Nico’s and Unique Entertainment
There’s a buzz going around about this area’s Karaoke
scene the last few months. It’s all about Nico’s Karaoke
Pony and Unique Entertainment joining forces in January and moving
under one roof! They are now located at 16641 S.E. 82nd Drive in Clackamas,
suite 201, above the General Store and next to the Tombstone Music
Nico’s Karaoke Pony is still Oregon’s premiere Karaoke
retail store and continues to offer a wide variety of Karaoke commercial
and home products, including CDGs and software, Karaoke system sales
and rentals, installations, consultations and system design. It’s
been said, “If you can’t find it anywhere else, try Nico’s!” The
Karaoke Pony has been in business for nine years in the Sellwood area,
so there’s no questioning its expertise and experience. How could
this pony possibly get any better?
Greg Swain and Dean Cramer, owners of Unique Entertainment, have also
been around the Karaoke scene for some time, providing high quality,
24/7 sound and lighting equipment setups and engineering expertise.
Unique Entertainment is Portland’s finest Karaoke and DJ service
The blending and expansion of these two great businesses and their
move to a new location that provides the opportunity to expand will
help them become the best Karaoke service in the west! Together, Nico’s
Karaoke Pony and Unique Entertainment will be able to offer additional
services such as hosted events, the best quality rental systems, Karaoke
for kids, an expanded selection of Karaoke music and a recording studio.
In addition, Wind, Swain and Cramer are also proud to introduce Karaoke
Concerts, a group of professional entertainers who provide an unforgettable
show at clubs and other venues in the Portland area. The events feature
contests that award talented novices free recording sessions and the
opportunity to work with experienced entertainers in a rehearsed show

quality of sound possible. He’s really easy and fun to work with
and his patience, knowledge and skill are legendary!
