24-Hour Karaoke People at Tiger Tiger

Form a team, sing a song of Manchester, have a laugh and help raise money (we also reveal a startling truth to the world)

Published on April 29th 2009.


24-Hour Karaoke People at Tiger Tiger

This is karaoke with a Manchester twist. Home grown musical classics will be belted out by 24 teams in aid of local charity Forever Manchester. From the Smiths and the Charlatans to Oasis and the Happy Mondays, there will be plenty of classics to choose from at the event, which takes place at the Lucky Voice Pods at Tiger Tiger on Wednesday 13 May from 3pm.

If you fancy singing Mancunian tracks for an hour to help raise money to support community groups throughout Greater Manchester, this could be your moment. Forever Manchester has been devised to harness the spirit and pride of Manchester people to help raise £2.2million. This will be matched by the government to create a massive £4.4million community fund for Manchester called the Infinity Fund.

Nick Massey, chief executive of The Community Foundation for Greater Manchester, said: “Music and Greater Manchester have had a long relationship, having worked in perfect harmony to make the area an audible inspiration the world over. It makes perfect sense for us to acknowledge this and hopefully this will be the first of many musical fundraisers for Forever Manchester.”

For more information on the 24-Hour Karaoke People event or to book a team please contact Emma James on 07931 318095. Places cost £100 per team, with a maximum of 10 people per team. Every £1 raised will be doubled by the government as part of its Grass Roots Challenge.

And here’s a pointless little factoid: Stockport is the home of karaoke. The first machine that put the words on a screen with music playing was made by Roy Brooke who created “Roy’s Singalong Machine” in 1975 in Goyt Mill in Marple. Nobody was listening though and Roy’s machine never took off. Later the Japanese developed the idea into the modern karaoke we know today.

In otherwords it’s your Greater Mancunian duty to make a team, sing a song of Manchester and help raise money - whilst having the best fun you can have with your clothes on at Tiger Tiger.
