Come on down to Fanclub for Live Band Karaoke and have every preconceived notion of traditional karaoke thrown out the window.
Every Monday night from 9 p.m. to 1:30 a.m., you have the opportunity to sing your heart out with cover band, The Naturals. This is the only live band karaoke in Vancouver that offers this sort of experience, and we all secretly, and some of us not so secretly (you know who you are), love the spotlight. The Naturals are the heart of this weekly event, with Eddie Lam Halen on voice, guitar and keys, Jarrett Plett on drums, and Justin Brown on bass. The Naturals bring their talent, flexibility and passion every Monday. Their repertoire spans over 150 popular songs covering a vast range of genres. Eddie, Jarrett and Justin seamlessly connect with anyone who comes on stage, and no matter their style there is an instant connection, a natural one. I had a chance to speak with some of the regulars, and what they love most about Live Band Karaoke at Fanclub is the band. Getting on stage can be a scary venture for some, but The Naturals always back you up.
If there is a particular song that you would like to sing that isn’t already on the list, The Naturals will learn it for you, as long as if you give them several days notice. You can find all the details on the newly launched website at www.livekaraoke.ca where you can find photos, videos, and a form to subscribe for other sweet updates about this weekly event. But in all honesty, just go and give it a shot, you know you want to. Plus Fanclub is such a gorgeous venue. It’s the perfect spot for some Monday night responsible drinking, singing and dancing. Yes, if you don’t like to sing then you will have every reason to dance. There is something for everyone at Live Band Karaoke, and this is a message that The Naturals and Ian Is, the event coordinator, would like to remind anyone who feels a little timid when karaoke comes into question. It’s not about being a pro, it’s about the experience and having fun. I myself am a regular and I love seeing the familiar faces. So, what are you waiting for? The stage awaits!!
It’s not uncommon for Live Band Karaoke enthusiasts to take the stage along with their musical talents (such as guitar or piano shown below).
