The Stangels have changed the name and concept of the bar and hope to introduce The High Note Karaoke Lounge to the public on Friday, Sept. 4.
"We are doing some renovations now, and if all goes as planned, Sept. 4 will be our first day open," says Shannon.
When the Stangels first took over the bar, they intended to be a live music bar; however, they will return to the New Yorker’s karaoke focus.
"After urging from our customers, we decided to bring back the essence of the New Yorker: we are now going to be karaoke all the time," says Shannon.
The High Note will offer karaoke Wednesday through Saturday nights. They may add Mondays and Tuesdays in the future.
"Karaoke is always free," says Shannon. "We have added a lot of lasers, smoke machines and lighting. It is above and beyond a standard karaoke show."
