So last week at the Wing Nutz Karaoke show, we found out that one of the servers there had a massive fire at her home the previous weekend and she lost EVERYTHING. She literally had the clothes on her back. ( I saw pictures of her house after the fire... there was not one thing salvagable) She even lost 2 brand new puppies she recently got, and after seeing their pictures, I was even more heart broken for her. We decided to take up a collection of spare money for the evening and promised to match every penny that was donated. We ended getting about $100 from the crowd, and were grateful for every penny. The karaoke crowd in Orem is seriously one of the best I have ever associated myself with, and to think that people were so generous in a time of need makes me feel good inside. Wing Nutz and Rock The Mic Entertainment sincerely thank you all for your donations during this sad time. We know that life moves on, but having some help along the way makes things move on a lot easier.
I actually really felt for the girl, being that the childhood house I grew up in was victim to arson almost 2 years ago. I didn't live there at the time, and had most of my stuff out of there, but my father almost everything. He is still in the process of rebuilding, but hopefully it will be done soon, and after seeing the plans and what has happened, it is going to be better in the end.
Last night was one of the best shows we have had at Wing Nutz in Orem. Karaoke time came, the restaurant started to pick up and we got it going... the singers were great, the crowd was loving them, and we had a blast. Lights, Sounds, Food, Fun, and of course, Pitchers of Beer flowing like the winter run-off in the rivers of Utah this year. It was good to see so many familiar faces from the people who attended our first show. Sam, Boss, and many of the crew are coming to see us. Sam, even though I don't allow swearing, your Cee-Lo was spot on! Seriously, if you haven't been to Rock The Mic with us at Wing Nuts in Orem on Wednesday nights, get your butts OUT THERE!!! It will be awesome.
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!
