Brian and Crystin, 1 Jan 09, Orchard Parade Hotel (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: 小薇(Xiao Wei)

I couldn’t have asked for a better wedding to start the new year!

First of all, Brian had complete trust in us to deliver a night of great music. As he only landed in Singapore two weeks or so before the wedding, we did not spend much time discussing the details. All he had to do was hand me the list of songs he would like us to sing, and pray very hard for the night to go smoothly.

I was glad to report that things went swimmingly! The guests warmed up to us pretty quickly, when I sang 一人一半 (One Half) and got some of them to sing along with me. Things went uphill from then on. In fact, the one word to describe the audience was “high”. Some guests couldn’t wait to be part of the entertainment. One table of guests, in particular, were egging each other on to get a microphone and perform with me!

At least 3 guests from as many tables took turns to sing solo: 情非得已 (Can’t Help It), 小薇(Xiao Wei), 每天爱你多一些 (Every Day I Love You More).

The uncle who sang 小薇(Xiao Wei) even did an impromptu jig in the middle of the red carpet! He brought down the house!

Many thanks to the couple who stood up and danced along to the music too. It was really touching to see them so engrossed in the music.

Brian’s face was glowing with happiness when he shook my hand after we were done. Just knowing that we exceeded his expectations was a great start to 2009!

Thank you so much, Brian and Crystin, for engaging us!

Compliments from Brian:

Hi Hsin Yeow

What can I say? Everyone was full of praises and so many of my guests were so happy and relaxed.

We were really glad that we engaged you. Actually, I don’t know why but I have complete trust in you, probably its the effort you put into your blog. The PA system didn’t do enough justice to you and your guys but still you manage to turn in a magnificient performance!

Will send you some pictures when I get hold of them and good luck for 2009!

Regards
Brian
