This is not ordinary karaoke, this is DANCE KARAOKE! As you sing your karaoke heart out, DJ Purple immerses the space with beautiful colorful gobo lights that he adjusts just for you, a rainbow of fog mist included, plus back-up vocals, and will summon his sexy saxophone, harmonica, and/or MORE cow bell as required. You'll look like a star (and sound like one), so sing and dance with passion and enjoy making new friends!
DJ Purple dishes on how he crafts the karaokiness into his amazing shows:
"'Dance Karaoke' means high energy! Awesome intelligent stage lighting and pyrotechnic-like special effects make you feel like you're the star of a real concert! When DJ Purple brings out his trademark live saxophone on an instrumental break, you'll feel like you've got a real band backing you up!
When we say 'high energy,' we mean continuous high energy! Instead of that pause and drop in momentum after every song that you'll experience at ordinary karaoke shows, we mix directly from one singer to the next, like a DJ, so your party's energy stays high and the excitement builds higher with every song and singer!
The final ingredient of 'high energy' is the song book! With ordinary karaoke, one single guest picking the wrong sad, slow song can literally kill your entire party! Each and every one of the thousands of songs in our 'Dance Karaoke' song book has been carefully curated to be lively and upbeat, designed to get everyone dancing while you sing!"
DJ Purple received the illustrious "Best DJ" award in SF Weekly's 2011 Readers' Choice and was noted in the same zine as the Emperor of Karaoke.
DJ Purple was also coined in SFist as "a one-man backing band."
