Pacific Lanes names Contest Winners
By Les Lindstrand
Yet another karaoke contest at Pacific Lanes Bowl in Tacoma has come to an exciting finish, but the real winners were the large audience that showed up in support.
We were treated to some very impressive talent spanning multiple decades and genres.
Pacific Lanes Karaoke Host Jodee Shrock conducted an efficient show, offering encouragement to each singer.
An enraptured audience enjoyed the many drink specials served up by a gracious and accomodating staff. Fresh and tasty dinners flowed into the bar from a busy kitchen, and the music flowed out of the bar into a busy bowling alley.
The karaoke contest was finally coming to a close, giving all those that had qualified a chance to show off their talents and win some extra money.
This go-round, Jodee’s contest attracted an entirely new set of singers, many new to the bar. She was glad to meet some new people who shared her passion for karaoke.
After everyone had an opportunity to put forth their best efforts, it was all up to the attending judge’s panel.
Congratulations to these performers who landed on top:
Frank took 1st Place ($100), singing “Geogia”, a fabulous tribute to Ray Charles.
Jeff came in a close 2nd Place ($75), singing “A Change Is Gonna Come”.
July followed up in 3rd Place ($50) with her “Not Ready To Make Nice”.
George landed 4th Place ($25) with “Lady”.
What a fun contest at a great location. Come out to Pacific Lanes for karaoke every Wednesday through Saturday with Jodee, and they’re kickin’ off another contest on Thursdays in September! Come in and qualify to win!
