If you are looking for a different and more relaxed evening of party
entertainment, why not try hiring
Klassic Karaoke from Silver Pines Sound
& Light. A karaoke evening is great fun for all ages from 8 to 80, and has
become increasingly popular with the rise of TV reality shows such as The
X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent, and growing interest in choirs and
"Karaoke’s Not For Me"
Despite the perception that you have to be a great a singer like Pavarotti
or Katherine Jenkins, in actual fact anyone can get up and perform and
receive a huge round of applause. It really isn’t about musical ability,
but joining in and having a really good time. Sometimes the worst singers
actually get the best response!
We often hear comments from guests that they would never have the courage
to get up and sing in front of an audience and we quite understand this
reticence. However, if you do get a little nervous, we recommend joining
in with a small group to perform together. This way no-one is singled out
and creates a tremendous team spirit. Normally, after getting over their
initial qualms, we find those same people are actually keen to get back on
stage time after time. There is also no need to worry about being drowned
out if you are performing with stronger singers as we are able to move
voices up or down in the mix as appropriate. We can also adjust the pitch
and key in which the music is played if the default doesn’t suit your
Klassic Karaoke can be set up in very small or large spaces, as the event
dictates. We can comfortably operate in a someone’s living room, the bar
of a small pub or equally well in a hall or function suite. As with our
discos, we have equipment to pretty much meet every eventuality and simply
scale it to the venue and your requirements.
Karaoke nights can be as simple as just a monitor on which to show the
lyrics and a set of microphones and speakers to play the music through or
can be dressed up to make it a real event, with stage lighting, star cloth
backdrops, screens for the audience and haze to bring the lighting to
life. We commonly supply two wireless microphones for an evening but have
up to four wireless and four corded microphones available at any time. Why
not try a “Stars in Your Eyes” evening and ask your guests to dress up as
their favourite stars and then perform their hits?
Why not give us a try – you’re bound to have fun!
We are happy to provide karaoke for all ages, we have had singers as
young as 6 years old taking part – the only requirement being that they
are able to read the lyrics off the screen and know the tune!
Klassic Karaoke can be supplied as a standalone event or be included as an
added dimension to a disco. One other side benefit of a holding a karaoke
evening is that, dependent upon set-up, it can be a more cost-effective way
of providing entertainment for your guests. And if you don’t want one of
our karaoke hosts to be there or you fancy becoming the host yourself, we
offer the option of simply hiring karaoke equipment
and discs from our hire section.
Our library consists of well over 6,000 songs in a huge range of different

– we carry a huge range of Elvis songs including the almost legendary 27
CD set of Velvet Elvis recordings covering virtually every song he
performed both on record and live.
All of our music is available at the click of a mouse due to state of the
art software and is also categorised by genre as well as song title and
artist. It is therefore easy for us to theme the evening around a specific
style if you so wish. We have extensive collections of Country, Rock,
Indie, Movie Soundtracks and Showtunes along with a wide range of
Standards and Irish themed music. We even carry a selection of old-time
The songs are all listed in our songbook, copies of which are distributed
amongst the guests during the evening making it easy for them to choose
what they want to sing. A PDF copy of our current book is available to
download by clicking on the image of the songbook cover alongside.
