No one but the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership Partnership would indulge in the beauty of karaoke….well many would, but not holiday karaoke in the middle of Market Square. The jagoffs get in tune with the karaoke judges Dan Braddock, of the CW, and Melissa Knauer, who is a member in three different bands including the Knauer Brothers Band. Plus, there was some insight on the art of karaoke from the DJ who ties it all together! Then the duo hit the Entercom Steelers tailgate at Rivers Casino lawn and discussed hat hair and next day hair remedies with style experts from Izazzu; Emilio Cornacchione and Gino Chiodo.

These two get a little judgy with contestants. But there were quite a few 9’s on that karaoke ballot. Melissa explains the importance of technique and style when singing any tune, and Dan, well he is just holiday eye candy. They watched and were wowed by over a dozen performers in the cold November rain….and they are returning! Knauer Brothers Band, CW Pittsburgh
