Karaoke's #1 feature
I have attended many a karaoke the last 13 years and even been a compere for one of those. To me, the #1 feature of a karaoke is the professionalism of the KJs; meaning; not only working to give your audience the best night out they can have & getting songs queued efficiently and having as good a sound mix as you can manage but also being able to deal with problems that arise. Drunk or belligerent customers for example. It's tricky to not get them offside unless you have that professional streak. No, not ''running nude for money,'' DIPLOMACY! Fight break outs, song interruptions or whatever; a professionally run gig will get me back no matter the issues of crowd size, etc (but a good song list helps).
