Matt’s Annual Karaoke Party

Tonight was Matt and Patti’s annual karaoke party. This year, due to the economy, they pushed the party from summer to fall. It was a low key event but still had a big turn out and had a blast. I brought a smaller setup so I didn’t have to drag all the equipment. I was […]
