China Club Wedding Live Band Music Emcee

Daniel & Emerline, 5 Jan 19, China Club (Wedding Live Band – Guitar Violin Stroller Duo)

Emerline & Daniel‘s wedding celebration took place at China Club, which has a strong oriental vibe. Hence when Doris, Emerline’s sister, thought of engaging a live band as a wedding present, she knew that she wanted Shanghai jazz as the music for the event (scroll down for repertoire). Truth be told, we were excited to perform there because China Club boosts of such a wonderful view… be it by the day… or by the night… The duo also strolled around…

(Birthday) Birthday Party, 27 Feb 2011, Tung Lok Classics (Orchard Parade Hotel)

Audrey’s thoughts: Can You Feel The Love Tonight There are many reasons which make a gig memorable. This particular one left me a deep impression because: 1) It’s my first time performing for a birthday celebration 2) It’s my first time performing at Orchard Parade Hotel Tung Lok Classics 3) It’s my first time performing to such a small and intimate crowd, consisting 2 tables of 18 people Although it was a pretty last minute enquiry, I was excited the…

Daniel and Alice, 19 Jan 2011, Shangri-La

Imelda’s Thoughts: In My Life The past year of my life had flown past really quickly. I was just lamenting to a good fellow musician friend how I’m getting older and more wrinkly… and honestly feeling a little sad about it… The very next evening was our performance at Shangri La for Daniel and Alice’s wedding. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by the groom’s brother Desmond and good friend Pradip, and a little while later by the groom himself.…

Rachel and Ken, 5 Nov 2010, Concorde Hotel

Juliet’s Thoughts: 玫瑰玫瑰我爱你 (Rose Rose I Love You) Just when i thought there could not be new ways of doing march-ins, Ken and Rachel surprised us with their very sensuous 2nd march-in, with bride Rachel sashaying down the red carpet and the groom striding down to meet into a dance, so much that that’s all i can think about to start this blog entry. I found myself feeling those tears wellin’ up whilst watching their pre-march-in videos, and surprised myself. It’s when…

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…

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…

Carmy and Craig, 12 Sep 2010, Raffles Hotel Lawn & East India Rooms (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: I’m Beginning To See The Light Carmy probably never imagine she’d find true love on the other end of the world. According to Carmy’s good girlfriend, when she arrived in Bahrain, they used to lament at the lack of quality dates – the available but bad dates are these, aplenty in the Middle East. The high quality ones were rare, that was, until Craig joined Carmy’s company. It was a small but cosy wedding with Craig’s family flown…

Rachel and Kelvin, 10 Sep 2010, Fullerton (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 玫瑰玫瑰我爱你 (Rose Rose I Love You) I really enjoyed watching the video shown during Rachel and Kelvin’s wedding celebration. First of all, the song chosen was Daddy’ Angel, and the lyrics are really touching. The video also showed Kelvin and his friends dancing to Wonder Girl’s Nobody and Aaron Kwok’s 对你爱不完 (Everlasting Love). I’m surprised the latter has endured till now. Take a trip down nostalgia lane by watching the video below: We had a great time…

Joshua and Bijun, 25 Jul 2010, Sheraton Towers (Wedding Live Band)

Tanya’s thoughts: 夜上海 (Night In Shanghai) Although there was no specifically mentioned theme for Joshua and Bijun’s wedding, it was apparent the moment we arrived at the foyer area. There was small trishaw tucked in a little corner and guests were taking photos in it. On the tables were some decorative items such as the old-styled Chinese umbrellas and paper fans! The ballroom was resplendent with the bright red hues and decorative red lanterns. Yes, it seemed to be ‘Shanghai…

Mdm Tan Boon Liang’s 81st Birthday Celebration, 24 Jul 2010, Gardenia Room, Shangri-La

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 外婆的澎湖湾 (Grandma’s Peng Hu Bay) When I first got to know that I’d be singing for Mdm Tan’s 81st birthday, I was so thrilled! There is more than her longevity to celebrate about, but also the fact that there are so many children and grandchildren by her side to make this celebration possible. See the balloons and the longevity peaches: The repertoire for this performance consisted more of Mandarin classics and even Hokkien numbers, but I gamely took…

Steven and Charlotte, 3 Jul 2010, Meritus Mandarin (Mandarin Court) (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 爱的路上只有我和你 (You And Me On The Road To Love) Steven is one of the rare grooms I’d met who was really daring to serenade his bride. During rehearsal, he was full of ideas and even got James to sing 1 verse of the song before he ‘sings-in’ during 2nd march-in with Charlotte by his side. James and I were really impressed by his confidence – he sang this lovely song 爱的路上只有我和你 (You and Me on the Road to Love),…

Eswaran & Jennifer, 26 June 2010, Regent Hotel (Nassim Room) (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 夜上海 (Shanghai Nights) This was a wedding that really used live music to set the ambience – Jennifer arranged for the band to perform the 1st set with English jazz and classics, and the 2nd set with Shanghai jazz, so the theme was set clear apart between the two march-in. Jennifer looked absolutely alluring with her red cheongsam, and I was happy she took on my suggestion of using – 一见你就笑 as her 2nd march-in song – as…

Dave and Priscilla, 29 May 2010, York Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Tanya’s thoughts: Especially For You It was a really sweet gesture from the aunt of the bride to hire us to sing at Dave and Priscilla’s wedding. The selection of songs went down well with the guests and from the feedback and applause, they seemed to have enjoyed themselves. We were touched by the hospitality and concern that the couple’s relatives had for us, ensuring that we were comfortable and well taken care of. When the couple made their speech,…

Jean-Paul and Stacey, 22 May 2010, Raffles Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: I Believe This is probably the wedding which I perform songs in the most number of languages, specifically, I took up the courage to learn a Korean song – ‘I Believe’, made popular by the Korean movie ‘My Sassy Girl’.  It was a bit unnerving, I had to admit! On the actual day when I arrive for soundcheck, curiosity drove me to read the name cards placed on the rows of long tables. To my surprise, 2 of…

Kien Beng and Miaoling, 17 May 2010, Mercury Ballroom, Furama Riverfront (Wedding Live Band)

Judy’s thoughts: 月亮代表我的心 (The Moon Represents My Heart) It was a pleasant evening, with cool breeze and trees swaying gently as I walked to Furama Riverfront. So I was already feeling very chilled when I arrived at Mercury Ballroom. I was early, so the hotel staff were still setting up. I was greeted warmly by the manager who was instructed by the couple to take care of the band’s dinner. Thanks Kien Beng and Miaoling! Appreciate the thoughtfulness and prompt…

Jess and John, 28 Feb 2010, Noble House (Wedding Live Band)

Junxiong’s thoughts: 我们的爱 (Our Love) Getting married on the 15th day of first month in lunar year is definitely a golden choice that most Asians will look forward to for their Big Day. This is because apart from being the Lantern Festival (元宵节), the 15th of Lunar month is also treated as the Eastern Valentine’s Day (东方情人节). And this is precisely the auspicious date where our lucky and cheerful couple, John and Jess, tied their knot! According to Jess’s sister,…
