What you need is your smartphone, a microphone, a speaker, and an app.
All home parties look more or less the same (unless it’s a themed party, you’ve got to love those): you arrive at somebody’s house, drink and eat, watch a couple of unfortunate souls dance all by themselves half of the evening, talk to a couple of your friends (while avoiding others), and leave at some point in the night. Of course, there’s always that one person who shouts out “karaoke time!” at almost every single party and you think “hey, that’s a good idea”, but what you lack is the equipment needed for you to sing your favourite 70s and 80s hits.
Let’s face it – a karaoke machine can be quite pricey, and you don’t really want to invest into one so that you could have karaoke nights every other month. But, the solution comes in the form of your smartphone and a couple of accessories, and we’ve got you covered. Here’s what you require for an awesome karaoke night with friends:
1. A Portable Karaoke Mic
What is it? A dream gadget for anyone who loves to sing.
Why should you get it? It’s small, easy to carry around, and can be connected to both iOS and Android devices. With one of these mics in your bag or backpack, you can also start an impromptu karaoke session whenever you want.
2. A Speaker for Real Rock Stars
Let your voice be heard!
What is it? The AeroSkull Bluetooth Speaker is a perfect addition for all karaoke aficionados: it looks cool, it produces fantastic sound, and you can even use it to take hands-free calls.
Why should you get it? Because Hamlet himself would be jealous of this speaker.
3. Get This Party Started with a Karaoke App
There’s a myriad of karaoke apps out there, Android and iOS alike, and it’s up to you to choose which one works for you the best. Sing!Karaoke is one of them – with a catalogue of over 1,300 songs (from “All About That Bass” to “Eye of the Tiger”) and the ability to record your performances, this app is hard to resist. Although Sing! is free, to make the most out of it, you’ll probably have to opt for a few in-app purchases.
Other popular karaoke apps: Yokee, Red Karaoke, StarMaker.
