Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)
The Live Karaoke Band joins us at City Center as they prepare for their 16th Annual Show coming up on February 27 at Boomerangs. The show is from 7-10pm, it’s free to get in!
We could have never imagined the journey we’ve been on leading up to this show. From our humble beginnings as The Cheesy Trio playing small clubs, to packing bars in C/U, to performing at The United Center to 20,000 Blackhawks fans each night (48 times!), to watching people face-plant off the stage, wet themselves, puke into beer bottles, get engaged, hold auditions at our shows… it just boggles the mind.
We will be donating all of our tips, and accepting donations to benefit Developmental Services Center to commemorate this historic milestone!
Join us for another installment of the greatest thing to happen to karaoke since the invention of MP3s, and remember – don’t just party like a rockstar… BE A ROCKSTAR!!
7-10pm, no cover
