Guide to Hosting the Perfect Karaoke Party

Aug 6, 2008
There's simply no better way to entertain your family and friends for an evening than to host a karaoke party! It's fun for all, and can make happy memories of wonderful times together. Your karaoke machine is the perfect ice-breaker and will provide entertainment for hours.

Why is a karaoke party so fun? Believe it or not, there is a scientific reason for it! Singing releases endorphins into our body. Some people call these endorphins "happy hormones". In other words, they make you feel good. Add a hefty supply of these endorphins to some good food, a happy atmosphere, and some fun karaoke games, and you have a delicious recipe for party success.

Step one in planning your karaoke party is to have a karaoke machine. You can either buy a home karaoke machine, or hire a KJ, or karaoke DJ, to bring his karaoke machine. You will also want a large supply of karaoke songs for your guests to sing. A perfect solution is to get the SongStation karaoke machine. This karaoke machine automatically comes with 53,000 in-built songs. It's the size of a slim-line DVD player, and hooks up to your own TV or entertainment system. Plus it has a handy remote control to control everything at the touch of a button. It's easy, clutter free, and convenient for a great party.

Besides the karaoke machine, there are a few more things to have for your perfect party.

If you really want a festive atmosphere, you can add special effects like fog, haze, rotating disco balls, bubble-making machines, or glitter balls. You can find these at your local party supply or DJ supply center.

Location: Where the party will be held is important for a number of reasons. If you are holding an event like this at home, you run the risk of abusing the ears and gaining the dislike of your neighbors and we don't want that. Therefore, hold the event at a local bar or club. This way, you maintain good graces in the area you reside. Be sure that the club has an area with a small stage so that the singing can take place in a designated spot. Always be conscious of your budget. Some establishments seek to overcharge party planning novices and you want to avoid any debts.

What will you serve for food and drinks? A buffet with filling snacks will complement your karaoke machine much better than a formal meal. Sandwich quarters or pizzas, a veggie tray, and a fruit tray will fill the menu. Provide plenty of bottled waters to hydrate those vocal cords. Singing guests get thirsty! If you serve alcohol, also keep the coffee pot going and the food trays filled.

Don't serve dairy products, creamy drinks, or chocolate. These can produce phlegm, and make it hard for your guests to sing along with the karaoke machine. You certainly don't want them getting up to sing amid some kind of coughing fit, do you?

Another reason these guidelines will provide you with the perfect karaoke party is because everything can be prepared ahead of time, providing you the opportunity to enjoy the party as much as your guests! Just start up the karaoke machine, and let the good times roll!
