What to Look for in a Karaoke Bar

If you love singing and you’re in Louisiana why not try a little Baton Rouge karaoke. Not only is it a great way to spend time with your friends, it’s also a fantastic way to express yourself through the joy of music.

And if you think these types of bars are a thing of the past, think again. In practically every state in the United States as well as internationally, more and more people are becoming interested in both singing and listening to karaoke singing.

However, even with its popularity, not every business is really equipped to entertain a crowd with live karaoke. Here’s what to look for:

  • First and foremost it’s probably best if you look for a place that hires professional DJ services in their establishment since those who don’t will probably only have a simple little machine set up for karaoke. Believe me, it can make all the difference in the world when you don’t have great sound quality to belt out those tunes.
  • It’s also a good idea to check out the assortment of music that the DJ service has to offer for singing. A variety of music (the bigger the better) is a good chance for you to sing and even try out tunes you never thought you could. So you definitely want to make sure there’s a good selection of classic music and the latest as well as country to rock. After all, not everyone likes the same era or even genre.
  • A lot of the problems many people have had in the past with singing is being put on a stage in front of crowds. Of course for most of us who love to sing, it’s the thrill of being on that stage that really gets us going. If you like the stage scene, then you’ll want to find a place where there’s plenty of room to move around freely or if you’re not so fond of that scene, you might try places where they allow you to simple sit at your table and sing.
  • And while you’re at it, make sure wherever you’re at you can see the screen to read the words, otherwise unless you know the song by heart, you’re going to be at a loss for words if you can’t see what to sing.
  • Also look for a disc jockey that doesn’t hog the microphone, allow people to sing several songs in a row, let people sing the same songs over and over or plays more dance music than anything else. It’s a real disappointment when you’ve come to sing only to find out you may have to wait hours just to get one song in.
  • And on that note, if you want to sing several songs, you might want to look for a place where there’s not a huge crowd or go on a night where there aren’t a lot of karaoke’ers.

And while there are a few places that do charge to sing, most don’t. So if you’re lucky enough to find a place where the cover charge and singing are both free then you should at least make it a point to buy a drink. Most bars now offer soda, tea, water and juice, so if you’re not fond of alcohol, you have an alternative. It’s also a safer approach if you have friends who are planning to drink and need a driver. After all, you want to make sure that you are able to come back and sing again at your new favorite Baton Rouge karaoke club.
