Thomas and Nicole, 19 Dec 08, Peony-Jade Restaurant (Wedding Live Band)

Hsin Yeow’s thoughts: My Way

It’s been three months since A Little Dream last performed at Peony-Jade. I was so happy that Thomas and Nicole got married there because I missed the friendly staff and great food! Kenny, the manager, was manning the fort that evening, and we managed to catch up during a rehearsal break.

James and I had a fantastic time at the wedding because we got really enthusiastic reactions from the guests.

– When James and I started our set, I saw couples turning their chairs to face the stage. One lady sang (very loudly) along with me, and serenaded her husband, who looked amused and touched at the same time.

– While I was singing Grow Old With You, this little girl was toe-tapping along with James during the interval. It sounded like she had been taking tap dancing classes!

– Song requests came thick and fast. I sang 家后 (Queen Of The House) for the bride’s father, who wanted to hear a Hokkien number. Another guest requested My Way, a song that James could play without any prior rehearsal.

– There were three toddlers laughing, swaying, and hopping along with me onstage. Their laughter was infectious and I couldn’t stop grinning when I saw them enjoying the music.

– The happy faces of Thomas and Nicole as James and I bid them goodbye. Thomas clasped my hand in his and shook it enthusiastically, thanking me for the music. I wanted to say to him, “The pleasure was all mine.” Congratulations Thomas and Nicole!

P.S. I had a post-wedding high when James, a guest at the wedding, contacted me a day after to engage us for his wedding. Thanks, James!
