Bevlyn’s Concert @ Recital Studio, Esplanade on 29 Jul 2011 (don’t miss this!)

 Bevlyn’s Thoughts: ‘Feel About You’ My new album ‘Feel About You‘ is going to be released…. very soon! I don’t know the date yet (sometime in July), but one thing for sure is… a concert! Together with a fantastic band lineup, I’ll be performing songs from this album, which consists of a good mixture of covers (for eg. You belong to me, Just the two of us, My eyes adored you etc…) and originals (which I’ve written over the years…

(Wedding) Philip & Jasmine, 09 April 2011 (Luncheon), M Hotel (Banquet Room)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Nobody (But You) “没有你们,我就不会有这么漂亮的新娘。。。” (Without you, I will not have such a beautiful bride) Yes, that was exactly what Philip said in his thank you speech to his new parents-in-law. Indeed, Jasmine looked ravishing that evening. The thank you speech was heart-warming, but there were moments which made everyone crack up too – Jasmine thanked his father for having the foresight to buy her dowry 13 years ago… Wow! Jerome, Jixiang, Shawn and I were ecstatic – 4-piece…

Andy and Shirley, 20 Nov 2010, Plaza Parkroyal

Felicia’s thoughts: Sweet!! Andy and Shirley are really sweetness personified. (Think Teddy Bears on proposal day) Andy is the traffic warden at St Anne’s church, the goodie-two-shoes well loved by everyone. Shirley is the adorable lady with a dazzling smile who won his heart. Earlier in the day, we got to see the video of Andy doing all the impossible tasks assigned by his bride’s sister (the full package – from the very skillful painting "Wo Ai Ni" with a…

Anthony and Vivien, 13 Nov 2010, The Legends, Fort Canning Park (Palm Terrace)

Sofyan’s Thoughts: What A Truly Fun-filled Wedding! Not the usual Chinese wedding dinner style, it was more Western (or Down-Under) influenced wedding, with the good looking bride-and-groom and guests dancing on the dance floor to the mix of slow and upbeat ’60s themed live-band. Nevertheless, they still did the traditional Chinese Yam Seng x 3 (with Shawn’s drum roll). One highlight song must have been "Uptown Girl". In the words of Vivien herself: "Uptown Girl quite describes our relationship at the start, erm,…

Jason & Joanne, 12 Nov 2010, Swissotel Stamford

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: LuckyThis was a fun wedding…for the musicians – cos we got Shawn in with his drum kit, and that made a lot of difference! Groovy songs like 1,2,3,4, and the pop-rock ballad Ever Ever After were given more dynamics because of the drum set!  Personally I’m surprised Joanne chose the song ‘Remember me this way’, which was dedicated to her sisters. Taken off the soundtrack of ‘Casper’, this song is 15-year-old this year! 😀  Another favourite for the…

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…

Keith and Elissa, 17 Oct 2010, Raffles Hotel

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Haven’t Met You Yet When I met Keith, I couldn’t quite imagine him as working in the SAF. His boyish good looks reminds me of someone who could be in the IT or teaching profession. According to Keith, however, he’s a Military Expert. A good thing about working in the Singapore Armed Forces is that you can get your colleagues to dress up in their military best for a swordbearers’ welcome. I’ve seen this dozens of times.…

Lex Mundi 2010 Asia Awards Dinner & Dance, 1 May 2010, Atrium Ballroom, Mandarin Oriental

Shawn’s thoughts: Star Awards It was like STAR AWARDS! The band dished out 15-20 second snippets of popular jazz and big band tunes as the winners smiled their way up to the stage for their awards and thanksgiving speeches.  Take a look at Matthew’s notes: The Mandarin Oriental banquet staff went the extra mile to make sure the band gets not just the same beverages and delicacies but the same quality service their guests enjoyed. Thank you! The second half of the…

Kim Boon and Charlina, 11 Apr 2010, Amara Sanctuary Resort (Sentosa) (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: A Love That Will Last If you’re single and have a close friend of the opposite sex who likes to bicker with you, who knows, that person could be the one for you! Okay, I get that it’s too simplistic a view.  But for Charlina and Kim Boon, the initial dislike Charlina had for her eventual knight-in-shining-armour became an attraction, which blossomed into love.  In spite of the constant arguments, there was an undeniable chemistry between them. Some of their…

Kelvin and Sese, 13 Mar 2010, Four Seasons (Wedding Live Band)

