A suggestion then, since people feel there needs to be more anime music, how about for every 1 english song, there has to be three or four japanese songs sung, either the english version of the song, or the orignal japanese. Could that help out?
I do Agree that there needs to be more Anime music available and set up a link for Suggestion for those selections, I won't tell people what they can or can't sing. I can adjust the sign up list(it Digital you can move names up or down the list) for a more balanced ratio, For instance Place a anime song then an American, then a J-pop, then a video game one. Again only if people are singing them.
If you didn't want to do the two lines suggestion what else would work is having like from a certain time to a certain time planned for all anime/game songs and then the other time to another time (later on in the night) non anime songs (though the lines would make more sense so anyone could go whenever.)
Yeah the two line thing is not necessary for us, it a digital list we can move songs around when needed
Again with the 24 hour type karaoke (which I should rename the Karaoke Parlor
) set up we are planning there might be time for just an anime only block, Again details would need to be worked out.
Hyatt main ballroom. Nuff said.
That would be awesome but I doubt it, see below. However the Karaoke Parlor might very well be set up in the Hyatt.
Didn't attend this year, but my friend said that the selection of anime music was extremely disappointing. So I thought I'd pass that along as a suggestion to bump that up.
And Again I open to music selections, link above
I would also very much hype a Japanese only karaoke as this is an anime convention. Not that every song has to be in Japanese, but should be related to jpop, jrock, anime, video games, or something else along those lines. As cool as it is to get up there and sing Journey, I can do that in any karaoke bar in America
Really don't want to get into this debate however, I am just state this now.
The Main Karaoke Event which we name Karaoke Madness is run as counter programing to the dances. We need to fill the Embassy ballroom and we do.
At Midwest Karaoke Madness we believe that all music is welcome,all people are welcome
that will never change. Will we get more anime music yes and the Ratio of American to Anime music will even out. Right now it is about a 2 to 1 ratio (again i have more files to upload before i get the final count)
In fact, A good reason we have a open to all music, is not everyone sang at karaoke before, Some people don't go to bars(to young or not there thing) or do not have the machines. Other are not anime fans but Moms and dad looking for something to do.
we had a older gentleman Friday night who came to ACen with his Daughter and came to the Karaoke Event looking for something to do. He enjoyed himself and got up and sang Breakfast at Tiffany's and thanked us.
That made my night.
