Last karaoke night of 2013

There is no karaoke at Toad Hall tomorrow, so this is the last karaoke night of the yeast for me. The Lookout is already decorated and there is a decent crowd considering that it is NYE tomorrow. The rotation is quick however.

KJ Paul Karaoke tonight at the Lookout!

IMG_1133KJ Paul Karaoke Mondays at The Lookout always makes for a fun night out in The Castro. We start early at 8PM, and the bar doesn’t get crowded until later in the evening, so there is a short rotation and you can sing several songs before the rush. Check out the best in San Francisco karaoke tonight!

Karaoke Recording Number 60,000 Coming Soon!

I started recording karaoke tracks back in 2009. In August 2010 I had a database crash so I lost the references to the first 10,000 or so recordings…I still have them but I do not have a way to know who sang what. So the first recording I have on my website is me singing Rocket Man ISO (in the style of) Elton John and it was recorded on October 31, 2010. I started the numbering at 10000, so you can listen to that song by going to KJPaul.com/10000.

Since then I have made a point out of singing every 10,000th song. Here is the list so far:
10,000: Rocket Man ISO Elton John, KJPaul.com/10000.
20,000: Faithfully ISO Journey, KJPaul.com/20000.
30,000: Waisted Time ISO The Eagles, KJPaul.com/30000.
40,000: Crystal Ball ISO Styx, KJPaul.com/40000.
50,000: Cover Of The Rolling Stone ISO Dr Hook, KJPaul.com/50000.

KJ Paul Karaoke recording number 60,000 will happen either Monday or Tuesday, so either at my Lookout karaoke night or my Toad Hall karaoke night.
