Sign up for All Ages karaoke will begin five minutes before the doors open. Sign up will be done via a QR code that will be made available by the co-host to those waiting for the doors to open. 

The room will be cleared five (5) minutes before 18+ karaoke begins. Those that wish to participate may sign up for 18+ at that time.

Once the doors open the singing will get started right away and additional sign ups will be available via a QR code posted on the door and a QR code located at the host’s table.

The host table will be located at the front of the room to allow for MCing and Microphone distribution.
