Nashville-based music tech company, KaraoQ, signs deal with DigiTrax Entertainment to provide a better karaoke experience from your mobile device. This partnership integrates the mobile application experience with a legally sourced karaoke catalog: it’s social, mobile and all legal.
This integration was made possible through a serendipitous introduction. The two companies met through Launch TN’s initiative to empower and prepare entrepreneurs in the state of Tennessee. Joe Vangieri, CEO of DigiTrax Entertainment, is a lead mentor of MediaWorks, a summer-long intensive program hosted through the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center. Michael Amburgey of KaraoQ was a part of Project Music, through the Nashville Entrepreneur Center. The two companies were introduced by Shawn Yeager of the Back Porch Group, an advisor on the KaraoQ board and a lecturer at MediaWorks. He felt the companies would be a great fit: one provides the music and the other, the interaction.
DigiTrax Entertainment’s karaoke music-based offer, Karaoke Cloud, fuels the music library that powers KaraoQ. Singers choose their song, join the queue, then have the chance to users to bump someone up the list, rate singers and tip their KJs. KaraoQ users will truly have the most interactive karaoke experience yet.
