Karaoke Takeover at the Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest

At this year’s Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest, Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28, Trader Todd’s will host our very own karaoke stage at the corner of Belmont and Sheffield. Some of Chicago’s best singers will compete in a reality show-like competition to find out who’s the festival’s best singer! Each day of the festival will have its own grand prize winner, which includes a free, three day, two night trip to Fort Myers Beach, Florida!

Think you have what it takes? Every Tuesday night from 8 p.m. to close, Trader Todd’s will select the best performers to take the stage during the festival. You can also request a try out on any night by simply notifying the KJ when you request a song, or by sending an email to karaokekahuna@tradertodd.com. Winners will receive a golden ticket, which will serve as a pass to perform one day in front of the entire Belmont-Sheffield Music Fest! Karaoke will be held from 12 - 3 p.m. and 5 - 6:30 p.m. each day, followed by the finals from 6:30 - 7 p.m.

On Tuesday, June 6, Trader Todd’s will host an awards banquet for anyone who received a golden ticket. The night will feature an awards ceremony, karaoke and an hour of an open bar and food!

Don "Ogre" Gibb will be at Trader Todd's on Sunday, May 28 from noon to 7 p.m. for a meet and greet!

At the festival, visit the Trader Todd’s, Room 13 and Lakeview Chamber of Commerce beer booths to help donate to our favorite animal rescue groups! The Friends of Chicago Animal Care and Control, and Felines and Canines Inc.
