ROK Supports AJ’s Kids Crane

When we were asked to support AJ’s Kids Crane this year, there was literally no discussion. Of course we would love to participate in this annual event where a local radio DJ (AJ Machado of Energy 103.7FM) literally lives atop a crane in the Ikea parking lot in San Diego for an entire week. The event is held each year to support Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.

Naturally, we were even more excited when they announced we’d be the backing band for a karaoke competition.

As if that wasn’t enough, they also let us know that there would be several of San Diego’s finest food trucks in attendance that evening as well. Heaven.

If you weren’t able to join us, you totally missed out. The winner of the karaoke competition took home a sweeeeeet Sony 4K TV for being the best singer. See? It pays to be a ROK fan, so thanks to those of you who came out to participate!

Be sure to tag us in your online photos + videos if you were there!

PB Idol Karaoke Finals!

After eight weeks of preliminary rounds of the only live band karaoke competition in San Diego, we’ve narrowed it down to eight finalists who will now compete for the crown of PB Idol!

Finals night is Saturday, April 2nd at 9:30pm. Contestants will slug it out on the legendary stage of the 710 Beach Club in Pacific Beach, CA.

Of course, we’ll have time for the audience to take the stage with us for some good ol’ live band karaoke. Be sure to arrive early to get on the karaoke sign up list.

Since we’ve had such a great run of preliminary rounds, we’re expecting nothing but A game from our 8 finalists – one of whom will take home the title of PB Idol.

Best wishes to all of them: Jessica, Katrina, Amanda, Lou, Ugh, Ryan, Samboa, and Hans. (Note: reigning champion Chris won his round, but is unable to compete in the finals – that means we’ll have a new champ this year.) ¬†Bring your best vocals and a San Diego cheering section, and we’ll see you on Saturday!

Update: ¬†And your PB Idol 2011 winner is…. Ugh!
