Group: Residencies

So… “Sweet Transvestite”?

Yeah. We struggle with this one. It’s problematic, and absolutely antiquated, but for a huge number of folks Rocky Horror Picture Show was their first introduction to any non-hetero identity and we’re uncomfortable erasing that. And so it remains in the catalog. Don’t be surprised if your KJ has something to say about it on…

I didn’t get to sing!

I promise, we’re as sad about it as you are! We want everyone to sing as many songs as they can, but our venues do have a hard cut-off. Our hosts always read off the names of upcoming singers for the last hour of our shows, so if you want to squeeze in a song…

It’s my friend’s birthday/anniversary/special event!

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Let us know as soon as you arrive and we’ll plan for a little something special for them, time permitting. We can’t bump you or them up the list, though– we want everyone to have a good time!

Here’s a $20. Bump me up the list!

Sorry, we don’t do that. No offense to those karaoke hosts who do, but we adhere to a first-come, first-served policy.

What’s the deal with R.Kelly?

This is Chicago. We don’t sing R.Kelly in Chicago.
