Julius and Yanlin, 23 Oct 2010, Marina Bay Sands

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: You Are So Beautiful Julius told me he didn’t prepare a thank-you speech. So I tried to give him a few pointers: thank you guests, thank your parents (and parents-in-law) and finally, thank your wife. Turns out he didn’t need my advice at all. His eloquence made Yanlin blush. Here’s what he said, “Most the times, I don’t even know how to take care of myself. But I will do everything in my power to make sure…

Joelle and Goldwin, 18 Sep 2010, Minjiang (Wedding Live Band)

Juliet’s thoughts: 爱情的魔力 (The Power Of Love) It’s a real joy exploring new ways of singing old sounds. If you don’t know me by now, that’s always been my greatest interest. My deep desire to understand what my parents love, but also the richness of the culture and the language Mandarin, combined with the mad freedom of jazz and improvisation, I couldn’t be happier to be able to make it for this wedding in the end when something miraculously shifted…

Sean and Jean, 24 Jan 2010, Riverfront Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Zheng Quan’s thoughts: Love Is A Powerful Spell The story of Sean and Jean proves that love can be quite a powerful spell as it influences and changes a person dramatically. Sean and Jean met at a mutual friend’s gathering at a chalet. At that time, Sean did not leave a very good impression on Jean, who thought he was unfriendly and quite “beng” (hostile looking). However after a few days, they got to know each other better and Sean…

Jinrong and Shiying, 26 Dec 09, Canning Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Judy’s Thoughts: 小夫妻 (Small Couple)  It was a fun gig with Jerome. The couple decided to put Jerome and me right up there on stage with bright spotlights shining on us. It was as though we were holding our own mini concert. Shiying & Jinrong I definitely enjoyed myself up on stage as I could see all the guests, and could interact with them much better in that way.The guests really enjoyed the music and they reacted positively to our interaction and was often…

Sheauhui and Edwin, 13 Dec 09, Grand Hyatt (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon A common ‘grouse’ from couples who engage us is that they seldom get to sit down and properly enjoy our performance, simply because they are running around to change into another outfit or chat with their guests. So they recommend us to their friends who are also looking for a wedding band, so that they would be able to enjoy our music as guests. Sheauhui’s e-mail came after having received recommendations from…

Ying Ying and Eugene, 28 Nov 09, Novotel Clarke Quay (Wedding Live Band)

Judy’s Thoughts: 小夫妻 (Little Couple) Eugene and YingYing – a match made in Heaven. This lovely couple is probably the sweetest couple I’ve ever sung for. Days before the wedding night itself, I have had smses, emails and even MSN chats to find out if there’s anything the band would require, what kind of food we would like to have, and if I need a wedding emcee script. And so they prepared a wonderful script for me (Thanks!) and also…

Zhuo Jian and Peiling, 1 Nov 09, Marina Mandarin (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: 暖暖 (Warm) Zhuo Jian and Peiling loves songs by Fish Leong (梁静如) so the entire songlist was peppered with the Malaysian pop princess’s songs – 5 in all! I thoroughly enjoyed singing these songs – some of them popular karaoke hits, such as 勇氣 (Courage) and Fly Away. Linus and I were deeply encouraged by the warm response from guests – thanks to the excellent sound that the hotel provided that night, complete with a spotlight! A…

Zhiguang and Huifen, 2 Aug 09 (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 出嫁 (Getting Married) The eloquent emcees at Zhiguang and Huifen’s wedding described the couple thus: Zhiguang was 忠厚老实 (loyal and sincere), while Huifen was 秀外慧中 (beautiful and intelligent). The audience agreed, and clapped enthusiastically when the bridal couple entered the ballroom for their solemnisation ceremony. I remembered being impressed by Zhiguang and Huifen’s sincerity when they turned to the audience and bowed deeply (bent their bodies at 90 degrees) after the solemniser pronouned them husband and wife!…

