Register for Chicago's first-and-only social, team-based karaoke league!
Second City Karaoke is a social, team-based competitive karaoke league. It’s team-based, meaning you perform with friends and cheer each other on. It’s social because you’re surrounded by dozens of like-minded, supportive people. And the competition? Everyone at the venue gets to select their favorite performances using our "matchup" mobile scoring system.
The basics: Each division is comprised of 48 performers, separated into six teams. Each night, the teams compete in three rounds. The first two rounds consist of solo performances, and the third round is for group performances.
What you’re signing up for: The season lasts for 10 weeks, with the last two weeks making up the Post-Season.
The teams: Throughout the season, you’ll perform on the same team, consisting of 8 performers. Already have your team together? Cool! You can join together. No team yet? Great! You can sign up as a free agent, and we’ll find a team for you. About a week before the season begins, you’ll receive information about your team and how to join the fun!
The divisions: Each division meets at the same time each week at the same bar. In order to register, you’ll need to choose which division you’d like to join.
Register Early and Save!
- Early Bird Performers: Register by July 19 at midnight and pay $48.00 (plus Eventbrite fees).
- Discounted Registration: Register by August 9 at midnight and pay $52.00 (plus Eventbrite fees).
- General Registration: Register after August 9 and pay $56.00 (plus Eventbrite fees).
For smaller teams or groups: If your team or group is fewer than 8 people, we will either combine your team with another small team or add free agents to your team. Since space is limited, CREATING A TEAM DOES NOT GUARANTEE YOU 8 SPACES UNLESS YOU FILL YOUR TEAM. Teams are filled first come, first serve.
