    There's a little bar (possibly called Blues Bar) on Samsaen road, right across the little bridge near soi 2. You can walk there very quickly from Khao San road, or take a 40baht tuk tuk (just tell the driver "samsaen soi 2" and get off right after the bridge). This bar has a good little blues band that plays there most nights, and it's made up of both Thai and Expat musicians. I'm guessing that these people would be a good bet for finding out what the music scene is like in BKK.
    Otherwise, I've seen jazz and blues musicians at the nicer hotels in the sukhumvit and silom areas. Very lounge-y though...

    oh, there's also a great little Jazz bar near Wireless road (on soi srasin) called Brown Sugar.

    check out this link:

    The place I was talking about on Samsaen is one of the first in the "Other Areas" section, called "Ad here the 13th." The band is good. and friendly.

    Yup Adhere the 13th is a cracking little venue,small but very friendly. Georgia the singer is unlike any Thai singer I've seen before, and Pong the guitarist has one of the sweetest touches on guitar, he just sits there and plays an old beat up Telecaster. Also you might try to getin touch with a guy called Todd Lavelle, he is an American who organises festivals and gigs around Thailand, one of which is called the Rhythm of the Earth, and its a world music and BBQ festival under the Rama VIII bridge

    Thanks very much. I went to Adhere the 13th last night & got up to sing. Great place, nice people.
    I have been asked by a good hotel what my monthly fee would be. I don't know what the going rates are in Bangkok. Any idea ?

    cheers

    For the rate, i think ya gotta ask them each hotel. Barely seen male vocalist, though. Don't think they pay a lot for one. Big big hotels might. lol
    Don't just love him, but show him
