A Little Note From Ozz...
I wanted to say, make sure you are my friend on Facebook, this is the best way to keep up with the day to day minute by minute happenings. CLICK HERE to do that now.
If you are getting duplicate e-mails, let us know, and let us know which ones to delete and will do it for you.
We want to keep this site alive and growing, you can help by from time to time Google and Yahoo search “Karaoke in Albuquerque” and clicking on the site. This is how websites get to the top of their listings, and then when someone is looking for a place to sing from out of town, they will most likely find us. Also if you know of any businesses that would like to help support the site financially we have ads for as low as $10 per month, or they can sponsor with gift certificates to make singing in Albuquerque so much more fun and interesting.
There are some venues I can't get to every month and therefore are not reported on the report card or the review page. These are Boop, Moriarty and Ten Pins. If you would like to do this let us know, just use the "Contact Us" form to the left.
Also, visit the website every day. It changes everyday, literally. Tell your freinds, and when you visit a new venue, PLEASE tell the KJ and the server you saw it on Call Me Ozz
We are looking forward to another awesome week in karaoke, have fun and be safe!

CMO GOES NORTH-COWGIRL BBQ & KARAOKE
Last Monday I paid a visit to a Santa Fe karaoke venue that I have not been to in about 5 years....it hasn't changed a bit. Cowgirls has karaoke every Monday night from 8-Midnight and it get's busy. The crowd is of the typical Santa Fe downtown crowd.We have also added a Santa Fe section to the Find A Place to sing page. CLICK HERE to check it out.
HARD ROCK GONE-ISLETA BACK-SO IS KARAOKE!
With all the rules Hard Rock put in place it was no fun to do karaoke there, hence it was gone because no one would come. Isleta has brought it back and you can find KJ DraZtik taking it over from Andrew from Star Karaoke, every Tuesday night from 9pm-1am.
FOX N HOUND KILLED KARAOKE...AGAIN
Fox N Hound sent a corporate memo to Albuquerque on the day they were supposed to have karaoke and cancelled it, again. I believe this is the third time. I think this place hold the record for starting and cancelling more times than any other venue, there have been 4 companies that I know of. Hopefully not again.
MALARKY'S BRINGS BACK KARAOKE ON MONDAYS
A while back, Malarky's cancelled karaoke on Monday's with Broken Eardrumz. Last week they brought it back with KJ DraZtik. She is there every Monday from 9pm-Close.
Hooligans has cancelled karaoke on Tuesday's and Friday's in preparations for it's new awakening. According to Steve the owner, Hooligans will completely undergo a renovation and re-open as a dance club with DJ Music next year.
It's been a bit of confusion at Sidelines lately as to when they have karaoke and when they don't, but I do believe we have it figured out. It's on Mondays and Tuesdays with KJ Koz and on Thursdays with Stew Dizzle.
THERE'S A NEW KID IN TOWN...AT FIESTA'S
Last Friday Zack, the Z portion of TnZ Karaoke resigned from Fiesta's. A new guy from New York, Matt, owner of Musicology has taken their place. He can be found there every Friday and Saturday night from 9pm-1am.
YES, NO MAYBE SO? SPEAKEASY ON THURSDAYS
Karaoke at Speakeasy was cancelled, then brought back with Allen Estrada. Speakeasy is located in the back of Leo's Nightclub on 12th & Candelaria. Karaoke every Thursday night from 9pm-1am.
MOOSELODGE IN BELEN-ON FRIDAY'S
Charles, probably the oldest KJ in Albuquerque can be found at the Moose Lodge in Belen on Friday nights. I have not been there yet, but he is there and there is karaoke on Friday nights there.
FUNDRAISER KARAOKE CONTEST NOVEMBER 12th
Geckos and Live Mic Entertainment will be hosting a karaoke contest on November 12th to benefit Christopher Fletcher, returning back to Albuquerque after Chemotherapy. For all the details CLICK HERE.
The two year project is finally at the point, ready for passengers! Starting the week of November 25th, up to 3 passengers will be able to ride with Ozz as he ventures from one venue to the next. On the nights passengers are permitted, 2 can ride in the back, one shotgun.
The van is equipped with an on board karaoke machine with 450 watts of power, a disco ball and ice cold beverages. You will be picked up and dropped off at your residence as long as it is within 15 minutes of the first venue to be visited. There is no charge however there will be a required gratuity of $20 for non members and $15 for members for the back, $15 for non members and $10 for members riding shotgun.(Have fun and not get a DUI)
You will be able to sing a song on the way to the first venue, second venue and on the way home. You are also required to spend at least $6 per venue. Other rules and regulations will also be in place.
Once a month, there will be a trip to Dad’s Diner in Moriarty, Hollywood Casino in San Felipe and The Palace in Santa Fe. These trips will be an additional $5 per person.
The page to sign up will be available November 25th.
THE CALL ME OZZ VAN IS UP AND RUNNING!
A few months back I asked the question on Facebook, should Call Me Ozz become a sponsor only site? The response was overwhelmingly yes. As much as I think it should also be I have weighed the pros and cons and decided not to make it a sponsor only site, and continue doing it the way I always have. There will always be the courtesy listings for free, however there will always be enhanced listings available to the venue that support the karaoke community through this site and ones that want more karaoke business. Every venue that is enhanced is seeing results from their listing.
One reason for this decision is that, I do this as a service to the singers first and to people coming to Albuquerque that has no idea where to go. Marketing analysis already proves that people looking for a place to sing will 90% be more likely to visit the venue that has enhanced their listing. Even though I prefer you support the sponsors that support Call Me Ozz and you, I believe it is only fair to show the whole karaoke picture, not just part of it. Also, this would open the door for a competitor to open a karaoke website that would show all listings and therefore make Call Me Ozz obsolete.
If you are wondering, just how much does it cost to enhance a listing, here’s the numbers right now. (They will be doubling after January 1st). It’s $100 per night that they list for the LIFETIME of the website. Let’s say it lasted 2 years, or 24 months. That would only be $4.12 per month. Meaning all it takes is one new customer per month to buy one drink and it has paid for itself. If you are a venue reading this and would like to enhance your listing, or if you are a singer, in with a venue owner, please help us to get more enhancements before the rates go up.
Call Me Ozz has always been dedicated to the singers first, this is just another proof that it will remain that way.
