Larryoke: the longest running karoke in Louisville?

Print

People who love karaoke in Louisville, Kentucky should know one man: Larry Doyle. Larry runs a karaoke show known as Larry-oke all over the Kentuckiana area - at least five nights a week.  Larry-oke has been going on for nine years in Louisville. He really knows how to keep the karaoke crowd going, but is also seasoned in  being a solid supporter of and staple in the Louisville local music scene.  Many of his karaoke guests fail to realize that he is also an amazing keys player. He has been responsible for many open mic and jam sessions, and there aren't very many musicians who don't know who he is.

 

Larry's full offering of music and karaoke fun in Louisville is as follows:

 

Special Event: 2010 BEARNO'S IDOL KARAOKE CONTEST will run for 2 consecutive weeks starting 9/10/2010, at Bearno's 4105 Dixie Highway. There will be 3 winners each night judged by a panel.  All six winners will compete in the final contest at Bearno's Dixie for one Grand Prize. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a personalized video of the entire last night's performance along with an appearance on Music Central TV.  In addition to that, they  will also receive one  any size / any toppings pizza  per week from Bearno's Dixie location for the remainder of 2010.

 

Every Tuesday evening,  Doyle serves up Kentucky karaoke madness at Longshot Tavern 2232 Frankfort, with Hil-Larry-Oke at 10 p.m.  His side kick and Mistress of Mayhem, Jodi Jervis Ennis encourages singers to get in costume before they take the stage. The kitchen stays open late.

 

Wednesdays take Doyle across the river for an evening of karaoke at Sonny's Island Grill in Jeffersonville at 100 W. Riverside Drive, where guests can enjoy the weather on the beautiful 2nd floor patio overlooking the River and Louisville skyline. Larry-Oke (9-?), (The view is amazing! It just so happens to be where I am sitting as I write this.) There is no smoking ban in Jeffersonville, so smokers can light one up inside, but the open deck keeps the air fresh.

 

Thirsty Thursdays find Larry-Oke at Zazoo's Bar and Grill at 102 Bauer Avenue in St. Matthews. The fun starts at 11:00 pm and continues 'til the bar kicks everyone out at last call for alcohol.  Food is also served well into the morning.

 

There's two options for musical fun on Fridays.

 

 If you want to get into the show and sing, check out 'Family Friendly' Larry-Oke fun at Bearno's on Dixie, 4105 Dixie Highway, in the heart of Lively Shively. Great food, cold drinks, good people! The fun starts at 8:00 and continues until midnight!

 

If you'd rather enjoy some live music by others, check out the All Stars at Bearno's in the highlands on Bardstown Road. Larry Doyle and/or Brian White share the evening jamming with select local performers.

 

‎Saturday brings Larry back to Bearno's Highlands 1318 Bardstown Road, for another weekly serving of uncensored and unabashed, "Larry-Oke". This is where "Larry-Oke" began many years ago and still continues to entertain multiple generations of locals.
