Live Band Karaoke sponsored by the Pitt-Johnstown Program Board  - Back by popular demand!
Cambria Room, Student Union.

Combining the silly fun of karaoke with the energy of a live rock band, Live Band Karaoke allows anyone to fulfill their rock and roll fantasy.

Singing is only half the fun! Watching others performing their unique renditions of rock’s greatest songs also contribute to the hilarity. Some singers really belt out the tunes, while others make up for a lack of singing ability with rowdy stage presence. Either way, the irony and humor work on many levels as the band rocks out the songs true to the original recording. Band members can also contribute as back up vocalists and help out with forgotten lyrics.

Live Band Karaoke provides lyric sheets for any song on the list. The lyrics are printed in large type so they are easier to read while singing. There are tons of songs to choose from covering all areas of rock and roll providing something for everyone.

8:00 pm   Coronation of the Homecoming King and Queen,  Cambria Room
