Paws For Thought: Straight from the Pony's mouth!

Swizzles, 246 Queen Street continues the tradition: Karaoke with Dog & Pony Sound every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday and sizzlin' male dancers Wednesdays and Saturdays. Catch up on all Swizzles events at their new website: www.swizzles.ca

Sunday karaoke at Swizzles is an early show 7-11pm. The 1st TUESDAY of every month at Swizzles is Movie Tunesday! A movie musical followed by karaoke till you drop. Beat the February Blahs - February 3rd, 8pm, sing along to the smash hit "CHICAGO". Fridays at Swizzles is a packed house with Miss Kitty...purrrrrfect!

Catch American Idol on the huge 52" tv at Swizzles every Tuesday followed by karaoke with The Dog.

This month, join the Hawk at the Lookout, 41 York St. for the month end party that only occurs once every 4 years...that's right kiddies...it's a Leap Year Show
February 29th
! 8pm to midnight!

O'Brien's just keeps rockin' with Dog Fridays & Wildcat Saturdays. Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the Dog's birthday at O'Brien's. Oh what fun! I think it really is the birthday he'll never remember. Not bad for 294 (in dog years).

If you haven't been treated to a V.I.P. show you're missing out. There's a slightly different flavour to the Village Inn Pub shows, 313 Bank St. ...spicey! Dog gets down 'n dirty every Wednesday while Miss Kitty out drags the drag queens every Saturday 9:30-1:30.

Congratulations to DOG & PONY Pals Dann Oickle, Adam Goldberg, and Al Labelle who all won parts in the stage play musical extraviganza TOMMY! We'll keep you posted on out message board as to when the play opens.

Karaoke Fun! Singing TipsMicrophone Tips: Mic Technique 101
"What's the buzz, tell me what's a happenin"

We invest a lot of money in high end equipment
to help you sound your very best.
Our microphones are no exception!

Our mics are EXTREMELY sensitive unidirectional instruments. They do not pick up surrounding sounds. They only pick up the direct stream of sound from your lips to the sensitive element inside the head.

Before singing, speak into the mic to test if it's on. We'll activate the mic and adjust the levels for you.

Please don't tap, bang or blow into the mic. That could damage the sensitive element and they can cost a lot of money to replace.

It is important to hold the mic in front of your mouth at about a 90° angle a couple of inches and slightly to the side of from your mouth for best sound quality. Do not cup the head of the mic. This creates muffled distortion and often, severe feedback.

DO NOT put your lips on the mic! It will make you sound YUCKY, MUSHY, BLURRY, MUFFLED, AND your voice will become an amplified mess of BUZZ sounds! ack!

We want you to sound your best! Hold the mic an inch or two from your mouth and we will give you all the volume you need to sound your best. If you hold the mic to your lips, we are forced to turn the mic down because of the awful buzzing noises this creates.
