It's your time to shine...

616 Grand Productions and PJ DA DJ Sound & Entertainment has collaborated to host their first Karaoke Showdown -- a fun, interactive, and competitive event that will showcase Grand Rapids' local amateur and novice karaoke talent.

Contestants, will compete for the 1st place cash prize winning of $250. Now, while we don't recommend the winner quit their day job, they will walk away rich in pride, bragging rights and enough cash to put some gas in their tank and food in their fridge for the week!

So, if you've found your way to this site, then I am guessing you have some interest in attending, which is great. We need to fill the room with good people like yourself.  So, please help spread the word and share this event info with your family, neighbors, colleagues, friends, and your friend's friends.

This will be a night to remember. You'll experience great food, awesome entertainment, music and dancing.  What better way to spend your Memorial Day Eve anyway than with us; especially when you don't have to work the next morning (well, most us). 

We hope to see you there. To purchase your ticket as a spectator or to secure a spot as a contestant, click on the button below.

Live - Interactive - The People's Choice

The event is intended to be fun and lively, so while we may have a few advanced karaoke singers in the showdown, we decided not to take ourselves too serious by seeking out professional judges. Instead, the audience (that's you) will participate in an interactive voting experience. As mentioned above, every vote counts.
