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.…

Hein and Gwen, 27 Dec 2010, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La

Bevlyn’s thoughts: A Moment Like This As shared by Hein, this was their first moment meeting each other: “We met in Oct 2003 when we both just started work at the Monetary Authority of Singapore. The first day we saw each other was when we both attended the MAS orientation. I was sitting across the room from her with about 20 other newbies. I found it interesting and surprising that there was a pretty girl sitting across the room that…

Theo and Rachel, 25 Jul 2010, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Two Is Better Than One Sometimes, you get invited to a wedding because you have gotten to know either the bride or groom many years ago. And you wonder how the couple met each other and fell in love. Theo and Rachel clearly believe in filling in the gaps for their family and friends. They lovingly produced a video which traced the journey of their lives, starting with the sentence, “Theo is the eldest in a family…

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…

Wei Jian and Alice, 10 Jul 2010, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s Thoughts: The Proposal When it came to The Proposal, Wei Jian spared no expense. He chose to pop the question at Rasa Sentosa, where they had their first date.  He booked a hotel room as a decoy and three other rooms as part of the surprise. All other grooms should read this: “On June 26, our 3 and 1/2 years anniversary, my dearest hubby planned a BIG surprise for me. The Once in a lifetime I will never ever forget proposal.…

Norman and Annie, 12 Jun 2010, Pavilion, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Matthew’s thoughts: Dream A Little Dream This has got to be one of the fastest-organized wedding gigs I’ve done. Wedding’s on Saturday, I think I got the call on the Tuesday before. Nonetheless, we rounded up the band – Melvin on bass and Imelda singing – and got straight to work. The solemnization was held at a top secret well hidden corner of Shangri-La, it’s the poolside pavilion which doesn’t really hold more than 10 tables we were told. So…

Jessica and Vincent, 8 Jun 2010, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 爱是永恒 (Love Is Eternal) Performing at the Island Ballroom of the Shangri-La always gives me the sense of occasion. The plush decor, the vastness of the ballroom and the attentiveness of the staff are all winning factors for me. Having just returned from a trip overseas, I was particularly excited to perform again. Jessica and Vincent’s wedding gave me the opportunity to sing with Bevlyn and Ein Ein, and I knew I was in for a treat.…

Jianxiang and Andrina, 4 Apr 2010, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: Bewitched Half a year ago, Andrina contacted us to engage a live band for her wedding. Everything was over emails, and we met only on the wedding day itself. it’s cheap thrill I know, but I love to discover how the couples I’m singing for look like on the actual day itself. Of course there were bad times when I mistook the best men as the grooms, but these incidents were really rare (and too funny to be…

Chay Pin and Lulu, 31 Jan 2010, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Adeline’s thoughts: 就是爱你 (Just Love You) What makes a wedding special and memorable is when a couple adds a personal touch to it. For Chay Pin and Lulu, they decided to sing for their 2nd march-in (今天你要嫁给我 – Marry Me Today). And I must say they did a really good job. With smiles from cheek to cheek, holding each other’s hand, looking into their partner’s eyes and singing the song as they walked down the aisle, it was a love…

Jiahan and Florence, 24 Jan 2010, Shangri-La Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Ian’s Thoughts: Thank you For Loving Me   What a massive, massive wedding this was! Over 100 tables, I was told. Amongst the notable guests in attendance were the Minister for Law, and MP for Hong Kah GRC. It was a night of two celebrations as the couple had chosen to wed on the same lunar date- only 56 years later- as the groom’s paternal grandparents. Beneficiaries of the family’s altruistic lineage were present to celebrate the new couple with…

Barry and Jeslyn, 10 Jan 2010, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s thoughts: Grow Old With You After the 2nd march-in, Barry was asked to complete five sentences (in the dialect Hokkien) starting with “I love you because _______ “. Barry’s answers were: 1. “I love you because you are very pretty.” 2. “I love you because you are very good.” 3. “I love you because you are very adorable.” He ran out of words, and the emcee asked him to complete the last two sentences by sharing with everyone present…

Kevin and Lixia, 9 Jan 2010, Island Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s thoughts: 甜蜜蜜 (Sweetness) We often get to hear about how a groom proposed to his bride on their wedding day, but what are the chances of watching a clip of the actual action that took place? Well at the wedding of Kevin and Lixia, guests were treated to a video montage which featured Kevin’s actual proposal to Lixia at East Coast Park. The couple was at the pier when Kevin presented her with flowers, got down on his knees…

Yao Ming and Javis, 3 Jan 2010 (Lunch), Island Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: These Are The Moments Yao Ming and Javis got to know each other as colleagues, and 8 years down the road, they celebrated their wedding at Shangri-La’s Island ballroom with 14 tables of families, close friends and relatives. ‘Small-scale affair’ as Yao Ming coined it, but with the high ceilings and the majestic decors of the Island Ballroom, I thought it made it all the more exclusive 🙂 The guests were a tad quiet that afternoon at the…

Darren and Yijue, 25 Dec 09, Tower Ballroom, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Darren had a tough time figuring out when to propose to Yijue. Apparently, Yijue managed to find the ring each time they went on a romantic trip overseas. Darren said it quite succinctly, “I can’t keep any secrets from her!” I had such a great time performing at the wedding. The spirit of Christmas was certainly in the air, and when Eleanor sang, “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, I could…

Deborah and Ken, 5 Dec 09, Garden Terrace, Shangri-La (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: You’ve Got A Way “Hi, I’m planning for an engagement party this 5th of dec in the Shangri-La hotel-garden terrace. I happenned to come across your band online and thought it would be a great idea to invite you guys to share this joyous occasion with us.” What a fun party it was! Eleanor and Justin provided the entertainment, and served up a tantalising menu of jazz standards and love songs. The guests were enjoyed the intimate…
