Karaoke at Billy McHales

In Federal Way, Washington, there's this restaurant called Billy McHales. I was called in to do karaoke on a Saturday night. First I had to find the place. So I found it, why? How? My Mom and her friend went there early to have dinner and pretty much talked me in from the freeway. Yay Mom!
On that happy note, after parking my car, I unload my discs and head inside to warm up the equipment.
The stuff is fine, they've just got the speakers set up facing each other. Singers are forced to sing between the speakers and the microphones end up pointing at one or the other speaker too frequently. This as you know causes feedback. A nightmare for a karaoke show. I cannot move the speakers, I'm just subbing, but, we did the best we could. We do the best we can with what we have available. We did have fun.
Got some great pictures posted on the Tacoma Karaoke Meetup Board (and some not so great ones). We had visitors from California determined to have a ball, so we showed them a great time. Now part of their vacation is online. Gee, I hope they like those pictures.
