Smile Buffalo will reunite for the ‘Khwai Chuay Khwai’ charity concert at Centerpoint Studio on Saturday from 6pm.
Smile Buffalo, one of the most famous alternative rock groups of the 90s, will reunite for the "Khwai Chuay Khwai" charity concert this Saturday.
After nearly a decade away from the stage, the foursome _ Worachet "Chet" Empia, Teerapak "Ten" Maneechot, Pradit "Dit" Worasutpisit and Panus "Nueng" Apichartpongbutr _ will have its first full-scale concert to raise funds for the Royal Cattle and Buffalo Bank for Farmers.
"Recently, we have heard many stories about cattle running away from the slaughterhouse so we would like to do something to help those creatures," said Chet, the drummer.
The band did a gig in a small pub late last month and got quite good feedback from their fans.
"That time we raised a total of 125,000 baht in donations which later saved the lives of five buffalo," he said.
"This makes us feel that we're on the right track and we wish to keep on doing this."
A number of fellow artists will join Smile Buffalo on stage to help out the good cause. Guest artists include Sek Loso, The Must, Tan Outsider, Poo Blackhead and the MCs of the 168 Chua Mong TV programme.
Besides the musical showcase, other rockers from Proud, Audy and The Must will have a booth offering their albums and T-shirts.
There will also be an auction a metal buffalo sculpture.
"Khwai Chuay Khwai" will take place at Centerpoint Studio on Soi Lasalle on Oct 4 from 6-10pm. Tickets cost 1,000 baht and can be purchased from Thai Ticket Major booths. Call 02-262-3456 or visit www.thaiticketmajor.com
