Keegan and Susanne, 30 Oct 2010, Traders Hotel

Adeline’s thoughts: Love Will Keep Us Alive I smiled to myself when I found out that Susanne was a fan of Corrinne May. I love Corrinne May too and I immediately thought of playing a few of her songs if the opportunity arose. Don’t know if Susanne realized, I played “five loaves and two fishes” as an instrumental after the 2nd march-in, during the Champagne pouring and first toast. Keegan and Susanne struck me as a very sincere and sporting…

Kelvin and Joanne, 12 Sep 2010, Orchard Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Tanya’s thoughts: Amazed The highlight of the night was definitely Kelvin’s performance of Amazed. I think he definitely made some jaws drop with his powerful singing. Kelvin also presented Joanne with a huge bouquet of red roses at the end of the song. What a romantic! Band: Jerome, Tanya, Adeline and Fabian L-R: Tanya, Adeline, Joanne, Kelvin, Fabian, JeromeRepertoire: From This Moment (1st March in), Love Story, For The First Time, Angels Brought Me Here, You’re Still The One, My…

Xerene and Gavin, 8 Aug 2010, Hotel InterContinental (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Rebirth Gavin wanted me to interview him before the start of the banquet. A rather unusual request, but I obliged of course, and asked, “So are you ready to relinquish your bachelorhood?” All the lovely photos in this entry were taken by Yong How from 1950Photography Gavin actually paused and said, “Let me think about it…” When Xerene entered the ballroom, she appeared to be gliding down the aisle on a pair of invisible wings. Her graceful…

Adele and Irwin, 16 May 2010, Peach Garden (Wedding Live Band)

Adeline’s thoughts: 花好月圆 (Beautiful Flowers, Full Moon) This was Adele and Irwin’s second wedding reception. They had one just the night before, with an alfresco theme, for their friends. This second reception was mainly for their older family members and relatives and what a small world it was. Just as we were warming up, we had two guests who came up to us to tell us that they remembered us, that Hui Bing and I played for their daughter’s wedding.…

Julius and Joan, 15 May 2010, Four Seasons (Wedding Live Band)

Tanya’s thoughts: Two Words There was no better way for Julius and Joan to hold their wedding celebration than to have a luxurious banquet for their guests at the lush and magnificent ballroom of Four Seasons hotel. The couple’s attention to detail was painstaking and no efforts from them were spared in ensuring that the guests were comfortable and having a good time; from their choice of the banquet menu to individually customised wedding favours. The highlight of the evening…

Yenly and Tony, 13 Mar 2010, Seafood International, [email protected] Coast (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: When You Believe Singaporeans like to have their weddings in hotels…big ones, boutique ones, brand new ones. So now and then it’s nice to see a wedding that’s not in a hotel, but in East Coast Park! Specifically, the very beautiful Indonesian couple, Tony and Yenly, elected to officiate their nuptials in the very lovely grounds of Seafood International, smack in the middle of the seaside East Coast Park. Outside the banquet area, you can stand in a…

Chay Pin and Lulu, 31 Jan 2010, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Adeline’s thoughts: 就是爱你 (Just Love You) What makes a wedding special and memorable is when a couple adds a personal touch to it. For Chay Pin and Lulu, they decided to sing for their 2nd march-in (今天你要嫁给我 – Marry Me Today). And I must say they did a really good job. With smiles from cheek to cheek, holding each other’s hand, looking into their partner’s eyes and singing the song as they walked down the aisle, it was a love…

Jackie and Clara, 30 Jan 2010, Raffles Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Eleanor’s thoughts: The Wedding Song Jackie’s family, the Yau family, came all the way from Hong Kong. The ladies were all very slim and elegantly and fashionably dressed, e.g. Jackie’s mom wore a short champagne dress with a ketupat weave for the solemnisation and a champagne fur-trimmed cheongsam for the dinner, while his sister-in-law wore a Grecian draped gown showing off an unbelievably trim figure despite her having two children. Jackie’s brother was in a suit with a great cut…

Barry and Jeslyn, 10 Jan 2010, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s thoughts: Grow Old With You After the 2nd march-in, Barry was asked to complete five sentences (in the dialect Hokkien) starting with “I love you because _______ “. Barry’s answers were: 1. “I love you because you are very pretty.” 2. “I love you because you are very good.” 3. “I love you because you are very adorable.” He ran out of words, and the emcee asked him to complete the last two sentences by sharing with everyone present…

Marguerite and Jason, 9 Jan 2010, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: On This Day For Marguerite and Jason, they thought they could make it down the aisle peacefully like other couples. However, their fun-loving emcees decided to incorporate a twist. So the lights dimmed and the emcees made their first announcement. Jason’s colleagues from the military marched in and lined themselves along the aisle, cutting a fine sight with their smart uniforms and swords. Next entered Marguerite and Jason and the swords gradually retreated as the couple marched…

