So many people ask this question that we decided to tell the story. RMK stands for “Record ME Karaoke.” When the company first began, the primary concept was to provide a karaoke show that stood out from the rest. An RMK show is not run like most other karaoke shows, but instead, it is run like a real rock show.
Most karaoke shows have someone standing on stage running the show from there which works okay, but that is not how a real rock show is run. A rock show is run by a sound engineer who is sitting out in front of the speakers so the mix can be adjusted as the show happens. At RMK, we mix the show the same way to keep it sounding great..!
The RMK concept also included lighting the stage like a rock band would. Combine that stage with the sound engineer sitting out front, and you have now framed the karaoke performer as a ‘lead singer’ in the ‘band.’ The final result? A karaoke show put on the way a rock show looks and sounds, and that equals more fun for both your performers and your guests alike.
So, what does the “Record” part have to do with this? The truly unique aspect of our original offering was that we also offered people the option of getting a mixed recording of their performance if they wanted one (something far better than one of your friends might capture with their phone..!). So, when the sound gear for the show was put together, we added a way to multi-track record the performance. That gives us the ability to mix the tracks in our studio and produce high quality mp3 files of karaoke performances – just another one of the ‘memories’ we aim to help you make.
Our offerings have grown from that original vision, but those pieces are still a part of our total offering and can either be the foundation of your party or added to most of our programs.
