Singing in the shower lacks a certain pizzazz. For the aspiring frontman who wants to get the crowd pumping with the full force of a band’s booming bass, the only solution (besides quitting your well-paying job to pursue a music career) is Live Band Karaoke. Taking the sing-it-yourself genre to a whole new level, Live Band Karaoke with Casual Encounters at the House of Blues allows you, Regular Joe Public, to live out your rock star fantasies (minus the hard core drugs) in the most virtual reality of all—real life. Get the crowds up and dancing by belting some karaoke favorites like “Sweet Caroline,” “Don’t Stop Believing,” and “Careless Whisper.” Who knows, it could be the start of a real life journey into sing-song celebrity.
