Breaking down the barrier between artist and audience, Karaoke From Hell has been a staple of Portland nightlife for two decades.
Founded in the spring of 1992 by Dawn Panttaja and Tres Shannon, Karaoke From Hell is among the first live karaoke bands in existence. Participants choose from a list of over 600 songs to sing, backed by a full band (and a fair amount of stage antics). They made their first Treefort Music Fest appearance in 2013, playing at the beautiful El Korah Shrine for three nights. Singers included a combination of festival performers and guests, making it a wholly unique and unforgettable experience for all involved.
