“Not your typical karaoke club”
For everyone with dreams of taking the stage and belting out a song as lead singer of a band, get ready for your moment in the spotlight. CityWalk's Rising Star is not your typical karaoke club. Here when you grab the mic you’re performing with a live band complete with real backup singers. Choose from an impressive number of song titles and rock out like a superstar, or croon your favorite country ballad, as you perform in front of a live audience. This Universal CityWalk bar and restaurant enhances the karaoke experience by letting you take the stage with live accompaniment. The 440-seat club has a live band to provide the music for singers Tuesday through Saturday nights. On Sundays and Mondays, the club features backup singers and prerecorded music. The band and singers are proficient in a variety of musical styles including country, rock and standards. As of September 2010, there was a $7 cover charge, but no charge to sing.
I visited Rising Star for the first time last fall. We were promptly seated in a booth on the floor area of the club. The drinks are overpriced by about 30%, but this place probably has some serious overhead they have to cover. The stage setup (lights, musicians, sound) were all top notch and kinda surprised me. I put in to belt some Journey (because really, why not?), and it took roughly an hour to get on stage. The singing experience was stupendous. The band was flawless as far as I could tell from the stage, and my only complaint was only getting to sing one song.
