A night to remember: “Thank You for the Music”


Dear Editor,

I was recently invited to a charity function at the Jomtien Garden Hotel.  I must confess that I went reluctantly as I have attended many of these so called events over the years and have left somewhat disappointed.

Well that was not the case last Monday 31st January. We were all in for a show that had the audience standing and dancing in the aisles. Don’t let anybody tell you here in Pattaya (it was) “same same”, as this was a well produced show that entertained from Rock music to Opera. I cannot remember the names of the performers, who were incidentally all Thais and not imports, but the entire evening was perhaps the best night my husband and I have had here in Thailand over the last 14 years, and the best part was that not only did you get great entertainment and value for money it was all done for charity. In particular the backing band and singers were exceptional.

I hope this letter may find its way to the organizer and they will consider putting it on again so all those who didn’t attend could enjoy as much as we did. Well done performers; great night, great performance, let’s show Bangkok we can do it here in Pattaya.

From a very happy Pattaya resident.
