What is karaoke? It is a form of entertainment, offered typically by bars and clubs, in which people take turns singing popular songs into a microphone over prerecorded backing tracks.

Sweet Springs Saloon in Los Osos is just the place to go to hear local folks belt it out as the saying goes.
Personally, I can’t sing nor would I attempt it – even in the shower.

After attending several karaoke events, I’ve come to realize that everyone loves to sing especially around the holidays when Christmas carols can be heard everywhere. My complaint is that the songs people sing at karaoke are unrecognizable to many in the audience. Once in while by request a singer will belt out an oldie.

Sweet Springs Saloon, 990 Los Osos Valley Road, has karaoke nights Tuesday and Friday from nine until midnight.
