I am trying to get all the songs that are out right now that relate to Sept 11th. What I am trying to figure out is how to incorporate all that music when Sept comes around this year for 2002.
I am thinking like during the middle of the show at 9:56pm have a moment of silence and open up with the songs that are out right now (example Alan Jackson's "Where were you when the world stopped turning" , Hank Jr, America Will Survive, etc, etc.
I am figuring about an hour of rememberance per show that whole week.
What do you think?? Good or Bad Ideas??
I feel a responsibility to all the people who died and those who survived to do something.
Any replies would be appriciated. Thank You

Personally... I do not think an anniversary of such a tragic event should be marked by a whole evening of song... perhaps a brief moment of silence for those lost is more acceptable. Just my opinion.

I think you should let the customers decide. I'd gather the songs (picking up the various SC tribute discs would be a good idea), as well as browse the other brands. Then, make up a separate page or 2 at the front of your books. I definitely would mark the time at 956pm, and maybe play God Bless The USA or God Bless America for everyone to sing.

I have people come up and ask me to sing Billy Joel's song New York state of Mind.
I just downloaded a very kewl karaoker builder program. I'm going to try to make an individualized CDG with images of photos from my venue's customers, my logo, and the venue's logo... wouldn't mind trying to make a special one with images not only of the Towers BEFORE, but also the images of the horrific moments, as well as the brave ones afterwards.

That program I mentioned above I've FINALLY figured out how to use... karaokebuilder.com.
They promise all kinds of things... what I love though is the ability to create an onscreen logo of my company, my rules, the site I'm at, photos of regulars singing, etc.
I would liked to have created that WTC / Pennsylvania / Pentagon tribute, but seems too little, too late for that.
Anyway, check it out guys. I think it's worth the money they want to be able to create the stuff. For the tutorial, you have an online help page that basically walks you thru the creation of individual screens, linking them together with others, durations, fadeins and other special effects, and even linking them with .wav files. They also say something about regular CDG files, but I wouldn't mess with the copyrights there (my two cents!)

You know what's funny? I finally got that program to work with images converted from .bmp or .jpg files that I made advertising their bar...
and then we lose the gig because the owners sided with a three-month long "regular". They wanted to '86 my kj for not putting up with this guys crappola CHECK THIS OUT! , and I finally put my foot down and said, I'm outta here!
