Guts and Glory

All eyes are on you as you take the stage. Adrenaline pumps through your veins as throngs of friends cheer you on. The music starts, you take a deep breath, and you go for it.

Welcome to District Karaoke, D.C.'s only social karaoke league. It's team-based, which means you roll with your crew, or make new friends as a free agent. It's competitive, meaning you take it just as seriously as everyone in the "ball" leagues (meaning you take it way more seriously than you should). Your fellow singers are your judges, and you'll return the favor, with our scientifically-tested online scoring system."

Meet The Team

Jesse B Rauch


Jesse B, the founder and Commissioner of District Karaoke, started the league to establish a community of awesome folks in the District who like to sing. Over 5 years later, District Karaoke, and its sister leagues, comprise the largest karaoke league in America. Jesse B does have a day job though - he works for a women's advocacy non-profit where he manages the nation's largest effort to empower women to confidently and successfully negotiate their salary and benefits in service of closing the gender pay gap. Jesse B is a graduate of Boston University and American University and lives in Washington, DC.

    The More We Drink, the Better You Sound

  • I should tell you our unofficial motto: Anyone can kick a ball, but only ballers can belt a ballad.

    The Commissioner

  • We compete. It's not really about the winning; it's about having fun. But the competition is the fun.
