Yes, it is, with a number of great live music venues now in Phuket and a lot of not only Thai but Philippine musicians on the Island it really is starting to happen.
Of course, there are a lot of clubs with the ability to host many International DJ’s but getting a LIVE big-name singer or band to Phuket is not easy, both financially and logistically. Not forgetting the various charity dinners that have live performances.
Most recently Bodyslam was in Phuket and a sold-out concert (at 300thb a ticket) was a success.
Andy Anderson ran The Phuket International Blues Festival for some years.
Always a great weekend for everyone to enjoy live music. Phuket Island radio was partners in this weekend for some time.
With International stars such as Eric Bibb, Charlie Musselwhite (pictured) Irish band Grainne Duffy.
Chris Thomas King, KNiKi, Rich Harper are all supported by the locals, Bangkok’s Cannonball.
Phuket’s Groove Doctors, Token, The Rockin’ Angels and still going strong Colin Hill and Jimmy Fame.
Alas, it doesn’t look like it will happen again.
Enjoy Live Music? Here’s a gig.
Saturday, November the 19th it’s the 7th High Season Lift off party at Serenity Resort and Residences and East 88 Restaurant and Beach Lounge.
