Hey! It's Dre, the most introverted extrovert. In his own words, he's a geek by nature, and loves all things comic book, anime, and the like.
He's also a very big "hip-hop head"and likes to stick to what he terms as "hip-hop-eroke", so be ready for a fun filled show with the biggest geek you know!
You want a fun night? Then you've GOT to check out the amazing KJ Hi Ho Silva! Chase is one of the most caring individuals you'll find, and his vocals are out of this world! He's got the WOW factor.
From the beginning, Pat has lived and breathed music and karaoke. Starting in UW Marching band, he got his first taste of karaoke and began hosting at frats on campus until he joined Cloud 9 Karaoke. When that company closed, Pat and his friend Joe hosted together. Soon after, their little joint venture exploded (in a good way), and KJ Kuddles crossed paths with Josh Baron while Josh was hosting at Tarascos. To get into the digital karaoke field, they joined forces, and it's been Karaoke History ever since.
Andrew has been involved in the world of karaoke for many years. As a teen, Andrew's family purchased a Karaoke machine for entertainment during parties that they hosted (even on school nights). Andrew joined Absolute in 2010 and has been enjoying hosting karaoke, trivia, private parties, and weddings ever since. Some of Andrews' favorite songs to perform include Macklemore's Can't Hold Us, Gavin DeGraw's Not Over You, show tunes, and any Jamie Cullum song. When not performing or hosting, he enjoys being around his family and friends, playing video games, and geeking out over new technology.
As you can see from the bio pic, Blake is the definite Super Host! Straightedge and stellar, Blake is one of the newer members of the Absolute Entertainment family. Very athletic, fun loving Blake will rock the whole night through, making sure everyone is having a great time!
Meet the host previously known as "Xtain", now KJ SOS, because he always comes to the rescue! Christian has been singing karaoke for more than 5 years, and really gets into the Pop scene. Originally starting at the Drift On Inn, his first karaoke tune was Lips of an Angel, by Hinder. Now his favorite song to sing is Wonderwall, but ask him for a Disney song , and he'll know every single word. The most enjoyable part, in his own words, is entertaining others. You can find him doing exactly that at the Twisted Lime in Mill Creek, WA. When he's not hosting or coming to the rescue, Christian enjoys electronic kit making and computer assembly.
Awwwwww, man! You all know and love KJ Nomi! Konomi is one of our most requested and popular hosts, and you can find her just about 6 out of 7 nights a week (just make sure to check our venues tab for where and when!) rockin' out and wowing the crowd. Singer by trade, this woman will floor you with her ability. Just by being around her makes you want to belt out your favorite Halestorm or Flyleaf song. She's an avid, die-hard Seahawks fan, and has the knowledge and energy to prove it!
Not only does Kendall love to sing, but it's in her blood. She started singing karaoke at the age of 17, helping her mother set up and host shows back on the east coast in NJ and DE. While KJ Epik's favorite songs to sing change almost as much as her hairstyle, the genre never does; rock n' roll never gets old! In addition to karaoke, she's the Quizmaster at the Irishmen in Everett, WA, challenging the crowd knowledge. In her own words, "It's about having fun, making memories, and always having an "Epik" time!" When she's not hosting, Kendall is a very busy mother of 4 and (during her rare downtime) is a part-time seamstress.
Since her very first experience with a karaoke machine, a gift that her mother and sister shared, performing for her grandfather on Christmas, Nicole has loved to sing anywhere and everywhere. Thanks to her 3 years of performing live karaoke, she has gotten over her stage fright, and joins in the fun with her favorite rock and country songs. KJ Codak gets her weekly singing fix every Saturday at Billy Beach Sushi in Ballard, and absolutely loves her venue and amazing staff. Her hobbies outside of hosting and singing include reading, poetry, spending time with friends, cuddling her adorable dog, shopping, and planning photo shoots. In line with photo shoots, the aptly named KJ Codak is a professional photographer! One of her most recent shoots was our very own Seattle Singer Showcase. You can find some of her work on her website, Emerald City Imagery.
Meet your outgoing, karaoke Romeo, Mr. Luis Romero. He loves to meet new people from all walks of life. It wasn't until around his 33rd birthday that he started singing in public karaoke venues, but he's hooked! In one short story he shared with us, Romero and some friends even convinced a restaurant bar owner in the International District to set up their karaoke at 2 in the afternoon! He and his friends brought out the 80's and some classic rock, and rocked so hard one of his friends even fell off the stage during his performance! At home, KJ Romero has a personal studio where he records various local projects in the North Seattle area, as well as spending time rapping and D.J.-ing. You can find the fantastic and diverse Verse Omega regularly at Plaza Garibaldi in lower Queen Anne, or filling in as a guest host at some of our Ballard locations. Make sure to check Absolute Entertainment's Facebook page for when and where!!!
