Live Out Your Rock Star Dreams Aug. 24 with Live Band Karaoke

WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Have you ever dreamed about performing on stage in front of hundreds of screaming fans? If so, you’ll want to sign up for Live Band Karaoke Aug. 24 at the West Plains Civic Center.

Hosted by the University/Community Programs (U/CP) Department at Missouri State University-West Plains, this first event of the fall season will feature Chicago’s first and finest karaoke band.

The live band plays hundreds of songs from nearly every genre, including rock, pop, hip hop, heavy metal, top 40, country, soul, disco, punk and more, giving those who want to pick up the microphone the opportunity to be the lead singer in their very own band.

“They bring the lyrics and the live band. They even sing backup vocals with you to make you the star,” according to Live Band Karaoke officials.

Tickets for the event, which gets underway at 7 p.m. in the civic center theater, are $10 each. Tickets are available through the West Plains Civic Center box office, 110 St. Louis St., from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays, or by phone at 417-256-8087.

Missouri State-West Plains students with a BearPass ID will be admitted free.