Kimberly and James, 11 Jul 09, Four Seasons (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Only You James’ best man Kenny delivered a hilarious speech which gave some of James’ little secrets away (things I wouldn’t want to blog about here haha), but among all that, one line which gave me a big laugh was, “James, don’t be afraid Kim will leave you; she’s spent way too much time training you!” Of course I’m not sure about the training part, but when it was time for James to speak that evening, I was…

Johnny and Jerlynn, 20 Jun 09, Collyer Ballroom, Swissotel The Stamford (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: I Finally Found Someone “Hi Hsin Yeow, Jerlynn and I lived in the same neighbourhood and attended the same primary school. We didn’t catch each other’s eye even though we bumped into each other a couple of times while growing up. I went to Australia to pursue a degree, and when I returned home, I met her by chance at Starbucks on Christmas Day 2006. I was waiting for a friend, and when I saw her through…

Dean and Candy, 13 Jun 09, Goodwood Park Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Better Man Dean’s gung-ho, never-say-die attitude made him an instantly likeable guy. For example, I wish I were present at the gate-crashing just to watch the bridesmaid’s faces as they see Dean and his band of brothers turn up wearing pirate outfits! I doubt anyone can keep a straight face in front of a ‘pirate’ who wears glasses and has a winning smile. See exhibit A below. This ‘pirate’ can sing too! After some hemming and hawing,…

Feng-Ji and Jane, 6 Jun 09, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Ivan’s Thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet) We found out that there was a romantic story behind Feng-Ji and Jane’s choice for their 1st march-in song – 陪我看日出 (1st March-in) (Watch The Sunrise With Me). Before they got together, Feng-Ji had asked Jane to meet him at 6am to watch the sunrise together, and his request was turned down by Jane as it was too early. Jane eventually agreed when he proposed 6.30am instead! The couple also had a detailed 13-page ‘Wedding…

Ching Lin and Wai Leong, 17 May 09, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 分享 (Share) Ching Lin had caught our band several times when she attended her friends’ weddings – Lin Sia, Su Lee, and Lilian. I’m suspecting that this might be our longest word-of-mouth chain with Ching Lin’s as the 4th wedding we’re singing among this group of lovely ladies! Wai Leong was a tad nervous that evening, but Ching Lin was notably enjoying herself – it was a sight to behold, watching her sway her shoulders when she walked by…

Gladys and Quee Tiong, 16 May 09, Orchard Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s Thoughts: 甜甜的 (Sweetness) Performing at Gladys and Quee Tiong’s wedding was, in a word, sweet. First, the songs they picked were mostly light-hearted and bubbly (e.g. 爱爱 (Love Love), Love Paradise, 甜蜜蜜 (Honey Sweet), 今天你要嫁给我 (You’re Going to Marry Me Today), I Do (Cherish You), 小酒窝 (Small Dimples)), perfect for an acoustic setting. Second, Gladys’ friends prepared a special video just for her, to celebrate their friendship. They obviously put in a lot of effort; apart from heartfelt…

Alan and Laraine, 15 Feb 09, Marina Mandarin (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: L-O-V-E Alan and Laraine’s attraction for each other was not love at first sight. In fact, they didn’t think much of each other at the beginning – Alan has a skin tone a shade too dark for Laraine, and Alan thought Laraine was not that slim and tall for a SIA girl. But as we know it, the works of destiny is wondrous. The 1st march-in was a well-orchestrated one – CD music was played to usher in the…

Denis and Joan, 17 Jan 09, Hotel InterContinental (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Grow Old With You Joan described how she met Denis so vividly, I was transported back to “1997 at Coffee Bean (Boat Quay) on a Friday.” In her own words, “It’s always Friday where I’ll drive there after class and have coffee with friends. Denis too, will do the same. Funny thing is that, he will always sit outdoor and I’m always indoors enjoying the air-con. So, we noticed each other through the glass panels and that’s…
