#175 [Other] Karaoke
Closed: Talk Not Scheduled 2 years ago by abompard. Opened 2 years ago by abompard.

  1. What is your proposal?

I would like to organize a karaoke party for an evening event at Flock. I did one in 2008 and it went OK, minus a few roadbumps (see below).
I'll bring my laptop with the software (it's opensource), songs and a couple microphones.
It can last for as long as the room stays open. Midnight would be great, more is possible, and I'll accomodate with less.

  1. Who in addition to the speaker needs to be in the room for this to succeed? This could be the audience you need to reach, other participants in the conversation, or other stakeholders.

At least 3 people I'd say, but noone in particular. No singing skills needed, just a desire to sing.

  1. Is this a…
  • Evening or other activity (please describe duration in #1)
  1. Anything else we need to know?

I will need the following:

  • a dedicated room (this can be one of the conference rooms)
  • a videoprojector with HDMI input
  • a sound system I can plug into (please tell me which plug I'll need, I have tons of adapters but I'd rather not bring them all on the plane)
  • if it's possible to turn off some of the lights in the room, it'd be great. Some nice lighting would definitely be a plus if we have some available already.
  • snacks and drinks depending on the timeslot

Also, @lbazan had an idea while planning #167 to include non-English songs for a karaoke evening activity. Once the scheduling is decided, y'all could link up with each other and find a way to collaborate on this together. :grinning:

Sure, I already have quite a few non-English songs. Mostly French but also some German (alright alright I admit it's mainly Rammstein) and a few others.

I'm very sorry to announce that for budget reasons I won't be able to attend Flock this year, so I'm cancelling this proposal. Have fun!
