Where the ADMIRAL PUB and adjacent hotel has a rich community history that has seen many transformations over the decades - the relationship with ALL STARS KARAOKE started in September of 2007. Under new ownership - there was the one major directive from the management - they wanted the Admiral to be a vital LIVE MUSIC venue in the community - something that was very different from what the establishment previously was! They began to book live bands and wanted a regular event like karaoke - to keep the live music theme alive throughout the week. All Stars Karaoke brought to the Admiral - the NEXT PHASE of karaoke, with the use of live webcasts worldwide and a fully computerized karaoke system with superior sound and audience interaction.
Using the best of the resources available at the time, with the fastest computers and best quality video devices - ALL STARS KARAOKE was featured at the Admiral and took off immediately! Being the first karaoke show to broadcast live, and record performances to a newer exciting social media format - YOUTUBE - here is the first video we have on record. (Earlier ones were sadly lost when the YOUTUBE pages were deleted due to their inexperience in being able to handle our entertainment format with existing copyright rules.) This is Timothy L - who by the way - is STILL a regular at every ADMIRAL karaoke show to this day!
Over the years, improvements in all aspects have the show have been introduced FIRST at the ADMIRAL PUB - continuing the tradition of the ADMIRAL KARAOKE show being the cutting edge production in the industry!
Birth Of A Legend!
The Admiral Pub has been one of the MOST popular and successful karaoke shows in the greater Vancouver area over the last decade - with the show happening every MONDAY from 7:30pm to 11:30pm. It was the first venue in the NATION to broadcast it's show worldwide via webcast - and also have it's own dedicated YOUTUBE page. The Admiral has a very warm den sort of feel - but is generous in size - with a capacity of almost 325, with the karaoke area holding close to 80 people. Comfortable tables and booths all with view of performance area - there are THREE large LCD's behind the stage for karaoke viewing, and sound that is one of the best in the area. Popular throughout the community for their menu - which serves traditional pub fare - but the daily specials such as their Monday night TURKEY DINNER special for only $8.27 are very popular, and there are beverage specials that are equally attractive!
The crowd is generally 40 years old plus - though MANY younger customers venture in for the classic karaoke experience from time to time. The music generally hovers around classics in rock and roll and motown, with pop songs from the 70's. The Admiral is a live venue - that has a monthly open mic, bands on the weekends, and even an ELVIS SHOW that appears about every 8 weeks. No pool tables, or dart boards, but a strong regular karaoke crowd that keeps Mondays hopping on a weekly basis! Karaoke on Mondays is only delayed when a Canucks game in broadcasting, but you get an extra APPETIZER deal while you wait to start singing! There are no dance sets or mid night gimmicks - just classic karaoke - where everyone gets a chance to sing (providing you arrive before the cutoff time) It is about simple fun and enjoyment of music and the karaoke community. Drunken disobedience is not tolerated, and there is no room for the inflated egos who want to hog the stage. If it is a relaxing classic karaoke experience you want where diversity in age and musical genre unite - then the ADMIRAL PUB is your place!
