locations:
a. Sunset Bar & Grill, 101 Curtner Avenue, San Jose, CA, Wednesday nights, 9:30 p.m. with DJ Curtis – NEW!
b. Bluz By You, 1240 Coleman Ave, Santa Clara, CA 95050, Monday nights, 8:30 p.m. with KJ Dave & Marilyn of Songbird Productions – Karaoke is back at this venue!
4. HOT AUGUST NIGHTS BEGINS THIS FRIDAY 8/5/2011: August begins a new series of mini-marathons and challenges for the true karaoke addict. Because it's gonna be TOO DAMN HOT to stay at home, we're going to have karaoke every weekend for the entire month. That's 3 full weekend days (Fri Sat Sun) of karaoke X 4 weekends a month = 12 weekend nights of karaoke! Too much hot karaoke for you? No worries. You can pick and choose which events you want to attend and we'll greet you with open arms. But the lucky karaoke addict who RSVP's, attends AND sings a song at all 12 of these Hot August Nights events will win a $25.00 gift certificate to the Acapulco Restaurant (or other karaoke venue of your choice), plus some great SBK stuff. And just to make it fun for all, we'll have some great door prizes and SBK swag for everyone who RSVP's and attends any one of these Hot August Nights events.
5. Upcoming Meetups:
a. Wednesday, 8/3/2011 – We’ll be trying out the karaoke stylings at a new venue, Sunset Bar & Grill in San Jose at 9:30 p.m. Our member Pam will be hosting this event as I will be working hard for the man that night. http://www.meetup.com/southbaykaraoke/events/27832151/
b. Friday, 8/5/2011 – Neto’s Market & Grill, at 6:30 p.m. Come sing with a live band via open mike karaoke courtesy of Vegas Nights Band http://www.meetup.com/southbaykaraoke/events/25086701/
c. Saturday, 8/6/2011 – We’ll be at the Oasis enjoying KJ Doug’s services and the song list of Avents Empty Band beginning at 8:00 p.m. http://www.meetup.com/southbaykaraoke/events/25674681/
d. Sunday 8/7/2011 – We’ll close out the first HOT AUGUST NIGHTS weekend with a return visit to fan favorite BOGARTS with KJ Dennis http://www.meetup.com/southbaykaraoke/events/25675511/
6. Hosts Still Needed for August 19-21, 2011 and September 2-5, 2011 - Folks, I am still looking for volunteer hosts for these weekends during which time I will be out of town. Remember, if you volunteer to be a host, YOU get to pick the location, even if we’ve already been there this month. Just pick your favorite Friday or Saturday location and I’ll post it on our calendar. And, to make things fun, you can have a "theme" event if you wish. So, please let me know if you be interested in being a host those weekends. I'd hate for our group to miss out on some great karaoke just because I'll be away.
Stay tuned for more info. Hope to see you at one of the meetups.
