I'm getting married in Boston next month. We'd like to rent a karaoke machine instead of doing the standard DJ/dance thing.
I know that many regard DoReMi Karaoke the best place in Boston, but I called them yesterday and they said their rental karaoke machines are out of order. They asked me to call back closer to the wedding date because they don't know how quickly they'll be getting them fixed, or even if they want to.
Uh oh, I don't have any backup options! MeFi Bostonians, I need your help! [more inside]
I am trying to find a "karaoke track" for the song "Hay Una Uncion Aqui
" by Danny Berrios, which is (apparently) a Spanish language contemporary Christian song (a student of mine needs it for a talent show). I know about as much Spanish as I do contemporary Christian music, which is to say, none. [more inside]

Having attended a bunch of really fun punk rock karaoke fundraisers in DC and Baltimore, I have decided that Geek Karaoke is an idea whose time has come. I want this to be a thing, even if it means i have to figure out how to make karaoke versions of songs where none exist. The question is, though: which songs? [more inside]

I need to provide a recorded version (audio only) of The Star Spangled Banner for a bunch of patriotic middle-aged to elderly women to sing-along with at the opening ceremonies of a convention. Can anyone point me to a good version that isn't just an instrumental and isn't too showy? Whitney Houston's is probably way beyond the average vocal range for this group.

How do I hire someone in New York City that can provide a very unique service for a bachelorette party? This would involve specific timing, possibly a costume, decent voice, decent looks, heaps of charm. [more inside]
I recently received a Arirang AR-36K karaoke machine. I have hooked it up to my TV and receiver, which has ports only for stereo sound from this input. It has two ports on the front for microphones, which I've plugged in; however, the sound input from the mics isn't mixed into the sound output. I know that the input is actually happening, because the on-screen display reacts to my (terrible) singing, but it just doesn't get mixed -- and the menu option to turn up the microphone volume simply doesn't work (it gives the "command not allowed" icon whenever I press any button on the requisite screen). The hardware microphone volume knobs seem to have no effect, either. Any ideas?
Is there any software out there which can give me feedback on rhythm, timing and flow for language learning? Karaoke for Norwegian speech patterns? [more inside]
I could use some input on how I can pull off the bachelorette party I have envisioned, in New York City, in late May of this year. Keywords: fun (not raunchy), slumber party, karaoke, good food, overnight. [more inside]

Etiquettefilter: During karaoke, what's appropriate when a song contains, e.g., a racial slur? Should you sing the lyrics as written? Substitute some other term? Not sing anything?

I have a personal goal to do karaoke in the future. It's not because I enjoy making a spectacle of myself in public or want to show off my singing voice (to the contrary!), it's because I currently have severe social phobia. I think doing something that anxiety-inducing would be a great stepping stone and I'd also like to use that hopefully positive experience as a marker for how far I've come. What songs would suit an otherwise mediocre female voice that surprisingly sounds decent singing There Is A Light That Never Goes Out
by The Smiths and most of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen? I'd prefer if the songs are available on your average bar's jukebox, but feel free to suggest obscure songs. Genre does not matter.

Karaoke in Japanese. Am looking for tracks with a karaoke version on YouTube for an event. This old post

I would like to display Karaoke lyrics over a live
webcam feed. This means I might need a skype (or equivalent) plugin that plays the music & lyrics, or
find some karaoke software with the ability to display lyrics over a transparent background. (That is, to have windowless karaoke display, and run the webcam feed behind it. )
All the software (I can find) to play .CDG
(karaoke lyric standard) files forces them to be played with an image background, or over a video file. [more inside]

I've caught karaoke fever. What are my best options for a karaoke player setup at home? I'm looking for more of a karaoke box setup where participants are able to enter a number on a remote to add a song to the queue or to use a laptop to remotely add songs, rather than a bar-style KJ setup that needs maintenance. Would be interested in either software or hardware solutions <$200. I can figure out the audio, but the software options are vexing!

I am curious about karaoke musicians. What I mean by that is that I have noticed that a lot of karaoke music are re-creations of the original recordings. I am interested in the business, process, and culture of the musicians who re-create that music. We often get articles from reporters "embedded" in the entourage of a popular touring band - I was hoping that someone might recommend a feature article or book about the lives of these *ahem* unsung musicians. Thanks!
