Sweat dripping from your pores, confetti flying everywhere filling those pores. A light-show perfectly in sync with projected images around you which are perfectly in sync with positive jams emanating from the speaker systems and the vocal chords of yourself and those around you and all donned by a parachuted carnival tent canopy. This is Rich Aucoin’s Karaoke Carnival Tour.
Sing-along in crowd-karaoke with your friends to Aucoin’s music as the words flash before you on the projection screen and are screamed on all sides of you for a high-energy dance party to the whole spectrum of visual collage. Get covered in confetti and parachutes and group hugs under the rainbow of a light-show culminating in a few singalong epics by way of Queen and Bowie to close out the sweaty night.
Produced by Rich and his drummer, Joel Waddell, and mixed by some heavy-weights including Mick Guzauski (Daft Punk / Random Access Memories) Ephemeral offers ten energetic pop songs with gang vocal shouted choruses of size up to 20 000 people. The album is out in Canada via Bonsound and also available in the USA via Young Enthusiastic Americans, and in France via Platinum Records.
