Do you have a favorite karaoke brand?Posted: March 11, 2013
Over the years, hundreds of karaoke music companies have come and gone. Some were only around for a short while, others have been (or were) around for 20+ years. Some have made great music while others…..not so much.
My karaoke library has over 50 brands in it. Some of those brands are just rebrands of exactly the same music so there is really a fair amount of duplication. I have to admit though that there are a bunch of those brands I have never actually used or plan on using unless they have a song that doesn’t exist on any other brand.
I have my favorite brands:
Sound Choice – This is my go to brand for rock, classic rock, alternative, and most pop music from the 80’s on.
Chartbuster/Digitrax/Karaoke Cloud – Country, some pop music.
Pop Hits Monthly/Stellar Records – Rock, classic rock, alternative, urban and some pop music
Karaoke Version – New releases across all genres
Zoom/Sunfly/SBI – New releases across all genres
The other 45+ brands in my library could honestly be dumped and my singers probably wouldn’t miss them. They are there only because I acquired a bunch of discs in a package and ripped them in just in case there was a track that didn’t exist anywhere else.
Karaoke Hosts: Do you have a go to brand or brands that you use? Maybe you like a brand for a particular genre or time period of music?
Singers: Do you have favorite brands? Do you even notice the brands? Do you care?
