La Jolla, San Diego, CA, November 18, 2008. Today marks the debut of the official website for Woo and Friends Karaoke at the Sheraton La Jolla, featuring the incomparable Gerrie Woo, former Playboy Bunny, as host of one of the most exciting and longest running karaoke shows in San Diego. Woo , who has entertained millions around the world with her singing and dancing, brings her finely tuned sense of professionalism to the karaoke stage.

Gerrie Woo got her start in show business as a Las Vegas show girl in Marshall Edson’s review, Holiday in the Orient, Woo (as she prefers to be called) was selected from many hopefuls to open the Hollywood Playboy Club as one of the original Playboy Bunnies. Following her time with the Hollywood Playboy Club, Woo was offered an opportunity to pursue a singing career with popular entertainer “Mr. Bongo,” Jack Costanzo. Jack, who at one time performed with the likes of Stan Kenton, Judy Garland and Nat King Cole, introduced the conga drum to jazz and rock music. With her combination of talent and verve, it was apparent right from the start that Woo was the perfect addition to the Costanzo group.

While on tour at the El San Juan in Puerto Rico, Tico label signed Woo to do an album with Jack Costanzo called Latin Percussion with Soul. Other albums followed, notably their most popular album, Viva Tirado on the Crescendo Label. The group went on to entertain the American GIs at USO shows in Vietnam, the Philippines and Bangkok. For over 25 years, Costanzo and Woo continued to entertain around the world in their unique and dynamic style with a mixture of Latin music, R&B, jazz, rock and classic ballads. Later on Woo fronted other groups such as Pitch and Woo and Woo’s Folly, but admits that the performing chemistry between her and Jack Costanzo was special.

Visit the MUSIC section of the Wookaraoke.com website, designed by Wunderwebs.com, to listen to clips from some of her songs she recorded with Jack Constanzo. Most music aficionados proclaim these recordings to already be jazz classics! Also check out the PHOTOS section where you will not only find gallery of the Woo and Friends Karaoke singers (updated weekly) but also photos of Woo’s early years as Playboy Bunny and photography model for world famous photographer, Peter Gowland. The KARAOKE NOTES section contains articles written by Woo divulging some of the secrets of her success as a karaoke host in San Diego. Learn about her “No Nonsense” rotation that makes her shows anything but your traditional karaoke show. Better yet, visit Woo at she shows at the Sheraton La Jolla and experience what it’s like to sing with a musical legend at the controls.

Frank Rhoades of the San Diego Union-Tribune once described Gerrie Woo as “one of the top performing singers in San Diego.” Today anyone who has seen her karaoke shows at the Sheraton would easily admit she is, indeed, the best. It Woo’s sincere philosophy that the karaoke stage at the Sheraton is not her performance arena, but rather a place for seasoned singers to showcase their abilities, and the perfect platform for up and coming talent to learn and enjoy the art of entertaining.
