Ariel’s Thoughts: Built To Last
This was a wedding lunch with all the works – which hotel serves Peking duck during pre-banquet reception! As usual, the band, comprising of Ian, Junxiong and me, set up the equipment early. To my surprise, Ian had brought his massive Bose amplifiers to the gig, which contributed warmth to the band’s sound. With a good start to the day, the wedding lunch began with the march-in song, At The Beginning, followed by a good mix of English favourites, Chinese and even Cantonese pop. A good point to note, these songs were specially selected by the couple which would certainly resonate with their guests from all walks of life.
I was very impressed with Alvin’s move to present an extremely entertaining photo montage of his and Catherine’s childhood and courtship days, which was peppered with Alvin’s witty comments and heartfelt demonstration of love for his wife. Such a personal touch would certainly make their wedding reception unforgettable and memorable. We are extremely grateful for the assistance Four Seasons had rendered the band, which helped make our performance a success. Finally, we thank Catherine and Alvin, as well as A Little Dream, for engaging us for the wedding reception. Here’s wishing Catherine and Alvin a lifetime of bliss and happiness!