Shawn’s thoughts: Can’t Take My Eyes Off You I stood by the entrance while the guests streamed in and realised why we were asked to prepare two dance sets out of three. they all looked like they could really boogie! The speeches and montage all say that one same thing about Kelvin and Sese; they consider very much for others, and very much so was seen on their wedding, on one of the biggest days of their lives. When Kelvin and Sese opened…

Boon Pin and Mei, 16 Jan 2010, Four Seasons (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: Top Of The World When I first arrive at the ballroom, I was blown away by the wedding decor. Check this out (sorry we blocked some lovely flowers right behind us): L-R: Fabian, Melvin, Chiou-Yun, Bevlyn, Shawn Arranged by the professional wedding planner Wedding Entourage, the band was proudly located on an elevated stage next to the main stage. With 5 of us on it, we felt like we were indeed delivering a concert; even guests at the…

Fong Yee and Wenyao, 21 Nov 09, Chijmes (Wedding Live Band)

Shawn’s thoughts: Two Words Everything about chijimes was just so right for Wenyao and Fong Yee, from the venue to the decor…they even handpicked the band members! The couple displayed great elegance very subtly, and the band was deeply attracted to further pleasure the guests; to complete the tasteful evening the couple had prepared for them. It was a delicate evening of swing, and we swung like never before. A little girl of 6 dedicated a piano piece to the…

Celine and Preman, 1 Nov 09, One Rochester (Wedding Live Band)

Shawn’s thoughts: Let Down, Let Go, and Get High Eager to move, ready to sway. An intimate group of friends and relatives who boogied a full 90mins and asked for more! Judy, our singer for the evening, was snappy quick to suss out the guests’ musical preferences and modified our songlist to hook the “gold people” while entertaining the party fellas. She also got a french guest to dedicate “With Or Without You” by U2 to the couple, with everyone…

Justina and Dae Ro, 30 Oct 09, Raffles Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Jo’s thoughts: My Way It’s always lovely to see the enthusiasm that our foreign friends pour into our time-honoured tradition of the Chinese wedding banquet. Justina and Dae Ro are an international couple of Singaporean and Korean origins respectively, and bride, groom and their families threw all aspects of their different cultures into the mix, making for one fabulous fusion banquet! While ostensibly following the conventional program of the wedding banquet – cake cutting, cross drinking, yam seng and assorted…

Chin Hong and Magenta, 18 Oct 09, Merchant Court (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 甜甜的 (Sweet) Magenta and Chin Hong had arranged for a violinist, Lin Hui, to perform violin solo during the cocktail session to welcome their guests to the wedding. And then almost as if to usher the crowd into the ballroom, the band was scheduled to start singing 2 songs at 8pm. And sure enough, 2 songs after, the 1st march-in occured shortly. With Jixiang on guitar, Shawn on percussion, and I on the vocals, we entertained the guests…

Ivy and Boon Huat, 3 Oct 09, St Regis (Wedding Live Band)

Shawn’s Thoughts: Fly Me To The Moon A wedding fit for royalty. That was what i thought when i stepped into the ballroom with my barang barang.  From the palatial ballroom fixtures to the exquisite wedding decor, this couple was determined to give their friends and relatives a memorable wedding celebration. About a third of the guests flew in from Hong Kong to attend the wedding.  The wedding planner was astute enough to engage an emcee who was proficient in Cantonese.  His experience…

Joanne and Kenneth, 26 Sep 09, Villa Halia (Wedding Live Band)

Hui Bing’s Thoughts: Love In The First Degree If I can describe Kenneth & Joanne’s wedding in three words, it will be Full, Fun and Fantastic. Full as we had a fuller band accompanying me and Jerome that night – Jixiang on guitar, Ivan on sax and Shawn on percussion. The music from this dynamic trio in black was as tight as a button, perfect for the disco and uptempo songs that the couple has selected. I didn’t know that…

WPAS Social Nite, 12 Sep 09, Waterfront Ballroom, Grand Copthorne Waterfront (Corporate Live Music/Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: For Once In My Life Q:What happens when you put a bunch of wedding photographers in a room? A: They shoot each other, of course. My lame excuse of a joke aside, I was thrilled when I got a call from Edmund, the treasurer of The Wedding Photographers Association (Singapore) (WPAS), inviting A Little Dream to be the official band for the WPAS Social Nite. The social nite was really an opportunity for photographers and other wedding…
