Best Of 2018

A novel approach to the sing-along staple, Sexy Time Live Band Karaoke exchanges backing tracks for a full band of veteran Cincinnati rockers who are missing just one thing: a lead singer. During their karaoke “concerts,” you take the microphone and bring all the pomp, swagger and drunken falsetto to the stage while they play your song selection live. With a working catalog of more than 300 tunes ranging from Bowie to Beyoncé (they even know a little Country), the Sexy Time band offers up their expertise and insane internal library of songs for you to “use as a vehicle to drive on the Autobahn of your musical fame and fortune.” Singing The Cranberries’ “Zombie” in the back room of the Northside Tavern (usually on the first Saturday of the month) may not directly translate to fame, fortune and a record deal, but it’s certainly one of the more indulgent ways to live your egocentric Rock star fantasies in the real world. And all for no cover charge. You can also book the band for private events in need of some karaoke sexing up, like weddings. Sexy Time Live Band Karaoke,
