When the Sidetrack closed, Leah Evans, of Torchlight Entertainment, took her killer karaoke contest across the street to After 5 Sports Bar. She was welcomed with open arms. In fact, they even offered to cover the prize money! Now that’s just downright neighborly, don’t ya think?
Leah’s Contest flourished in the following weeks leading up to the big Finale November 11.
Each and every week, she qualified some great singers to participate in the Finals. Somebody would walk away with $400 big ones in their pocket. Second place was guaranteed a cool $150, and 3rd place won $75.

The unassuming neighborhood cafe on an obscure corner, deep in the heart of Milton has a ‘dark’ side, luring some of America’s biggest names to their modest, but busy stage. Whenever these entertainment juggernauts are in town, they scramble to appear at Dave’s of Milton. Including many of our own local juggernauts, who also enjoy playing Dave’s.
Mary, owner at Dave’s, is proud as punch to maintain one of the Northwest’s premier venues for the best quality entertainment today. Even Mary is often surprised by who comes in to perform.
