Matthew’s Thoughts: L-O-V-E
Whoever said Singapore is a small country obviously hasn’t attended a wedding at Changi Beach Club. For the 4 or us staying in the west (WEST SIDE ROAR!) it’s a pilgrimage to the east that paid off with a night of funky groovy dance-ish music that the groom Jim specifically requested for! We were given free reign to play whatever we wanted, and that’s really refreshingly fun. Imagine telling the girl at MacDonalds “Yeah just give me whatever you think I would want to eat” when ordering.
So we started the evening slow with our usual romantic songs, and worked it up toward the end with the high-and-hot-groovy 3rd set which ended just as the guests were engaging the dessert. Anyway, the place is really nice as it overlooks the sea, and if your guests arrive before 7pm, they do get to enjoy the sunset. yes i know we’re in the east. you still get to see it. trust me.
It’s a nice restaurant, which was renovated in Oct ’09. However, the wooden flooring and glass windows without curtains didn’t help with the sound. It got slightly boomy and echo-ey. Then there’s the issue of parking. Once you get beyond these issues, you might really enjoy considering this venue for intimate occasions.
Well other honorable mentions include a Taiwan Variety-show-ish performance by a daughter of the couple’s friend (can’t remember her name, but can’t forget her dancing) who just rocked the stage with her songs “Venus” and “Duo Ke Ai De Mei Gui Hua”. She’s like, 9? 10? Singing and dancing, real pro stuff here. Us in the band were just busy guessing her age. Thankfully she didn’t do numbers from our setlist. Kudos to her for living my dream!
