An Unforgettable Evening of Karaoke with Garaoke, Fatboy, and Slim at The Warren Bridge Inn, Dawlish Warren




Karaoke Dawlish Warren Review

As the sun began its descent on a Sunday evening, I found myself taking a leisurely stroll through the charming town of Dawlish Warren. Little did I know that my evening would take an unexpected turn, leading me to an unforgettable karaoke experience at The Warren Bridge Inn.

Entering the pub, I was immediately greeted by the lively sounds of music and laughter emanating from the raised stage area. There, two charismatic individuals, Jason and Gary, stood tall, commanding the attention of everyone in the room with their infectious energy and undeniable talent.

Jason, known affectionately as Fatboy, and Gary, the mastermind behind the karaoke extravaganza, were a dynamic duo like no other. While Gary, the host of the show known as Garaoke, led the charge with his magnetic personality, Jason brought his own flair to the stage, drawing on years of experience in the world of entertainment.

Their partnership was a testament to their versatility and skill, having previously marketed themselves as Fatboy and Slim during their time in Cyprus. Together, they had embarked on countless adventures, from opening clubs in Nicosia to hosting Christmas shindigs for the UN – experiences that had undoubtedly shaped their dynamic stage presence.

Quite a pedigree to be honest between them; Garaoke was the resident Karaoke at Tommy’s Pub in the heart of Nissi Avenue, Ayia Napa, while Jason had hosted at Karystos Tavern, Ayia Napa, and had also dazzled audiences with gigs back in Devon. Jason’s music background runs deep, as his late father was the drummer with the famous sixties band Johnny Kidd and The Pirates. With such a rich history, it’s no wonder these two were bound to create magic on stage in Dawlish.

Sure enough, the night was filled with an eclectic mix of songs, from classics like “Sweet Home Chicago” to hits like “Be My Baby Tonight” by John Michael Montgomery. There were singers, wailers, and even a few hailers who took the stage, each adding their own unique flavor to the evening.

However, no performance is without its challenges, and on this particular night, it came in the form of two grumpy patrons seated near the door. Despite the warm evening temperatures, they seemed more concerned with their own comfort than the enjoyment of those around them, grumbling with each disturbance of the door. Their repeated complaints, punctuated by claims of being “cabin crew,” elicited a chuckle from the crowd – after all, if they wanted extra legroom, perhaps they should have sprung for the upgrade or packed their own blankets!

But even with the antics of the cabin crew in tow, Jason and Gary, or Fatboy and Slim, or Garaoke – whatever they preferred to be called – delivered a performance that was nothing short of magic. Their ability to entertain and uplift the crowd was unparalleled, turning what could have been a minor inconvenience into a memorable moment.

As the night drew to a close, it was clear that Karaoke nights at The Warren Bridge Inn had become a cherished tradition in Dawlish Warren. With Garaoke at the helm and occasional appearances by Fatboy and Slim, each Sunday night promised to be a whirlwind of music, laughter, and memories.

So, to those looking for a night of entertainment unlike any other, I urge you to make your way to The Warren Bridge Inn. Join Garaoke, Fatboy, Slim, and a cast of talented performers for an evening that is sure to leave you singing and smiling long after the music fades away.
