Opening Launch of Wisteria Mall, 28 Jul – 5 Aug 18 (Corporate Live Band)

If you live in Yishun, you would have known by now of this new mall that sits in the middle of the neighbourhood! Wisteria Mall features a good variety of shops that cater to the residents nearby… and we were thrilled to be a part of their opening celebrations that spanned over 2 weekends! With Justin helming the guitar, we had singers coming in on different days to entertain the shoppers. Yokez performed Chinese pop, Khim performed English Top40s while…

(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…

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…

Desmond and Chee Koon, 7 Nov 2010, Marina Bay Sands (Simpor Junior Ballroom)

Junxiong’s thoughts: Unforgettable! 7th Nov is indeed an unforgettable day for Desmond and Chee Koon: they were engaged in Las Vegas on 7th Nov 2008, held their Chinese wedding banquet on 7th Nov 2010, and 7th Nov is also the birthday of our lovely bride, Chee Koon! To complement it, Desmond gave Chee Koon a pleasant surprise by celebrating her birthday on the stage with all the guests during the wedding banquet. What a sweet and thoughtful partner he is.…

Adele and Irwin, 16 May 2010, Peach Garden (Wedding Live Band)

Adeline’s thoughts: 花好月圆 (Beautiful Flowers, Full Moon) This was Adele and Irwin’s second wedding reception. They had one just the night before, with an alfresco theme, for their friends. This second reception was mainly for their older family members and relatives and what a small world it was. Just as we were warming up, we had two guests who came up to us to tell us that they remembered us, that Hui Bing and I played for their daughter’s wedding.…

Hui Ling and Francis, 17 Apr 2010, Grand Park City Hall (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 邂逅 (Encounter) Before Hui Ling met Francis, they were “at peace with the possibility of staying single”. That silly notion was banished the moment they set eyes on each other. There was instant chemistry, which grew to an attraction so strong that both accepted each other’s quirks. According to Hui Ling, Francis compares prices of groceries when making purchases, even if the difference was minuscule. In Francis’ eyes, Hui Ling is a soft-hearted girl who is easily…

Fang Ting and Shu Hong, 6 Jun 09, Jade Site 1, Rasa Sentosa (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s Thoughts: If We Hold On Together I was deeply touched by this particular stanza in one of Fang Ting’s emails, : I don’t think I can find anyone except Mr Wong Shuhong who can do anything, everything and nothing with me! That’s so much things we love doing together, skating, music, playing boardgames and computer games, driving out at night when there’s a sudden yoghurt or ice-cream cravings and so on. Even when I picked up knitting, he tagged along…

Koonli and Wilson, 26 Mar 09, Sheraton Towers (Wedding Live Band)

Bevlyn’s thoughts: You Needed Me This giant croquenbouche is one which caught my eye when I walked into the ballroom. I’ve seen a few others in weddings before, but I have to say this is the biggest! Wilson told me later on that this was actually part of the package by Sheraton Towers. Oh well, I’m sure the guests for that evening were delighted to have something new to try for their dessert!   One of the highlights of the wedding was…

Emilyn and Boh, 7 Oct 06, Furama City Centre

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Woh-woh-ye-ye! Everyone and their uncle was getting married on 7 Oct, or so it seemed. Our band had to be divided into two groups, led by Bevlyn and me respectively, in order to perform at three weddings on that day alone. We also had to decline several requests which came too late. First wedding of the day was held in the afternoon at Furama City Centre, which is located in the heart of Chinatown. I was really…

Andrea and Euirip, 18 March 2006, Garden Suite, Oriental Hotel

Bevlyn’s thoughts: What’s yum seng in Korean? Andrea’s husband, Euirip, is Korean. So why did they throw a traditional Chinese banquet for their Korean relatives, including the yum seng? It reminded me of Hikaru and Moe Moe’s wedding last month. Hikaru told me he felt that the yum seng part was a very Singaporean thing to do, so he went ahead with it. I was gawking at lovely traditional Korean costumes worn by Euirip’s parents. They looked almost regal. For…

Raymond and Zee Zee, 19 Feb 06, Orchid Country Club

Bevlyn’s thoughts: A Moment Like This This was an interesting experience because even though we had sung in the Ruby room of the Orchid Country Club before, we had not been to the outdoor porch, the Octagon. When I arrived at the venue, I was quite impressed that the country club decided to make use of the open space below the grand staircase, which overlooks the picturesque golf course. It definitely is an ideal location for buffet meals. Raymond seemed…
