Who’s ready for some CASINO KARAOKE and TRIVIA? Ok, you know who are! You’ll request the latest tune on the charts, or even something like “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey and wait for your turn so 20 minutes late you can dazzle (or not) an audience of friends and strangers. Well, there are places in New England Casinos that enable (oops) I mean encourage you to show your inner Katy Perry or Jason Mraz.
Where did Karaoke Come from?
According to Let’s Karaoke, “The roots of the word “karaoke” are the Japanese words “kara” meaning “empty” and “okesutora” meaning “orchestra.” Therefore, the term refers to the absence of a live band or orchestra. Karaoke can be a sing-along for one or several amateurs, who try to mimic popular professional singers.
The first karaoke machine was invented in 1971 by a Japanese drummer, named Daisuke Inoue, who leased it out to amateur singers.Throughout the 1980s, musical technology and the advent of MTV allowed for the spread of karaoke across the globe.
