ASPEN ” So you want to be a rock star? And not just with an air guitar, or singing karaoke standards to a recorded soundtrack in some corner of a cheesy bar? Rock Star Karaoke Night is your chance to belt it out and shine.

The stage is a great one ” the Belly Up Aspen’s, where Joe Cocker and Deborah Harry have opened their considerable pipes. The music is played by a live band, right there onstage with you.

As for the songs ” well, if you want a cheesy karaoke number, there’s plenty to choose from: “Celebration,” “Copacabana,” “Come on Eileen” ” and that’s only the Cs. But there are also some decent enough tunes on the play list, including Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir,” LaBelle’s “Lady Marmalade,” and Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets.” (Anyone going to try those high notes?)
