City Club Tavern: User Reviews
As a member of the City Club, Oct. 31st 1989 until present, O........ all the nights of fun and
great entertainment at the City Club. There has been a group of diverse people and I might add very professional also enter those doors there from all over the world. In
mentioning some, South African Air Link pilots, owners of SPORTS teams, Broadcasters
and it could go on and on. These people come to see ROGER.....they have followed him
from the time he was in the service in Japan...............they come to see him and hear him
sing. Roger has always been professional in every aspect to those who wants to sing
trying not to offend anyone. I know several of us who dont sing..however, we put
our request in for songs that we want to hear ROGER sing.
When you mention ROGER singing several songs with out someone else singing, he is
only responding to some of the requests that others of us have requested!
I dont think you have considered some of us older folks who just love to hear that OLD
COUNTRY MUSIC we grew up on (that ROGER sings so nicely).
I have know ROGER many years before the CITY CLUB and yes, there also.
He is a professional!
Hopefully, you can understand that he is trying to entertain all of us.......yes even those of us who cant sing! We write down our request also.
Ive seen nights when there were more people signed up to sign than time left before closing. I think Charlies Bar and Grill and Timothy's is a great place to go, however,
they wont take my request there.
There could be a story there, however, no need for that! I go where I am entertained.
We first heard Roger sing at a bike rally at Shirley's Bar. What a blast. He was so awsome nobody else wanted to sing andwe were busy dancing and enjoying the way he mixed up the music. Roger did our wedding reception and everbody loved him. We follow him to all the bars he plays at, but City Club is our home base. Drinks are cheap and Roger even got me to sing karaoke for the first time. Anybody who doesn't enjoy good music can stay out. More room for us
The city club is small,but it is very clean.
Old does not mean dirty.
Roger has been playing at the city club for over three years,
if he was not making the bar money,he woudn't have a job.Report This Review
The ONLY reason I go to City Club is for karaoke with Roger ! I always have fun there and get to sing anything I want which depending on my mood could range from Alanis Morrisette to Beyonce, back to Green Day and then flippng to Al Green. It is clear to me that some people love to complain about nothing and do not know how to have a good time [tear :( ].
LOL.....UMMM Roger's guitar is plugged in and always jamming...I know this because he and I have jammmed LIVE together many times ! I love city club and I especially LOVE Friday and Saturday "karaoke with Roger"
A loyal fan............Whoooooo Roger Rocks !!!!Report This Review
Sorry, I've gotta agree with jbrabow. Don't worry though jbrabow, there are two great places in St. Charles that have Karaoke without having to deal with "Roger's Ego Show". One is Timothy's Irish Pub, and the other is Charlie's Bar and Grill. Both places are cleaner and bigger than City Club and both places have, as you described, more professional Karaoke. Its way more fun that listening to the same 30 country songs by Roger. Charlie's has karaoke every night, too!!! Hope to see you there, since I couldn't stand "karaoke with Roger" for quite a while now. Plus, both places run their Karaoke the way its supposed to be. People fill out slips and are put into a rotation to sing, and the K.J. doesn't sing unless there aren't paying customers willing to. Also, way less country at both places, so YAY!!!Report This Review
First, I would like to say that until this evening, City Club Tavern was one of my favorite bars to frequent and would have highly recommended it. Unfortunately I don't know if I'll be able to muster the effort to bring myself back there as I don't think I could possibly Stomach another one of their Friday or Saturday evenings of "Karaoke with Roger". The nights this travesty hosts Karaoke are, while amusing for a very brief period, so painful to experience that its not really worth enduring. Perhaps I'm not like most people, but I've come to expect karaoke to be an opportunity for the patrons of an establishment to entertain themselves and one another, however good or bad, singing songs they enjoy (sometimes embarrassing themselves in the process, but all in a spirit of friendly good times). "Karaoke with Roger", however, winds up being a sad and pathetic evening, because in place of letting patrons sing, the host bores guests with terrible country song after terrible country song, all while (and this really is the only funny part), pretending to play an electric guitar that isn't even plugged in. As the host, Roger behaves as if its his soul determination on who is, or isn't, allowed to sing. If Roger doesn't like your selection, or your ability to delight others with your voice, you get skipped over, or worse, you're not allowed to sing at all. The amateurish end result, for every one or two songs sung by patrons, Roger will sing anywhere from three to, about, fifteen painfully boring country songs, all in spite of the fact that people are leaving because they came to enjoy an evening of Karaoke with their friends vs. going to hear the same person perform over and over (perhaps they should just replace Karaoke nights with "Roger sings and pretends to play the guitar" nights, in order to eliminate any confusion on both Roger's and the patron's part). This also seems a bit amusing, as the majority of the clientele seems not to prefer country music. Roger does appear to, rather unprofessionally, enjoy the power he lords over the crowd as, if you criticize his lack of maturity, you're completely banned from singing at all. Simply put, if you are looking for a night of fun, drinks, good times, and karaoke with your friends, you would be best suited to go anywhere but to City Club Tavern on a Friday or Saturday. Its almost unfair to City Club to offer this 'one star' rating as, during the rest of the week, its a pretty great place to visit, but I assure you all, my friends and I will be spending our hard earned money anywhere else on Friday and Saturday nights. Perhaps City Club Tavern will make an effort to improve their Friday and Saturday nights. When I find they have, I will be the first to return there and will happily replace this review with a glowing ode to just how much I enjoy spending my money there.Report This Review
