Let's tally up the score for Jazzbones Rockaraoke, shall we? A chance to sing onstage with a live band? Yes. Cheap Miller High Life? Yes. A valid excuse to drink on a Monday (repeat, Monday) night? Yes, yes and, oh God, yes.

A full house on a Monday night is exciting. The Rockaraoke band is skilled, too. On more than one occasion the band manages to salvage some off-key and drunken vocals; eager dancers at the foot of the stage miss nary a step. The songs of Sublime, Gwen Stefani and other dorm room-type bands are crowd pleasers. 

Of course, the real entertainment isn't the Rockaraoke, it's the people-watching. Since most of the patrons are just a touch this side of 21, a look around the club is akin watching a "how to hookup" instructional video.

The writer is a little more excited than I am about cheap Miller beer and drunken vocals. "Dorm room-type bands" pretty much says it all. Throw in the naff building and bad sound and...yeah, no.

we went with some friends to Rockaraoke for the first time this last Monday and we had a blast! Having a real band behind you puts all other karaoke to shame! There were quite a few good singers throughout the night and just enough not so great drunken singers to make it fun and easy to work up the courage to get onstage. I dont drink much beer but those jello shots and jagerbombs were very reasonably priced and made us forget it was monday. Jazzbones has a great vibe and a good mix of people. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for a good time on a monday in Tacoma!
