Street Side Karaoke

Everyone has a favorite song they know by heart - but would they sing it on the street? Let’s find out! The Street Side Karaoke project is karaoke with a new twist: it’s portable, spontaneous, and most importantly, street side. The project combines singing - traditionally an intimate, indoor activity - with the growing busking + music scene in Pittsburgh in a form everyone can participate in: karaoke.

Inspired by CMU opera students and their “Bus Stop Opera” project (http://bit.ly/1rD77Rs), Street Side Karaoke brings music and entertainment to Pittsburgh in an even more accessible and family-friendly form by allowing people to participate, not just listen!

In order to bring Street Side Karaoke to fruition, I need Awesome PGH’s help! Right now, Street Side Karaoke is just an awesome idea, but it needs funding to purchase the materials to make it a reality.

With Awesome PGH’s grant, Street Side Karaoke will purchase the screen, microphones, speaker, and Karaoke software subscription. The entire outfit will then be mounted to the side of a vibrantly yellow Honda Fit (no purchase necessary) so the sing-along experience can pull up to any street corner and immediately bring joy into people’s lives (see attachment).

Not only can Awesome PGH make Street Side Karaoke a reality, your funding will also make it a free-ality. That’s right, unlike traditional Karaoke DJs, Street Side Karaoke will provide that 100% Natural Good-Time Family-Karaoke Solution at absolutely no cost to the singer! With Awesome PGH’s help, it will be absolutely free.

So, in the immortal words of the Beatles: “Won’t you please, please help me!”

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Street Side Karaoke - now karaoke can come to you!
