Hi all, its Carly here

Well what a few weeks we’ve had here at Tune Up. I am so happy to say that our new bar is complete and we love it! We can get all your yummy drinks to you so much more efficiently. And the rest of our renovations are almost complete.

Onto other topics there are a few commonly asked questions that people ask me every week. I thought i’d go into a bit more detail and try my best to answer them for you;

You don’t have the song I want… Can you get it?” Unfortunately we can’t. The manufacturer chooses songs based on a voting system. Our votes just wouldn’t be enough to make any changes I’m very sorry to say. In a lot of cases we don’t have your favourite Aussie artists as it is a Japanese system and the songs that are chosen are predominantly songs that are popular in America for e.g.. ACDC, INXS and Kylie Minogue are Aussie artists that are big in America and we have their songs. Then there are some songs that everyone wants to sing that are popular all over the world and I’m sorry to say I have no idea why we don’t have these songs. E.g. The gambler and Love shack

How often do you update your song list?” – Every 6 months. Roughly 300 songs each time.

Do you have to say good job?” – We just love saying it!!.. Well Kelcey and I love it… I have a feeling Bec and Georgie not so much. Good job has been said for years now.

What’s in the Power Ranger shots?” – There is Vodka, Peach Schnapps and different flavoured liquors and spirits in each – strawberry, banana, blue curacao, midori and a pink cowgirl type shot.

What are the private rooms?” – They are separate rooms from the main area where you have your very own karaoke machine. The advantage of the private room is that you don’t have to wait for your song like you do in the main area and if you are a little shy singing in front of people you don’t know. You can book the room out by the hour. Just a little tip, they are quite popular so best bet is to call and book in advance to avoid disappointment.

What are the most played songs at Tune Up?” – Well without blinking I can name these songs. Bohemian Rhapsody, Wonderwall, American pie, Under the bridge, To be with you and Living on a prayer.

I hope this has been helpful. If you have any other questions please feel free to shoot them my way 🙂

Until next time….

Good jaaarrrrrrrrb

What’s Your Story??

by on Sep.09, 2013, under info

As you weekend visitors may have noticed, our beloved Manager Carly was absent for a few nights (a girl’s gotta have a weekend off to let her hair down!), so naturally after not seeing each other for an ENTIRE week, we had a LOT to catch up upon arrival to my 10pm shift tonight. Anyhow…we got onto the conversation of this new TV show we’ve both gotten into and this show is pretty messed up, to the point of freaking my friends out… SO it got me questioning what people must think of me and the weird, crazy little interests and habits I have. It got me thinking about people, and in particular our customers and what crazy, funny and exciting lives you live outside of this bar!

I’d like to think that we all know most of our customers pretty well but the truth is, we really don’t. When you walk through that door at the start of the night, we don’t know where you’ve come from, who you were just with or what job you were DYYING to that day and similarly, when
you go home we don’t know what life you are going back to.

I know it sounds suuuuper creepy of me to explore this topic and pretty much admit that I’m wondering where you go when you leave this bar (I swear I don’t follow you) but it just makes me really curious about the story each of our customers has outside of this bar. For all I know, you
could be Princess Diana’s niece or your grandfather may have been on the Titantic when it sank or you may have just won $50 million moments before you walked into our bar….I just don’t know!!!!

I’ve always been questioned about my over-analysis of human behaviour and general curiosity in strangers but I think that in this modern, technological age where we’re all glued to our Iphones and Ipads, we don’t take enough time to get to know people and really find out their story. If we did, we did we may discover something really interesting….or just plain disturbing!

So where am I going with this may you ask??? Well…I think it’s important for all of us, and in particular us Tune-Up girls as Bar Hostesses to get to know our incredible customers…to find out their story and share ours. We love when you come in and tell us about your night or vent to us about your day at work. It makes us feel like we’re on the same level as you.

So come on in, tell us your story…or just sing about it 😉
