Eyes on the Go and GANDER.tv Launch Live Band Karaoke with O’Flanagan’s on the Upper East Side in Manhattan
NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Eyes on the Go, Inc. (AXCG) has launched a new entertainment segment of live band karaoke with the implementation of the GANDER.tv broadcasting system at O’Flanagan’s on First Avenue at 65(th) Street in Manhattan.
Live Band Karaoke is a popular event where people sing karaoke with a live band in front of an audience. Much like traditional karaoke, people choose a song from a list of available songs, sign up, and sing when it is their turn. The difference is that instead of a pre-recorded background track, the singers perform with a live backup band.
Because traditional karaoke uses keyboard synthesizers to approximate the sound of the original track, many people find the background tracks to sound somewhat ‘cheesy.’ Live karaoke bands sound like the real deal. For those who yearn to have that Rock Star Experience, performing with a live band is like a dream come true.
CBS Channel 2 in their Best of New York series named O’Flanagan’s as one of the 5 best live band karaoke bars in NYC stating, “This is a great spot for beginners wanting to get their feet wet.” One of the featured bands at O’Flanagan’s, The Human Karaoke Experience, was rated by Time Out New York as America’s #1 live karaoke bands.
O’Flanagan’s provides entertainment five nights a week with other performers and featured DJ’s. According to Rossa Quinn, General Manager, “The GANDER.tv system is allowing us to broaden our reach by broadcasting these events from our bar over the Internet. We see this as an important initiative to expand our brand awareness and increase traffic. We are impressed with the features of live streaming and then recording segments for playback during off times. This keeps interesting content on our dedicated section of the GANDER.tv web 24 by 7. The GANDER.tv approach of broadcasting only professional content and focusing on the entertainment industry was a key factor in our decision to go with GANDER.”
Amie Sepaniak, the Sales Manager for Eyes on the Go, adds, “We decided early on that the karaoke market in NYC would be a great place for us to find interesting and unique content. O’Flanagan’s is one of the premier bars in New York and features some of the top performers in this space. We are looking forward to bringing in traffic from web browsers checking out the scene at O’Flanagan’s as well as amateur performers looking back at their session from the previous night.”
