Joseph and Eeling, 15 May 2010, Amara Sanctuary (Wedding Live Band)

Juliet’s thoughts: Lovin’ You My first time gigging with James on Bass, though I’ve witnessed his chops as an audience before. He’s just as wonderful a bass player as a pianist! Niq and Sharon were terrific that night, and we all had a really good time just swinging the night away to jazz standards and revamping old classics. The couple looked fantastic and it was great to be able to share their joy. I loved the songs selected by the…

Natalie and Kugan, 27 Mar 2010, M Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Shawa Shawa I couldn’t have summed up the evening more effectively than Ian, who said, “It was an unbelievably fun night for me!” It was for the band too. Natalie and Kugan’s wedding marked many firsts for us. The first Bollywood-themed wedding, for one. And the sight of more than twenty guests forming a Conga line and dancing to this infectious tune: Shawa Shawa! Another memorable moment was Kugan’s elegant speech. He likened marrying Natalie to hitting…

Karen and Kenneth, 6 Dec 09, Chihuly Room, Ritz Carlton (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Built To Last The match of the century: Bon Jovi VS Tommy Page Who will win? In Karen and Kenneth’s wedding, everyone wins. I sweated for many nights when I first got the song list. It was clearly the result of two distinct tastes in music. Kenneth’s contributions were songs like Wherever You Will Go and Spin (both of which I grew to love), while Karen’s favourites were probably Arthur’s Theme and Flying Without Wings. More lovely…

Chris and Peggy, 21 Nov 09, Gallery West, Suntec City (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Angels Brought Me Here I felt privileged to be at Chris and Peggy’s wedding celebration, not just because the couple trusted us implicitly to provide a night of rousing music, but also because I was privy to information perhaps not many others knew about. Chris shared with me a particularly heart-wrenching period of their relationship. This was about three years ago, shortly after Peggy left for studies in Australia. It was a trying time when they had…

Sam and Merisa, 27 Oct 09, Pacific Ballroom, Pan Pacific (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon As musicians, we often ask a lot of ourselves, and strive to give each performance the same amount of energy and passion as if it’s our last. But sometimes the band only sounds as good as the sound system will allow. That’s why I was thrilled when I knew that Sam will be bringing in a separate sound system for the band. As owner of one of the “big boys” in the…

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…

(Wedding) Frederick and Sarina, 5 Dec 08, Ocean Ballroom, Pan Pacific

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: You Had Me From Hello Singing at Frederick and Sarina’s wedding must count as one of my wedding career highlights. Not only did we have a great response from the crowd, I got to meet three other couples who had engaged me for their weddings earlier. It all started when Angela and Ferris engaged me to sing for their celebration at Goodwood Park. Frederick, Ferris’ brother, had already thought about approaching me to sing for his wedding.…

(Wedding) Wayne and Simin, 17 Oct 08, Furama Riverfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 世界唯一的你 (The One And Only You In The World) All’s fair in love and war, as they say. The story goes that Wayne overhead his schoolmate professing his interest in Simin. But Wayne was secretly carrying a torch for the demure, leggy young lady. So Wayne went on the offensive, and sought to win Simin’s heart. After a particularly enjoyable night out, Wayne sent an SMS to Simin, asking if she’d be his girlfriend. Simin didn’t make…

(Birthday) Sylvia’s Birthday Party, 30 Sep 08, Smoochies

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 你是我的唯一 (You’re My Only One) It’s hard to top a birthday celebration like the one for Sylvia. It had all these great elements: presence of family and close friends, heartfelt speeches, presents (there were lots of them!), surprises and — ahem — a live band playing all your favourite songs! It was clear that Terry, Sylvia’s husband, loves her to bits. Not only did he organise the party, with the help of Ivy (restaurant owner of Smoochies)…

(Wedding) Lilian and Derek, 14 Sep 08, Raffles Hotel

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Till the End Derek and Lilian’s proposal story is like a scene from a romantic movie 🙂 “Derek had secretly planned an overseas trip to Bangkok during our proposal day. There he was appearing at my office building that morning and said “Just come down, we are catching a flight.” I was like “Huh, what flight?? To where??” Unknown to me, he has obtained prior approval from my boss. Hence, I went ahead with him to the…

(Wedding) Anthea and Alvin, 14 Sep 08, Marriott

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: On This Day It’s a tremendous responsibility to be both emcee and performer at weddings, but I do enjoy the challenge of making each performance meaningful and memorable for the couple and their guests. It always helps if I have the couple’s trust. Anthea and Alvin trusted me implicitly, to the extent that I got Alvin to deliver an impromptu thank-you speech! The couple hadn’t planned to give one, so I decided to guide Alvin by highlighting…

Jo-Lyn and Yew Minh, 19 Jul 08, Grand Copthorne Waterfront

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: So She Dances One day, Jo-Lyn remarked to Yew Minh, “You know Minh, I’d love to take up dance lessons.” Minh’s reply, “Me too!” The dance they both decided to learn was the Waltz, commonly known as the dance of love for its fluid and graceful movements. And what better occasion to showcase their dancing skills than their wedding? And what better song than So She Dances by Josh Groban? I fell in love with it upon…
