Stamford Tech Meetup: Bring Your Own Karaoke
Please join us for our first techie karaoke jam after dinner and networking.
How to find your favorite Karaoke video track(s) on YouTube (we recommend having tracks prepared in advance):
Download the YouTube app on your mobile device. Search with the words “karaoke” and the artist who made the song popular (like, “karaoke bowie”). Make sure the audio track is without vocals and with words on screen (some “karaoke” tracks are the actual song with vocals and with words on screen...that’s not what you want). Play the song to make sure that it will play beyond the ad. Then pause the track at the beginning, and get ready to sing!
