Keegan and Susanne, 30 Oct 2010, Traders Hotel

Adeline’s thoughts: Love Will Keep Us Alive I smiled to myself when I found out that Susanne was a fan of Corrinne May. I love Corrinne May too and I immediately thought of playing a few of her songs if the opportunity arose. Don’t know if Susanne realized, I played “five loaves and two fishes” as an instrumental after the 2nd march-in, during the Champagne pouring and first toast. Keegan and Susanne struck me as a very sincere and sporting…

Gavin and Diana, 3 Oct 2010, Gallery Ballroom, Traders Hotel

Tanya’s thoughts: 家后 (Queen Of The House) It was surprises galore on the night of Gavin’s and Diana’s big day. Gavin prepared a special number, 家后 dedicated to both the couple’s parents. His smooth vocals shone through and the audience were thoroughly thrilled with his performance. The night’s climax had to be during the yam seng ceremony..Halfway through, just before the third toast, the emcee who was also part of the troop of brothers, announced (very impishly) that the brothers…

Joyce and Jeng Yuan, 10 Jan 2010, Gallery Ballroom, Traders Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Ariel’s thoughts: Can’t Take My Eyes Off You What makes a wedding dinner memorable? After performing at several weddings, I think I can make the following observations, which Joyce and Jeng Yuan had checked: 1. Make sure everyone is on the same page – Jeng Yuan and the hotel banquet IC took time off their busy schedules to brief the wedding band on the proceedings of the wedding dinner. This helped ensure that the wedding proceeded without a hitch. 2.…

Ricky and Jenny, 26 Jul 09, Poolside, Traders Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 我可以 (I Can) Ricky and Jenny eschewed the traditional sit-down Chinese dinner in a hotel ballroom. Instead, they chose to have a sumptuous buffet reception beside the pool of Traders Hotel. It was my first time performing at there, and I think these photographs do justice to the serene and beautiful surroundings: Taken from the Traders Hotel website It was a really relaxing wedding; everyone seemed intent to just eat, chill and enjoy the live music. Ricky…

(Wedding) Stephen and Amy, 6 Dec 08, Gallery Ballroom, Traders Hotel

Jun Xiong’s thoughts: 你最珍贵 (You’re The Most Precious) My first impression of Stephen is a sunny (well-tanned), polite, and friendly gentleman who is exceptionally popular among his circle of friends and colleagues. I am proven right easily from the fact that his ‘brothers’ during the morning wedding ceremony do not comprise only his buddies, but also his boss Calvin who flew all the way from overseas to attend his wedding! And when I first saw Amy during the same night,…

(Wedding) Jaclyn and Ivann, 22 Nov 08, Traders Hotel

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: The Book Of Love Kudos to Jaclyn for remembering her first date with Ivann so vividly: “Our first date was on June 12, 2002 and it was at Mr Bean. I decided not to order any food as I was pretty nervous and shy! Although I was very hungry, I only ordered a drink. But when I saw Ivann’s food being served, I couldn’t help it and I finished most of his food! I wanted to be…

(Wedding) Sonya and Kenny, 11 Oct 08, Gallery Ballroom, Traders Hotel

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Collide Five minutes in Sonya and Kenny’s company will leave you without any doubt that the two are meant to be together. I had the pleasure of their company one June evening at Borders, and I was completely charmed by them. They regaled me with the fascinating story of how they met, fell in love, and gained the blessings of both families. This could fill up an entire blog entry, so I shall be brief. They were…

(Wedding) Paul and Charissa, 14 Sep 08, Temasek Room, Traders Hotel

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Unbreakable Paul and Charissa’s wedding is the middle of a triptych of weddings that started with Joanna and Mark’s union in January, and would end with Frederick and Sarina’s reception in December. All three couples are close friends, and I feel honoured to be invited to perform at their weddings. Joanna was the emcee that evening, and I asked her if she would be springing any sort of surprise on the couple. At first she demurred, and…
