APPLEBEE'S in LOS LUNAS-Adds Tuesday Nights
That was fast! Altitude inside Hotel Cascada brought karaoke in with Stew Dizzle on Mondays and Thursdays for two weeks and then cancelled it. This is where I (Ozz) began singing when it was The Brio with Charles back in 2001. They have changed it though, by taking out the glass partition to the front desk it was just too loud.
The Damn Bar in Rio Rancho has brought back karaoke on Monday nights with DJ Kelly Q from Kammo's Karaoke. This should be a good night for this area as there is no other karaoke in the area on Monday nights.
Out of retirement here comes Greg. He's back every Monday night at Blackbird downtown.
THE MAIN EVENT moves to Tuesdays with Stew
The Main Event, previously Knuckleheads has moved it's karaoke night to Tuesdays with Stew Dizzle from Kammos Karaoke.
Ned's has moved their karaoke night to Thursdays and Teles, the owner of Live Mic has taken over. Ned's sponsors the Waka Kickball League, so the karaoke night revolves around their game night. After the game night they all gather at Ned's for some beer and karaoke. It's a good time, and even though there are a lot of people in the house, very few are singing.
When I checked a year ago, there were only 3 places to do karaoke in Santa Fe.....Now there are many more. Heck there are 3 in one night, on Thursdays. Call Me Ozz has page just for Santa Fe karaoke. If you are ever in the area check it out: SANTA FE KARAOKE
Kammo, owner and operator of Kammo's Karaoke and DJ Services has made it. He now has three great KJ's working for him in many venues across the city. Recently he has turned his gigs over to his latest addition, DJ Kelly Q. Read more about her below.
Most everyone I talk to and see out singing are pretty cautious about drinking and driving, and that is a great thing. Not only is very dangerous to everyone out on the road but it is very expensive and could completely destroy your life.
The good news is, you don’t have stop singing though. There are many options out there. There is the CALL ME OZZ KARAOKE VAN, which on a scheduled night will pick you up at your home*, take you to two venues in the night and bring you back, all the while singing karaoke in the van.
There is SAFE RIDE. If you have had too much to drink ask your server to call Safe Ride for you, they will take you home.
Carpool with a Designated Driver. Get your group of friends together, pitch in for gas, have a designated driver and go and have a blast!
The reality is, the venues that host karaoke have to pay for that entertainment for you, so they are expecting to sell drinks, and food to make sure they can keep it coming to you. Please sing responsibly.
DON'T DRIVE N DRIVE-BUT DD AND SING!
A couple of months ago I (Ozz) did a lot of KJ fill ins, to the point some KJ’s thought I was becoming a KJ, I was even offered a position to become a KJ. No worries, I have no intention of staying on the other side of the sound board, I love singing way to much to do that.
However, the possibility of Call Me Ozz eventually opening or managing a night club may not be to far fetched. If it did happen here is how I see it. It would be a multi entertainment venue. Each night would have a different genre of entertainment. It would feature one KJ one night, one band another night, a comedy night, a dancer/burlesque night, a theatrical night, a sport night for example; billiards, darts, foosball, etc, and just one night of rest n relaxation. It would be a constant rotation so every KJ, band, comedians, etc would have the opportunity to be featured there and I would have no problem promoting where to find them next. This would be a member’s only club.
There are plans for Call Me Ozz to eventually have offices with employees, and attached to the office will be a member’s only banquet room that we will open from time to time for all night entertainment nights and for members to use for special events.
You’ve seen Call Me Ozz blossom over the last three years….lets see where it is in three more years.

This is how the wheels on this bus go round n round...
We have two new profiles in the KJ Showcase:
Greg at Blackbird
Kelly with Kammo's Karaoke. Neither one has submitted a profile so they just have the basic one until they do.
We were very busy giving stuff away last month. We actually had to create a second circle to hold all of the winners!
Unfortunately sometimes we have to say goodbye to our great singers, friends and family. Call Me Ozz has a page dedicated to those who have left us. Visit the Rest In Peace memorial page if you know someone who should be there or if you'd like to leave a comment in one of their guestbooks. Fortunately we did not have to say goodbye to anyone last month.
Fabian has been my families trusted insurance agent for many many years, whether it's home, or auto Fabian will take care of you.
All you have to do is show up and sing a song to be entered to win!
