Pan @ Baan Korat

Pan (as in Frying Pan or SaucePan, not as in the Thai word for one thousand) have been playing in Baan Korat for as long as most people remember and they always go down well with the enthusiastic audience. They are the usual Thai club big band format of a male vocalist, female vocalist, two guitarists, a keyboard player, bassist and drummer. But unlike a lot of the other clubs in the city they are never joined on stage by dancers.

They play every night apart from on Public Holidays when the venue is closed, starting at 12:30am and finishing at 2:00am. 

Unlike the other two bands who play at the venue (The Co. and Bora Phet) Pan do very little traditional Thai, Country Thai or Thai Folk, concentrating on performing very good renditions of a number of Thai and Western pop and rock songs.

The Thai songs are the usual mix, Bodyslam, Loso, Silly Fools etc. and unfortunately a lot of the Farang songs they play are a little obvious and overplayed such as Hotel California and Zombie, but that said they do sometimes surprise the audience with their excellent version of I will survive by Gloria Gaynor, a number of Lilly Allen songs as well as a great version of What you know by Three Door Cinema Club (how this song has become so popular in Thailand I have no idea but it's amazing many Thai bands play it).

There is no dance floor in the club with the tables right up until the stage but that doesn't stop the audience from dancing, they just stand up at their tables and boogie away. Grabbing their drinks for a quick sip or even eating their meals while in dance mid flow. It has to be said that in terms of atmosphere Baan Korat is one of the best clubs in the city, it's always well attended and those who go there go to enjoy - they dance, they drink, they sing along, they drink, they eat, they raise their glasses to any Farangs who are present and generally have a fun time from when they get there until they leave.

Baan Korat is a great night out - no frills, no pretence, just great music, very well played by fine musicians, in front of one the most enthusiastic audiences you'll find in any club anywhere.

Baan Korat is one of the oldest live music venues in Korat and is situated on Gudan Road very near to Stories and La Daneng Vietnamese Restaurant, It's open every day from 7:00pm until 2:30am with three bands per night.
