Josh Sitron & Friends' Family Request Room: Live Piano Karaoke & Sing-Along

February 23, 2020
$6 General (Members $5)

End Winter Break on a high note! Join Josh Sitron and special guest song-leaders for this live piano karaoke and sing-along like no other: one part singalong, one part karaoke, one part improv comedy. Josh takes YOUR song requests, whose chords and lyrics are then projected for all to see! (Great reading practice!)  Come up to the mic, singalong with the crowd, or even suggest songs anonymously by putting a slip of paper in the magic hat. All songs attempted!

Bring the kids, the friends, the in-laws; anybody who likes to sing or needs a smile.  You do not have to be a ‘good’ singer - the key is to have fun.  (And as we say at the Request Room: “Anyone can be a Bob Dylan!”) Super fun & supportive atmosphere for all ages; come for some or all.

When not tickling the ivories, Josh composes and produces music for Nickelodeon and Disney among others, at his studio 13 Queen in Northampton.
