You’re in holiday mode on Koh Samui, you’ve eaten a delicious dinner, there’s a gentle breeze and you’re feeling great. This is the perfect time to relax your night with some music and, preferably, a cold beverage in hand during moments like these. Is it going to be reggae, acoustic music, or rock and roll?
If you've had a terrible day and need something to cheer you up, live music is a wonderful option.

Going out to watch live music also shows that you support the local scene. Musicians, venues, and artists all need this kind of help.
