I was recently inspired by Eventbrite to create a post about a local business that I love for winter activities (this is not a sponsored post). What a task! You know how much I love supporting local events from 5 Ways to Find Free Summer Activities. These are the same ways I find winter events to attend with my family. In fact, a local park had an amazing winter event in December that we had a blast at despite the freezing temperatures. However, if you’re looking for a fun local activity that fits your schedule all winter long, you can’t beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. It is the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and has family-friendly options as well as options for an adults-only night out!
Why it’s the Best Karaoke in Northern Kentucky
Roy Sharp, the host and owner, is amazing. His sound quality is unmatched because he personally adjusts the sound for each singer. He will make sure that you sound your best each time you sing. Even more so, he is very friendly and supportive so don’t worry if you’re nervous.
He also takes pride in his equipment because he cares about his show and the wonderful singers who attend it. He has invested his time and money to find the best mixer, digital programs, and wireless mics to make your experience awesome. Not only is his equipment phenomenal but he knows how to use it meaning less technology delays and more fun. He also has a huge selection of songs from Disney movies to heavy metal. No matter what style you sing, you will find something at his show.
The shows are fair. Any karaoke-er knows that a lot of local shows play by the “good ‘ole boys” systems. That means that the host will bump you down the list if the host’s friends or family members stop in to only sing for an hour. This doesn’t happen at Roy’s shows. He keeps a list of the singers as they come and consistently keeps that order.
Does that mean that if you come in late that you go to the bottom of a list of 40 singers? It absolutely does not. He works that fairly, too, by weaving in new singers between existing singers who have been at the show longer. This helps ensure that everyone who comes to sing gets their opportunity.
Family Friendly Option
Did you ever think you could find a family-friendly karaoke night that wasn’t on a cruise? Sharpsounds Karaoke has managed to do that too! On Wednesday and Thursday nights you can find him at the Green Lantern Café in Latonia, Kentucky. If you haven’t been to this venue since they re-did it, you are missing out.
The restaurant is non-smoking, serves up delicious food, filled with the local games on the big screens, and, of course, karaoke. Your kids can get in on the singing fun while you enjoy a family meal (until 10 pm EST). You also don’t have to worry about inappropriate songs coming on during dinner. Roy won’t let other singers sing songs (such as “Closer” by Nine Inch Nails) during the hours that children are allowed in the café.
Adults Only Option
For an adults-only night out you can check out Sharpsounds Karaoke at Average Joe’s in Ft. Mitchell, Kentucky. Found right off of interstate 71/75, it is the perfect option for a fun night of singing. In addition to the awesome karaoke show there is also a billiard table, video games, and an outdoor patio. The many options make it easier to find a place to sing that even your non-karaoke-ing friends will enjoy.
There is one more awesome aspect to Sharpsounds Karaoke that truly makes it the best karaoke in Northern Kentucky and that is the free parties. Every year during the holidays there are Christmas parties, a New Year’s Eve celebration and countless other celebrations. Each one of these is totally free to attend and will include freebies like food or favors. On New Year’s Eve you even get a free champagne toast at midnight, again absolutely for free. There is no cover charge or minimum purchase to be included in the fun.
Seriously, if you love to sing your heart out at karaoke you cannot beat Sharpsounds Karaoke. Once you go you’ll feel like family. Plus it doesn’t hurt that you can make a family night of it with the kiddos. Now that you know my favorite place to do karaoke, come back for tips to save money on girl’s night out. You’ll be ready to grab the girls and head out for a night on the town.
