So, it has come to our attention that Wing Nutz in Orem is a GREAT venue to be doing karaoke at. While we've been at places that have a little friendlier setup space for the singing area, there is one small factor that gets me going for this show: THE CROWD!!! Every Weds night it feels like a family, and a bunch of cool people get together and sing. Even if you suck at your song, or if the genre isn't the favorite on the list, people still clap, yell and cheer when a singer finishes their selection. It is just a good, solid crowd that never disappoints. You should really come out and Rock The Mic with us!
_Last night was one of the opening nights at the Owl Bar, located at the Sundance Resort nestled in the Provo Canyon. We have been doing the show there for a while now, but the resort closed down for the Thanksgiving weekend, being that there isn't much snow and people like to be home with family. It started slow, but by the end of the night we had about 30 people having fun and Rocking The Mic, which if you have been to the owl bar you know seems pretty full.
One of our own, Kid Carolina, came up and started singing some of the good old hits: The Rolling Stones, Neil Diamond, stuff like that. Out from the back comes none other than Robert Redford with his wife. He owns the resort and pretty much half the mountain, and can be seen from time to time a around the resort. They came and spoke to Mike and I briefly about his wonderful voice, singing, and the cool DJ program we were using. Both of them were very cordial and pleasant people, the kind of people you could have hour-long conversations without an ounce of effort. It was a good time the rest of the night, and we finished at 1:00 AM !!! That's how the karaoke world goes I guess.
Remember that Wednesday nights is Karaoke Night at the Owl Bar. I should also plug they have poker tournaments on Thursdays starting at 7pm. No money, a point system, but the winner could potentially play in the world series of poker!!!