Adele and Leok Lim, 3 Jan 2010, Straits Room, Fullerton Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Tanya’s thoughts: 至少还有你 (At Least There Is You) Adele and Leok Lim’s wedding was a cosy and intimate affair among relatives and close friends. The joy was apparent on the beaming and excited faces of guests who turned up to join in the celebrations. What particularly struck a chord in our hearts that night was the speech given by the groom – it was heartfelt, sincere and poignant. We then learnt that due to a very unfortunate turn of events,…

Linda and Derrick, 3 Jan 2010, Fullerton (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: A Love That Will Last More often than not, live bands come late to the party. For some, we are an afterthought, after couples realise they have some money left after booking wedding venue, photographers, bridal studio, and a whole lot of other vendors.  That’s why we often depend on word-of-mouth (from either friends or wedding vendors) for couples to know about us before their funds are committed elsewhere.  Luckily for us, Linda contacted me soon after receiving a…

Kenneth and Shirley, 20 Dec 09, Vanda Ballroom, Marina Mandarin (Wedding Live Band)

Judy’s thoughts: My Valentine This was my first time singing at Vanda Ballroom. Nice cosy ballroom and really cold. But the place was quickly warmed up when the guests arrived and filled the ballroom with their chatter. Kenneth had come down to meet us just to oversee things. I was quite bemused with the expression on his face. He looked like a child who had been given a truckload of candies and didn’t know what to do with it. He…

Azhar and Sri, 29 Nov 09, Crowne Plaza, Changi Airport (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: We Could Be In Love Imelda, Adeline and I had a fantastic time at Azhar and Sri’s wedding! The evening got off to a great start when we met Azhar’s friend, Yasser, who made sure our every need was taken care of. He even took some food from the buffet line and asked us to help ourselves during our break! I was glad to finally meet Azhar, as we had communicated over numerous e-mails to determine which…

Li Ying and Shun Yuan, 14 Nov 09, Orchid Room, Holiday Inn Parkview (Wedding Live Band)

Junxiong’s thoughts: 爱爱 (Love Love) After 5 full years of courtship, ShunYuan & LiYing finally tied their knot together on this very day! Though this wedding couple is a little shy and reserved, they could never hide their happiness from their beaming smiles throughout the night. The songs chosen by the couple were also very applauded and well-received by the guests. One Chinese love song 爱爱 is especially popular among the guests which easily caught their attention with the up-tempo…

Celine and Preman, 1 Nov 09, One Rochester (Wedding Live Band)

Shawn’s thoughts: Let Down, Let Go, and Get High Eager to move, ready to sway. An intimate group of friends and relatives who boogied a full 90mins and asked for more! Judy, our singer for the evening, was snappy quick to suss out the guests’ musical preferences and modified our songlist to hook the “gold people” while entertaining the party fellas. She also got a french guest to dedicate “With Or Without You” by U2 to the couple, with everyone…

Dixon and Janette, 31 Oct 09, Phoenix Ballroom, Novotel Clarke Quay (Wedding Live Band)

Adeline’s thoughts: Forever Love The bride’s Jie-meis (bridesmaids) were certainly rather innovative in their games when the groom and xiong-dis (groomsmen) came to pick the bride. Very often the bride doesn’t get to experience the fun involved as the groom & xiong-dis try to ‘break the gate’. She can only get to see it in a video after the wedding is over. One way around this was to make full use of the wonders of technology – video conferencing! The…

Justina and Dae Ro, 30 Oct 09, Raffles Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: My Way It’s always lovely to see the enthusiasm that our foreign friends pour into our time-honoured tradition of the Chinese wedding banquet. Justina and Dae Ro are an international couple of Singaporean and Korean origins respectively, and bride, groom and their families threw all aspects of their different cultures into the mix, making for one fabulous fusion banquet! While ostensibly following the conventional program of the wedding banquet – cake cutting, cross drinking, yam seng and assorted…

Lynn and Donny, 25 Oct 09, Marriott Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Tonight I Celebrate My Love For You Lynn and Donny’s wedding has several firsts for me. It was the first time hearing the phrase ‘Bon appetit’ being uttered in more than one language by Lynn and Donny’s eloquent emcees. I counted more than 6, which includes Thai, Japanese and Korean. It was definitely a great introduction to the sumptuous dinner which followed. It was also our first time, singing so many duets for a wedding – 12…

Angelina and Markus, 25 Oct 09, Mandarin Oriental (Wedding Live Band)

Jun Xiong’s Thoughts: I Finally Found Someone As the the melodic piece “I finally found someone” was played during Markus and Angelina’s wedding photo montage, I felt that it perfectly describes their deep feelings for each other. Here’s how the song goes: “I finally found someone, That knocks me off my feet I finally found the one, That makes me feel complete …” That was also what Markus personally revealed to me with a beaming smile, that Angelina and himself are perfectly…
