What are some good wedding bands in Phnom Penh?

Post by The Suk Straggler »

I'm getting married in December. Can anyone recommend a good wedding band? A Cambodian band that is not crazy expensive and is actually . . . very good? Maybe one that can sing a few songs in English? Thank you!

Your phone playlist or youtube playlist is your best bet.

You honestly think you're going to get any say in this decision? My advice would be to step back from all wedding arrangements, lest you want to go insane, and let the locals do what the locals do. Most of the arrangements will be completed about 0-4 hours before the event, this is normal.

Does anyone here have any . . . actual band recommendations? My girlfriend wants me to help look she doesn't know any . . . she only just moved to Phnom Penh year ago from Siem Reap.

If it’s for your wedding, it won’t matter. Between wardrobe changes, pictures, and ceremonial dirties, you’ll never have time to enjoy it. I sure didn’t.

If hiring for some activity where you might get a chance to enjoy the music, have you gone with your significant other to the local nightclub? Owners there might be able to guide you in the direction for a band you might want.

I'm wondering why you are getting involved.

At these weddings the Groom is superfluous. You will not be thanked or appreciated for trying to help.

Just stump up the money, keep out of the way and let them do all of the work. There will probably be fights and arguments but at least you can't be blamed.

And don't expect anything to run on time. Time keeping has no meaning at these weddings.

Please forget that I even said wedding. What's a good live band for a big birthday party? Thank you.
