Karaoke Scene is once again very proud to present “the season’s biggest singing competition,” SongBurst at the Soboba Casino, “where winning is just the beginning.” We are also excited to have our 2 favorite Inland Empire radio stations on board for this event as well, X103.9, KCXX (The X)…an alternative rock radio station based out of San Bernardino and 101.3 KATY (The Mix)…an adult contemporary radio station based out of the Temecula Valley. These are great folks to work with and to help make “SongBurst at Soboba” such a fabulous event.
The excitement begins on Monday, February 27th and continues every Monday for 4 weeks. There will be thousands in cash and prizes with $2,500 cash for first place awarded at the finals. Not only that, but there will be more prizes raffled off during the competitions for which all in attendance (competitors and audience alike) will be eligible.
These competition Mondays will be great fun for everybody. There is plenty to do at Soboba Casino so drive down early, relax and have a great time!

Karaoke kongratulations!!! Three time KJ of the Year winner for Orange County, Donna Thomas has raised over $27,000, a phenomenal amount of money, for the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles during her annual gala fundraiser at the TomKat Lounge in Buena Park. Karaoke Scene salutes Donna Thomas and all of the many folks who unselfishly give so much of their time and money every year to help these children who need it so much.
Finally, at this special time of year, it is good for all of us to reflect on the many blessings we receive but take for granted. Try to do a kindness to someone who may need a little boost. Take a step back and maybe let another person have their way about something. Try sharing the gifts of “love and kindness, warm hearts and an outstretched hand of tolerance” this holiday season. Do this, and it will surely come back to you many times over.
All of us at Karaoke Scene Magazine wish you the happiest of holidays and a prosperous, song-filled New Year!
