Albert’s is the perfect venue for a great karaoke night out. With its multi-screen layout, quality sound system and over 25,000 different songs to choose from it make for a fantastic night out in Torquay. We also welcome all parties, stag and hen nights and large groups as well as single or duo vocalists.
Your regular host is Chris Jackson, who fronted the local soul band Joey The Lips for 10 years. Chris and alto sax player John George put the band together in 1993 and based it on the line-up and music from the film `The Commitments’, even taking the name from the trumpet player in the film, Joey `The Lips’ Fagan.
Joey The Lips travelled all over the country and Europe playing to ever growing crowds of Soul music fans. The band is still playing now, although John George is the only surviving member of the original band. You can check out the latest line-up at www.joeythelips.co.uk.
In 1999, Joey The Lips played on local television chat show `Langsford Late’ with Ruth Langsford (who is now married to TV presenter Eamonn Holmes) and jammed with some very unusual guests including Patrick Moore (on vibraphone). Here’s a clip with Chris singing from one of the shows: http://www.youtube.com
Cheers for now
