We are pleased and proud to announce that KaraokeFest 2002 will take place on Sunday, May 19th on board the world famous “Queen Mary” in Long Beach. This promises to be the biggest and most exciting “Fest” ever. Our staff has spent a lot of time, and we are expending a great deal of resources toward making this a most memorable event.
There will be many new wrinkles this time including the first ever “Karaoke Golden Achievement Awards”, honoring venues and individuals throughout Southern California for outstanding contributions to Karaoke and excellence in their fields of endeavor. The recipients of these prestigious awards will be selected by region-wide voting both at the local club level and also on-line at www.karaokefest.com.
The “KJ of the Year” competition has been totally transformed and revitalized. The new format will honor KJs from five separate areas of Southern California and the voting will be done in the same manner as the “Karaoke Golden Achievement Awards” described above.
We are planning a large and exciting “KaraokeFest Expo”, where vendors of all kinds will be exhibiting their products and services. You will be able to check out the latest Karaoke software and hardware as well as experience the products and services from exhibitors of other realms of endeavor. It should make for a jolly good time for all. If you are interested in reserving a booth at “KaraokeFest Expo” please contact Denise Barnum at (562) 879-5632. Call now for the best locations!
