Basic Karaoke Etiquette
Consider the following to make the karaoke experience better for everyone:
  1. Know your song.
  2. Try to avoid overlong songs (5+ minutes).
  3. Only put one song request in at a time.
  4. Don’t join in on someone else’s song unless invited.
  5. Show your love for other singers!

Karaoke Tips
Bring your karaoke game to the next level with the following tips:

  1. Sell your performance with stage presence, audience interaction, and more.
  2. Try to choose songs that are a bit more obscure but still recognizable.
  3. Try to pull from a variety of artists/genres to keep things interesting.
  4. Prop karaoke? Sometimes the mic stand or a barstool can add a little “oomph” to your performance.
  5. Remember, it’s only karaoke… if you’re having fun, the audience will follow.

Microphone Mechanics
Want to be heard and sound good? Make sure you’re working the microphone correctly:

  1. Hold the microphone by the handle and don’t block the windscreen.
  2. Sing directly into the microphone (not at an angle).
  3. Keep the microphone close to your mouth.
  4. Don’t yell into the microphone; but if you must get loud, pull the microphone away from your mouth.
  5. Listen for your voice in the speakers.
