Best Karaoke Host

Jackie Smith

According to Coast readers, the number one name in Halifax karaoke is Jackie Smith, and for good reason. A 30-year veteran of the music business, he’s by far the busiest karaoke host in town, with weekly events at Cheers (Mondays), The Parkside Pub (Wednesdays), The Colby Beverage Room (Thursdays, Fridays) and other special events. “I used to do seven shows a week in my younger days,” he says. “I thought it would last maybe six months, and here we are going on 16 years.”

Runners-up: Mimi Andriopoulos, Laurie the Guy
