Spring League Waiting List
Some New Rules for The Winter League 2019
- have fun! Get to know those people who are singing on your evening. They just may become your best friends.
- watch how others sing and perform to possibly pick up some tips that you can use for your own performances.
- dressing up in costume isn't mandatory, but it will get you an extra point per song.
- your scores are determined by two factors. 1. vocals. 2. performance. Each category has a maximum of 10 points per song. Plus that extra 1 point for costume/props for a possible total of 21 points per song.
- the singing order is picked randomly by an online number generator that I use.
- singing begins at 9pm sharp!
- if you are going to be late or not show up at all, please let me know in advance. text 306-270-2068
- only one absence allowed. (you will be given 20 pts per absence this league)
- miss more than the allowed dates and you don't qualify for the semi finals or finals. You still however may attend regular league nights .
- miss half or more of the league nights(including semi finals), you're disqualified from signing up for the next league. This is still a business and the business is getting people into the bar. So, if you think/know that maybe your health isn't the greatest, or you have upcoming trips and you won't be able to attend, please let's not waste each others time.
- I post a critique every night after the league is done. It can be found on this website usually by the next morning.
- as well, a slideshow of the night's events will also be on this website, usually by the next morning.
- don't take this too seriously. Be in competition with yourself and no one else. If you think you can be on the same playing level as some of these people who've been in this for years, you're going to be in for a rude awakening and this will not be a very fun experience for you at all. Consider it like a game of golf. You might go golfing with Tiger Woods but you certainly wouldn't expect to beat him. There will be a wide spectrum of talent in this league. Don't let that intimidate you.
- there's going to be someone in first place and someone in last place each week. If you're ultra competitive, then I suggest you grow a thick skin because results differ from week to week from judge to judge. You may be 1st one week and last the next...… or last every week!
- a judges schedule will be made and posted below.
- my definition of a "costume" is anything that you likely wouldn't wear to work. Every performer has stage clothes of some sort. However, all you need is really a prop to earn that extra one point per song.
- any questions at all, feel free to ask!

Winter League Themes 2019
January 29,30,31 - Impersonator Night - pick the person or group you think you can impersonate best. Dress and sing the part! If you want to do 2 personalities, go for it! This is going to be just a "fun" evening so everybody can ease back into karaoke league. So, 1 point for everyone in attendance and it looks like 20 points for people daring to miss the first week! (remember, the lower the points, the better....just like golf)
February 5,6,7 - The Name Game - pretty simple. Songs about girls, guys, cities, countries, planets......I don't care as long as it's in the title of the song. examples are (Angie, Gloria, Tulsa Time, America, Back in the USSR, Buddy Holly, Hollywood Nights etc)
February 12,13,14 - Jekyll & Hyde - this theme is about opposites. So, whether you want to oppose Love/Hate, Peace/Violence, loud/quiet, fast/slow, it's up to you. I've left this one pretty much wide open. Remember to dress the part for that extra one point per song.
February 19,20,21 - Planes, Trains & Automobiles - we've done this one before and it went pretty smoothly if I remember correctly. Owen suggested it again, so I thought what the heck? It's all about transportation. Songs about travel or trucks, cars, trains, planes, jets, rockets. An example of a few tunes would be "This Flight Tonight" or "Drive My Car", "Eastbound and Down", "Rocket Man", "Roll on Down the Highway" etc.
February 26,27,28 - No League this Week! If you need a break, this is your time to do it! It's also a great week to practice!
March 5,6,7 - Songs from the Grave - unfortunately this category has grown substantially over the past few years. Your mission, sing a couple of songs originally performed by someone who is now dead.
March 12,13,14 - Sentimental Journey - sing two songs that mean something to you on a deep personal level. Whether it's the song you got married to or one that your dad used to sing to you when you were little. Or maybe, a song that reminds you of your first love, or child, or pet. It could be about losing someone close, breaking up, etc.
March 19,20,21 - Country Switch - it's our country night with a twist. Boys will be girls and girls will be boys. Meaning, dudes sing female country songs and gals sing male country songs. Dress the part, it's always more fun that way! This is another "fun" evening so don't worry about how you do because it's all about attendance. 1 point for everyone showing up, 20 points for being absent.
March 26 - Semi Finals - all those people who finished 4th or lower overall on their respective nights are eligible to sing one song. Those who've missed more than one night will unfortunately have to sit this night out. People finishing 1st, 2nd or 3rd on their respective nights will get a bye into the final.
March 28 - Finals - the top 11 singers from the semi finals (held on Tuesday) will sing along with the 9 people who received the bye into the final for a total of 20 singers. Each singer will sing one song and you can choose any song that you like. After an evening champion has been crowned, the top 16 singers from this group will go on to form the Spring Super League beginning in May. (more details to follow)
This list is final. People dropping out will not be replaced with others.
