Joe Hatchiban has been using portable, battery-powered boxes to help people unleash their inner Rampensau, and barking good natured criticism in the break between the last singer and the next since early 2009.

These singers have been tracked down on his travels by bike all over the great city of Berlin. Either spontaneously in the street, or at Bar 25 (R.I.P.), or at the Berlin International Bierfest, or at the Long Night of the Museums, or at the occasional demonstration for a reasonably good cause, or even at the Christmas parties of one or two companies renowned for their very good taste.

But mostly he finds them at the stone amphitheatre in Mauerpark on Sunday afternoons.

Weather permitting, Joe fetches up around 3 p.m. and invites anybody who so wishes to take the stage for a few minutes, and show those gathered there what they can do with a backing track and a microphone.

Bearpit singers nearly always get huge rounds of supportive applause, especially when they're good, but also if they simply come across as nice people.

Anyway, if things aren't going quite as planned, Joe is always on hand to give immediate advice to performers on the tactical sense of removing a shirt, for example, or simply pulling a few cartwheels during the next guitar solo.

The whole year around and especially during the Winter you can find Joe indoors on Saturdays with Kaptains Karaoke Berlin at the Hafenbar.

You may have noticed that the sound system at our MauerPark show is not the kind of thing that you can find at Media Markt. In fact you can't find this system anywhere except by talking to the people at Klara Geist...

The custom made box that we use at the show which is known as the Transformer (because it looks like a Transformer) was especially designed with the acoustics of the amphitheatre at MauerPark in mind. That might sound like total bullshit, but it's not. These people are serious. So it's not a coincidence that all our singers sound so good, they're getting some help from Willie (afro) & Fanny (dreadlocks) at Klara Geist.

To get in contact with these two great people,

 email info@klarageist.com or visit  their website klarageist.com

Demon Music is an independent music label. As well as original albums, they have also put out some karaoke compilations under the name 100 Hits. One of the people who works for Demon, Andrew, was at Bearpit over the summer and thought what we were doing was pretty good. He offered us all the karaoke that 100 Hits had to give, and we said "Ja bitte!"

Not because we're mad greedy, but because he had written to us just a couple of days after the Bearpit laptop finished one rainy Sunday session sitting under water, with no tracks playing anymore. And by the way, he made us this offer just days after the Demon warehouse had been burned down with all stock destroyed during the recent London riots.
