Another Look at SQL Karaoke

Karaoke is for everyone. It’s not just about picking a song and singing to background music. It’s not about trying to be the best singer in the group. In fact, part of the fun of karaoke is watching people who can’t sing! As someone who attends karaoke every few months, I have come to realize…

Interview with Tim Mitchell

As we’ve mentioned here before, SQL Karaoke is a great place to meet up with people in the SQL Server community.  This week, we are meeting Tim Mitchell (Blog | @tim_mitchell).  Tim is one of those that comes to SQL Karaoke and is a pretty decent singer.  Without further ado, here is what Tim thinks about SQL Karaoke……

Some MVPs at the MVP Summit

I’m not sure how I missed this video, but it seems someone found out about the SQL Server MVPs sneaking off to Bush Gardens at the MVP Summit.  The video is about 15 minutes and it’s a pretty dang good compilation of the night. Got a video of SQLKaraoke? Shoot it over to

Interview with Kathi Kellenberger

When you go out to a night of SQL Karaoke, there are a lot of people that you’ll meet.  One of them is Kathi Kellenberger (Blog | @auntkathi).  She’s been the one of the driving forces behind SQL Karaoke over the years.  Frankly, I probably wouldn’t be singing any karaoke today if it were not for Kathi.  Here’s…

Blister in the Sun – Rockaroke

Did you know that sometimes when we SQL Karaoke, there is also a live band?  Last year at the MVP Summit, Microsoft brought in a band to spice up the karaoke.  Here’s clip of Grant Fritchey (Blog | @GFritchey) doing a rendition of Blister in the Sun.  Looks like a hit to me. Got a video…
