Live Band Karaoke!

In Summer 2013, this examiner joined a friend at a dive called Eck's Saloon, a beer and burger joint just off Hampden & Kipling in Lakewood, to participate in a live-band-karaoke night by the band U ROCK. The group is a karaoke coverband that consists of the following members:

Jessica - Lead Vocals
Robert - Bass/Vocals
Jay - Guitar/Vocals
Chuck - Guitar/Vocals
Gary - Drums/Vocals

While the group doesn't perform original music (at least for this show), they're definitely well rehearsed in songs that we all know and love. To those who don't generally sing karaoke, here's how you do it; Arrive, sign up, wait, watch, and join the group on stage when your name is called. When they go by song name in alphabetical order, just keep in mind you may be waiting for several hours, depending on your choice. There was no cover charge or fee to join.
You'll really feel like a Rockstar while you sing your favorite tune on stage with professional effects, lighting, and sound. With Jessica's powerhouse vocals harmonizing with your own, Robert, Jay, Chuck, and Gary give me an Depeche meets Fleetwood kinda vibe.
While this group seems to still be gaining a following, the venue wasn't exactly packed, but in my opinion, should have been because they're one of the most professional groups I've seen in a long time.
