5 Places to Sing Your Heart Out in Greensburg
Got the itch to sing? Whether you’re looking to strum your guitar and try out the new song you wrote or you just get the urge to belt out some Bon Jovi once you’ve had a few too many, we have 5 spots to get on stage.
Karaoke was originated in Japan, being a form of entertainment where an amateur singer sings along with recorded instrumental music. The karaoke machine was first introduced in the 70’s, but didn’t catch much attention. It wasn’t until the 80’s that the karaoke machine finally began to hit off. The machine gave people the chance to gather in a small, private room where guests were offered to order food and drinks. After that, the rest is history.
If you’re looking for a single piece of advice to guide you through life – never skip out on karaoke. Look at it this way, Karaoke gives you a liberating chance to make an idiot out of yourself, in a glorious way. Chances are you’ll get the entire bar to join in and you’ll end up a rockstar for the evening. Keep your drink in one hand and the microphone in the other, that’s the sole reason why God gave you two hands! Check out these local bars in Greensburg that offer open mic/karaoke.
