Lucky Voice Pro frequently asked questions…
What is Lucky Voice Pro?
Lucky Voice Pro is our pay-as-you-go online karaoke streaming service for venues. In just a few simple steps, users gain access to over 8,000 songs and can host their own karaoke night with a PC or laptop and an internet connection. We charge £24.99 + VAT for a 24-hour session – no on-going charges or contracts. You simply pay as and when you use the service.
Do I absolutely need an internet connection?
Yes. Because songs are streamed, the service relies on an internet connection to run. Wireless is fine, although we always say wired is better. If you’re looking for a solution that isn't internet dependent, check out Lucky Voice Enterprise.
What equipment do I need?
Just a few bits and bobs and you're away:
- 1 × laptop or PC
- 1 × second screen or projector
- 1 × amplified speaker (or two)
- 1 × Party Box or mixer
- 1 × microphone (or two)
- connecting cables

What is a Party Box and do I need one?
The Party Box is our own Lucky Voice-branded mixer. It turns any computer into a karaoke machine by mixing together the music and the singer's voice. It also includes our iconic hot pink microphone! If you already have a simple use mixer as part of your venue's kit, it will work just fine – you don't need to buy ours.
Where can I buy a Party Box?
Party Boxes and spare microphones are available from our online shop.
Do I need a host or compere?
If you're running an open karaoke night, we recommend having someone there to facilitate the evening and keep track of customer requests. Things can get hairy with too many keeners wanting to get on the mic! Your host can be anyone from a member of staff to a professional karaoke jockey – we have customers who do very well with both options. For private parties, a compere is usually unnecessary.
I'm a KJ, can I use Lucky Voice Pro for my gigs?
Yes! Lucky Voice Pro is ideal for KJs. Our site allows you to search for tracks, build and save playlists and queue songs, making it easy to stay organised. We upload the latest chart hits regularly, saving you the hassle of keeping on top of what's new, ripping and renaming files and updating your songbook. (Download ours here instead!) Plus, if you're just starting out, there’s no need to pay thousands for a decent karaoke library. For £24.99 + VAT a session, you gain access to over 8,000 songs, beautifully texted in hi-res and perfectly timed. All our content is from quality, legitimate karaoke producers and licensed with PRS for Music.
Do you have a list of your catalogue I can search or download?
I’m only hosting a karaoke party for a few people at my venue – do I still have to pay the Pro rate?
Yes. If you’re using our service in a public or commercial context, you need to have a Pro license to do so. A standard Lucky Voice subscription does not allow for any non-personal use. Take a look at our Terms and Conditions for details in legalese!
I want a touchscreen setup like what you have in your bars. Do you offer this?
We do! Our Lucky Voice Enterprise software is available for a low monthly fee, which also gains you access to a wealth of resources to help you run your karaoke business. Watch our demo video here, find out about Enterprise here, or just give us a call on 020 7268 6404.
Does your fee cover my venue license for karaoke too?
No. You need to arrange for the appropriate cover with PRS for Music.
