I appreciate the acknowledgement of me included that picture, but I'm not really in the business. I haven't hosted a show in about 2 years now, and when I was hosting, it was only for a brief period of time (with occasional fill-ins for other KJs). But, when I was doing a show, I always did give it my all.

My appreciation, Alan. They would be the same guys I'd pick as well (me exluded). :) They’re the ones who helped me tremendously to succeed in the business. But I would be remiss if I (we) did not include RLC. I think he’s more deserving than me to be up there in the honor roll. :wink:

Thank you Brian. We need to do something about the RLC situation. OK, scroll back up to the top.

I should also note that even though I appreciate the shout out, I don't do much hosting myself these days. I have determined that it is easier for me to be the floater to fill in for folks when they need a night off then to try to keep someone in reserve. I may host 1-2 times a month right now.

We still do 24 shows a week and run 7 nights a week and I think we do a pretty good job of it. But I have to give the credit to the phenomenal hosts that work with me because they do the real work every night.

Thank you Alan & Brian, although I guess I too am no longer an active host.
My 10+ year run at the same establishment has come to an end due to the establishment owners health issues (cancers-2 different types) and questions concerning the future of the establishment. (long story so I won't go into it here)
At this point in time I have no interest in seeking a new "gig".
I turned 61 a few months back, retired early from my full time job 01-01-2014 and am going to wind down karaoke and DJing as well.
I believe I did my last wedding this past weekend...if I can learn to say no.
I will still do some private parties, Anniversaries & Birthdays...if I choose to.
Time to just go out with the wife and friends and sing and enjoy a beer and a shot.
Also time to do some traveling and spend time with the kids and grandkids.
In the mean time I have one hell of a home karaoke system!!!

WOW, Thanks Alan. I haven't been at it as long as most of the others, but I certainly do my best to keep my customers happy, and supplied with the best music I can buy.

***Updating***

As the karaoke gods would have it, one of my hosts suddenly quit on me. Wouldn't have been a big deal, except I secured a new 5 night a week gig the same day she quit.

So I am hosting to cover her gig till I find someone to replace her and covering a couple of the nights for the new gig until the host that will be running it sorts out there schedule.
