Yong Chuan and Qing Qing, 23 Oct 2010, Peony Jade, Keppel Club

Shi Li’s thoughts: 爱你在心口难开 (Love You More Than I Can Say)  Meeting Qing Qing and Yong Chuan for the very first time, I could tell they were very heartwarming people, from the songs that they had chosen for their audience and how the guests react to them from the march-ins, and all the way to the end of the wedding. I was deeply moved by Qing Qing’s speech to her parents and in-laws, infact she had especially requested for a…

Steven and Anne, 8 May 2010, Peony Room, Peony-Jade, Keppel Club (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 与你到永久 (Together Forever) I love performing at intimate weddings with less than 20 tables. It’s easier to forge a connection with the audience, and you get their reaction to your music almost instantaneously. To celebrate their marriage, Steven and Anne invited their a cosy group of family members and friends to Peony-Jade at Keppel Club. Feri and I had never performed there before, and I liked the decor of the Peony Room. The staff were also polite…

Yvonne and Tony, Zhen Cai and Chun Yan, 28 Feb 2010, Peony-Jade (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 花好月圆夜 (Beautiful Night) There’s a Chinese saying called 双喜临门, which means “double happiness at your door”. This was certainly the case for the wedding lunch reception I performed at on 28 Feb. For the very first time in my performing career, I performed for not one, but two wedding couples. Yvonne and Zhen Cai are siblings, and although they were got engaged on separate dates, they chose to hold their wedding reception on the same day. Zhen…

Lian Bin and Xiu Juan, 11 Dec 09, Peony Jade, Clarke Quay (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: 可爱的玫瑰花 (Beautiful Rose) Could dancing children be an indicator for good music? I really hope so. Ein and I couldn’t stop smiling seeing the cute toddlers, decked to the nines in their dresses and tiny suits, gyrate and sway themselves happily to the songs which Lian Bin and Xiu Juan have selected for their wedding. Ein and I started the evening with the uptempo song ‘可爱的玫瑰花 (Beautiful Rose)’ as their first march-in song and already, I could…

Lance and Suzhen, 10 Dec 09, Peony Jade, Clarke Quay (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 细水长流 (The Meandering River Flows On) When I arrived at 6pm, I was surprised to see the whole entourage setting up at the reception and the restaurant. One of the friends told us, “Lance is very punctual, so we’re very punctual too”. Indeed, the banquet kicked off well before the standard 830pm. We thought it would be nice to start our performance delivering the dedications from Lance and Suzhen to their parents. Here’s their heart-felt and impressive dedication:…

Jit and Brell, 21 Nov 09, Peony Jade at Keppel Club (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Your Song Jit & Brell have been together for 7 years, and after being engaged for 3 the last years, they finally tied the knots this November. Here’s the couple’s answer to me when I asked if they have any interesting stories to share: “Brell learnt not to let Jit organize holidays after he arranged a weeklong trip to Russia, with a visa for only two days, which resulted in the Singapore Consulate having to rush to our…

Cedric and Shelly, 1 May 09, Peony Jade Restaurant (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s thoughts: Beautiful Love This SMS brightened up my morning: “Gd Morning, Hui Bing and Junxiong. 🙂 This is Cedric n Shelly. Looking fwd to your performance this evening.. Hope you like the songs we have picked…” When we met them in person that evening, Cedric and Shelly were indeed as warm and friendly as their SMS. And I did enjoy performing the songs they had selected that night. Understanding their guests’ preference, they chose a longer list of…

Andy and Deborah, 14 Feb 09, Keppel Club, Peony Jade Restaurant (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s thoughts: Love Song It was an unconventional Valentine’s Day for Jixiang and I this year, as we decided to celebrate it together with Andy and Deborah at their wedding at Keppel Club. What was also memorable for us was the repertoire of songs which the couple has chosen – interesting and very wide, from the usual wedding ballads, to songs that are usually sung in a pub such as Love Song, Chasing Cars and Angels And Devils. Though…

Thomas and Nicole, 19 Dec 08, Peony-Jade Restaurant (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: My Way It’s been three months since A Little Dream last performed at Peony-Jade. I was so happy that Thomas and Nicole got married there because I missed the friendly staff and great food! Kenny, the manager, was manning the fort that evening, and we managed to catch up during a rehearsal break. James and I had a fantastic time at the wedding because we got really enthusiastic reactions from the guests. – When James and I…

(Wedding) Vernon and Wyendi, 14 Sep 08 (Lunch), Peony Jade

Bevlyn’s thoughts: When You Know Vernon and Wyendi got to know each other 6 years ago through one of the most common match-makers these days – the Internet. They were online pals for years but they never meet up until Wyendi decided to ask Vernon out for a few games of pool. For the coming weeks they met up on every weekend and soon became a couple. When asked what Vernon likes about Wyendi, this seemingly man-of-few-words only gave me…

Thomas and Patsy, 19 Nov 06, Peony-Jade Restaurant

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Starry Starry Night Photo by Zhi Yong from Dawn’s Wedding, which is across the causewayIt takes a village…to plan to wedding. It’s no wonder that some couples approach it like they would a major project or operation. They delegate, and outsource. With regard to wedding entertainment, the responsibility was given to the groom’s brother, Teory. And we’re glad that Teory engaged us, for he was a joy to work with. He gave us free rein to design…

Shawn and Charmine, 27 Oct 06, Peony-Jade Restaurant

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 12-Year Chase Some people drive with their gear stick anchored firmly in the fifth, while others prefer to take the scenic route, enjoying the sights along the way. Shawn and Charmine belong to the latter category. On the relationship highway, they clearly preferred to take it slow, and dated each other for 12 years before tying the knot. And when I met them for the first time, they were teasing each other endlessly, a trait which is…

Cass and Melvin, 14 Jan 06, Peony-Jade Restaurant

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Shanghai Night The 2 Js are a lethal combination. Apart from being blessed with good looks, they are also fantastic musicians. Jon “Saxy” Lim wields his instrument like he’s possessed by the spirit of Stan Getz, while Jon Ang’s fingers fly across the keyboard with consummate skill and ease. Eleanor and I were very excited to work with them for the first time, and I think our enthusiasm showed onstage. We also had fun singing songs like…
