Live Band Karaoke is starting up again at Fellini’s # 9 Restaurant every Thursday now starting next week, April 3, with the introduction of Tanya and the Rockstars, featuring guitarist Tanya Manwill, Nate West on drums, and Thomas Gunn on bass.
“Fellini’s owner Jacie Dunkle’s idea is to create a user-friendly, interactive evening with an emphasis on fun,” says Manwill. “Karoke Thursdays are geared for locals and out-of-towners who want to get together over food, drink, and song.”
Manwill says the band is developing a song list to accommodate various musical leanings and to provide a “rock star for an evening” type of experience.
“Beyond the basic Karoke list, we will be building song selections based on requests from both the audience and the vocalists,” says Manwill. ” So please come by and put a title in the suggestion box.”
Better yet, bring your talent, or mere enthusiasm, to Fellini’s on April 3. And remember, this is fun, and if you’ve ever been to one these things at Fellini’s before, you know you can get up there and belt one out and everyone will be cheering you on.
