(Wedding Live Band) Eran and Nam Na, 20 Dec 08, Parkroyal (Beach Road)

Jun Xiong’s thoughts: Quando Quando Quando

Advice to all grooms: if bridesmaids insist that you sing a song before you can meet your bride, do what Eran did: choose one of the easiest songs ever written, 小薇 (Xiao Wei), then change the lyrics to fit in your beloved bride’s name.

Guaranteed to make doors open for you. If it still doesn’t work, then you just have to prepare a bigger ang pow 🙂

有一个美丽的小女孩
她的名字叫作 (insert name of bride)
她有双温柔的眼睛
她悄悄偷走我的心

Eran’s heartfelt singing was one of the highlights of the video which captured the morning events when Eran went to fetch Nam Na.

Eran and Nam Na

One of the memorable moments of the evening was the warm response from the wedding guests. As Eleanor and I had similar backgrounds in vocal training, our voices blend really well; coupled by Jonathan’s inspired playing, we got enthusiastic applause after almost every song.

We were even asked to do an encore of Quando Quando Quando. To make it fresh for the audience, we sang the song in two different ways: jovial and fast-tempo, in contrast to the initial slow bossa mood.

Congratulations Eran and Nam Na! Thank you for engaging us to be part of your special night!

Band: Eleanor, Jun Xiong, Jonathan Ang

Jon, one of the most talented young musicians we know, is currently a postgraduate student at Guildhall. He recently returned home for a fortnight, and I wasted no time booking his time for this wedding. In Eleanor’s words, “Jon went to town with his jazz solos!”
