Singers love to peruse a catalog for a song to sing and in a dim lit venue nothing beats a mobile device. Colorful and easy to read, Karaoke Manager makes looking for songs fun and easy. Don't give them a phone book that's tattered with small print. Looking for a song to sing should be fun! Help them find their songs by tagging songs as "group songs", "humorous songs", "Duets",etc.. Karaoke Manager does all this and more.
Singers can send their songs right to you the KJ. You see the songs submitted in the Admin. You can choose whether or not your singers can see the queue. You can rearrange the order to cater to new singers that haven't sung yet. (Move someone with a birthday up). It will let a singer know if their name or song is already in the queue. It frees you from trying to read chicken scratch on request slips or trying to hear someone request a song while the music is blaring. It takes care of these mundane things while allowing you to talk to your singers and enjoy the gig more. You don't have to print slips and have little pencils ready everytime you do a gig. You won't have to print a page of new songs everytime you add songs. A QR code to the site is all you need. Basically it just makes your job easier.
Getting your songs online takes less than a minute. You basically just import a csv file of your catalog. Regardless of what format your list of songs is in, Excel or Google Docs can convert it to a csv file, which you import in the admin area. (Click Here for demo video on importing csv file). You can add songs individually in the Admin area as well. You can also tag songs before you import them in 2 steps.
Give the catalog the same appearance and theme as your website or hand bill by adjusting the colors. Change the theme to go along with the seasons or Holidays. If you have a logo or graphic you can have that displayed at the top in the navigation bar. Much like importing your songs, graphic files can be imported and used. Images for the background can also be imported. See our video: Importing & Applying Graphics. There's no need to know any HTML, with just the click of a button you can assign images to be used as a background or logo.
If you have a company that's running 2 or more shows at the same time you can still use the "Submit Song to KJ" feature. The singer would just select the venue/party that they're at. To see how this works go to "Multiple Shows Demo". You can run up to 4 shows at the same time.
Why burden your singers with seeing the same song repeated even when the label is the same. See our video (Dealing with Duplicates), which gives an example of a KJ who uses Karafun in tandem with his own songs, decides to import Karafun's 659 Dutch songs to complement the 78 Dutch songs he already has. The import of course creates duplicates whereby the Kj can see the duplicates and either pick which ones to get rid of or get rid of all of them with a click.
You can create categories such as "Fun Group Songs", "Halloween Songs", "Duets", etc.. You can also decide which categories you want on top. For example if it's Christmas time you can have the Christmas category at the top. The singers themselves can save songs to their own personal list and categorize their own songs as well.
With a QR code, singers can scan the code on a table, handbill, flyer, etc. and be brought right to your catalog on their mobile device (No typeing). QR codes are free. Most KJs/DJs now have a QR code for Venmo should they want to be tipped. But we've also integrated a PayPal option, which allows the singer to give a tip after they've submitted a song. The PayPal API let's you know which singer in the queue sent the tip. You see all this in your Admin area. Again this is an option you can toggle on or off.
