Join Seth at Diamond Jim’s
By Ty Hughes
Federal Way’s longtime karaoke powerhouse, Diamond Jim’s Restaurant and Lounge, is on the move again! They’ve been making changes that you have got to see to believe!
First thing‘s first, it seems we’re playing the great karaoke host shuffle in the southend. Popular host, Seth Bates, of Starr Struck Karaoke, recently took over the karaoke show at Diamond Jim’s every Wednesday and Thursday starting at 8:30pm, alternating Fridays at 9pm, and Saturdays at 9pm. He brings his style and personality to a proven karaoke hot spot, and wants all his peeps to join him for some good times and karaoke.
Seth built himself a sweet custom diamond-tuck case for his equipment and speaker covers. He runs strictly laser discs and CD+Gs, and swears there will be no computers running his shows. The crowd seemed to appreciate Seth’s professionalism, as they heaped on the classic old Country tunes. Wild Bill did a bit o’ Hank Williams Jr., and first-time karaoke singer Jeff, chose Don Williams to everyone’s approval.
Among other things, Kerri, one of Diamond Jim’s favorite bartenders, is leaving her post after five years on the job. Stop in and say your farewells soon.
Check out Andy Burnett, solo artist, for some alternate entertainment. Visit his Web site at www.andyburnett.com for scheduling and details.
Diamond Jim’s is a cozy little room, dark and soft, perfect for a karaoke getaway. They’ve got a nice little stage, sound clarity, and even booth seating along the wall. Karaoke at Diamond Jim’s is a staple in the southend. Come out Wednesday through Saturday for a looksie. You’ll make it a regular stop in no time.
Diamond Jim’s is at 1616 325th St. S, Federal Way, WA – (253) 838-1140.
