    Live Music

    I've been going to Mojos on soi 33. Would welcome other recommendations for live music venues. Maybe along Sukhumvit Road. Prefer Rock and Roll.

    The Philippino Band at the Huntsman under the Landmark hotel are good and you always have the Spasso's Bar under the Hyatt Erawan Hotel (although those bands play mainly R&B).

    I go to Mojos regularly and the band is just OK compared to others around.

    Brown Sugar, Soi Sarasin for Jazz/blues. Saxophone Pub, near Victory Monument for Blues/Jazz.

    Downscale but good live R&R, 5 Star on Soi Cowboy. Band starts at 10PM. A few farangs drop by and jam with the band. Saw a good farang drummer playing there a while back.

    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I've been to Tokyo JoesSukhumvit Soi 24 a couple of times. It's OK.
    Lot's of live music venues so take your pick based on your preference and budget.

    Then you have the Hard Rock which always has decent bands but I find the venue in Bangkok to be small and claustrophobic.

    The thing that makes the them stand out is that they can play most requests and don't stick to the usual 10 song play-list like that Elvis dude in Country Road and the other shit band.
    Took the piss one night and started singing Tarzan Boy by Baltimora and the fuckers only played it!
    Top blokes.
    Oh. For you boys who don't know the 80's. Here it is..............

    You should try getting to the drum kit and when you are pissed.

    Yes a very good band and as I said before the guitarist rocks.

    I thought you did great. Course I was as pissed as you. My driving was far worse than your drumming.

    Indeed.

    I thought we were on our way to Santahip when we should of been driving in the opposite direction to Soi 23.

    Anyway we made it and I certainly enjoyed your company and yes it seemed everybody knew you on that soi.

    Hillary 2 on Soi 4 has live band most nights. I think the owner rotates them with Climax.

    Chad Smith in town?
    What a bummer I missed him.

    I also missed Jimmy Page last weekend as I have been informed he played a set with Lam Morrison's combo at the Blues Factory.

    Fok I would of loved to have been there.

    ^^Dave from Blues Factory denies that JP played. Dave says JP stopped by, but did not play. It would appear to a joke by another poster on TV.

    ^ Well Dave should know.

    In fact I read about him playing at The Blues Factory on this forum and on a thread launched about the Jesters Charity Event.

    Anyway if JP didn't I don't feel so bad now........

    It was another boardmember on TV trying to be funny, I was told that he'd popped in the bar, I didn't see him though so can't confirm.
