A longtime favorite on the NYC karaoke scene, RSK has played all over town, fostering a party atmosphere everywhere it goes. Superstar hostess Kelly Cooper has been known to ask for volunteers to try their luck at a randomly selected song for something called the Rock Star Karaoke Challenge, so have a few drinks. Stadium-rock staples by Creedence, Black Sabbath and—of course—Journey are all on the group’s playlist, made up of rock, country, blues and classic hits. While it’s totally free to belt out a number, tips for the players are encouraged. Go to rockstarkaraokenyc.com for more information.
