Shangri-la

Kevin and Lixia, 9 Jan 2010, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Sweetness) We often get to hear about how a groom proposed to his bride on their wedding day, but what are the chances of watching a clip of the actual action that took place? Well at the wedding of Kevin and Lixia, guests were treated to a video montage which featured Kevin’s actual proposal to Lixia at East Coast Park. The couple was at the pier when Kevin presented her with flowers, got down on his knees…

Yao Ming and Javis, 3 Jan 2010 (Lunch), Island Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: These Are The Moments Yao Ming and Javis got to know each other as colleagues, and 8 years down the road, they celebrated their wedding at Shangri-La’s Island ballroom with 14 tables of families, close friends and relatives. ‘Small-scale affair’ as Yao Ming coined it, but with the high ceilings and the majestic decors of the Island Ballroom, I thought it made it all the more exclusive 🙂 The guests were a tad quiet that afternoon at the…

Darren and Yijue, 25 Dec 09, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Darren had a tough time figuring out when to propose to Yijue. Apparently, Yijue managed to find the ring each time they went on a romantic trip overseas. Darren said it quite succinctly, “I can’t keep any secrets from her!” I had such a great time performing at the wedding. The spirit of Christmas was certainly in the air, and when Eleanor sang, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, I could…

Deborah and Ken, 5 Dec 09, Garden Terrace, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: You’ve Got A Way “Hi, I’m planning for an engagement party this 5th of dec in the Shangri-La hotel-garden terrace. I happenned to come across your band online and thought it would be a great idea to invite you guys to share this joyous occasion with us.” What a fun party it was! Eleanor and Justin provided the entertainment, and served up a tantalising menu of jazz standards and love songs. The guests were enjoyed the intimate…

Derek and Meiting, 18 Oct 09, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s Thoughts: Lovin’ You I was thrilled to hear from Mei Ting again. Mei Ting and Derek engaged Hui Bing and Wilson for their solemnisation last year, and wasted no time in engaging Hui Bing again for the wedding reception a year on. Wilson wasn’t free that night, so I found Jun Xiong and Matthew to accompany Hui Bing. Hui Bing and Jun Xiong’s impeccable chemistry and Matthew’s inspired performance ensured a night of great music. Congratulations once again,…

Andy and Jaslyn, 21 Sep 09, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon Jaslyn and Andy approached A Little Dream more than 1 and a half year ago. Indeed, their early attention to our live band was flattering because it reflected that having live music was one of their priorities. One advantage about preparing for a wedding early is that you may have more time to brainstorm for ideas, and to execute the ideas. The couple had an astounding 4 changes of outfits, 4 video presentations,…

Cheryl and Gabriel, 8 Aug 09, Tower Ballroom, Shangri La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: So Amazing Cheryl and Gabriel clearly believe in not holding back when it comes to wedding planning. Theirs was one of the most memorable weddings I’ve attended this year. And here are some reasons why. Project Runway was the theme, and the couple selected the talented team from Boenga to translate their ideas from mere scribblings on a page to gorgeous reality. Mannequins wearing the some gorgeous threads (from Boenga!) were placed right in the centre of…

Johnson and Queenie, 16 Jan 09, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 我要你的爱 (I Want Your Love) The first things that caught my eye at Johnson and Queenie’s wedding were the favours. There were two different kinds; depending where you sit, you either get a red photoframe or a set of wine charms that spell L-O-V-E. Hosted by the actor Jason Chan (a family friend), the wedding celebrations got off to a great start. Bevlyn sang Fallen, and the guests welcomed Johnson and Queenie into the grand ballroom with…

Alan and Stephanie, 14 Dec 08, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Amazing Love Alan and Steph are brilliant and successful individuals in their own right, but had difficulty finding a soul mate. As the emcee put it, “I agreed to be Alan’s wedding emcee, and for the next ten years, he never failed to remind me of my duty.” On the other hand, Steph was wondering how many frogs she needed to kiss (just a saying, no offence to Steph’s previous boyfriends!) before she could meet her Prince…

(Wedding) Tracy and Gavin, 22 Nov 08, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La

Serene’s thoughts: When You Tell Me That You Love Me I always marvel at how it is so hard to describe love between two people. Yet, somehow or rather, there always comes along a song with immensely beautiful lyrics that touches the very core of you. Perhaps, words that you very much want to say to the love of your life, but never really found the right words to express yourself. Words that mean everything about that special someone…about everything…

(Wedding) Adrian and Cheryl, 26 Oct 08, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La

Jonathan’s thoughts: My Romance Part 2 of Adrian and Cheryl’s wedding was held at the grand Tower Ballroom of the Shangri-La. After performing at the couple’s solemnisation at Oosh, it was a refreshing change as we did an entirely different set of songs. Jazz standards were Melissa’s forte, and I had a lot of fun interpreting them with Joel and Kim Chye, two excellent musicians. Melissa’s smooth satiny voice carried the day, and we received quite a lot of applause!…

(Wedding) Janice and Steven, 20 Sep 08, Azeala Ballroom, Shangri-La

Adeline’s thoughts: Everything It was apparent that the couple was very thoughtful and appreciative of all family and guests who helped made this wedding possible. In our earlier exchange, Janice had a few songs in mind which she wanted to dedicate to these special people in hers and Steven’s life. And she did her very best to ensure that she did not inadvertently forget anybody. Another testimony to their friendliness and warmness was the fact that they had a number…

(Wedding) Eve and Hwoon, 19 Sep 08, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La

Serene’s thoughts: Lovely The march-in at any wedding is sacred…so much so it draws silence from the guests as they wait in anticipation to steal a glance of the couple.. so much so that at times in the almost pitch dark ballroom with just one spotlight falling on the beautiful couple as they walk down the isle, it could move some to tears, draw smiles and applause from the room, and make you feel like you want to fall in…

Li Yi and Joel, 7 Jun 08, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La

Daniel’s thoughts: I Wish You Jesus The wedding dinner was so romantic, from the story of how Joel and Li Yi met each other and how the groom dedicated his own original song to his beloved bride. There was also one special song requested by the couple’s friend, Eileen. The song was I Wish You Jesus. All of us in the band shared the same thought: that it’s really a good blessing song. True enough, Melissa’s performance not only touched…

Audrey and Justin, 7 Oct 06, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: I Will Taken by Live! Studios: Audrey and JustinOne of the reasons why I love singing at Shangri-La so much is because it has a small room right next to the Island Ballroom for us to rest and have our dinner before we perform. Chilling out before the performance. L-R: Eleanor, Jon and FeriOf course, the sheer opulence and grandeur of the ballroom never fail to take my breath away. We were one of the first bands…

Estella and Ben, 26 March 2006, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La Hotel

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 给我 (Give Me) Shangri-La! I am officially in love with Shangri-La Hotel. The acoustics are excellent, the staff are conscientious to a fault, and the banquet hall is magnificent. (Note: When describing Shangri-La Hotel, you have to use multi-syllabic words; “big”, “good” and “great” just won’t do.) Our voices were crystal clear, thanks to the sound system and acoustics. Even a whisper could reach the back of the hall without problems, so we had to careful not…
