Peter and Sandy, 3 Dec 2010, Swissotel Merchant Court

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 恋之憩 (Love’s Resting Place) Sandy emailed me to say that she would like to sing a song to surprise Peter on their wedding day, and unfortunately there was no time for rehearsal, not even before the wedding day itself. After giving her speech, she shared with everyone that she’d like to sing a song for Peter, and with the band at the other far end of the ballroom giving her musical support, she broke into the lovely 新谣 (Singapore…

Rosalind and Jae, 4 Nov 2010, Swissotel Merchart Court

Jerome’s thoughts: 你最珍贵 (You’re The Most Precious) Singing has never been easy for Rosalind and Jae, yet they were game enough to sing for their 2nd march in, infront of their family members and friends! It was a very brilliant act, and the family members and the rest of the guests were surprised and awed! Judy, my female singer, played up the entertainment by inviting a guest to dance and sing with her for several songs. The guest was very…

Daniel and Jessica, 25 Oct 09, Swissotel Merchant Court (Wedding Live Band)

Serene’s thoughts: Lovely Before the couple’s march-in, Daniel and Jessica’s guests were treated to a special video filmed for their wedding. Shot in Tokyo, we saw Daniel and Jessica, dressed in their suit and wedding gown respectively,embracing each other in one of the many “cross junction” pedestrian crossings surrounded by skyscrapers and neonlights, visiting the Tokyo Sky Tower and finally a scene where Daniel rode off on a motorcycle, with Jessica holding him tightly as they travelled in style, back…

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…

Jason and Charmaine, 25 May 09, Swissotel Merchant Court (Wedding Live Band)

Matthew’s thoughts: Can’t Take My Eyes Off You It’s hard to go wrong with a combination of 2 highly-seasoned performers from the local Mandarin-pop scene; I had the pleasure to work with Zheng Quan, an established vocal coach based north in JB, and the ever-effervescent Tian Yao, multi-talented singer-cum-guitarist-cum-harmonica-ist (yes, he will do all 3 at the same time if the price is right!) Quoting my dear Commanding Officer’s speech at my Battalion Day last week (3 cheers for reservist!),…

Janelle and Darren, 10 Jan 09, Swissotel Merchant Court (Wedding Live Band)

Juliet’s thoughts: 牵手 (Holding Hands) Windson and I had the fortune of meeting the lovely Janelle on another wedding where she decided to invite us to sing for her wedding on 10th Jan. The first thing that caught me by surprise was that the couple had, according to the manager, requested that we perform centrestage. It was different to have all the attention on the musicians, which was in the way nice and allowed us to address everyone when we…

(Wedding) Lydia and Anthony, 26 Nov 08, Swissotel Merchant Court

Bevlyn’s thoughts: 钟爱一生 (Everlasting Love) For Lydia and Anthony’s wedding, I was paired up with one of Lydia’s best friends from secondary school days, Teck Beng. He was the excellent choice to be my co-emcee because knowing the couple himself, he shared with the guests his memories of how the couple came together. He recalled Anthony asking him about Lydia out of the blue one day; then he noticed Lydia’s sudden interest in the World Cup (she was never interested…

(Wedding) Rena and Sax, 9 Sep 08, Swissotel Merchant Court

Jonathan Ang’s thoughts: Forever Love Sax & Rena’s wedding was quite a welcome departure from what I usually do at ALD weddings. Instead of playing the keyboard, I filled in the role of emcee and singer instead, with Clarence on the guitar. Also, instead of going for a full set of songs, the couple opted to go for a small selections of songs to highlight the important moments of the dinner, while Clarence would charm guests with a repertoire of…

Kathleen and Alvin, 27 Jun 08, Swissotel Merchant Court

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts – 你的名字我的姓氏 (Your Name, My Surname) The story goes that Kathleen was mesmerised by Alvin’s voice one day when both of them were at a karaoke joint. Alvin sang 你的名字我的姓氏 (Your Name, My Surname), a moving ballad with beautiful lyrics and a soaring melody. I particularly like the simplicity of the chorus: 从此以后无忧无求 (From now on, I have no worries or desires) 故事平淡但当中有你 (My story may be simple, but because you’re in it 已经足够 (It is enough)…
