Karaoke is all about crowd participation — it's just no fun if folks aren't fist pumping as you butcher "Separate Ways," right? You'll never have to worry about that at Just John. Karaoke veteran or verse virgin, you'll be surrounded by divas, drag queens and the rest of Dorothy's friends, and they'll shake a tail feather to every damn word you sing. Go ahead and try some Whitney Houston that's way out of your range — teh gayz will yell "G'on, gurl!" until you confidently hit that big-ass key change in "I Will Always Love You." Got something more obscure in mind? The KJs from Rendezvous Entertainment have one of the largest song collections in town and are bound to have your craving (or they can obtain it for next time). Pro tip: If you're among the first two people to submit song requests on a Tuesday night, you'll get to perform back-to-back songs. For that alone we'll attempt some Mariah Carey dog squeals.
