- OB-oke Royale
"OB-oke" (pronounced: "Oh-Bee-Oh-Key"), that's Karaoke, O.B. style! San Diego's hottest karaoke show is unique to Winston's in Ocean Beach. OB-oke is a night of musical mayhem when all wanna-be rock-stars take the stage to belt out a few ditties and enjoy some cold beverages. Winston's powerful P.A. system and top-notch sound-man (or as Jose calls him, "the lovely orchestral conductor"), helps make singers of all talent-levels sound their best; the full stage, lights, disco ball, and fog machine help to create a sonic spectacle of seismic proportions.
At the center of this swirling maelstrom of stunning stimuli is the ringleader and host, the illustrious Jose Sinatra. Known from his vocal stylings as frontman in his band, "Jose Sinatra and the Troy Dante Inferno," OB-oke's director of rock-opera-ations is a dynamic and demented stage presence whose wit and humor is only equaled by the size of the sock stuffed in his crotch. (At least I think it's a sock.) Jose's theatrical performances of re-written songs and insane originals (such as the OB-oke theme song) make Sunday nights at Winston's exceptional entertainment that is not to be missed.
$2 cover and drink specials have helped OB-oke become the hottest thing since Neil Diamond. Some of San Diego's finest local singers make frequent cameos on Winston's stage, but singers of all ability levels are encouraged to try their chops and become a rock-star one day of the week. For amateur singin' and professional drinkin' come into Winston's on Sunday nights and enjoy the exhilarating experience of OB-oke!
