Jo’s thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon
A Little Dream has had the honour of serenading many banquets, but it was the bunch we met on Tuesday which might have worked the hardest ever for their fine fare.
On Tuesday, the Tanah Merah Country Club’s Garden Banquet Room hosted the happily worked-out contestants of the Golf Tournament finals. The hale, freshly showered golfers and their charming companions filled the lovely room with the view of the sprawling greens, all smiles and appetites as they awaited their well deserved fine fare, after a full day’s exertions in the harrowing heat.
Amidst flu season, it was lovely to see a room full of healthy, friendly faces which applauded warmly along to the requested repertoire of jazz, evergreens and Shanghai jazz….regardless of race or native language.
It’s not that often that this team gets to break out all the evocative classics from the old school, and I personally had a blast giving these styles a workout – hopefully one as satisfactory as the golfers from Tanah Merah Country Club got that day.
Band: Jo, Brad, Shawn, Feri
The team was made up of Feri on guitar, Shawn on percussion, Brad on saxophone and myself on vocals, and the songs we were delighted to bits to perform were:
夜上海 (Night In Shanghai), 月亮代表我的心 (The Moon Represents My Heart), 如果沒有你 (If I Don’t Have You), 我要你的爱 (I Want Your Love), 夜来香 (Fragrance In The Night), Let There Be Love, Fly Me To The Moon, Dream A Little Dream, Top Of The World, Close To You, What A Wonderful World
