Interview with a pro KJ - Jeff from Kobalt

Self-described as the bar with a "little something different," Kobalt, located in Phoenix, Arizona, USA, prides itself on it's title of Best Karaoke in Phoenix! With karaoke being offered twice a week, the club is reminiscent of "American Idol" auditions with "a few really talented singers, a lot of decent ones and some tone-deaf entertainers." Open since 2006, Kobalt's KJs give us their do's and dont's of making a successful soirée!
