Rockaraoke has always made regular karaoke seem like tiddlywinks, but the concept was flawed. For years, they’ve tried to get this idea of live band karaoke going, but the lack of a teleprompter held things back. There were bands that could play a ton of tunes, but the problem was singers had to have the lyrics memorized--and the performances wound up being a sloppy mess. But the Crocodile now has a Rockaroke band that’s figured out how to add the essential lyrics screen to aid performers, and it’s made all the difference in the world. This goes out to anyone who’s gotten to the point where regular karaoke just doesn’t deliver the same punch it used to. The band is tight and can do it all: Barry Manilow, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Emimem, The Dixie Chicks, Beyonce, you name it. JEFF ROMAN
