You sing your favorite songs in the shower and in the car — so why not sing them in a classroom with your friends!
Students at Christian Brothers High School are always finding new ways to express themselves, whether it be through clothing, music, or in this case, clubs.
Clubs are an old tradition on the CB campus and something that students look forward to every year. Students get a chance to sign up for clubs of their choosing during “Club Day” which takes place at a lunch toward the beginning of the year.
Christian Brothers is home to many original clubs such as the GQ club, which embraces the newest clothing trends, and the Frozen Banana Society, a club where students gather to laugh as much as possible.
Returning clubs usually get more attention and sign ups on Club Day on account of their rich histories and well kept reputations. However, this year a new club has taken the campus by storm and even though their existence has been brief, looks to rival the legacies of far more established clubs.
Ko-president Dante Mazza (’15) truly captures the essence of the fresh enigma that is…the Karaoke Klub.
“The Karaoke Klub is group of people who get together for one soul purpose: to have fun,” Dante says.
Other clubs may present criteria and regulations for their members, but for the Karaoke Klub, that is not the case.
“Skill level does not matter, taste in music does not matter,” Dante claims. “All you need to join is the ability to have fun.”
This club embodies the power of music and companionship to create a place on campus where students can have a good time.
“People can have a good time through both music and each other — so we provide that outlet on campus,” said the opportunistic Dante.
Speaker of the House and Assistant Kustodian Madison Winn (’15) believes the Karaoke Klub ranks among the top in terms of popularity among students.
“I would absolutely say that this is the best club on campus,” he says.
Every club on campus has a goal that they strive for, the Karaoke Klub’s goal is quite unique.
“Our club’s goal is to simply create an environment where mirth is always present,” Madison says proudly. “Mirth is our goal, and we will achieve it in each and every meeting — mirth is the Karaoke Klub.”
Ko-president Jack Barnes (’15) adds, “the turnout of our next (Karaoke Klub) meeting will be around 300 students, so that’s an important stat to know.”
If you are wondering where you can experience mirth as it has been described here, the Karaoke Klub meets in Mr. Guro’s room each week during Falcon Flex.
If you ever find yourself pondering why you should join the Karaoke Klub, Ko-president Daniel Lee (’15) already has the answer.
“Mirth, that is why”.
