Karaoke in Ogden by Jeff Dillon at 12:26 AM

Have you ever been to one of those crazy bar places, and wondered why it was that you were suffering from such an acute, and sudden headache, and there was an odd rendition of “Bohemian Rhapsody” going on in the background, obviously the cause of said headache?

That's right...It must be karaoke night.

Karaoke, (as some say, it is Japanese for “bad singing”) seems to be growing in popularity among the local bar scene, as of late, and at the forefront of the Karaoke DJ's out there is Jackson, the Karaoke Dude.

Jackson has been in the karaoke business since 1984, and been doing so throughout the Midwestern United States. Having won several awards for KJ of the year from several publications over the years, he is certainly no stranger to the business. He is the only licensed, 100% legally certified KJ in the state of Utah, and boasts one of the largest song collections in the entire United States, and we get him HERE in Ogden,UT!

Jackson runs such an entertaining show, and has such a wonderful fan and friend base that follow him from venue to venue, that you can always count on finding a familiar face, and a good friend to sing with, no matter where you go.

While there are several places in the city of Ogden that run karaoke, it is usually at Jackson's shows that you find a fair rotation, a good service, and just about any song you could hope for.

He plays every night of the week, except for Mondays, and spends Wednesday -
Saturday in the Ogden area.

Wednesday he is at The Sandtrap 9pm - 1am, Thursday you can find him at Teazers 9pm - 1am, Friday you will find him at the new Lighthouse Lounge 9pm - 1am and Saturday he can be found rocking at the Roy Eagles FOE 8:30pm - 1am

While some of these places, as well as others have their karaoke jam on more than one night per week, you can always count on Jackson to show you a great time.

So...Lace those sneakers up, get your headbands on, come have a drink, and sing a song with Jackson. Tell him Sookie sent you. Hell, maybe we can all sing Bohemian Rhapsody together. :)
