Well, I wouldn’t have believed it with my own eyes, but apparently ASICentral’s multi-talented designer/radio engineer/brewmeister Steve “Chinstrap” Hawk is also a hit on the dance floor! (Well, at least in his own mind.)
In this video from the famed ASI Show Gala, held Thursday night at Eddie Deen’s Ranch in Dallas, not only does Chinstrap don the ASI TV mic like a seasoned television reporter, but he gets down like Diddy, Line Dance-style. Watch a video of the ‘Strap schmoozin’ the ladies while learning some southern dance moves. Yee-haw, go on with your big self, Steve-O! Watch the video here.
And if that’s not enough party video for ya, check out this clip of ASI’s Melinda Ligos and Joe Haley interviewing other folks at the famed ASI Show Gala!
Stay tuned for coverage from the official Day 2 of The ASI Show Dallas!
Reporting remotely — and jealously — from Trevose, PA …

karaoke jammy-jams just ain’t my bag, baby. something about getting up on stage after a few drinks and trying to croon like you’re a rat-packer just never appealed to me. the bad speaker systems, cheesy lighting, obtrusive teleprompter — i don’t know, but it all just seems so … amateur. like jim carrey in ‘the cable guy’ belting out starship’s ‘somebody to love,’ it can be mildly entertaining at first but ultimately takes a turn for the worst.
so you can imagine my expectations for thursday’s ASI Cabaret Night were, to say the least, lower than the DOW lately. even with ‘American Idol I’ runner-up justin guarini in the house acting as the MC of song, i still wasn’t buying into the karaoke kool-aid.
but i went, and i’m glad i did, because the end result was nothing short of unexpected, and there were a number of highlights, including:
and last, but not least
oh, and did i mention i just happened to have my camera with me? which leads me to the meat & potatoes of this post … PICS! enjoy. (click on images for larger, high-res versions)
