BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – There is no question that Elvis Presley’s “Jail House Rock” is a top karaoke song….but for Travis Jordan it’s the only song he’ll be singing while sitting in “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge”.

While Karaoke is a fun time for everyone, even those that can’t sing, when your turn is done, you can’t whip out a machete in order to get one more song.

Apparently our friend Mr. Jordan here, didn’t fully understand the rules of karaoke, as when the stage lights turned off, he tried to force them back on by pulling out a machete he had concealed on him, and demanding to do an encore.

Well thankfully the employees of the bar were able to quickly convince him to give them the machete so they could calm everyone down.

When Deputy Josh Chamberlain and other BCSO Deputies arrived, Jordan, who was extremely intoxicated, told them he keeps the machete on him because he always need to stay alert.

Unfortunately, Jordan’s actions didn’t earn him another song on stage, but they did win him a trip to “Ivey’s Iron Bar Lodge” where every night is open mic night and he can sing any song he wants all night long.

Jordan was charged with Breach of Peace-Disorderly Conduct and I heard his top most requested songs during open mic night were…”Cuts Like a Knife” by Bryan Adams, “Back On The Chain Gang” by the Pretenders, “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash, “Prisoner of Love” by James Brown, and Junny’s personal favorite, “Ol’ Red” by Blake Shelton.
