Pei Xu and Mei Qi, 20 Nov 2010, Swissotel The Stamford

Jo’s thoughts: Love, Me I wasn’t able to make many weddings in November due to another performance project, but I’m just glad that I was able to make this one. Pei Xu and Mei Qi had popped down to another wedding where I had been singing at a poolside, to meet me and talk about possibilities for performing for them. Not knowing who the goodlooking twosome walking in my direction were, I was already jealous of the woman’s svelte figure…

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…

Kialing and Weilian, 30 Jan 2010, Orchidville (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: Sweet Pea Kialing and Weilian decided to have a less conventional wedding – instead of the more standard hotel event, they began the rest of their wedded life literally in bloom — at the lush and summery Orchidville, with a restaurant complete with towering trees and a riot of blossoms surrounding the dinner tables. Of course, the lush landscape was merely the stage for our stars of the night. There’s a Chinese idiom 郎才女貌, literally talented man, beautiful…

Eddy and Andrene, 23 Jan 2010, La Cantina, Changi Village Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: My Heart Will Go On While big ballrooms are beautiful, it’s a whole new level of lovely to experience a wedding peopled entirely by all of 40 close relatives and friends, in the sparkling setting of La Cantina, a rave reviewed Italian bistro complete with a breezy outdoor pool and an azure sea view from the rooftop of Changi Village Hotel. Gorgeous view Each of the exclusive group of guests was wonderful, smiley and supportive, but the loveliest…

Chun Wing and Leya, 28 Nov 09, Canning Ballroom, Fairmont (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet) Chun Wing and Leya’s wedding was a massive ball for everyone concerned- and by massive we mean MASSIVE, and by ball, we do mean it was just like a royal ball. It was a huge do in the sprawling spaces of the Swissotel Canning Ballroom, adorned with flowers and, of course, gorgeous guests. It was expertly emceed by a DJ from 933 fm, and us the band were given a special dedicated stage to do…

Kevin and Jean, 21 Nov 09, M Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: 我只在乎你 (I Only Care For You) To people in the wedding music business, it’s not unheard of for the most beautiful ceremonies to devolve into just another day at the office (albeit a very grand and beautiful office full of happy people). So At A Little Dream, it’s always important, and lovely to hear the personal stories of the new couple. And there are few better sweet, personal stories to keep bands from potential apathy than ‘the groom…

Jason and Rachel, 1 Nov 09, Casuarina Ballroom, Raffles Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: Beyond The Sea Rachel decided on Beyond The Sea for her March-In song, and no wonder — her groom Jason was an avid sailor, traversing the oceans until unexpectedly, he found somewhere to drop anchor at last…where his beautiful bride Rachel was. It’s a very beautiful story of romance between two continents that brought tears to the eyes of the band as well as the guests, perhaps best summed up in the loosely recalled words of Jason’s father,…

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…

Siew Mei and Ivan, 18 Oct 09, Sir Stamford Room, Grand Hyatt (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: 今天你要嫁给我 (I’ll be Marrying You Today!) Last Sunday was highly memorable because a) it was the day before my birthday b) the day after I got a horrible fever and throat infection and most importantly c) the actual day of Siew Mei and Ivan’s wedding lunch at the Grand Hyatt. Siew Mei and Ivan are a very charming, very hands on couple whose long love affair and deep chemistry show very strongly…even leading up to the all important…

Bibo and Li-Ann, 8 Aug 09, Capella (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Stand By Your Woman I got quite a shock when I received Bibo’s song list. Here’s what he wrote, “(I need) a band that can interpret and play a list of classic rock songs in a Jazz manner. It doesn’t have to be a straight re-interpretation of songs but I’d thought a Jazz musician is technically good enough to play and improvise rock songs. The whole song doesn’t have to sound like it, maybe it’s some kinda…

Elisabeth and Dexter, 14 Jun 09, Straits Room, Fullerton Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Josephine’s thoughts: Our Love Is Here To Stay The devil is in the detail, which is perhaps why I found the wedding of Dexter and Elisabeth last Sunday so devilishly divine. Held in the beautiful Fullerton, rooftop cocktails accompanied by an evening view of the old city segued into dinner in the charming Straits Room one floor and gilded-elevator ride below. Guests were dressed to impress in tasteful cocktail outfits, and took their seats as among the select few close…

ASPRI Golf Tournament Dinner, 31 Mar 09, Tanah Merah Country Club (Corporate Live Music/Band)

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…

Pearl and Andy, 17 Dec 08, Holiday Inn Park View (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: You’re Still The One Pearl and Andy’s wedding was the first at which I’ve played at where the couple weren’t newlyweds at all…but the second half of a celebration of the enduring romance between a husband and wife who had got married in Myanmar years before. And it must be true that with practice comes perfection, because the 17 December celebration for Pearl and Andy went off with aplomb….the couple were gorgeous both in the traditional Burmese wedding…

(Wedding) Ee Waye and Mike, 23 Nov 08, Regent Hotel

Jo’s thoughts: 幸福的女人 (Happy Lady) The lovely Waye and Mike were wed at the Regent Hotel, on the 23rd of Nov, 2008…to the congratulations of so many happy guests that the attendees spilled from the main hall into the charming hotel lobby, where they were served a sumptuous bufet. Every last detail spoke of the intricate gorgeousness of the event, from the delicate feather adornments on Waye’s train and the bridesmaids’ wrists, to white and pink balloons framing the stage,…

(Wedding) Audrey and Vernon, 18 Oct 08, Club Chinois

Jo’s thoughts: Que Sera Sera It was simultaneous coziness and class at Club Chinois, Orchard Parade Hotel, at Audrey and Vernon’s wedding reception on a sunny Saturday afternoon. In this tucked away alcove of old-world Oriental charm amidst the busy Orchard Road district, the couple gathered friends and family to witness their wedding solemnisation as they prayed for bliss and exchanged vows of forever on a brand new and wonderful journey. All blushes and beauty and love and laughter, resplendent…

(Wedding) Xavier and Kelly, 6 Sep 08, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford

Jo’s thoughts: Let There Be Love On 6th September 2008, Xavier and Kelly were wed, and A Little Dream was fortunate enough to be part of the Franco-Singaporean festivities. That’s right, Xavier the dapper Frenchman swept Kelly the Singaporean sweetheart off her beautiful feet, and consequently has made a promise to be her support in our sunny island for the rest of their lives. To witness this promise were a multitude of guests from both continents including one table from…
