The power of a microphone can turn a simple country girl into a beehived diva, a mild-mannered music geek into a cutting-edge disc jockey, and three anthropomorphic chipmunks into squeaking demagogues. Shine the spotlight on yourself with today’s Groupon: for $50, you get a three-hour karaoke party for up to ten people at Jam Space, located on Ouellette Avenue (up to a $300 value). Housed in a 4,800-square-foot facility with rehearsal rooms, a recording studio, and a Rock Band lounge, Jam Space caters to music-lovers of all skill levels, from professional musicians to amateur soundsmiths trying not to drive their neighbours to distraction with synth-flute stylings of "My Heart Will Go On." Your karaoke party includes studio time and a photo shoot, and those not singing their spleens out can bide their time playing Rock Band.
The Windsor Star recently featured Jam Space:
- The 4,800-square-foot facility features three practice rooms, each equipped with a PA system, plus a recording studio and lounge for musicians between sets. "My little brother was in three bands and every one broke up because they had no where to practise," co-owner Jeff Bourque said. "We made a one-stop-shop where bands can come in, they can make their CD, they can jam here, we'll make them posters and we'll help promote them." The business is the first of its kind in the Windsor area and offers numerous packages and rates. – Dylan Kristy
