‘Calories Blah Blah’ could be the statement of some corpulent people who don´t want to stop feasting despite their obesity, but in fact it is the name of one of Thailand´s most popular music bands.
The group was recently in town to perform live at the Amari Orchid Pattaya’s Tavern by the Sea and to present their newest album “Love Delivery” in a mini but full swing concert.
Pongkul Suebsung ‘Pop’ serenades the audience.
Due to the immense popularity of the band and to the reasonable entrance fee of only 950 baht, which included free flow drinks like beer and wine and some appetizers, multitudes of music lovers, mainly Thai, attended the evening. It was indeed a ‘full house’ attended by more than 450 fans which filled up Pattaya’s newest bar – which was transformed into a concert hall for the night.
The evening of music began at 7 p.m. with the opening performance by the support act ‘Sky in Love’, then at about 9 p.m. David Cumming, General Manager of the Amari Orchid Pattaya, and Mayor Itthiphol Khunplome officially opened the main show together with the appearance of the popular duo ‘Pop’ Pongkul Suebsung and ‘Win’ Aswin Duriyangkul of Calories Blah Blah, an introduction that was accompanied by lots of cheering from excited fans.
Aswin Duriyangkul ‘Win’ is all smiles as the band strum out another of their hit songs.
The band sung their favorite tunes such as ‘Rudoo okhag’ (broken heart season), ‘Patiharn Thee Ro Koi’, (miracle I’m waiting for), ‘Ya pai nai eek na thur’, (please don’t go away), ‘Kon thee mai kao taa’, (I’m never in your eye) and many more. Even the mayor joined in the fun by singing a duet of the famous song ‘Mai roojak chan mai roojak thur’ (I don’t know you and you don’t know me) with the lead singer Pop.
Everyone in attendance appeared to have a lot of fun and there were many spot prizes given out such as room nights at Amari Ocean Tower, Sunday brunch or wine dinner set at Mantra Restaurant & Bar, and seafood BBQ buffet on Saturday or carvery night on Thursday at Tavern by the Sea. Even the Amari Emerald Cove Koh Chang and Amari Watergate Hotel had put up one prize each.
Watch out for many more great concerts and activities coming soon at the Amari Orchid Pattaya.
