OUR STORY

what we do

Our niche karaoke entertainment service caters to Caribbean music genres, primarily Reggae, Dancehall, Lovers Rock with a touch of Soca and is the first of it’s kind in the UK.

Frustrated by the lack of karaoke  catering to Caribbean music we adore, we decided it was time to take matters into our own hands.

Since 2014, our events bring together people of all ages, from youngsters to seniors. It’s a fun and highly entertaining event with a whole heap of vibes from the start ’til it done.

We provide our entertainment in the forms of

Monthly events in South London and ad hoc events across UK.

Spin off events with a LIVE BAND.

Private & Corporate Hire for an unforgettable experience for party guests.

Our newly launched Karaoke Card Game, also available as an online game.

“We don’t business about your singing ability. 

This is karaoke, there isn’t a recording contract on offer. 

Just take to the stage…

FREE UP, SING OUT AND ENJOY YOURSELF”

THE EVENTS

We host regular monthly events, our main residency is currently  at The Blues Kitchen in the heart of Brixton.

Also keep your eyes peeled for our other ad hoc events.

We offer a wide selection of songs not widely available in karaoke to choose from.

Singing ability is not required at our events. We don’t care how good you sound. It’s karaoke all we want you to do is take the stage and let loose. 

Our events are ticketed with limited tickets available on the door.

At our events you and your crew have the opportunity to sign up to perform throughout the night using our online performance sign up.

Our fun and fiery host Jay9 keeps the encouragement high.

The Duke of Shellington, DJ Switch co-signs your performances and keeps the energy up with riddims.

When the karaoke is done you get to enjoy the after-party.
