How do you get that shy person in your group of friends to get up there and sing at the top of their lungs? Give them liquid courage, of course! Sure you might have to sacrifice yourself by getting up there and doing a duet with them, but who cares when alcohol, karaoke/open mic, and your favorite bar are involved.

Karaoke and Open Mic is the place where all voices are appreciated (somewhat) , where you can laugh, sing, and have a few great local Rhode Island beers in between. So why not share with everyone the real reason you only sing to yourself in the shower and get behind a mic, no pressure though?

Sing and play your heart out!
