Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: Shake Your Bon-Bon!

What a good looking couple!
Singing for Charmaine and Brendan was akin to attending a reunion party.

Brendan was the main coordinator for Jack’s wedding, and he and Charmaine engaged us after listening to our performance. Jack flew all the way back from the US to attend Brendan’s wedding, so I got to see him again. Another familiar face was Sherwin, who was host for both Jack and Brendan. (Sherwin’s a wonderful host, by the way.) As I spoke to both Jack and Sherwin, it was as though we had been friends for a long time. But that’s how I treat the couples (oh, I abhor the word “clients”) for whom I perform. As friends.

I was also glad that Charmaine did what I suggested for her second march-in. When the doors opened to the tune of 夜来香 (Fragrance In The Night), Brendan strode purposefully to the centre of the ballroom, turned around and waited, looking suave and debonair in a spiffy black suit. As the music swelled, Charmaine danced her way in, wearing a flaming red cheongsam and brandishing a little black fan. She had a fiery glint in her eye, and minced her way down the red carpet with amazing poise. When they finally met, Brendan stretched out his hand, and twirled Charmaine into his arms. Everyone broke into thunderous applause.

The night’s performance ended on a perfect note when Sherwin grabbed the hand of a guest and went onstage to dance when I sang Sway. While they were shimmying up a storm onstage, Brendan and Charmaine, in the midst of taking photographs with their guests, were also ordered to dance. They were sporting enough to join in the fun. I later found out that Brendan was captain of his University jazz dance group. Chey! No wonder he looked so comfortable shaking his bon-bon.

Band: Hsin Yeow, Jonathan Ang and Boon Chye

It was my first encounter with Boon Chye, and I must say that the experience was wonderful! Boon Chye’s virtuosic skills and Jon’s inspired accompaniment was a magical combination. I almost forgot to sing at certain points, so enthralled was I by their playing.

Wedding Tip:

Create a bit of drama for your entrances!

Compliments from Charmaine and Brendan:

Truth to be told, we hadn’t in mind a band for our wedding dinner. But while attending Jacky’s wedding in early July and appreciating the music from A Little Dream, topped off with Hsin Yeow crooning, we knew that we had to get them on board for our wedding party!

No questions asked and we didnt even bother to ask for other quotations/comparisons.

Good also that we both love Jazz music which the band does very well too. Special requests were also met with no additional costs!

Thanks for adding spice to our wedding night! Thinking back in retrospect, if we didn’t have you guys there, it would be like having KFC chicken without the mash potato! Haha, rather lame analogy , but you get the drift..

Xie Xie and see you at Bobby’s!!!

(Hsin Yeow: Love the analogy!)
