Jory Bush 

Karaoke jockey

With four shows a week in bars all around the city, chances are you've seen and maybe sung in front of KJ (that's karaoke jockey) Jory Bush. This Atlanta native and manager of Bob's Karaoke has been a host in more than 20 venues over the last 10 years, proving he must have the patience of a saint.

A singer himself, Jory got his start with the Atlanta Boys Choir and has been in a number of bands.

Jory admits that he could do without certain songs, including "Summer Nights," "Killing Me Softly" and "Love Shack." And if you want to avoid a big karaoke faux pas, don't request a nine-minute song like "American Pie" at the end of the night.

"Diana DeGarmo from 'American Idol' used to stop by sometimes. And occasionally bands who are in town will come in and sing to their own songs on the karaoke machine." Jory has even had some members of Atlanta's pro sports teams test their talents on the stage.

Nightlife is Jory's life. Catch him all around town, including Mondays at Peachtree Tavern and Wednesdays at Sports Time in Gwinnett.
