FAQs

Q. What is Karaoke?
Karaoke (car-ah-o-key) loosely translated means “empty orchestra”. It is essentially a song that is played with the lead vocals removed so the karaoke singer may perform it instead of the original artist.

Q. How did this all get started?
Karaoke is believed to have originated in a small bar in Japan. The in-house band recorded their music onto tape, and if they were not there the singer would just sing along to the tape. The word Karaoke was written on the tape, Kara meaning missing and Oke meaning band or orchestra.

 

Q. What is the fun of Karaoke?
Karaoke is making anyone the singing star they have always wanted to become. In KBox, you can have the same music playing in the background from your favorite professional group, while you sing the lyrics. Don’t know the words? No problem. Karaoke sound tracks allow the lyrics to scroll across the screen of a standard TV. Now, anyone can be a star!

 

Q. How do I get to sing?
Choose your favorite songs either from the song book or the computerised Karaoke System. Every song has its own songcode, input the singcode into the system using the Remote Control and then the song will play automatically on screen for your to sing.

 

Q. I’m afraid people will make fun of me because I don’t sing very well.
